Not sure if this was posted yet, but thought it would be useful:

LOTUS has determined that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2009 Elise and Exige vehicles manufactured from January 05 2009 to May 07 2009.

On a small range of vehicles, including your own, it has been found that the bolts securing the rear hubs to the suspension may not have been correctly tightened. THERE IS A DANGER THAT INCORRECTLY TIGHT-ENED BOLTS MAY RESULT IN AN INSECURE REAR WHEEL HUB, LEADING TO A LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL. Lotus is instituting a vehicle recall campaign in order to ensure that all affected cars are checked, and where necessary, rectified. To minimise any risk, it is recommended that this work be performed at an
early date.
It only affects 28 cars and the owners should be receiving a letter about it but i've attached the TSB with affected vins.
