I have to give a big thumbs up to elise-Shop.com. I ordered an aluminum radiator from them. Total cost to my door was $395 (after getting a $15 bill from UPS for duty). It shipped from the Netherlands to my door in Oregon in three days. I have never received a part from a US Lotus supplier in less than a week (and they all seem to charge a premium on shipping).

Yeah, it's pretty amazing to know that international vendors are capable of matching level of service provided by local vendors. The shipping times are very reasonable.

I wouldn't be afraid to buy from overseas since the exchange rate favors the US at the moment.

I'll have to remember this for when I need a radiator in the near future, cause I know I'll eventually have to replace it!

As a Dutch member I can only concur. As a new Lotus owner joined a bbq/pubmeeting organised by Elise-Shop and a Lotus specialist last weekend. It's a nice new place. Knowledgeable owner and a real warehouse with stock :-)

And the low Euro / strong $$$ are your friends at the moment !

+1 on quick shipping. UPS duty was about $14 to Los Angeles.

I had the same experience with these guys. Four days to my front door with the radiator and 4 liters of coolant. Been going over six months now and no complaints. If only the US side was this fast.

100% concur. Ordered mine mos ago from him, concerned that shipping would take a while. Arrived in 3 or 4 days (and finally goes in this Fri.). It's a beautiful piece of work --all AL with flawless welds. Very impressed with the operation and his responsiveness.

The garage is... moving.
