TechCentre in Chicago area?

Long shot - but just in case, is there anywhere that isn't Lake Forest that has an active Lotus Tech Centre in the Chicagoland area? Battery went flat on the Evora while it was at Nuccio Auto, so the airbag indicator is on. Pretty sure it just needs a reset, would be nice to pay less than $200 for Lake Forest to see it and reset it.

There's a place in the city, on lake street in the west loop. I haven't been there, but they have the Lotus marque on a sign out front, so I assume that means they work on them?

I don't know. I don't trust taking my car anywhere.

Check out the post date. This is like 2 years old.

Now we have both Glenview Luxury Imports and the new Nuccio garage opening in a few weeks. GLI has a rarity in Chicagoland - an in-ground alignment rack.

Drives a Prius (clearly knows nothing about cars).

Can GLI be trusted to work on our cars? I haven't heard any first-hand accounts.

I had scheduled with them for some maintenance work. Biggest one, replacing my stock rad for a pro alloy. I spoke to the tech(forgot his name) over the phone and seemed very knowledgeable and understanding the care for our cars needed. Also, read a few posts from others about taking their lotus there. Although, did not report back on the outcome. I can assume it went all good since no complaints.

With that said, once I heard TJ was coming back in town, I cancelled my schedule with them in a heartbeat for TJ. If your work can wait a couple weeks, many would recommend him for any job. I believe the expectation is for Nuccio Service Center to start beginning of July.

If it can't wait, another member shared this shop that he's been going to for some work. I believe it was @Entropy240 that has been going there yearly. He shared his experience with me about them from maintenance work to aftermarket parts installs and they sound very knowledgeable and careful with our cars.

Hope that helps

Hey TJ, Are you going to be in Addison IL now? I thought you had moved to Nashville...

If so, I will reach out via a PM regarding some work I'd like to have you do.

Thanks!

@Verichai , I am in Addison with the Nuccio's now (opening 7/1/19). I was in Nashville, then this opportunity came up The thought of being back home, close to family and friends, and working with the Nuccios again..... it was just too good to pass up!!

I replied to your PM, and would love the opportunity to earn your business, and to care for your beautiful Elise again.

Thanks!!

@esseye , we need to make the place a little prettier (still getting organized and settled in), then we will likely have a Saturday BBQ like they have done here in the past. I would love to have a huge Lotus Get-together here for sure though. Just need a little time.

Late on the reply, but I got a sneak peak of it as I dropped my car off to TJ a week ago. Looking forward to the finished setup. Thanks again TJ!
