I've just checked my emails and I bought this in 2009 for my SE. We'll get to the bottom of this!

It's probably not a Lotus part, looks like a snow plough to me.

Did the Empire fit them for use on, say, planet Hoth? If so, it'll be something made by Mattel.

That's a packing sticker rather than a part number sticker so might not help us in this instance. They're stuck on from the pick sheet as the order is put together.

Ok then, let's get rational and assume that the pick list sticker is for the right part - as ordered by Bibs - but they have picked the WRONG item. Hence Sparky's frustration with a red herring flapping around in his hands for years. It must have got a bit smelly by now?

So. Was it ordered direct from Lotus, in which case it must be off another model (Europa? Dunno), although Sparky says he has looked.

If it was ordered off of a third party dealer then it literally could be anything.

@Bibs where did you get it from sir? 


I tempted fate...now my Esprit V8 IS in bits...(sob)

This one's already in General Forums / Lotus / Motoring / Cars Chat.  Maybe it needs a more catchy title...

This is epic sleuthing.  We can make a series, call it 'Don't F**k With Lotus Drivers On The Internet'.

Obviously no trouble to pop out to the barn, get the ladders out, cover off, organise lighting, empty the glovebox, take pics, reverse previous actions.

I’m gonna get fried knackers. The smell was dreadful and I managed to get red paint on the oven racks. She had to clean the oven out afterwards.
