Hi everyone!

I picked up my magnetic blue '07 Elise from San Francisco tonight. It has 9,800 miles and the the previous owner fitted the supercharger.

The 101-S was very busy, but I was smiling. I've dreamed of owning an Elise since the S1 first came out in the UK (where I'm from) and now that goal is fulfilled.

I'm upgrading from an MX-5 Miata (my third), which feels like an SUV in comparison! Anyone else made that same transition?

And although it wasn't a direct transition, I had a Miata. It was what it is ... not a Lotus. Different league.

I am hoping to make the transition from a miata to an elise. I think the Miata is the entrance to the world of lighter quick handling cars.

How's the AC? Mine sucks even AFTER the thermo upgrade.. Mine was also made in March, so it was an early Elise.

Made that transition from 2 Miatas (including the Mazdaspeed). to an '09 Elise. Added the factory SC. OMG. It's a parallell universe.

I'm on the peninsula. I moved up here from SoCal 2 years ago and the furthest North in CA I've been so far is Napa!

As a photographer, I'll be definitely taking pics soon!

I used to do kart racing for 6 years when I was at school. The Elise feels more like a kart than it does a Miata.

Nice! I just picked up my 05 Elise about 6 months ago. I'm also on my 3rd miata (NA - NC - NA) -- I had to sell the NC to get the Elise (per wifey).

I went from a 1995 Miata to a 1991 Miata to a 2006 Magnetic Blue/Magnolia Elise and I am in Modesto, CA. What color interior does your Elise Have? What supercharger do you have, sounds like it might be the dealer installed, Elise SC supercharger. I'd love to check it out if we are ever in the same place at the same time.
