Hi everyone,

I am thinking to get a second hand elise. I have read through the forum and belive the later model with toyota engine is quite reliable and the maintainence cost is not that expensive. Just wondering if someone can give me a rough idea of how much it will cost for servcing and maintainence.

What I will need to pay attention to when inspecting the car? Is there any recommended workshops so I can bring for proper checking before purchase?

Many thanks

Welcome to AE.  There's a few threads poking around regarding maintenance etc, this one comes to mind:

You're in Sydney yeah - Simply Sports Cars keeps getting good mentions by the Lotus lads.

You're going to need to have a chat to some Elise Owners.  Also jump onto the Specific Lotus forums, I'm sure someone there will have a dedicated Elise checklist.
