    Re: Lotus Elise

    I didn't think you could get a Lotus up here? I know they sell in the US, but doesn't the 15yr rule apply to importing them?

    I would love to get one as a dedicated track car, almost no upgrades required.

          for 58k cdn + tax and 3 months wait. Funny thing was that the base price was 54k. After the toronto star did the article on the elise about an older woman in kingston who bought a british racing green elise the price went up by 4K when jim kenzie did another article on it with a yellow version that was featured.

            I wonder how much potential savings there is going south of the border to try and pick one up? ... although when I say 'I wonder' it's along the same vein as "I wonder what it would be like to win the lottery ..."

            does availbility of the elise mean they automatically have access to exiges too?

              Lotus Exige is not available in Canada this year, only the Elise.
              But it is expected that the Exige will be able in Canada next year.

                or any of that other BS. I only race rotary powered cars. Unless it's the elise.
                That's most unfortunate... since you've just eliminated 99% of the world's most interesting cars. Not to mention the torque that can only be achieved by combustion acting directly on a piston.

                  And choosing a Mustang GT will mean you loose GT2 to a truck-engine powered Honda Civic

                    Won't a 2.4L Nissan motor either pop a gasket or ruin your weight distribution?
