a little better, but not much
the sill is lower rather than skinnier, so the gap between sill and roof is about an inch and a half more
the seats are also different, and better, than an elise
very comfortable, I drove back from bendigo only stopping for fuel when I bought it

Hmm - problem with having "better" seats is that you'd feel less inclined to stand on them when getting in :D (roof off on Elise anyhoo)

I just have this one lasting memory of holding an armful of camera gear etc trying to get out of CWL's Elise in front of the breakfast crowd on East Tce with the roof on next to a medium-high gutter...

Picture swinging your legs out the door - and your feet are on the kerb *above* your bum height, you have armsful of gear, and have to basically lick your navel to get your head out from under the roof....

WAS.  NOT.  GRACEFUL. :?

put it this way..... i could get in and out of the car with relative ease.... even the drivers seat, the steering wheel isnt too low. yes it was a bit awkward, but i didnt put a hand on the ground.
and yep... shoulder to shoulder.
