ok, i searched, and i even googled, didnt see what i was wondering abouit.

so, my question is, does Lotus make an actual Seat Lowering Kit for the Elise? or is it aftermarket? or just something some people have done?

Lotus doesn't make it, but you can get down low rails from Sector111. Basically what you will be doing is adjusting the angle of the seat to allow more headroom.

I'm 6'1". My helmet tapped the tent poles of my soft top. So I put in the TALLrails are Seat Rails for the Lotus Elise and Exige - Sector111 Head clearance was great, but my left knee was so close to the steering column that the legs straight out feeling was gone. A lot less comfortable. I had to swing my left knee to the left a few inches to clutch.
Kirt at Hypersport pulled the seat, redrilled the rails and moved the whole seat directly rearwards 2+ inches. Awesome now. Really fits. Line of vision is lower, just feels "racier" too.
Oh yeah, that kit is not quick or easy to install, but worth it.

QUICK. Follow this link before you pop Save me, too!

I feel like Mrs. Johnson on the playground back in 3rd grade. "Now, boys. Stop all this fighting and hostility."

You, sir, are hysterical. This guy can't be for real

******#1, to complete your quote, "if you leave our forum, if you survive [Google] recruit training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war."

Hope that your search for seats and a properly colored interior go well. I liked that movie too.

I think I will go back to hell with RoadDad now.:popcorn:

Just make sure to bring your lovely bride with you this time :evil:.

Wait. Check that. It's too hot here already ;).
Indeed.

Well, my wife finds ******#1 as inane as we do... we both hope he stays and keeps up with his antics.

The whole combination is hysterical... we should sell access to ******#1's posts! He is awesome:bow:

I can't wait to read the thread(s) that talk about the headlights, or the alarm remote range, or the window rattles...

The possibilities are endless!

To quote yet another movie, "Have you been chasing me your entire life only to fail now? I think that's the worst thing I've ever heard. How marvelous."

Sorry guys, I'm calling BullSh!t on ******#1 (sorry ******) just too many questions and lack of complete search function ability...heck, I wouldn't doubt that he's one of the school kids just being an annoyant on here...WAY TOO MANY QUESTIONS and while some sound legit, I think it may be a ploy to throw us off because....well just look at some of his question and decide for yourself.

I should copy all of ******'s questions and post them over on the Vette forums or maybe FerrariChat (that would be better -- they're pretty kind and gentle over there :evil:) and see what kind of responses come from those guys. FerrariChat would eat ****** alive rotfl.

(apk919 some PMs have been cleared.)

ViperAlley rotfl. There's not enough lube in the US for ****** there. They barb their willies before bending a new guy over and that's if you already own a Viper. It's razor wire if you don't. I've seen it happen. The horror. The horror.
