Repair Costs have to be a factor too ?

Can you afford to keep them on the road?

My pennies worth..

insurance??

no-ones mentioned it yet

on both cars it'll be high, but obviously it'll be cheaper on the beemer

Plus Elises' are for women and gays in my opinion

....but they do handle very very well, and have a great power to weight ratio.

Down side is the impracticality of them, the roof is a nightmare, there is no space in them, the sterio was an option (As was carpet I think).

Elise is a bit inpractical if your using it every day frown

VX220. An elise but with better looks IMO

If you can afford a new BM why not go for a "nearly new" merc. A lot more classy and quicker if you get a big engined one

E55 AMG??

If its a 1on1 between the BM and the lotus i say BM

Without a doubt I would buy an Elise. I followed one of these through the twisty foresty roads in Derbyshire and they handle amazingly, don't think they're girly cars at all, if I was looking for that type of car that's what I'd get. smile



But if you're only 19-20, expect insurance well into 4 figures. frown

Well a've go about 7000 all 2gether but if i wait another few months i cud get maybe another 2k, aswell as a've got me carbine blue corsa gsi thats gettin repaired at the mo, also me silver astra sport! so they both will have to be sold.

so the elise isn't far off! ya car pick them up on ebay for 8000+ If am goin get a elise what colour is best, i think the yellow one is nice!

a';ve looked in to insurance and was goin go for a trade policy coz am buyin cars all the time to do up!! i wouldnt be really that bothered about have little space in the elise, i was thinkin about the elise coz its a good track day car!

Don't really like the vx220(the way it looks) and merc's are for old men!!

Get a black one - I'm sure VX220's are in fact Elise's, identical apart from the body. They both put in same times around a track, with the VX averaging .2 seconds quicker. You can even bolt Elise seats straight into a Vauxhall.
Reckon they'll hold their price better as well.
