Thanks for the reply Turbopun. I'm a former LEC member. But since joining Lotustalk last week, have always noticed a small number of members looking at the Elan thread. So thought that this info may benefit a few of the members on here.
Yes, the LEC is the best place for information on the M100. I have not published a direct link to the information on the LEC. But I am quite well known there. So I assume that most of the LEC members know about it. And a lot of the info is floating around on various LEC pages and threads.
Have owned my Elan M100 since 2002. The (2010) Evora is now keeping her company in the garage.
I still love the little Elan. On paper. Not as fast as the Evora. But when your sat behind the wheel, with the roof down. It feels faster and more enjoyable. Has quite a few mods and once the turbo kicks in. The smile factor takes control. Strangely, I don't get the same feeling with the Evora. Yes. It's fast and pulls better. but... (note: It's not an Evora S).
I have very little knowledge of the later Lotuses. But I am spending a lot of time reading through past posts to try to learn as much as I can about my new car. Though it would be nice to offer something in return. I don't have much to offer at this point in time. 2 weeks ago I never seriously thought I'd have an Evora. Now there is one parked in the garage.
