First elise in garage today


Recommended Posts

Hello.

Well after a boxster rcz and z4 ive got what ive wanted for about 20 years in the garage.

A 2004 s2 super charged.

19k miles.

Got a list a mile long what i want already.

First thing the lights in front on top one is nice and clear other not so cant see them for sale on line ? Ive been told to remove front wheel to replace them or you bust the clips.

Second is it normal to have to press the button on fob to start it even if its unlocked ?

Many more to follow🤐

Hiya pete.

Thanks mate.

So it locks the car and opens it.

How come you press again ?

I thought the mirrors folded in to put a cover on.

Ive folded it back but its sort of popped out of kilter but under strong spring tension.do i have to pull it firmly out to get back in.

Due to my advancing age I had a blowout on a 220 Elise from Leven in Edinburgh. Kermit is his name ............ not sure why ;)

Really starting to get into the Lotus driving thing. Very different experience 👍

Looks good under the garage lighting.

Welcome Mark, car looks great, super shiny :thumbup:

Which Elise is it? If it's supercharged then I'm guessing it must be have been upgraded by a previous owner as it's too early for a factory SC and it has no boot spoiler.  Then I'm even further intrigued because looking at the exhaust and the logo on the front clam it looks like a K-series car (111S), which would be a special supercharged setup indeed :)

I see you are Sheffield based, have a look on the Midland Lotus Owners Club site for regular runs in the Peak District (usually start around Baslow or Bakewell) - maybe even one during this Christmas break if you're interested!

Cheers
