    Elise S2 111R
  1. Looking to buy my first Lotus

    Hi I got an elise 111R last September, before buying mine I did the lotus driving academy, scare yourself sensible. It was a great afternoon and the factory tour was really interesting. Plus its amazing to see what the car can do on track. I'm based in Chesterfield on the edge of the peaks. Tomorrow night there is a Lotus club meet at the weatsheaf in Baslow there will be a few lotus there from around 7pm. I might be there depending on work.
  2. Best Car!

    Hi All We entered the Chesterfield MG Group Marcham Road Run with our 111R Elise on Sunday (My parents have a Midget) we enjoyed the 80 mile run. We were very suprised and amused at the end of the day at Ashover show to be presented with an award for the Best Car on the run especially as we wern't driving an MG... The 4 Lady Judges were asked which car on the run they would most like to take home and we got a unanimous 4 votes... Rich

  9. Garage to Service 111R

    Hi All Got the Service and MOT done at PJS yesterday. Excelent service, Only real extra was a change of the Brake and cluch fluid which was off the scale above 4%. I am going to need some new front tyres soon as the old ones are cracked although it passed the MOT, Any recommendations of where and what tyres to fit on the front at the moment it has the origanal Yokohama AD07 LTS tyres fitted, I am only using it on the road, good performance in damp and cold would be good.

  11. damned MOT

    I fixed my fog Lights and made a post here if the light doesn't come on when you press the button its probabally the switch pack relay. The module is over £100 but if your handy with a soldering iron the relay was less tha £5... Richard
