Hi all,

I have purchased my first Lotus Elise and will be picking it up this Thursday - CAN'T BLOODY WAIT!!!!

first thing i want to do is get it serviced and have it looked over by someone that knows these things. So my question to you lovely Lotus people is where do I go and what can i be expecting to pay.

I know the 3 closest to me are:

  1. Paul Matty
  2. UK Lotus Centre

  3. Top Gear Automotive

anyone used any of the above and can recommend them

thanks in advance 

Neil

Hi Neil,

Welcome to the club. Everyone else must be out enjoying the sunshine... my car is currently being serviced so I am in waiting mode!

I used Paul Marty years ago when Paul was still there, so I can’t vouch for it since new ownership. I’m sure others will get back to you soon enough with other suggestions or info.

Have you considered having it looked over before you sign over the ££ if it hasn’t been checked or serviced recently?

Hello

Paul Matty or Dan HPE.  North Bham, I'm in Sutton so Gav Unit 4 Burton.  All good though. 

UK Lotus Centre is a breaker only.

yeah thought about it - it has full service history and 36k on the clock - had the belts changed 2k ago and has 2 service books.

where are you getting yours serviced?
