Try the scrapyards!

Lotus did make a thing (even in the service notes) that the UN1 was severely modified, casting material and all, so don't even think about using the Renault item.

But unless you've strapped a bottle of nitrous, a Turbo Esprit should be quite happy with a Renault 25 box. Adam Gumbier is the man to ask on the details (not sure if he's on LEF but definitely on UKLotusEsprit).

May: DON'T hit it with a hammer!

Clarkson: Why?

May: Cause it's the tool of a pikey.

Thanks..

I have located a couple of 369s in scrap yards. However, my first prepference is for a UN1-26 or 27 with the RH shift. Then anything newer than UN1-13, then the 369.00 series

I believe the Renault 25 version is probably fine.. I actually highly doubt that Lotus did any such "severe modifications" .. I believe its been a ploy by Lotus to suck us into thinking that only the lotus supply is any good for these cars.

If you set no goals you shall surely reach them..
