Soft roof stays

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 2015 Elise S and I have found both the fibreglass roof stays to be broken. The hooked ends one at the front end and the other at the rear is broken off. Is this a common fault. Seems odd that both are broken. I checked the price and they are 25 quid each plus vat.

Welcome to TLF Andy. :welcome:

And I think the soft roof should stay. Don't get rid of it. (see what I did there?)

Seriously now, I have not heard of any others on here that I can recall that have said theirs are broken. I would suggest that if both are broken, the previous owner may have caused it by not doing something correctly? Did you buy it privately or via a dealer?

You should duck over to the Introductions area and say hi in there as well. Plus add photos. We're suckers for photos.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Hi and welcome Andy. The stay bars are usually very resistant to damage, I'd say that's an uncommon fault. £25 sounds pretty cheap to replace them too.

Same bars on my Type 116 and they've been abused and still all good. I'd say just unlucky as opposed to a regular issue.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!
