  1. Hey LEGS! This is loooong overdue...and I wanted to get together with so many of you prior to moving to Canterbury, but alas, it was probably one of the busiest, albeit most exciting times in our lives. As many of you know, Lauren and I moved from California in 2008 to pursue warmer climates in Edinburgh for post-grad degrees. What can I say, it became home. For nearly that entire time, I was a part of the Murray Motor Co. family. When Graeme decided to progress in his career, I was offered the Lotus job and transferred from another site. MMC was very good to me and I thoroughly enjoyed working alongside so many great people. I'm indebted to everything they taught me and for how they enabled me to progress in my career to the general sales manager role for Lotus, Volvo and Suzuki for the latter part of my tenure. The Lotus brand and its drivers (that's ya'll by the way!) have also been so good to me. I'm really thankful that I was able to get to know so many great people through this shared passion. I am also grateful for having the opportunity to be of assistance with some of your buying experiences (and for some, more than once!). To share in the joy of watching you drive some fantastic cars away from the showroom made me truly happy! And I am overwhelmed when I reflect on all the great chats we shared in the showroom while your cars were worked on, in addition to all the various Lotus gatherings, drives, and events. Towards the end of last summer, Lauren was offered a permanent lecturing position at the University of Kent, so I started to have some conversations since we were looking to relocate. I found a good fit with Santander Consumer UK on their Volvo Car Finance team supporting the London and Kent region. Needless to say, my background and experience has been a real strength in this role and I'm enjoying it very much now that I'm a few months in. Anyway, now that I'm in Kent, I'm not too far from Bibs (we still need to get that pint btw)! And whenever there is a track day or meet down this neck of the woods, I'd live to know about it so reach out on Facebook and let me know. Though I will also try and check in here every now and again. All the best to you! Brandon

  3. Has anyone been able to source a central door locking module for model year 2006 Elise / Vauxhall range or can someone point me in the direction of one? They are on back order from Lotus with no ETA. Many thanks!

  7. On behalf of the Murray Lotus Team, thank you to LEGS , ScottishElises and everyone who came out this morning. My apologies if my chat after breakfast was a bit brief/rushed. We genuinely would like to thank you for the opportunity to look after you to the best of our ability. We have a shared enthusiasm for the Lotus brand and the cars they build, and I can't tell you enough how excited I am about what the future holds. With undoubtedly one of the the best Lotus after-sales teams in the world including Craig Moncrieff at the helm, our company's investments into showroom and workshop facilities later this year will enable us to do even more. And with that, I leave you with the group photo from this morning and maybe see some of you at the Geneva Motor Show!

  9. An update from PH's article:
  10. Thanks for the feedback everyone. Due to the short notice and the inability to do weekend in October, we may try this for next year.
  11. Good evening everyone, for those of you who don't regularly check the LEGS portion, I've included a link to an event idea Murray Lotus is proposing. Have a look and let me know what you think! http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/68247-event-idea-murray-lotus-army-shoot-day/ Best, Brandon
  12. Good evening everyone, Murray Lotus has an event idea to propose. Before we pursue booking anything, I would like to gauge how much interest there is. So if anyone is interested can you please list your names? The date we are proposing is for mid to late October. Here are the details: Murray have been involved with Craigiehall, Scotland Army Headquarters for a number of years running various charity events and raising money for SSAFA Borders, Army Benevolent Fund and Combat Stress. In total just short of £18,000 has been raised through the generosity of our suppliers and customers. Traditionally a very exclusive site, Craigiehall would like to open its doors as a one-off to the Lotus Drivers to join them for a special day and raise further funds. This is a working camp that is not open to the public however they would like to offer the opportunity for a limited number of Lotus Drivers to experience their Hospitality and also a chance to compete in a Clay Pigeon Shoot on their range. The day would be set out as below and would cost circa £70 for the full day: Arrival 10am-10.30am Coffee and bacon rolls/Picture in front of the main house with the cars 11am Safety brief 11.15am Shoot commences 2pm Lunch in the officers mess with Prize giving, tour of house 3-3.30pm Depart
  13. Hi Jason, believe you spoke with my staff here at Murray Lotus while I was away from the showroom that day. Looked for a phone number to give you a call but I don't think it was left. Happy to send some details over to you and arrange a factory visit to Motorsport for you if you'd like. Best, Brandon
