I think you should buy it Mark, swap all the goodies on to McMustard , We all know you are secretly choking for that side exit exhaust
and those ultra chav 17''s. :burnout:

I asked the guy ages ago and one is apparently a side exhaust, the other is just a dummy for symmetry purposes :shock:

PS McMustard is loaded with goodies ie shortshift, Everest chip, Kuching's rollbars, Jamie's A post rubbers and single wiper mechanism (shameless plug ;-) ) etc... but I have no requirements for a side exit exhaust. Unless of course it is on my own Dax Cobra :burnout:

customising isnt my thing, but I think the effect shows off her curves really well.
The ad does say one side exhaust is functional, so I dont imagine has been driven much since she was made up .

Well, I don't know what you're all bitching about. I like the colour, and the hood cover bumps seem to be from Kuching (albeit without the roll bars they were designed to blend in with). I don't know if I'd buy it at the asking price (and I HATE the LEDs at the front), but I've seen a lot worse for the money.

I think it could actually be made to look quite nice. Do away with the exhausts, put some S2 wheels on it, it would already look better, paint the carbon bits orange as well and I think it would look very smart.

That's all going to cost you money though...... so what's the happy price ?

I've not seen many N/A's (for obvious reasons), but I notice that one is just badged as Elan rather than Elan SE... is the Turbo the SE bit then?

Yes it is.
Although the non UK cars are just labelled Elan as there were no N/A for the export market.

Matter of opinion ,
No power steering on some = real sports car ,
Instant power delivery , higher gear ratio , lighter !

NA = 1.6L on log book.
