Ohhhh hello, that's one of the first cars I was toying with on my search for a Lotus a while back...
If you don't mind us asking, did you get it for a decent bargain?
Keep it to yourself if you like, but depending on the answer, you may not wish to read further...
Asking $60k now... (was $40k) Dafuq?
This Elise is tickling my gonads:
Already spoke to one on the phone, he had zero info to give me, just said "it either hasn't been tracked or at least not professionally" - whatever that means. Not that I really care - I'm not a fastidious guy, I'd rather something was used well than pampered.
...for some reason as soon as I saw the pictures, I thought of those ex racers that were for sales a few years ago
Edit: Both have the same "watermark" across the dash...
Just looked at the yellow one. Roll cage has been hacked up. Comes with an extra motor and gearbox. Def been tracked who would bother with a motor if they do lap sometimes? Not in great condition. Rubbers missing.
Has east coast suspension stickers on it. They use to be across the road for me so you might be able to speak to Dave and see what he says about it.
Found the guy who owned it on Aussie Elises: http://aussieelises.com/index.php?/topic/3193-for-sale-2004-elise/
