Includes brand new full set of adjustable coilovers that have not been installed. It has a straight-piped exhaust (extremely loud and terrifying).
Cosmetics upgrades include:
Elise steering wheel upgrade -Upgraded rear panel taillight assembly -Newer generation aluminum rear diffuser trim -interior carpets supplied by (SJ Sports cars) -New Arial antenna - All four rims were restored professionally, then fitted with brand new tires -Yes, it has the S4S/1996-1997 V8 rear spoiler because that was best looking one they used.
When I bought the car it ran quite well, but had a bunch of small things: leaks, wheels bent slightly, out of alignment, tires were bald, the interior carpet was showing it's age.. hence the work performed. Yes, it has some scratches, scuffs, no check engine light, AC blows plain old air, and some worn spots on the driver's seat.
More photos added. Lots of you have inquired as to the details of the mentioned imperfections. I added a photo of the itty bitty little paint chips you'll find on the front end of the car. These are too hard to see when standing in front of the car and consequently impossible to detect in normal profile photos. So I added a couple of super close-ups. Also a small paint chip on the door (see photo). Also, the worn spots you'll find on the center armrest and drivers seat (see photo).. I figured a photo of the check engine light not illuminating prior to (or after) start-up, will put to rest any confusion surriunding the phrase, "no check engine light."
I have three steering wheels for this car. All three are to be included in the sale. There's a photo of the elise wheel upgrade, and photo of the Raid steering wheel which i just pickrd uo and installed.
Reserve is 32,000 Please reach out to me if you have specific questions or require further photo's etc..
