  1. Sorry to hear that @Relic222… it’s a good job that these cars are so great to drive that these issues can be put into proportion… but it’s still annoying!
  2. @Relic222… I hope your lock has started to behave itself again… I’ve just been told by Hendy’s that it’s going to be another 8-10 weeks for mine to arrive… at this rate it will be out of the 12 month warranty by the time the part comes in. flabbergasted!
  3. OMG! If that's really the cause, that is an appalling bit of bad timing. Looking on the bright side, at least they have the parts available...!
  4. Sorry to miss you @DaveC72 - I live just a couple of miles from Axminster! If you are across here again at some stage, let me know as it would be nice to say hello in person!
  5. Thanks @exeterjeep, booked in in a couple of weeks… hopefully they will have the part by then! Don’t suppose you are heading out to the Bearslake Inn tonight? (LDC / club Lotus evening out)
  6. That’s great to hear @Relic222, no news from Hendy’s here on the part for mine but the car is still booked in later in the month.
  7. New pistonheads advert… maybe an LE? 2009 ref but ad. days 2010…. Another with very low mileage. Looks lovely:
  8. Ah! Thanks @Bibs that sort of makes sense... but if it's a part that comes from another manufacturer, why has there been a 2 year wait for availability? Not that it makes any actual difference to the eventual outcome but I would be very interested to know the details behind this saga! Cheers...
  9. Update on the door latch situation.... I had my car booked in for next Monday as my dealer had been expecting the latch to be shipped yesterday. Apparently, the latches have reached Lotus but they 'have to modify them' which apparently they are doing in batches and it will be another 2-3 weeks for mine. I've re-booked for a months time! How can the factory have to re-engineer a new part?? I'd have expected any re-work to remove failure points would have been dealt with when they commissioned the batch... @Bibs (sorry to keep asking on this!) can you find out any more about what's going on... seems very odd to me.
  10. Heading west bound, I was going East in my Evora, thanks for the wave!
  11. Might be a fun drive out if I have the time. Quiet on here... I guess most of the Devon and Cornwall plans are done on the Facebook group...
  12. They are doing a second batch... well I never, they must be flush with cash these days 😉 Excellent news (for when my driver's door one goes too!) Thanks @Bibs
  13. Let us know what Lotus Silverstone say on dates... though I would expect them all to be the same dispatch day at least 😉 Hope your fingers have the chance to recover eventually!
  14. Hi all, Well... that light at the end of the tunnel may be real after all... Hendy's have just confirmed that the factory has said the latches should be dispatched on May 17th to them... Fingers crossed (again!)
  15. Hi @Relic222, thanks for passing on this news! I've not heard anything from Hendy's in Exeter but will be contacting them tomorrow - I hope that the factory ordered enough!
