Hi, I am a relatively new owner of a 2011 NA Evora and would welcome any recommendations on where to take it to get a couple of minor, yet annoying, scratches sorted. I live in Northamptonshire and work in Bedfordshire so if any members have used bodyshops in this sort of area and have been pleased with the results, it would be good to hear from you. I am happy to travel to get the best quality work possible. I have found Option1sportscars in the West Midlands, who seem to specialise in Lotus and TVR bodywork repairs. Have any members used them? Also, I am contemplating refurbishing the alloys, so I am obviously keen to avoid any cowboys, so help here would be appreciated too. Many thanks for anyone who replies.

Welcome to TLF Ashley.

Option1 are excellent, I've seen their work and it's first class. Another choice is The Beaconsfield Workshop who are fibreglass wizards and have done work on several of our members cars.

Hi Ash, glad you could make it! Enjoy and check out the Evora section. Its full of great info and hints.

I know Ash as I very nearly sold him my car last year and he actually talked me in to keeping it with his praise :) (Sorry about that).

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.

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