Lotus breakers

Anyone one know of any s2 Elise’s getting broken up for parts at the moment.... specifically a rover engined car?

Just needing a couple of small bits.

I’ve tried the usual places on seloc with little success.

Re: Insurance, that time again...

Funny mine went down quite a bit this year with all my new mods declared and agreed valuation, with Henderson Taylor, and Matt was a joy to deal with and seemed to be appreciative of the business.

Re: Long shot - car to Craig at CMC

Long way to go just for an alternator change? I use these guys who are local to you for everything for my s2 including a recent engine rebuild, and is currently in for oil cooler upgrade and sensor instalment. They can pick your car up from your house.

Re: S3 suspension options

Ordered a custom set of Nitrons from Hofmann's in the end. Getting better 46mm bodies only usually available on the [expensive!] 3-way ones, but with just 1-way adjustment like the Club Sport for pretty similar price. 475/650 springs and built with near-normal ride height in mind. That, plus Pilbea...

I did replace the clutch with a new ap one, I added a sump baffle , stronger oil rail, competition head gasket and stronger head bolts w...

Re: What's the views - new car, at least it's a Lotus

I quite like the car advertised, but it’s rich money for the age and mileage of the car regardless of how much money has been thrown at it...... my 111s is almost the way I want it but I love the engine but it’s always needing something fixed or addressed, which comes to a point on how much you want...
