Im thrilled to be a new Elise owner! What a car! I just joined up and am looking forward to getting to know all of you. While reading some of the threads I noticed some of you are still waiting for your cars. I bought mine from Maplecrest in NJ and they had a few in stock. I couldnt imagine waiting for months for the car. Anyway, I hope to see you on the road soon.

Storm Titanium....had two. I couldnt decide between the black or red leather, decided on black, loaded including Star Shield. Sport pkg wasnt as rough as I thought, really smoothed out on the road. Im like a kid in this thing! Ill get pics soon.

Bought mine at MSRP. I talked with the manager Kurt for a while, he said there was a lot of price hikes at many of the dealers, but he was able to talk the owner out of that. Seems like a nice guy, invited me back to their show in the spring.

Congrats and welcome. I'm stunned that you were able to do this. Lucky for you, perplexing for many of us.

Rothrock has an Artic Silver one loaded with everything at MSRP right now! I'll post pictures later. I'd never seen Artic Silver; it was really nice looking! Nice pearl in the paint. I was surprised to see the Vin number: 899! They'll be over 1000 in no time...

Congratulations on your new car. I know exactly how you are feeling, since I picked mine up last Saturday. I got mine the same way, just walked into the dealership and took it home. I was not on any list. I think premiums are starting to go away. Also getting one now avoids any potential price hikes, which I hope does not happen.

I have been called a scum bag already for getting mine sooner than others waiting. This was my approach all along and it worked out.

Mine is magnetice blue, hard top, touring package with blue leather and star shield. I will put the LSS on the car later. I will get SSR wheels for the track with Hoosier tires.

Enyoy the car. It is so much fun. :D

Jeez, did I pick the wrong dealer. This is insane.
I was wondering about their list as well, the could not have made it all the way through their list already.

No, Rothrock doesn't even return calls let alone contact those on the list. Piss poor overall...
