I bought this from a serviceman for about $13,500 two years ago (May 09) It was top dollar, but he was in the medical field, and was headed back to Afghanistan and owed that much because he added/ financed the clear-bra(s) and an extended warranty. At the time she had just over 10K miles. I paid off his note at his bank. I have never regretted the purchase, nor the price.

Upon purchase I gutted the cats at about 11K miles (they were pristine) and always used synthetic oil. I started with Mobil 1 synthetic, but I soon switched to German Castrol 0w30 after researching this on spyderchat.com and have done Blackstone oil analysis. Last change at 35,391 miles, Blackstone Oil Analysis indicates good for 7K miles.

Last spring I had my mechanic change the fluids throughout: MT90 tranny fluid (4/11/11) and Coolant flush w/ new Toyota “Red” coolant (5/3/2011) This car has had no mechanical issues, is amazingly reliable and so clean you could eat off of any part of my motor.


In October of 2009 the car was hit (scraped) while in my parking garage. Driver’s side front bumper, scratch on door, fender. It does not show up in carfax report, (Picture attached,) and a write up was done in spyderchat at that time because we found the person who did it! I have all documents involving the minor repairs and paint. Most damage was to bumper… I had the clear bra replaced, which worked well because they cut it to fit the Screaming Chicken Badge. High-end body shop, all records, receipts and insurance details maintained.




The Silver/ Red combo is rare, and my favorite personal stories involve Toyota salespeople who don’t know what it is and are dumfounded to learn it is not brand new from an exotic dealer lot.

I’m a 43 year old professional... this car has been treasured, garaged its entire life and in no way abused. I simply love this car …. So why sell? One word…. LOTUS. I have wanted one since childhood; have the means now; what the heck. I have selected photos to show the excellent condition (Top, headlights, paint, and interior) I do not intend to include the Luggage, unless someone really makes a compelling argument as they were gifts and will look fine in a Saffron Yellow Elise. I am advertising on spyderchat before anywhere else because it is important for me to have her go to a home where her qualities and condition will be appreciated. This car has been good to me, and I feel responsible to see her into a good home.

No, keeping the luggage and her. <_< Oh, and I meant to point out that there were NO KEYS IN THE CAR IGNITION as she sat in the driver's seat..... don't want to adversly impact the value.

Lotus... yep, that's what happens when your brother buys a Ferrari:)... The car looks really clean--best of luck with your sale and finding a clean Lotus.

Somebody needs to scoop this thing up, it apparently makes women's shirts fly off...

It's mine! Woohoo!

My wife and I flew to Denver, were picked up by Scott and his girlfriend slash Famous MR2 Photo Model and went to his place. What I found there was the nicest 10 year old car (let alone MR2) I have ever seen. Scott took outstanding care of his MR2 and it shows. We went for a test drive on perhaps the most beautiful curvy road on earth. I gave Scott what I consider the best money I've ever spent, and we drove it home. Stops included the top of Pikes Peak (at 14,110 feet and 9 degrees F), overnight stays at Colorado Springs and Amarillo before arriving in Fort Worth yesterday.

Scott and his girlfriend were super nice, and I could not be happier with the entire experience.

Now that I am official MR2 owner, I will be frequenting this place often.

Nice. Now you have to post more pictures of the car (blond) and particularly the red interior (blond) as well as any mods that you may make (blond) though it doesn't look like it needs any alterations (blond). Best of luck with the car and I hope Scott sells another car soon so I can go out and look at it (blond).

Welcome to Spyderchat! Nice story, sounds like a fun trip--it sure as hell beats the stories of sitting in a car salesman's office somewhere... I found it really helpful to read all the stickies, and the stuff in the library, when I joined. Best of luck, sounds like that car has a lot of andventures left in it!
