This Elise was purchased from Motorcars of GA- Lotus of Atlanta. This was a pre-owned 2005 model that was equipped with both the sport and touring packages. The owner had recently traded it in for 1 of the 50 2006 Sport Elise models. He had been nice enough to replace the factory sport suspension with the Ohlins track setup, had installed the OEM driving lights and switch panel, had installed the Multivex Mirrors, had Stage 2 exhaust installed, painted the engine covers red, removed the LOTUS letters on the rear and replaced with rear LOTUS emblem, installed stainless steel brake lines, replaced the brake pads with Porterfields, and replaced the OEM air filter with a K&N. He has also worked out most of the rattles and issues that these cars have. The Yokohama A048 tires had been replaced recently and as it turned out, this was one of the Sport models where the Exige black wheels had been substituted when the LSS wheels were on backorder at one point during production of the 2005 model. This Elise comes from Lotus with Lotus AP brakes up front, Brembo units at the rear, and cross drilled rotors front and rear.
Most recently I have upgraded the stereo, police protection, and wheels......check out all of my mods here: 2005 Lotus Elise
