Greetings, I'm not entirely new to this forum; having looked around for awhile now and even venturing a couple of posts. I found the information that I needed to reach a decision and as a result, I am no longer a wannabe Elise owner. As of yesterday I adopted a 2008 Elise - California edition. :clap: If you've searched LOA's website, you've no doubt seen the car. So preliminary pictures are not necessary at this point. Thanks for the many informative and helpful posts.
