Hey, I'm Andrew. I don't have a Lotus yet, but I'm in the market for an 05-06 Elise (or Exige if I can find one cheap enough). Totally new to the platform but have experience working on a variety of imports & domestics and looking for something new (just sold my C6 last week). Also have some prior experience autocrossing and one HPDE day at Brainerd.

However, I have never ridden in an Elise before, and was wondering if anyone in central Iowa would be willing to give me a ride. The car isn't going to be my daily driver, but will see five or six thousand miles per year of road use and I want to make sure it's something I can ride in somewhat comfortably before I purchase one. Unfortunately the nearest dealer is probably Kansas City or Minneapolis, and I'm not looking for a new one so a test drive is probably out of the question.

How many of you decided to purchase one before driving or riding in one? Safe bet for a summer fun/weekend car with occasional track usage?

Thanks,
Andrew

I'd let you drive mine if you get anywhere near central Wisconsin...
Bought mine without a test drive. No regrets whatsoever.
