This is the most practical Elise EVER! Quieter, more powerful, more refined, greatly improved build quality. So I'm not so sure about the “ it can't be used as a daily driver argument”. People in Europe use them as daily drivers quite frequently, so are you guys... Wimps?meat said:IMHO, the Elise is a second car. It's totally not practical (for me)for everyday driving and I love it to death.
I have an S2000 and a Exige. The S2000 is the weekend car and the Exige is the track car. I use my Integra as my daily car and it takes all the abuse and the S2000 stays clean and worry free.
The Elise isn't practical if you ever move anything or if you have a female friend that wears skirts (try wearing one of those and getting in/out of the car gracefully).
I'd also imagine driving in snow with the car could be quite an experience as well.
The people buying this for a daily should be using a motorcycle now for a daily.
