New Elise owner in Bristol, UK


Recommended Posts

Hello  :welcome:
 
Firstly - Happy Christmas! Hope it was warm and cosy one for all  :santa:
 
I've just pulled the trigger on my first Lotus - an '07 S Touring in Norfolk Mustard. At least, I think that's the colour?? Previous cars were an '04 RX8 and '05 Smart Roadster Coupe.
 
The Elise is everything I want in a car... and then some. The best word I can use to describe the driving experience so far is 'connected'. The whole car gives you so much feedback! The gearbox is refreshingly tactile, the driving position is perfect and there's just the right amount of technology - a radio and heater  :yes:. The cabin noises - the creaks from the dash and the whistle of wind when you hit 60 - they just add to the experience and the car's character.
 
I'm in love.
 
Anyway, really looking forward to browsing the forums and hope everyone has a fab 2014!
 
T

Hi Thom and welcome

Saw an identified Elise going over the Avonmouth bridge late morning Boxing Day - you by chance?

Lovely car. Enjoy.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Hi Thom

 

Welcome to the Forum. The Elise is such a great car but you know that already. I hope you have many miles of enjoyable driving. If ever you get the chance and want to make it a bit quicker I would recommend a course at the Lotus driving academy. Those chaps can teach you to drive your car faster with no modifications to your car!

 

Any ways we love pics here and feel free to get involved with conversations or ask questions.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
