Buying help

Postby Roberto » Sun 26.09.2010, 18:20

Hello everyone. I am Roberto, from Italy, and i am searching a good Elan to buy. Here there are not a lot but i have two or three to watch. By the way i need an advise from you as experts of this model. The question is: I received photos about one car i am interested but i saw somwthing that create me some doubts. This car is blue color, very nice, and looks in good conditions but seats and door panels are black with red stripes. Shouldnt be blue? I mean seats and panels color shouldnt be the same of car body?
Thank you very much
Roberto

Welcome
Seat stripe colour is not as body colour.
Mine are grey with yellow stripe and the body is Pacific Blue.
I believe any combination may occur.
Good luck with the search.

the interior has two options...half leather or full leather....
half leather was all the same colour and the door panel insert was in the cloth material
the full leather came in three options.....raven black, raven black with red stripe or raven black with yellow
the later option also allowed for perforated leather...
the S2 variant was generally a perforated leather but with choice of piping to match the body colour if the leather was black....they also came with blue leather or cream leather seats

:)

hope that helps :)
