That is not completely out of line for a dealer. The job does take a long time and there is a lot of chance for error on the part of a shop (bolts loose, scratches, etc).

When I had my oil line recall done, the dealer wanted $900 in labor to install a new rad even though the clam was already off for the recall. I politely declined and did it with my friend at work, although I do have the advantage of working at Sector111...

You folks seem to have your own lingo here on the site. Is there some dictionary or reference document to let newbies in on the action?
Sticky is a where a thread is stuck at the top of a section. A non stuck thread get's pushed down as newer threads are made. If a thread becomes a sticky, it can't be pushed down by newer threads.

A PM is a private message between users.
I hope I'm referring correctly to a prior post. My comment: Thanks for the glossary!

Hello,
As a sincere long-time appreciator of the Lotus approach to building enthusiast automobiles, I was pleased to find a forum that welcomes and encourages the sharing of everything Lotus-oriented. My first drive in an Elan in the early 70's showed me why there is such a following for these cars. I have owned a number of British makes; Jaguar, MGB, Sunbeam, & Austin, but nothing short of a vintage XKE can elicit the feeling of cornering at speed in a Lotus. There is not currently a Lotus in my garage, however, I hope to remedy that in the future.

Hi all

Registering here as just re-purchased my previously owned Lotus Elise S1 (1996)

I am on most of the other forums as I had been looking for the car for a while, I was the original owner and just fancied getting the car back (midlife crisis possibly lol)

After the Elise I had an S1 Exige which I then ended up selling when getting married and starting a family.

Will no doubt have questions for some of you regarding ownership challenges etc whilst I get back in to running the car.

New to this sight. I have experience on working with the elise exige and evora. Looking to help out with some repair knowledge and some custom fab work that I have done for them as well.
