'06 Exige here, thus clam removal needed. Galpin Lotus did it for me for ~2350 (cost includes including the resistor pack). They left a hose end-cap on my radiator (inside the clam), seemed to have dented my radiator (the very visible radiator in front of the the windshield) while leaning over the car, and re-installed one headlight incorrectly. Their service manager essentially called me crazy because they are "highly trained" and thus can't make mistakes. He thought I would be happy with 10% off a future service (as if I would go back), but none of the staff apologized. I am going through senior management now.

Edit: I am punishing myself for not making this a winter project.

Special thanks to this thread for confirming the symptoms of a degrading resistor pack: intermittent fans, one fan speed dying before another.
