Welcome.

I don't know anything about that car. Opinions here are very strong about buying salvaged Elises/Exiges.

I have a very clean `05 for sale. You can click on the link in my signature for more details.

Good luck!

I don't know that Elise, but I believe the ad is misleading. I've never heard of an Elise totalled for 'minor damage' as the seller claims. To be totalled, damage typically either includes both clamshells, or chassis damage. Just the 'fascia and a fan' and the car gets a a salvage title? Nope. There's more to this car than the seller is saying.

Also, the seller's claims of power gains from the exhaust and intake is highly questionable as well.

Just a tip, when soliciting an audience for important (to you) information, it's in your best interest not to make it difficult to decipher your questions by deliberately misspelling words or using a grammatical style no one's seen before.

anyways besides jokes if any one knows something please let me know thank u
Don't take it personal. Every forum has its norms and on LT they are weirdly sticklers about proper grammar. The demographic age is also older than on some other car forums so you don't get people using the typical IM'ing abbreviations that are so commonplace elsewhere. Your pornstar/movie username doesn't probably add any credibility in their eyes either. ;) In terms of your original question, I have noticed that people tend not to respond to such questions when others have posted the same type of thread. Maybe it is because they think it is between you and the car's owner. People will post back on VIN#s and CarFax data but not a lot of about other LT users. :shrug: Good luck on your quest for a Lotus, hopefully you will come back to LT when you get one.

I can speak cellphone speak a little. It's a lot like Orc tongue.

He's asking about a salvaged car in our classifieds section and if anyone has any information about it aside from what's posted.

I recommend he contact the seller and ask why it's a salvaged vehicle, but honestly if you can afford a non-salvaged Elise I'd rather get that instead, because you might be in over-your-head for repairs!

Check eBay under Elise. I got a new 2006 with 6 miles on it for $38,050 through Symbolic Motors last year. StormTi with the Touring-pack and hardtop. Sometimes you can get a reasonable deal.

This is the second thread you've started about this car. http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f115/newbie-57015/
If you didn't get an answer in the first one, you probably won't get an answer in this one either.

its ok to put two threads cause sometimes people look into one particular thread only so i decided to put into two so just maybe someone may know something about the vehicle
