...a can of fix-a-flat? I read somewhere that the car is supposed to come with it, but maybe that's just in the UK.

...the hardtop removal tool (torx screwdriver)? If so, where the heck did you find it in the car? I got the hardtop, but I can't find the removal tool. Fortunately, I have a torx screwdriver that worked.

The fix a flat can is clipped to the right side inner top of the trunkspace between the boot opening and the wheel well.

I would the torx tool for hardtop removal would be in tool pouch in the pocket of the battery cover.

Yep, that was the first place I checked. Not there. :(

Not a problem -- I'll just call Ascot, where I bought it. They've been great thus far, so I'm sure it won't be a problem.

I found my can. It's wayyy back there. What does a torx wrench look like? I'll bet I do not have one...
Looks kind of like a Phillips Head screwdriver, but the tip is more of a star shape. If you look at the screw heads that hold the hardtop in place, you'll see what I mean. You can't remove the hardtop without it. You can get them at Home Depot, but I'd like to have the official Lotus one, so I'm sure it's the proper size.

The Torx wrench is supposed to be in the hardtop bag. If I recall what I heard correctly.
Yep! Called my salesman today to ask about it, and he called back to say the service manager (who did the pre-delivery) saw it in the bag. Of course, that's where it was. Why didn't I see it? Probably because when I got the car, I sprung for the deluxe padded bag ($207 - ouch!), and put the original bag aside, still in it's wrapper -- with torx wrench inside. Didn't even think to look there! D'oh!
