With a wet ending to winter, how about a spring get together and drive?

Where-
Silicon Valley Autogroup
620 Blossom Hill Road
Los Gatos, CA

When-
April 11 (Saturday), 9am to 1 pm

What-
Meet, Elise/Exige inspection, refreshments, sale- 15% off everything in the parts department. Good starting that day until the end of April (As of a month ago none of the autocross winners of the gift cert. have used them, a good excuse to pick something up). Refreshments and lots of cool cars to check out.

Weather permitting, at the end of the meet will lead a back road drive, with a stop at Alice's for lunch.

Silicon Valley AutoGroup will be helping us get ready for the spring and onward driving season. They will be offering a free Elise/Exige check up.


CHECK LIST:

Check oil level and condition.
Check coolant level.
Check transmission fluid level.
Check toe link torque. ___Were they loose?
Check washier fluid level.
Check all tire pressures.
Check tires for wear.
Check torque of wheel bolt.
Check operation of all exterior lights.
Check horn and hazard switch.
Check condition of brakes.
Check brake fluid level.
Check for any body damage.
Check for underbody damage.
Check all glass and mirrors.
Check door lock operation.

Check for service campaigns/recalls

Let me know if your interested in having this done. Need to get a head count to make sure everyone is covered
in a timely manner.

It's not that far. -poke- Heck I'll drive up the morning of and spend all day running Sears Point, then head home. Besides the back road run would be heading northward- leading back homeward, for you. They always have a bunch of other nice cars, besides the Lotus to check out.

Just saw this. If I am not going to the Speedventures track day at Thunderhill, I'll be there (+1).

90% chance I will show up with my wife.

Cheers,

Edit: I won't need the inspection. Just there for the socializing and the drive afterwards :)

I'll try to make this as 15% off in everything in the parts department is a great tease but a get together is also good.

I'll probably make it. Thanks for setting it up Larry.

If I can't figure out what's wrong with my car before then, maybe SVAG can throw the scan tool on it;)

I'm going to try to make it down, too.

If anyone is going to be driving down I-680, I'd love to meet and drive down with you.

Just got a flyer in the mail from SVAG. Will be there, and hopefully get a new battery for my FOB.
