Hi from the North East

Recommended Posts

Hello all, Lotus Elise 111S owner just joined from the North East - after many years with a Lancia Integrale I thought it was time to go back to basics n have some fun with an Elise :)

Welcome to LDC Karl.

Very nice looking Elise you have. 

Do you still have the Lancia aswell?

Thank you and no, I sold the Lancia - basically doubled my money over 14 years of ownership - broke my heart to let it go, but needs must. Had an Excel SE in the past n have always loved the Elise - saw this and snapped his hand off. The last owner had it for 11 years but hardly used it  - Just put a Larini on it and its off to have its C Service on Tuesday.

Not all cars suit that colour but an Elise def does!

Welcome to LDC Karl  and good luck with the service (and if you are having it done at Performance Autocare let us know what you think as I wasn't able to find out much (any) info about them, although do appear to be Lotus specialists (if not exclusive to the marque))

Cheers guys - I'll let you know how the service goes - they seem very knowledgeable over the phone and reasonable at £500 with belts etc. but I'll give feedback after the event. I also have a heater fan resistor issue which i think I'll leave to Hangar 111.

Welcome from me too Karl. Smashing looking car & I look forward to seeing it in the metal at one of our many events during 2018.

All the best

I don't think you will regret it though, you will always have a smile on your face when you drive your Elise. Enjoy!
