If there are 2200-2400 Federal Elises to be sold this year, I wonder how many of them will wind up in the hands of EliseTalkers.

Huh?

So what happens if you are an Elise owner and you don't know about Elise Talk?

I figure we all gotta go in to the dealer at some time during ownership ...
Maybe an EliseTalk poster in the service/cashier area?
Word of mouth is another way ...
A pack of calling cards in the service area ...
It would be nice if we could arrange something through Lotus USA to send EliseTalk postcards to all owners ... maybe Xmas cards...

Not sure if any of this is even possible though. Just typing ideas ...

Its kinda like organized religion... if you didn't know about it, too f-ing bad, you're going to hell anyway.

With all the bitchin' and moaning Elisetalkers have heaped on the dealers lo these many months, I don't think they would like to see "recrutement posters" hang in their dealerships

I am a deeply religious, nonbeliever but this statement makes me wonder if we are assured a handshake from Saint Peter?

This, of course, is just me trying to be funny.

Last I checked, there were a little over 2,000 registered EliseTalker's. I think there is a pretty high correlation. We're a pretty hardcore bunch. Give it a few years and that is likely to change.

It's hard to tell, but a while back someone created a poll to see how many people had taken delivery of their Elises, and based on production at the time, it appeared that @10% of the cars were going to Elisetalkers.

If that's true, @90% of the buyers somehow manage to get along without us.

Don't forget about lurkers, usually there are more guests logged in than members, so I'll say 15-25% owners are here, but they are not all talking/voting and/or registered.

As odd as that sounds, it has been know to happen. :D

On a different note, this poll does not necessarily a bad poll. Granted it is voluntary and that introduces bias. But it asks a very simple question from a very specific crowd about an item of interest to ALL in that crowd. However, we have a very large number of lurkers and people that have not logged on for quite some time which would reduce accuracy.

Edit: Miguel beat me to it. :)

This may be obvious, but here's the best way to find out.

Have EVERYBODY who has an Elisetalk account take that poll. then the "I own a car" caregory will give you the required numebrs.
