I just wanted to let everyone know that Sports and Specialist Cars in Hopewell, NJ gave me the nicest dealership experience I've ever had, anywhere, ever.

I was there for some warranty work and problem diagnosis on my 05 Elise. The salesman Paul was a really cool guy, very knowledgeable both about the old Astons they had, and also about the new Exiges and the 08 Elise SC. He took the time to show me some really cool books they had laying around on old European cars (old Alfas, Lancias, etc). Ed was also extremely nice, both him and Paul just really made me feel welcome and at home, even though I obviously had no intention of buying cars, or whatever. I was simply there for warranty work - no other dealership would be as awesome and as professional as these guys were.

The service guy from Steel Wings, Jim, took care of my car for the day. Apparently this was the "other" Jim with the glasses, since there are two Jims, lol. Replaced some things under warranty, took pictures of a paint problem I'm having, and diagnosed my idling issues. He was VERY knowledgeable, smart, attentive, and had a quick well thought out answer for all of my silly questions. He was extremely helpful, and entirely professional and just plain nice throughout the whole day.

I highly recommend these guys. If you live in NJ, this is where you should go if you own or want to own a Lotus. Even if you dont live in the state, it is well worth the drive.

Thanks Sports and Specialist Cars/Steel Wings!

I just had my first service experience with the Elise today, and I am totally glad I drove the hour + to Steel Wings/ Sports and Specialtist cars!

I absolutely want to echo the original poster's comments about the service there, it was fantastic. Jim, the mechanic, addressed all the things on my used Elise that needed to be done, even the factory updates that I had no idea I even needed. I was able to ask him many annoying technical questions and he answered in a friendly, helpful manner.

The other gentleman there, Paul, took me on a tour of the shop and show room, which was really neat. Both men were great to deal with.

All in all, it was definitely the most enjoyable, unstressful auto service experience I have ever had. I will never take my Elise anywhere else.

Kudos to Sports and Specialst Cars!
