Mpls area.
Not much around here, so I'll end up flying and driving one home I think.

Trial by fire! Haha

When looking for service, I called the number on the Hopkins website and it forwarded me to the Jaguar dealership in Golden Valley. They didnít have a single Lotus car at the place and not a single sign to let you know they sell new Lotus cars there. But there is one sales rep and one mechanic for Lotus. I had made an appointment there several weeks in advance and the one service tech wasnít there during my visit (he called in that morning, but I found this out after driving for over 5 hours). Overall, I was less than impressed.
