I made this tonight thinking about things that you need to inspect when looking to purchase a used Elise/Exige. After it's finalized I'll post it in the Lotus cars for sale section for people to use. If you have any suggestions to add let me know and I will update it and re-post it. Let me know what you think! :D

Good idea.

I'd suggest that you order the steps according to importance, putting chassis and suspension at or near the top. I'd at least do a perimeter chassis inspection, looking for any damage, dents or prior repair telltales. Also inspect all suspension connection points looking for the same.

Serious chassis/suspension damage is a no-go and a potential buyer should stop right there with a positive finding.
