Carl if I were you I would try Gavin at Unit 4 Vehicle Services at Burton.  He looks after my Elise and is a top bloke plus he charges £50 plus vat per hour, and he works fast 😊

I ought to add he has worked for himself specialising in Lotus for about 9 years and for the 10 years before that he was the mechanic at Peter Smith Sports Cars (now defunct Lotus main agents but you probably knew that)

When I had my Elan Sprint, I took it to a chap called Ike (German I think) at Chatsworth Motor Spares in Chesterfield Tel: 01246 278633.

Be prepared for his brusque nature and very politically incorrect jokes, but he sure can tune carbs. Races his own Lister Jag!

Is Gav old enough to remember Carbs Dean? :)
