The Geometry check should be a no brainer really, especially for the G cars.

Is the authentication service one that Lotus provides on an otherwise routine, postal request basis?

(for those of us condemned to watch the LEF Factory Day play out from afar...<_<)

As far as I'm aware, no it's not I'm afraid.

Hi Bibs

Taken advantage of and booked both certificate and geonmetry check, just wondering how the service work fits in with the tour/track timings. I've requested with Annette and she said that she can do geometry check 1st thing, but don't really want to miss out on track time with the car if it's in a service bay. What are your thoughts?

Regards

Mat

You will be split into groups of approx 40 and each group will be doing one activity. Just make sure you are in a group with later track times. <_<

Hope thats ok.

Just called and they're fully booked on the geometry checks. :)

Bazza

Guessed that would be popular at that cost.

Also booked my in for Geometry check and Certificate

I also need the brakes done so I might be cheeky and ask for that instead of an A service. :) - especially as I'll be going round the track later. <_<

Marie says fine, please call glenn and let him know what you require. :) Very accomadating.

That'll teach me not to get on the ball asap - I was rather hoping to get the geometry check!

Never mind! <_<

Slightly concerned as had a call back from Glen this afternoon saying that due to time constraints, the geometry check is that only and NO adjustments. I was really interested in getting suspension set up by the factory and it seems this is now not happening. Has anyone else had this said to them? I feel a little guilty saying this after all the hard work gone in to arrange, but I feel slightly dissapointed.

Problem is that they cannot guarantee getting the suspension on and still let you go home :huh: Fine if there are no problems but if they have to start drilling bolts out etc, you would be stuffed. As to the geometry check, this is your one and only chance to have the vehicle fully checked over by the people who really know how it should be set up. This is a one hour check so it's not just a case of "nope it's wrong mate", you would also be fully informed of anything you need doing/adjusting.

You have to look at this the same as you do your certificate and build details.

Thanks for speedy post, feel a lot better now, it did feel a bit like "Yes it's right/no it's wrong" but a full diagnosis would be great even if no time to fix.

Glen told me the same thing but did say that I could take the print out away and then get a local Lotus dealer to adjust the set up if need be.

Not ideal but I totally understand where they're coming from and wouldn't want to be stranded in deepest darkest Norfolk if they couldn't put it back together again.. :huh:

Baz, I asked them about the ice blue paint, but they sold last unwanted 10,000 gallons to the council for a fiver, they needed a cheap under coat to paint on all school railings!

Just a thought about the geo. Sinclairs do the above job for
