how long does it takes for a part to arrive? I think my parts have been on order for 3 weeks and they still haven't arrived yet. They are small parts: grommet for soft top and some gasket for the oil tube...:shrug:

I waited a couple of weeks recently for some odd small stuff that wasn't in stock in the States - it's not entirely uncommon.

Try a Toyota dealer for the gasket and you can at least get the car on the road while you wait.

Have you called lotusgarage.com and see if they have it in stock? I've found that lotusgarage.com is a lot cheaper for parts than my local dealer (in Denver).

Sometimes things take forever...Most dealerships order Lotus parts in batches once a week, and don't keep a large inventory of spare parts on hand. After that, it's up to Hethel to give it to us.

Depends on what you're waiting for. I waited 9 weeks for some new trim.

one of the part I'm ordering is for warranty work, so I'm stuck with them on this one. Does people have good experience with Lotus garage? Maybe I'll try the next time I need to order anything.
