I have been looking at buying an Elise for a while now and think the time has come to make a move. Before doing that I wonder in there is anyone in the Couth Orange County, CA (I'm in San Clemente) area that could show me around their Elise and give me the benefit of their ownership experience.\

I have a few specific concerns that may be real or may be imagined . . . !

Many thanks,

Ian

I'm sure there's a cars and coffee in or around orange county. If I would have know before I bought my elise, I would have saved me self a lot of time. I went to dealerships that were selling lotus's to asked my question. You are right ask a owner not a sale person.

Hi,
I plan to be at C&C Irvine tomorrow as I was last weekend, just though there might someone else who might like to give some advice. I've seen a couple of Elise (Elises?) in San Clemente . . .

Just go up to any of the owners, and they'll gladly tell you all about it. Just don't ask how much they paid for it right off the bat!

I may be there tomorrow. Still on the fence but If I'm there I'll bring my orange Elise and I'd be happy to talk to you.

Lol I hate when people ask how much did you pay. My response is "just a little bit" haven't found a good response. Any suggestions?

I'm always surprised at the lack of manners when someone asks how much I paid for any of my toys. I would only ever ask a good friend. Fortunately most of my toys (vintage cars or motorcycles) came to me as basket cases so the answer wouldn't mean very much to most people. However, my stock answer is "more than my wife thinks!"

Is there anyone in Orange County, CA that would be willing to take me for a short drive in their Elise? I'd just like to check the last few boxes before making a move on one for myself.

Thanks
