I don't understand. If LotusGarage was using the name 6 years before "MyLotusGarage" began using the name, and the two are located in the same Country, you go after them for trademark infringement. Although, since both companies are using the tradename "LOTUS," perhaps that is out of the question.
Under normal circumstances, any name that CAUSES CONFUSION AMONGST A CUSTOMER BASE is reason enough to file IP infringement claims against the company ESPECIALLY if they are losing you business, which they clearly are.
