Congratulations Dan. I know how much you wanted this spec and have taken time to find the right car for you. 

When do you get it home ?

Enjoy it 😀

Did you get the boot opened?  

Mine stuck once, must has become misalligned.  Have someone pull the handle and wiggle the boot around, hopefully it will pop open.

Good luck and enjoy the new beast!

Yep, got it open just this morning, looks like it's bent the mechanism tho.

Not sure if I should shut it or not again until it can be repaired

Don’t be too alarmed by it Dan, at sometime I think everyone has a Lotus boot problem.

I had a warranty upgrade on my Release lever and had the pin realigned and cable eased off. Mine failed as yours did on the drive home and I broke the lever. 

This is worth having done and I am sure Hofmannns would be happy to do. Good luck

Better than having the rear deck open on the Autobahn as the pin had rotated thru 180 degrees..... ask me how I know 😐

Anyone got any pics of the upgrade? Or where these parts can be bought?

I'm currently stuck with this... hopefully you can see the metal work is slightly bent up where it caught.

The dealership are working with me to fix it, but If there is a better part out there, I'd rather go with that.
