well it worked for offroadr35 so I'll give it a try too.

I want my Elise now. Call me impatient, but I don't have much faith in getting my wait-list spot by 1st quarter so I will pay a bit more to get it now.

Ideally I would like a CO car with LSS only but I understand I will have to be open to other colors/options.

So if anyone knows of a car let me know. I don't feel like working out the logistics of buying a car in NY so a California dealer would be perfect.

BTW, does anyone know what's involved in buying a new car out of state? Do we register the car back here in CA and pay the sales tax then or what? And is there any problem with bringing a brand new out-of-state car here for registration?

it's super easy to buy a new car out of state. you do all the tax and registration stuff in CA. it's really not a big deal...just will add some cost because of shipping.

I called almost every dealer in the country. To the best of my knowledge, the two cars at manhattan motors and whatever Huntingridge has are the only cars available right now.

Good luck,
Steve

thanks for the replies.

those prices from denver are a bit more than I'm willing to pay. I don't want to pay more than 5K over. I would have jumped on offroadr's deal!

AutoEurope has a beautiful Magnetic Blue car for over. No LSS though. I dropped the check for my 2nd (non-refundable) deposit in the mail 15 minutes ago...

I think that with the prices posted they didn't get inquiries since you can find them for $5k in other places,

For what the description read, they bought those at a premium themselves so it seems like now they are stuck with them.

Removing the price might help them get inquiries about those two cars and once they have you on the phone they'll do their job, to try to sell them at that higher price.

Congratulations! It is really a beautiful car. It's what changed AF-NCO and I to magnetic blue in the 11th hour.

just to update:

I've purchased a car from Huntingridge Motors.

I've sent the check and will have it shipped out sometime next week.

thanks for the leads.

mark starr at HRM is easy to deal with and a gentleman. I don't know how many more cars he may have available soon, but if you're in the market for an elise (and willing to pay a little over msrp) then give him a call.

:clap:

Great! Good luck too. I have to wait another 50 days or so to get mine over here.
