Very nice finish on the red . Did he do the rear screen as well or is that a new roof ?

He didn't have time to do the roof or the rear window but I did the window in the past with some acrylic headlight cleaner from Maguiars. The roof was new at some point but before I took ownership so I don't know exactly when. Its got a label on it that says Trim Technology and its the later design.

Looking at the standards of driving here I think they believe the same thing !!

In fact, they don't seem to care what's in front or to the side of them either !!

Hello All!

After a test few days ago at the sellers' place near Chinon in the Loire valley, my new (to me) car has just been delivered behind the Vincennes Castle, close to where I live (and where the seller, a friend from French Club Lotus who restored it, had space enough for his truck).

After a first run in Paris just for the fun, without the doors (even more impressive), it is now parked at home.

And this, believe me, makes me smile! :-D

I now find the Elise very practical and the M100 even more like a modern GT...

Each of them reinforces the qualities of the others and raises the already high opinion I have about the brand.

Regards from France from a happy man.

What would you do with LHD cars?


By the way, we also keep Bordeaux... (together with St Malo and La Rochelle).

I'd take the bugger to Spain.

At least it is not about getting the cars and Bordeaux back to England ... :wink:

Did you made the trip with the M100?

I was talking of the town itself of course...

During 3 centuries it was a possession of the Crown.
