Had my '05 Elise of Plano in late January for the oil line recall, also told me it was not worth doing the ECU recall. I'm not worried that since I've not had any issues with getting the car inspected just recently or ever.
Spoke with the tech for a bit when I went to pick her up, he was very knowledgeable about the process and made me feel very comfortable about getting the oil line recall done correctly. He noted that he didn't have any issues with the oil coolers. She's was track tested out at MSR at the early Feb TDE event. Since I am now confident in the oil lines, I drove her harder at the track than I have in quiet sometime
. Then with almost 300 track sessions on the car before the recall, all my oil lines never showed any issues
. The tech even gave me back the hose clamps I put on all the fittings, as just something to help with keep my hoses in the suspect fittings
. The tech said my car looked really good for all the track time I've put on her. Reminds me of that old Hethel Lotus guy at LOG 26 who told me I was going to destroy my car driving it this hard at the track, hey that's how we roll in TX
. Maybe he already knew the oil lines were crap then
Going to change my tranny oil again soon, so I'll take another close look at all the new fittings and clamps to see how they all look. I've put about 1200 mile and 3 track sessions at MSR 3.1 on the car since the the recall. Be great if this car lasts forever
... Well, hope you all have good experience with Lotus of Plano too
