Lotus Car Shop in Dallas Area (Advice)

Anyone know of any reputable or preferable Lotus repair/modification shop in the Dallas area other than the Lotus Dealer. Just trying to save some cash; anything is helpful!

There's a few options, but it sort of depends on what you need done?

Regogo Racing/Sports Car World, hands down is the place to go. They are Lotus specialists, and super-honest. Plus they have an awesome collection of cars to drool over. They run a vintage Lotus racing team as well, so they aren't always able to drop everything to do customer work, but give them time and they do excellent work at a reasonable price.

ANYTHING is better than the Lotus dealer's service department here. ANYTHING.

SCW does have a good reputation and they've been around for a long time. However, I have had good results with Park Place Lotus in Plano as well. The latter did the Elise oil cooler recall and I've had other work done there as well.

Great guys. Richard is a Lotus guy through and through.
Joe is an award winning Lotus mechanic and has crewed some awesome race teams.
They replaced my Elise clutch with ACT. Removed and replaced trans with new LSD one.
Added clutch stop. Kept me in the loop all of the time.
And…price was much less than I had expected!
Only shop I will use in DFW.
