I hope they aren't planning to fix this car then sell it to someone. The chassis is not only bent, but bent diagonally. It's never going to drive nor handle correctly even if they can get the static suspension to fit within parameters. I'd really hate for someone to buy it and think this is how a Lotus was supposed to feel... Sheesh.
Btw, Doge, you DO want that Larini SE exhaust! Unlike the Stage II it is quieter around town, picks up a few DB more than stock on the 2nd cam, doesn't drone like the Stage II (IE: you don't need a pocket full of asprin and ear plugs to be in it for more than ten mins), etc. It also looks a lot better coming out over the diffuser than the afterthought-looking stock ones.
