  1. Not Another Suspension Query?

    Be careful, I think it's only the fronts that are available! My actual bilstein dampers are fine, but the collars that the spring is mounted on are showing corrosion. Luckily, these are sold separately! Unluckily, I can not find anywhere that currently has or can get hold of them! Anyone on here know where I can get these?
  2. I know, I know... hoping to use it more this year...
  3. I agree with all that has been said about Jon, great bloke. I took my 111R to Jon for a Service and then later, an MOT, which required a steering rack recon. He held onto the car for a few days and managed to fit in with my awkward dates so I could have the MOT done a full month before due (so qualifying for a year and a month until next MOT). Unfortunately, I don't drive it very often... but got the chance to take it to a wedding over the weekend! I can report that it drives just as an Elise should, lovely. I recommend Jon and he is now my go-to-guy for anything related to the car... someone I hadn't found in my 6-7 years of ownership! Baz
  4. Vehicle Recalls

    Check whether a car has had a manufacturer recall by visiting the following links: VOSA - A general make and model lookup database. (TBD lookup on the lotus uk website)
  5. Vehicle Tax

    As of the 13 March 2008, the vehicle tax is now based on fuel type and CO2 emissions for cars registered after 1 March 2001. A list of the bands can be found on the Government website Directgov Cars registered prior to 1 March 2001 are taxed based on their engine size, which is easy to find out. However, if your car is registered after 1 March 2001, the following links can be used to find out your cars' CO2 emissions and which band it resides: Car fuel data- A general make and model lookup database . Vehicle Enquiry page on the DVLAs Vehicle Licensing website - Specific car lookup.
  6. Footwell Diagnostic Connector

    Noticed this connector in the passenger footwell? (This being a 2004 111R) It's actually a diagnostic connector, so don't worry, it's not a connection that has come loose! A device, such as an ODBKey, can be attached and used to monitor vehicle information from the ECU.
