After lurking for quite sometime I finally decided to pull the trigger and get a Elise. I had a deposit one in 2004, but got impatient :wallbang: and bought a loaded G35 Coupe. I was nice, six speed, but not a Lotus. I got it at FVMC and they have been great so far. I expect the car to get here sometime next week.

I bought the CO Elise in their showroom with the carbon bits (I was planning n doing most of those anyway). My only concern is the car has been sitting for a while - should I change all the fuilds?

Ready to gooooo......:shift:

Hey TJ- I wish I lived there- I am down in Orlando where there is no service. What do you recommend doing - my only fear is the car has sat for a while. Thanks - and I can't wait!

i would change the oil and enjoy the crap out of it.....all of the other fluids should be fine, but an oil change would be a good idea.

its too bad such a nice car has to leave the state, mabey you should move up here...lol

Sounds like the carrier is picking it up tomorrow for a Wed delivery to me in FLA. Can't wait - wil post pics as soon as she arrives....well maybe a little after that!:shift:
