Bought Lotus Elise--reminds me of D-90

Yes really,

Both:

Come in "interesting" colors
Have a metal tray instead of a glove box (lotus is very similar to Series II rovers)
Seat two uncomfortably
Loud inside
Radios suck
Are birtish and do weird things for no apparent reason
The interiors on both are a joke
Leak water into the cabin
Hard to get in/out

That all being said, the thing is GREAT! Fast does not begin to describe it. It got low 30s in MPG on the drive up from south florida.

Anyone else have one?

Ron

Sure, JimC is coming in June. Always welcome D-90.com people and I have plenty of extra space for guests.
