    Anyone know if the soft top is universal with the Elise? Looking to buy one.

    It is apparently compatible. Lotus Garage has the parts available. British Racing Group has as well. I inquired about the hard tops (they have several options avalilable that are compatible with the Roadster. The Elise soft top should fit - search this forum for 'soft top elise' and you'll find references.

    It is exactly the same as the Lotus "touring" soft top with the padded insulation on the underside. The base Lotus top had no padding, but will fit.

    I bought a new soft top from Tesla a few months ago after looking at Lotus Garage and others. As I recall, Tesla's price was just slightly under the others, and the part was in stock. Just about $1K.
