  1. Managed to try out an Elise today and happy to say that I fit, not v graceful on entry and exit but to be expected hah! 

    I'm looking to go see the Honda engine Elise next week, but I'm looking to take a independent specialist Lotus mechanic to make sure everything is in order. I'm based in West London so does anyone know someone that they would recommend in west London / Buckinghamshire.

  2. Hey Bibs, thanks for your reply, I'm looking at the Elise S2 and the modified one was just on sale atm.

    I will look at getting a test drive to see if I can fit into one!

    I hope you can insure a modified Elise at your youthful age.

    Honda engine is heavier than the brilliant K-series, as was the later factory Toyota unit, which rather changes the characteristics of Elise. 

    You should try a K-series as nature intended, you may be surprised.



    I should be fine with insurance, have been insured on bigger powered cars before. I will try the original K series for a test drive! Looking forward to it :)

  3. Hey guys, I'm thinking about buying an old a Elise S2 from 2001 (convertible). I'm wondering if I would fit in it being my height. Any tall guys had any problems in it? I know bit tricky to get in and out of, but I don't mind that. I'm 23 years old.

    I'm also thinking about getting a Honda engine Elise to bring up the BHP significantly. Let me know if you have any experience with any of these as well.

    Cheers guys!
