Peninsula Lotus


Recommended Posts

Greetings South Westers

I have had a letter in the post this morning from Peninsula Lotus announcing their closure!

Effective immediately. I guess it was only a matter of time as they were not exactly on a main road. Shame though as I only ever had good service from them.

Is that closed down Rick or just closed the Lotus franchise bit? Either way its a shame cos it was the nearest access point for factory parts. Mind you I've only used them once in 3 years here - to get some new A pillar seals for the M100 when Lotus reintroduced them after a 4 year wait! Where is the nearest genuine Lotus dealer in the SW now? Bristol?

The letter simply says

"we regret to inform you that Peninsula Cars, including the car sales, service and parts departments will cease trading on the 5th November 2010.

The Closure of Peninsula in no way effects Oaklands Country Store and the Esso filling station which will continue to trade and expand on the site"

thats it

Drove past today, petrol station and shop still open, dealership closed :mellow:

TBH I stopped taking my Esprit there when their "9xx engine specialist" set the carbs so rich it felt soggy... I re-set them with my simple tools to get better performance and no headache when parking up in the garage... I know I'm no spanner monkey but even I could see it was too rich, I've balanced the carbs enough times to know good from just OK.

On the positive side, it was the first place that I managed to get into an Elise with the roof on whilst sober. The previous three times required the inherent fluidity of a hangover :wacko:
