I purchased this car in October of this year and planned to use it as my daily driver. After a couple months in Seattle I regret this decision and I am looking to switch back to something more logical for the Seattle climate.
The car is nearly in identical shape as when I purchased it, with the following exceptions: The headliner was sagging on the hardtop, so I had it reupholstered. The car came with a 2 stage exhaust installed and I replaced it with the stock exhaust (will include the stage 2 exhaust if desired). I replaced the speakers and head unit, so the car now has Bluetooth connection and hands free calling. Finally, there was a slight clicking in the steering, so I replaced the steering rack with the higher quality Titan steering rack from Elise Parts.
Heat blows hot, A/C blows cold.
This car includes the touring package which includes leather seats, door panels, power windows, and extra insulation on the soft top.
It also includes the optional $1,500 hard top (and carrying case) that you won't find with many of these cars for sale.
Car also includes the original Lotus Elise manual and tool kit. It also comes with a green and yellow car cover and two sets of keys and key Fobs!
There are two scratches/scuffs on the passenger seat. I took close up photos of these. I'd guess there's probably a way to greatly reduce or fix this blemish, but it never really bothered me enough to want to deal with it. Everything else on the car is great. It has a few tiny nicks/marks closer to the under carriage, but nothing noticeable unless you're doing a really close up inspection. It's in line with what you'd expect for a car with 30,000 miles on it, basic wear and tear.
The previous owner painted the wheels with Plasti Dip. He did a pretty good job, so I just left it on, but it could easily be removed if you do not like the black wheels.
