Oh dear ... who by? Elise owners? I found it similar when coming to tyre choices excluding the Michelins but this just depended on owners views, no real trend. Maybe see how you get on and then see if we can look into the perfect choice, if there is one.

I wouldn't use Mobil 1 - there are far better fully synthetic oils out there. Currently Motul 300V 15W50 is the best option, but in April 2010 the new Motul Sport 5W50 (produced for the UK market) would be a good alternative if you are doing road and track, especially in the winter months.
