OEM Plastic Raised Lotus Letters Badge on Ebay

So I am in the process of painting my Rear clam tail section black and needed to order a new (Raised Plastic) Lotus Letters set. I first checked the tride and True Ebay. To my dismay and surprise one set sits on ebay and it is $86 and still has 10 hours left. I immediatley called Ira Benson at Rothrock Lotus to see what this part costs there. $35.00 Shipped. So if anyone on here is bidding you better call Ira (Rothrock Lotus Parts Manager) to order it. His contact info is below.

Everything at Lotus Garage is OEM... they're factory parts.

Go to the site then follow this chain:

OEM Parts > Elise/Exige > Exterior Fittings > Decals, Badges & Protective Film > 07a Badge, L O T U S,'raised' letters
SKU: A124B0326F

Enjoy~

Thanks I stand corrected. I thought it was the other company who was selling Lotus Letters. Lotus Garage is awesome :-)

Yeah... seen those too... they looked like rough hand-filed aluminum letters...

I'd rather have the factory "chromed" plastic parts any day!

and one more point...

if you're going to buy OEM parts, at least buy from an ET sponsor. i don't think rothrock even posts here, much less provides any support funds.

OEM parts more than doubled during Bahar's watch.

I could be wrong, but from really old threads here, it looks like oem clams used to be about $2500.

Yup. Weren't they $80 a year ago? At this rate, I should pull out some funds from my stock options and start investing in badges. Sheesh.

There is an alternative. I recently had a new rear clam installed. My independent Lotus shop called and recommended the Lotus badge on the rear transom. IMO, much more attractive. $92.65 at Lotus Garage.

From what I have been told, the shiny "L 0 T U S" lettering was applied only to Lotus cars shipped to North America. For the rest of the world, the cars were shipped with the badge.

This was a good marketing stategy. Unlike Europe, few Americans are aware of the Lotus brand.

They are cheaper on European sites now that the dollar is doing better, but the price of shipping offset the savings.

Or you could try getting these for free from Toyota if they bring back the program

Toyota more than a car.
