    • Hi there, No I didn’t go for it, decided to stick with the one I’ve got which is original to the car. It’s not a concours standard car and retains its original crash pad, centre console and steering wheel, so I’m thinking a mint badge may look a little out of place....nice to have a little patina! I tend to agree with you that there the real deal.  Still available...... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lotus-steering-wheel-horn-push-badge-Elan-Plus-2-Seven-7-Europa-Cortina-Elite/302738679253?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D50546%26meid%3Dd3cd21a1699148e4b47ec881287a76a1%26pid%3D100623%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D302738681271%26itm%3D302738679253&_trksid=p2047675.c100623.m-1 Andy.
    • Seems real to me. Did you end up purchasing it? I can see it went for £115...
    • Hi PETE now that’s a good one best person that might be helpful would Be Matt .
    • Later ones don't - annoying isn't it!
    • My RHD 2007 Elise 'S' doesn't have the little footrest for the driver's left foot on the central tunnel like my previous S1 did.  Is that normal, or has it fallen off? Thanks.
