I think it is a GM part, so you should find it off most GM products - I know it was from the Vauxhall/Holden Calibre, (+ some other Holdens in Oz), etc... should be quite common.

I bought the rubber base gasket from this guy on Ebay, and it is a perfect replacement.

He ships to Europe....just email him the dimensions and he will verify fitment before you buy. At the time I bought (Feb) he was selling two types of gaskets....but I believe the one that worked was from a VW....but if you give the inside and outside diameters he will double check.

Remember that if you replace the whole base, that it is "amplified". Buy a non amplified base and you will have almost zero radio reception. So you need that extra electrical wire for power to the base. I believe this guy also sells the amplified bases...but not sure if the connector is a match. The price for this part seems Ebay may find you a good used one...the Lotus price is insane....and they only sell the complete base to get the gasket.

I remember verifying that the part is a Vauxhall part....but it wasn't cost effective to get the part from the UK for me.
