I sold the Europa this weekend so I will start looking for my Elise in the next month or so. Plan to have it by August or so. Will miss the Europa but time to move on.

Same way I know, you had one. The Europa has better steering feel, more balanced handling, and a much lighter, more nimble feel. That said, even if you put 'R's on a Europa and tweak the suspension, it still can't match an Elise for sheer cornering power and overall handling prowess. And then there's the hugely better brakes, substantially better power, and dramatically better reliability. I don't miss the Europa that much since the Elise is even more fun overall.
