hey guys n gals... been snooping for a while and I figured I'd post :eek:
I've been wanting an Elise since before they came to the US... and suffice to say I was ecstatic when they did... and if all goes to plan I will be putting in an order for an Elise SC(sport pack, hard top, starshield, Storm titanium):drool: a little bit later this year. Also... unless someone beats me to it... it will be the first elise on the island of Kauai(no dealership here so it would have to come from Oahu... which means I have to do everything myself). Ive been driving a 2007 2dr Yaris for the past year... Base model... doesn't even have a stereo/radio... I coulda put one in, but it would have taken money out of my Elise fund :nanner2: I'll have to put a license plate cover on my Yaris that says "this is my big car" once I get the Elise. We have no proper tracks on Kauai :( but the road up to the mountain in the center of the island is a block from where I live so it will have to suffice :shift:

I think there is an Aubergine (purple) Elise on Maui, and an Elise or 2 on the big island & Oahu ? Maybe once a year you guys could all meet up on the big island, hire a cargo plane ? ;)
Welcome!

Enjoy. I can't put the thing down. Makes my Audi TT feel like a tractor.

If I were to be living in Kauai, the only problem I'd have is not enough roads to take advantage of the fun the car has to offer. That's the first thing I thought when I was there this past year. I don't know all the roads there, so maybe there really are some good ones. Then again, I'm spoiled by the awesome roads in the Santa Cruz mountains in Nor Cal.

But if an Elise is on your want list by all means do what you can to get it! It's an experience like no other, and you'll have lots of people checkin out the car, and fun times ahead! Go for it!!!
Cheers,

Welcome! I hope it works out for you. Kauai has some lovely roads in my opinion. It is one of my favourite places. When you get your car you will be the luckiest man on earth. Great car and great place to live!

Yah, the Exige S 240 is something I dream of, but I have to say the rest of the Lotus line of cars are well worth owning! Yes, I wish I had an Exige S 240, but when out driving my 'justa' 06 Exige, the smile on my face makes me forget... Until I start reading the forums again... You'll love any Lotus you can get... really.
Cheers,
Skottoman
