If you consider 20K miles plus/minus to be 'low miles,' and it IS, then you might find something in your price range.

If you're hoping to find an excellent car with sub 10K miles with HT and sport, you'll probably have to wait awhile. That's way below market for a really low mileage car.

I'm in the right place to make a market for an Elise. Time and price are essential elements of the transaction. The relationship I establish with a seller is at least as important.

I'm selling my Ardent Red Elise in anticipation of an 08 SC purchase...

It's got about 2500 miles with Sport Pack AND I'm on the East coast! (Not to mention several upgrades). Unfortunately, I don't have a hard top due to the fact that I garage it during the winter months. I'm sure you can find a top either on the boards, Ebay, or at your local dealership.

My asking price is a wee bit higher than $34000 though. If you'd like to discuss details, please feel free to message me anytime.

I'm not sure I follow your point, but my head may be a bit groggy from getting the day started earlier due to the time change.

That said for both AR's for sale/just sold that folks replied to you about in this thread, both were for more than you budget by $2K to $4k, and neither had a hardtop, so you'd throw in another $1500 (close average) to buy a used HT if you buy a car without one already.

Good luck, I hope you get the car you want at the price you want. But right now the car you describe, especially as you narrow the list with low mileage, specific color and options and geographic location, from a small number of total cars to begin with, could be a bit tricky to find at the below market price you want to pay.

It IS a buyer's market right now, sorta. But the bias swings closer to the seller as a buyer narrows his or her 'wants' for the car.

You're going to need to find somebody in a 'must sell' situation. That can happen, you'll just need to be patient.

I have a storm titanium without hardtop in your price-range. It has track-pack suspension. pm if interested.

Anything yet? I'm posting mine publically tonight--and it'll be on cars.com and ebay.com soon. Nice weather's right around the corner and I've got my eye on a sweet 08 SC!

Mission accomplished!

As some of you know my son and I were looking for a car for him. My son bought Chris D's car.
