  1. Agreed. There is no escaping his ability. He would be a much more plausible role model if he was more personable and able to discuss more mundane topics with a degree of humour. The points he is vocal on are quite polarised and because of his lifestyle/sponsorship leaves him open to easy challenge which he doesn't appear to recognise.
  2. That's great news and Hamilton is much more central than previous mentioned locations. Still have my recall work to get done so will book in shortly. On a another update David Hayton are moving their Lotus servicing away from Carlisle to Penrith. Received an Email this morning.
  3. Lack of communication and support for customers requiring dealer support and warranty for their vehicles Lotus simply didn't provide it.
  4. I can confirm I got my service plan payments (3 off) from the receivers.
  5. Glad to hear you got thing's resolved and stuck to getting a positive outcome.
  6. Thanks Twin Rotor. The drive from Berwick to Penrith provides some Epic driving opportunities both ways so hence I was leaning that way. But I will use Park's if it doesn't come off.
  7. Update from Hayton Carlisle is that warranty work will still not be available for Lotus for some time. They are trying to book me in for the fuel rack recall on the S3 Elise at their Penrith branch (Toyota I am guessing). Sounds likely that they don't have a trained tech or facility operating post Covid.
  8. Further reply Thank you for the email, we are sorry you feel it’s necessary to contact again on this topic. Unfortunately the demise of Leven Lotus and then Covid-19 restrictions along with lockdown has left a lot of our customers in an unfortunate position with Recalls, Warranty repairs and general servicing and maintenance at our Dealers. Rest assured we are doing everything we can behind the scenes to assist our Dealers with reopening, whilst talks are progressing forward with Parks Motor Group. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the proposed location for the Parks Motor Group Lotus Dealer, as this is still in discussion with the Network Development Team. Yet we thank you for taking for taking an interest in our business model and our proposed Dealer locations. Once Parks Motor Group are fully operational, our customers in Scotland will be able to use the Dealer for their Lotus Servicing and Warranty requirements. Until such time this happens, the nearest Dealer is currently David Hayton in Carlisle. I have contacted the operational manager at David Hayton and I can confirm they planning to safely reopen their operation with a Lotus Technician scheduled on a rota to assist Lotus customers with their needs, although the date is to be confirmed. In the meantime should you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us by return.
  9. Finally got a reply frim Callum Smith at customer services....... Looks like they are really getting their teeth into it . "Thank you for the 2 emails, we are currently looking into your claims and we will respond accordingly" Any one have Phil Popham's Email address?
  10. I have sent a letter of disgust to Lotus customer services enquiring about both Carlisle and Ayr dealerships
  11. In total agreement. What is the business model for that an why did Lotus say that would be a great location for selling the brand. Words fail me
  12. Parks service centre appear open byt no sign of Lotus on their Franchises. Hayton in Carlise have never contacted me regarding the warranty work that was booked in April so they are running true to form
  13. Just saw that too. Magic voice ......... sad loss
  14. Or join a queue? I agree lets not panic but that 'boat' sailed a few days ago. I am afraid the sh*t has hit the fan. The effects on everyone's lives family and friends will be life changing
  15. Unfortunately I was correct .................... world changing event ................. all trans American flights binned all Europe flights binned. Stock up and keep your vehicles brimmed with fuel. ........... fill your bath with water (clean it first)
