I am thinking of buying one, about 4 years old. Can anyone ABbers tell me what they think of the model, and any downsides to it?

Many thanks.

one of the best handling cars you can buy for the money. have fun!

The Mark 1 version is very basic - No carpets and the "soft top" don't laugh really is no more than a piece of material with poppers on each corner!

Both are a very direct driving experience, not even power assisted brakes - they are used by quite a few race driving schools.

I guess you'd find them quite tiring after a long drive oh and I think they're insurance group 20

Might be worth looking at the Vauxhal VX220 if you can look beyond the badge as it's essentialy the same vehicle but has better spec and build quality. The turbo version is even quicker than the fastest Elise.
