Garage Space for Elise

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey all, I've got a fairly small garage, 5.8m long, but only 2.75m wide.

Would this be wide enough to park an S3 Elise and be able to get in and out of with the hardtop on?

Easily.  I reckon width wise you only need 240cm.  Mine is 250cm. And I do fine.  Length is also not a problem.

Yes, comfortably, my old single garage was 2.4m wide and was OK for this 👍🏻

Thanks guys, good to hear. I was worried I wouldn't be able to open the door wide enough to get out without smashing the crap out of the door on the wall haha

Carpet a bit of the wall.  You’ll need at least 80% wool and a decent underlay.  🤪

Seems like overkill. Of course it depends how ham-fisted you are, maybe how large around the waist.  I do fine in a garage smaller than yours, just a bit of thin padding on the wall to stop scratches if I do open the door that wide, gently.  Roof on or off, no problem, with practice.  If you're going to smash the door into the wall, then thick carpet or the dedicated foam.  I do park up tight on the passenger side, unless I want to work on that side of the car.  Any passengers are well advised to get out before the car goes in the garage.

What about getting a Lotus badged foam kneeler from the Club Lotus shop? It has a hole/slit near the top that you could use to hang it on the wall and remove it to save your knees when needed. I've tried to send a link but the page isn't coming up.
