Nick is a great guy.

He used to answer questions on a factory Lotus board like this until it took too much of his time and he had to quit doing that.

Great source of technical information on all things Elise :)

Just remember that he can not always be objective as he works for Lotus, so can never say that another/aftermaktet product is better than the version sold by Lotus themselves...

Bye, Arno.

I can add to the vote that Mark is a great guy and a great guy to do business with. I'm on the waiting list at HRM despite living in VA as I've dealt with Mark on a previous Ferrari purchase.

Mark Starr is a true Lotus enthusiast. I demoed the 111S at HRM last summer. I might just make the trip down to the auto show. He will also be at LRP for the Lotus day in November. He owns a great racing Exige.

I too spoke to Mark and got myself invited. About two months ago I was calling around to try and find a CO Esprit to see if I liked the color. Mark had one and met me at his warehouse. Really helpful to me even though I did not order my Elise through him. Live and learn. Should we all have some way of identifying the other Elise Talk junkies, like a yellow and green carnation or carrying around a torque wrench?:)
