    I wonder if there are any good after-market adjustable suspensions out there which will fit the Roadster.

    This might be an option for all non-sports buyers who don't want to spend the extra $$$ on the OEM adjustable suspension from Tesla.

    Prices for suspension kit including adjustable shocks (fitting Elise MKII) range from 1000$ up:

    GAZ GGA SUSPENSION KITS - GGA Adjustable Kit - LOTUS Elise Mk 2 2001 to 2006 :: £599.96 :: Performance Suspension Kits :: LOTUS - ELISE ::

    Nitron Doubles, Adjustable Suspension for the Lotus Elise and Exige

    Any experiences out there?

    I'd check the Lotus forums. The one caveat is that the Roadster has a lot of extra weight back there.

    But also, I don't think there's anything particularly special about the upgrade offered by Tesla. You could get those same components from another vendor. Might be worth making a price comparison.

    I dont think the elise has a rear anti roll bar so it might be a bit more complicated ?

    Does TM offer the suspension for "aftermarket Teslas"? That would eliminate the search for aftermarket unless you want to got hardcore ;)
