1. I have requested a written guarantee that ECU has not been modified and that warranty is 100% in tact and transferable.
2. I have also asked that they have a Lotus dealer review the receipts for the modifications and confirm, in writing that the modifications will not void the warranty (your insight would be especially appreciated here).
3. I'm able to pick this up for under $42k, which seems to be a great deal.
4. I have asked them to check what ECU codes they can without a Lotus-specific interface and provide them as I want to know the exact reason the light is on, AND I want it turned off.
1. Please keep in mind that a Porsche dealer is NOT a Lotus dealer therefore they do not know what to look for regarding the ECU..maybe if they called a Lotus dealer and asked, it "might" help. Also, although it's common knowledge that all factory warranties are transferable, Porsche has NO authority over Lotus warranty and cannot guarantee anything however, like I stated, ALL remaining factory warranties are transferable so no worries there.
2. Again, see #1 but I'd probably recommend that you have a Porsche tech speak to a Lotus tech to make YOUR life easier and DO NOT assume the salesperson will do this for you, you have to take action yourself...afterall, you're the one paying for it.
3. 100% agree, $42K for a 60th Anniversary Edition is a great deal and congrats if everything works out for you
4. See #2, have them talk to a Lotus tech because they are not going to know unless they have a Lotus service manual.
Good luck and post pics if you get
