Lotus Elan S2

My brother has had a Lotus Elan S2 and loves it to pieces but it is now 7 years old and is beginning to cost too much to keep it on the road. Any ideas on what car he should get next with a budget of about �15k? He is quite tempted to try the Peugeot 106 GTI or the Renault Clio Sport 172 but neither of them are a Lotus and that would be a bit of a come down for him. Any suggestions more than welcome.

�15k will get him a used Elise.A Puma is cheap to run and handles okay.If he wants new I think on the handling front the new Mini Cooper S would be hard to beat.Ian [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image]ps. Had a Pug 106GTi, great fun but they go wrong! Anyway, the 106 Rallye was purer.

KieronI know where there is a nice Titanium S1 with black leather, s/exhaust and mini disk for about �15000. Its done 23000 and its 98 Rand its from a Lotus dealer.
