With no dealerships in sight, short of a mirage, most of my servicing will be local or self. What should we expect in terms of timing for a shop manual to be available to the general public?
Arno said:I think Stefan in germany already bought the 'updates' to the Elise service manual for all the Toyota related bits, so they are already availabe.
no - I suppose that the Federal Elise will get her "own" manuals, the "121" series, as typ no. "121" specs the US bits and the first "121" bits are listed in the Lotus parts list (did you know the US Elise gets a different ECU - A121E0001F ECM-ELISE (NORTH AMERICA) 943,22 €) . But most definitely the "120" manuals could be a interesting read for all waiting list people.The service manual and parts list will probably be shared between all models, so once you buy an up-to-date version from Lotus you get all the information on the older cars too.
