Cold as feck!
Considering Lotus is a British car maker I cant beleive how bad the Elise is in the cold/wet, not so much the handling (which can be tricky) but if its raining then it leaks like a seive. If its really cold, like the last few days, all manner of things happen. The gear lever had frost on it this morning and I nearly died of hypothermia waiting for it to heat up. I could see my breath in the air inside the car for about a mile! The real pisser is the door locks, mine froze up yesterday and it took a lighter and about half a can of de-icer to get into the car. My little challenge for the day is to find a decent way around this. Central locking would be ideal but "its too heavy". Thanks Lotus.
