This is one amazing car, IF you buy it for the right reasons and have the right expectatinos. It is small, low, light, and sparse...but those are intentional design decisions and the key feature of this car. If you don't understand why less is more would be a desirable feature, this car is probably wrong for you.
Getting in and out of the car is not like jumping in or out of a large sedan, it is low and very tightly engineered, but the tucked in feel is something I love. If you are overweight or obese, this will be a limitation of this car for you; I am 6 ft+ at 160 lbs. The seats have thinner padding than most, which I do not find uncomfortable, but you might. This opinion of comfort is based on 2 road trips of about 700 miles each.
Buy this car if you want a very intimate driving experience with the road, are not looking for the ride and feal of a luxury car in your sports car, and love what lotus stands for and their unique car philosopy.
Don't buy this car expecting it to be a big horse power luxury sports car (meaning heavy)...it simply isn't...and you will end up in the same boat as many other reviewers here -- disappointed with a car that is what it is despite some people's wishes for it to be something else entirely.
If you are interested in the car, and want to learn more, visit LotusTalk.com or BritishSpeed.com, and leard more first...Don't be one to jump blindly then complain because it is not like other cars...you should know this going in...
No one should feel bad or be insulted if this car is not for you, it is not for most, and that's ok. I certainly don't care that some people have told me how uncomfortable, loud, bumpy, etc, etc, etc this car is to them...you buy a car for you, not for them.
BUT...that is exactly why I love this car more than any I have ever owned, even ones 2-3x more expensive...because it is not like any other car...but for the right person it is simply amazing.
