Nice, congratulations on the Elise! 

Don't rely on anything really from the MOT. Pop in into a specialist (somewhere like Back On Track in Guildford) for a once over and Jez will let you know the condition and any work (urgent or nice to be done) that's required :)

Looks good. Glad you got what you were after.

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

Thanks! I was thinking about giving Lakeside Engineering a call as they're my local I believe. Does anyone have any experience with them?

They've been around a long time, Tim knows the small platform cars really well :thumbup:

Tim a decent guy at Lakeside. Personally, I would fit your own seat covers before the service - I do this even with a main dealer. I have lost count of scuffs on a Lotus due to poor protection. I use waterproof generic covers bought via FleaBay.

A LF1 Exige recently needed new cill trim due to clumsy workshop behaviour from an agent you would think would know better. I cover mine up before any workshop gets the car.

That's interesting not really something I considered before. Would you also do this with other cars, haven't heard of this before but I guess it makes sense if you want to keep the seats in the best possible condition.

Well....work boots and a Lotus are not happy bedfellows. Due to tight egress/access, trim can take a battering. Likewise a McLaren or other 'silly' cars. 

Any car with classy trim and/or wide seat bolsters, I pre-fit covers. What harm can it do?
