Although I'm not proud of my little telephonic outburst the other day, it does seem to have had the desired effect. Not a cheep from them since, :D .

I had a call from them today (Friday). I was polite, they were ok and I'm off their contact list. :)

I thought that I'd been reasonably polite, if a little sarcastic, on the first call that I answered but they got me at a bad time with the subsequent one. Having just finished an extended nightshift with barely 9 hours to get home, have something to eat, sleep, then get back to work for the next shift, I really didn't appreciate it when the phone started ringing every few minutes shortly after my head hit the pillows.

I'm normally quite a placid, laid-back sort of guy - honest! :D

Had really hoped we would have heard more about the proposed dealership/service centre in Scotland by now. Any news @Bibs from your sources. I understand Park’s have taken on the franchise and one of the Hamilton service branches are doing some work.....but nothing more than that. Would love to know more👍 I had heard Ayr for a showroom but I’m hoping that’s not the case as it’s location doesn’t make sense

I have had emails back and forward from Hethel over the lockdown period. 
They have suggested in one email that things are continuing to move much more slowly than they anticipated. My interpretation of that is ‘don’t hold your breath’ regarding a Scottish solution. They did acknowledge it was poor show for the Scottish contingency though. As a result mine is off to Oakmere for a new drive belt which is an engine out job and a new AC condenser unit. ( I said it wasn’t going to Hayden’s given the posts I’ve seen about them). They’ve looked at CMC’s report which he gave to me and are going to ship the parts to Oakmere ready for my cars arrival. Work required, when the cars been assessed by a Lotus approved centre technician 🤷🏻‍♂️, will be completed under warranty although it’s run out on my Cup. 
Onwards and upwards hopefully.

Hmm, I don't know the ins and outs of being an approved service centre. Is Craig on here to comment?

Morning. Disappointed to hear that. The last communication I received from Lotus suggest an announcement would be made by the end of June re Scottish dealership. Clearly past that date now, does not look good.

I'm taking my Evora to Craig this afternoon for it's 2nd Service. His stamp is worth far more than a Hayton Lotus one and I know his team will do a 100% proper job. He now looks after three of my cars (Evora, VX220 and S90) two of which are under manufacturers warranty.

I'll ask him about the approved Service Centre status but (1) he may not want to be quoted - which i will respect and (2) I am sure Park's will put a spanner in the works for that idea!

Parks have 2 pages of Franchises on their webpage......but there looks to be room for a small one down at the bottom next to our close friends Volvo - hopefully will be pinned there soon🤞👍
