read everything in the forum... finding and buying the car can be alot of work. Unless you are not too picky. I started reading the forum 6 months before I wanted to buy, found my car 6 months after that.
Same as Komiko here - took me a long while to find an Elise/Exige - found 3 different deals I was happy with - all 3 fell through. I am completely ok with it as it turned out in that time I found out more about the Evora and fell in love.
Welcome! Make sure that you search on a national level to get the find the car of your dreams. You can get a lot more for the money if you do not limit your search area. I found the car with everything I wanted plus over $25000.00 in upgrades for what I was going to pay locally.A lot of us have done so and have been very happy.
