Anyone want to take me for a ride?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I want to buy an S3 Elise, but I can't get a test drive. None of the dealers have demonstrators at the moment.

I hired one for the day, but it was badly set up and a terrible experience.

Would anyone be happy to take me for a spin (on road) for an hour in their car (I'm not asking to drive it!)? Happy to pay.

I'm based in Exeter, and happy to travel up to about 90 mins (so Bristol, Salisbury, Dorchester etc.) 

Sport 220 (ideally) or Cup 250.

Thanks, Chris.

I hope this goes well, but I'm intrigued.  What opportunity is there for an S3 Elise to be "badly set up"?  What adjustments can be made?  My experience is limited to S1 Elise, but that was what it was like it or lump it (short of replacing stuff with aftermarket bits).

It did - thank you Jim!

The answer is, I know know that in the car I rented (at great expense)

a) The shocks were gone

b)The geo was out on 3 of the 4 wheels

Wow, that must have taken a pasting in its short life - always a possibility with hire cars I suppose.  Possibly undisclosed incidents by the hirers when they ran out of talent, but very poor of the hire company to not notice/fix.
