Question Reliable-Trustworthy Parts Dealer for the US

Hi Everyone,

I have a 2008 Elise that I am trying to order parts, but not sure which website dealer to order from. Now that Sector 111 is not available to obtain parts from, not sure where to go. I have sent an email to mylotusgarage.com prior to ordering, but have not received an answer, so not sure if it's a real or scam website, especially when they have no phone number to contact them.



It would be greatly appreciated if you can share the website dealers you have order from, how efficient , and reasonable pricing.

Thanks in advance!!

The owner of Sector111 is now running InoKinetic.

I use Gator Motorsports for factory parts. For performance stuff: BOE, Blackwatch Racing, GRP(gregsraceparts). All these places have good reputations on here.

Reliable-Trustworthy Parts Dealer for the US

Depends what you need. If it’s Toyota bits that need replacing conicelli Toyota has a parts website that has good pricing (much better than buying from any lotus related site). And it’s the same damn part.

If it’s Lotus specific. [email protected] BRG, BWR, and even the monkey wrench racing guys can be helpful. Also Elise parts iirc is where I got my wheels. Best price around (cup 240 wheels) and they got here from the UK faster than the tires which were coming from somewhere in the US.

Shinoo at InoKinetic for parts and service. Trusted consultant for innovation performance ideas.
I've also had good part service from GRP (Greg) and HethelSport (Sherman).

Don't expect any kind of fast service or responses from mylotusgarage.com.

"... we have to strictly adhere to our site polices, one of which is no phone calls please. We can help you in every way by email."

They never did reply to my emails, though, and that was after I had already paid them. I definitely wouldn't expect any response if you haven't given them money.

I just ordered from InoKinetic for the first time and they shipped the parts fast which is amazing service from them, right now i am waiting for the parts.

Also I have ordered from The elise shop for the brake pads and wheel bolts and new locks for my car and they were helpful responding to my emails and their shipping service is on time as well.


Have good day ordering :-)

OEM parts: https://gatormotorsport.com/

Innovative tasty bits: https://www.inokinetic.com/lotus/

Go fast: https://www.boefab.com/

In the nearly 9 years I have owned the car, I have never needed anything for the car that was beyond those 3 links.

EDIT: If you're looking for carbon fiber bits, you can't do better than GRP, Greg is totally great to deal with, the prices are perfectly in line with what they should be, and the product is high quality.

@VisualEchos

That is an excellent list of top tier Lotus-oriented vendors, but I would definitely add blackwatchracing.com.

I didn't add Blackwatch because many of the products that BOE offers are the same, nothing against Fred or his business.

I'll go ahead and add some more links from places that I have purchased from with success.

Why didn't you include Charles of HK Fever for carbon parts? He has been advertising and selling on here for quite some time. I don't ever recall a complaint about his service or quality...

Carbon Fiber Parts [email protected] Photo Gallery by HKFEVER at pbase.com

I'd say he deserves to be included on this list.

British Racing Group / LotusGarage is great for OEM parts as they have access to parts from the factory but since they are not a dealer can source items from other places too so can get parts that are not readily available from the factory.

Also since it was mentioned in the original post just a reminder that Mylotusgarage is NOT Lotusgarage/British Racing Group
