Given a little bit of track time (maybe 1/2 dozen events a year) what would be excessive mileage for a used 2005? :shrug:
By your avatar you drive a later 911 turbo. That's a more proven platform than the Elise relative to high mileage. I wouldn't blink at a 20K example if the PPI came out alright, number of owners notwithstanding.There are also other factors to consider. I bought my (non-Lotus) with about 45,000 miles on it, but it was a one-owner car. If it had 20,000 miles on it, but had had 3 owners, I would not have even considered it.
