If it's any consolation, im 500 miles from a dealer and dont know anyone who can work on mine yet. Learning basic wrenching and oil changing would be good for you.Hey I'm taking delivery of my Elise on this Friday but have several concerns. I live just north of Baltimore, Md and am over 50 miles from the nearest Lotus dealer. What happens if you take it to a Toyota dealer, can they service it? I know this is probably dumb, but I have to find someone to at least change the oil.
My other question is that I noticed that there is no spare tire. doh... Does the sealent can really work?; I mean doesn't that pretty much mean you are going to destroy the tire. Is it worth buying special tires like the old corvettes ran on that you could even drive on them when they are flat because corvettes didn't carry a spare either?
