Lately I've been checking the est wt of the Elise and some sources say 1900 lbs and some say 2000 lbs. It's sort of scaring me because I'm afraid the car might just end up above 2000 lbs. But anyways, here's another way to keep the car light. In case you didn't know, I'm going to be a clinical dietitian by the end of May so I was thinking to myself...losing extra wt would not only be healthy for some people but could also potentially be a great factor in driving a light car such as the Elise. Just a thought. When a car is so light, every bit of weight matters, and obesity is a growing problem in the US wouldn't you agree? You'll have more fun, live longer, and DRIVE longer, so get up off that thang and head for the tread mills and cycles!
