~CJ~ Elan S2 Limited Edition 481

Postby CJ101KT » Wed 23.01.2008, 12:38

Here are the first pictures ive taken of my Elan S2 since I bought her two weeks ago from Paul Matty. I am nothing but amazed by its style,quality and performance after only a few weeks. I feel so proud to be 21 and a proud owner of an Elan. Enjoy my pictures!

Looking very nice indeed :smt023


The only thing i would say is to remove the Lotus badges on the A panel near the wings, but thats just MHO

How come? Are these not standard to the S2 or is it just a not like thing lol. I also got some clear side indicators to go on now.

I agree with Monty on both of his comments.

Just wish my "to do" list was as small :roll:

Yea I know. My first car was a Proton Compact 1.3 and then I moved onto the Lotus Engineered Proton Satria GTI. Ive always loved to have a car that was unique and everything the Elan is and Saxos arn't lol.

Yea I will certainly be there at Donington ... im well excited at the prospect of so many Elans there. Bring it on guys and gals lol

I had my first at the age of 21 - enjoy it. I thrashed the hell out of mine but never had an accident and only got pulled once.

When I look back at this LUCK was all I account that for. Enjoy but please be careful

From one CJ to another.... Nice car!!! and it's only 6 after mine :)

I'm not a fan of the extra Lotus badges though :shock: At least it would make it easy to find in a car park full of red ones if you go to Donington :wink:

I wonder what color the next one will be?

Looking clean CJ. Especially the soft fuzzy stuff in side the window and new looking window trims. :smt023
