Where might I find - or would anyone know - an estimate or actual number of Elises/Exiges sold in the US to date?
Just to pick an additional nit...Number of Loti in US?
I wasn't trying to be snarky :shrug:. I was trying to be helpful. If you want a real answer, call or email Lotus USA. If you don't, then don't.Well, that was a bit stronger response than I expected. I apologize for wasting some of your time and deeply offending you, but then again you didn't need to compose a snarky response if you really had better things to do.
I did try searching but failed to compose search criteria that weren't too general.
I also specified Elise/Exige in the body of my note, but maybe you were too busy being rude to actually read the message.
I was also trying to be helpful here as well and I think Tim was also. No terribly gauche breach of etiquette to apologize for IMO. Just know if you use Loti you will be flogged in the future now that you have been warned .Also, the "Loti" was intended as humor. Again, I apologize for that terribly gauche breach of etiquette.
The guide for the searching is Ace10 . Otherwise it is hit or miss. The search isn't the greatest but it will yield adequate results if used to its fullest. Give up on the little pull down box. Click on the arrow next to "Search," then click "Advanced Search." This gives many more options to narrow your looking. The use of the * will also help in many cases. Words shorter than 3 letters are excluded, such as oil. So in order to search about oil, use oil*. Many words are excluded no matter what, like Lotus. Just brings up too many hits. Also, searching "titles only" instead of "entire posts" will cut back the number of hits you get. I still s*ck at the search function after a year of using it... but then again I still s*ck at most things ,alil'britdifferent, what is the search criteria you would use to find the answer?
I typed in "lotus sold in the us" ... It searched the word "sold" and excluded all the other words, it came up with 999 matches, most of which having multiple pages of replies. The search feature isn't the greatest so far as I can tell, unless I am not using it to its potential... which also brings up another point, is there a guide out there for the search algorithm or general tips.
Lol. I'm not saying it doesn't work. I'm just saying there are some of us that will always s*ck at using it.This thread was started on 1/23/08
