Update: Now comes with 2 x sets of wheels and Stage 2 exhaust installed.

Meticulously maintained 05 Elise.

The original owner serviced it at the New Port dealership. I am an aerospace engineer by trade and do my own maintenance. I am obsessed with reliability, safety and functionality so check things regularly and replace before they fail. I have daily driven this car for over a year and have had zero issues.

Obviously Im biased but I think it is a very clean and well looked after car.

I have fixed a majority of the common issues with these car (all of the reliability issues anyway). Ie radiator, toe links, oil lines, alarm etc.


Just done a service
Oil has just been changed
New brake fluid
New K&N air filter
Gearbox oil and coolant changed at 34k
New front pads and rear tires will be installed next week



Asking: $31,500




































History:

2 Owners (technically 3 because the Denver dealership was the first. 2nd owner owned it from 05-18 before me.)
Always Garaged

Recalls done.Note: The oil line recall hasnt been done, instead I have bypassed the system with an OEM heat exchanger. This solves 2 problems, dont use the oil lines and now the oil heats up twice as fast! It heats the water more but the PROrad makes up for that.

Improvements:

Lifter bolts have been replaced
Cams are checked often (30k, 33k and 37k. Have photos of each) There are odd blemishes but no signs of wear.



BOE NAS Toe Link



PROrad Single pass radiator and hoses



Toyota OEM Oil/Water heat exchanger



OEM Coolant Radiator tank



Sector111 Stainless Steel Brake Lines
Lotus Stage 2 Exhaust
Fujita Air Intake
Alarm and immobilizer have been removed (have another anti theft setup)
Shorai LFX36L3-BS12 Extreme Rate Lithium IronAir horn addedNew padding on both seats. Feel amazing
Recent wheel alignment.

Always left to warm up considerably before going to cam switch over.

Audio – Sound system, comprised of: Surprisingly good sound.

Alpine Electronics PWE-S8 Compact Powered 8-Inch Subwoofer
Focal Polyglass 100 CVX

Flaws
Driver door pull is cracked.
AC works but its pretty average.
The star shield needs replacing. Looking old on the sills.Silver on the wheels is rubbing off in some places
