True, all I need is the key :lol:

Good luck Colin. My car loves to set the alarm off when I just open the boot, never had that happen though :(

TADTS so I usually unlock the car first. The key fob is toast. Disabling alarm/immobiliser got me home Ok. The other key works fine.

What really is amusing is the reaction of my colleagues and the AA in resolving the issue and the help available. If it were not for this community (or I had a more mainstream car of unspecified  brand) I can only imagine I'd be in an AA truck right now.

Totally!!!  Having owned a couple of Elise previously then into Porsche and let latterly 2 x F-Types, you cannot put a price on that. The community is a key part of the ownership experience. Glad to hear it worked out.

@mawheele you are absolutely correct. Wherever you go in the world, it seems if you meet another Lotus person they are always happy to talk. I can think of very, very few other marques that have that.
