I'm in the market for another car, been looking mainly at used BMW M Coupes and Audi TT Quattros. Had a few minutes to spare yesterday so I stopped by the local Chevy dealer, Criswell, who also happens to be a Lamborghini and Lotus dealer. With the new Exige coming out soon I figured I might as well (finally) check out an Elise. I'll preface this by saying that I'm a pretty big guy (6'2", ~260 lb.) and my daily driver is a 99 Miata. I opened the door to the Elise and knew I finally found a car I can't fit in. The car had the highest sills I've seen this side of a full racecar. After putting one size 13 foot in the cockpit, folding myself in half and contorting my left leg in an almost unimaginable way I actually got into the car (this particular car had the hardtop). The first thing I noticed was that my foot covered the clutch, brake and accelerator simultaneously. That would make driving a tad tricky. The next thing I noticed was that my right should was near the middle of the passenger seatback. Guess I'd have to drive alone. Then came the fun part.... getting out of the car, which was much harder to do gracefully than getting in. I'm guessing the car was made for someone about six inches shorter and 100 lb. lighter. Oh well... looks like a great car on paper.
