Yeah, I'm worried about those speedbumps also. It seems that the more SUVs we have, the higher those get. (I have seen too many SUV drivers here in Huntington Beach who fly over speed bumps and curbs because "they can.") I think this is what prompts cities to put in larger speed bumps.

I know that my Audi A4 Quattro (lowered about 1") will scrape if I'm not extremely careful. And my Mustang SVO (on race springs - 1.5" lower) will scrape over every stinking speed bump in my townhome complex.

If the Elise (non-sport) has 130 mm of ground clearance (about 5.1 inches), then I think it will be close. I'm guessing there might be 1 - 1.5 inches of clearance on most "standard" speed bumps. Either way, get used to driving really slowly over them.
