Must admit, never heard of them. It’s a bit further, but I’d be driving down the a38 to see Gav at Unit4 in Burton.

freezing cold workshop, no tea or coffee. Lotus Elan and mx5 in both corners (evening Colin). But he is top notch is our Gav.

Gav doesn't own a kettle. He thinks if he gets one the nice girl from next door won't bring him coffees.  Apart from that he is a top top bloke and knows Elises inside out and is very reasonably priced.  I have taken my Elise there for the last six years which says it all really - and he must be 40 miles from me.

I have never heard of the place in Mansfield which is odd as i live next door to there and keep my ear to the ground for all things Lotus.  They may be really good, who knows?

I still think you can’t beat recommendation is the best way to go

I’m in Chesterfield and I’ve used Gav at Unit 4 and Jon at Legacy Storm in Leicester. I would recommend them both. Never heard of Stones but looks interesting. I reckon they are slightly more expensive, definitely more expensive than Jon as he doesn’t charge VAT but a lot more convenient being pretty close to home.

Yeah that's Gav.

PJS are very good too.

Gav will look after you. Very fair pricing and what he doesn’t know about Elise’s ain’t worth knowing. I can highly recommend him.

GAV will sort you out very honest and has built a business on recommendation not advertising

Gav, PJS and Central are all recommended on here. Personally I have used both Gav for my old S1 Elise and more recently PJS who now look after my Evora and I would highly recommend both, Gav as an independent and PJS if you want a dealer stamp...the choice is yours :)

For Evora service etc would be be best recommended Unit 4  , PJS or Central ?

i had central sort my handbrake under warranty they did a good job but then I wasn’t paying and it was a simple adjustment.

does unit 4 or PJS be more cost effective when it comes to MOT & service than Central ?

      Hi MLOC,

      I’d like to introduce our business "Car Service Packs"- I’ve spoken with Simon (Sim@n) and he has given me the OK to post here.

      Car Service Packs offer great oil, filter and spark plug service kits to cars that are commonly found on track days, sprint and hillclimb venues and race tracks.

      The team at Car Service Packs all have cars that we regularly race, track and compete at sprint and hillclimbs so we know how important oil and regular servicing is to maintain the reliability and performance of your engine. After a lot of research and testing we have selected some of the best engine oils available to help protect your engine against the harsh environment of being on track.

      We personally use all of the oils that we sell ,and where possible, we use OEM filters and plugs to help you keep your engine in the best possible condition.

      I will put a few of the service packs that we offer for the Lotus Elise / Exige on the classifieds section and if you’d like to purchase anything, please get in contact via the forum or email us at shop@carservicepacks.co.uk. We have discounted the prices especially for MLOC members.

      We are currently working on service packs for Honda, Audi and Duratec converted cars - please get in touch if you need any information on these.

      Many thanks

      Hi everyone!
       
      Back up in Leics in the week and looking to get the Elise MoT'd, but wondering where the best place to get it done in the Leic / Hinckley area is now?
       
      Cheers!
