Am unsure what you mean by turnolock but I have some pictures of my philips rn712 on my laptop that I can post now. when I return to the UK I can take some specific photos if you want.

Yeah its not a Turnolock the RN712 is the correct name.

I ask for pics as i,ve found one at long last with the microphone and want to see how it all mounts.

I had these pics before Paul but lost them!!

I can,t believe after a very long search i finally found the complete setup.

Its totally mint as new NOS

it has all the fitting for mounting the mic,and even the neck cord that you clip the mic to to record whilist driving.

Stunning example and will look great all fitted,but have to get some pics of one in a car first for referance.

Over to you Paul!!!

Hi Tocus

You say you missed it,so did i!!

It had already been listed on E-bay once before this time and had no bids,i spotted it by accident the 2nd time,i think it was listed wrongly.

Look foward to the pics,can i ask you to e-mail them to me aswell Paul?

Many thanks for the pics Paul,most helpful,i won,t delete them this time!

Can i ask any other Elite owners if they have the little metal clip on the lower dash to be used to clip the mic into place?

Even if you done have this radio is the clip still there?

I wanted to know if Lotus fitted the clip to every car or only cars having a RN712 fitted from factory.

i saw also the metal clip on this car, what i saw..

so i think this is real out of the factory,

 

just to find a radio is rare, and fint it complete is very very rare!!

good luck with it!
