I encourage all seriously interested parties to come and see/drive my car in person, there aren't many examples like it left. This car is in amazing condition and runs (and sounds) great. I am the 4th owner, only one of the previous owners ever raced it, although the one before me changed a few things because he'd planned to (see below). The one time it was raced it was one weekend of Autocross, and he used painters tape around the car to prevent any damage. I've had it a little over a year and have only put a little over a thousand miles on it. I baby it and only take it out with the kids to get ice cream or to give it a good run on the highway. It's always been garaged and extremely well taken care of. I'm selling it because I'm considering leaving the corporate world to buy my own business so, unfortunately, I need the cash more than a sports car right now.2005 Lotus Elise

-ITG air filter, along with a velocity stack added to airbox(Fantastic noise!)
-Transmission fluid flushed with Redline synthetic
-Changed the oil twice using Rotella T6, basically flushed it due to the next item
-Car had a very slight oil leak that I first found to be the fitting for oil pressure, turned out to be the oil pan wasn't properly sealed. I removed the pan, cleaned it extremely well, and resealed it. I even cleaned all the bolts to remove old thread lock. Perfect now!
-Removed exhaust system and heatshield. I ceramic coated the midsection after removing the small amount of surface corrosion, it was then wrapped with Morimoto heat-wrap. I also fully polished the Quicksilver exhaust which looks much better now that the rear panel is deleted.
-Checked torque specs on all suspension components according to Sector111 Inspection chart, a few things were under and remedied.
-Installed Difflow Railer Jr. 5 element diffuser with BWR rear panel delete
-Oil lines and Radiator have been closely inspected when the clam was off, they are all in great shape with zero signs of leaking or fatigue.
-Fitted Quantum Zero Coilovers and adjusted ride height to 124mm front/129mm rear. Jeff the Alignment Guy then worked his magic.
