If I can't get the SPORT PACK can I buy the shocks and springs after market, and will they fit the same?

Will they just bolt in (do they need to be adjusted)?

Can I replace the stock wheels with lighter ones?

What Iam asking, can I trun my elise into a SPORT PACK car?

Sure. But it'll cost you more to do it yourself, and when you resell it, it won't have the LSS option listed on the window sticker, which may become an issue for collector status at some point.

Actually, call your dealer. The sport pack will be available as a dealer installed option. As a matter of fact, although you can buy the sport wheels through your dealer without the springs and shocks, Lotus does not recommend doing so. It is also going to cost you roughly 33% more to have the dealer install the package.

Do yourself a favour and wait 6-12 months.

There are/will be plenty of other 'sport pack' components from 3rd party manufacturers some superior or offering different characteristics. The UK market is littered with them, also race tuning shops that will not only bolt stuff onto your Elise but also modify/adjust suspension set-up to provide improved or more use specific suspension geometry tuning. This ain't stuff you can easily do without very specialized set-up equipment.

It'll probably be cheaper too!
