Hi all,

There is only one main dealer in Perth for purchasing the Lotus Elise. How much servicing cost do they charge and are there any other service centres out here?

I had a look at this:

http://www.elises.co.uk/servicing/index.html

How often does the elise S need servicing till 100 km or 5 years. Just trying to get a rough idea in case it cost more than $20k for servicing in 5 years. Current price for 08 model is $70k driveaway :o

Are there any hidden costs in owning one?

Cost is not the issue, expertise is. You can't service it like a Toyota and most places that got the contract to do it haven't got much clue.

Don't ever have an accident as they don't even know how to put it back together. reliability and leakage worsens after a few services. Not a good thing esp when they are rare even in SA.

I remember dumb shit tyre guys flipped a lotus on its roof trying to raise it on a hoist. They were too smart to read the manual on how to do it properly...  :doh: :rolleyes:

There were pics of this posted on the forum recently but I can't recall what thread this was from. It looked nasty.

Edit: Here's the pic.
