Red Elan SE for sale with private plate £4550 - ** SOLD **

Postby Capman2 » Fri 17.08.2018, 17:03

Classic Lotus Elan M100 SE Turbo with private plate A18 RAG (A1 BRAG) included in the sale price. The vehicle was first registered in Oct 1990.

The car is registered at a Cat N. I believe this was due to vandalism prior to my ownership.

I have owned this car since 2006. I purchased the car from a close friend who had owned the car since 2003 so I can vouch for the last 15 years of the cars life. To date the mileage is 68k miles, has only covered 3k miles in my ownership and is stored in my garaged collection of ‘boys toys’ since purchase. I’m selling the car due to moving house and no longer have the space to hold the car.

The car has full service history up to 65k miles following which the car has been serviced by myself for the last 3k miles. As an engineer I always wanted things doing correctly.

The car is standard with the exception of: a Milltek Sport Stainless steel exhaust, LMG roll bar, drilled and vented front disk brakes and a stage 1 BBR turbo upgrade from an earlier period of its life.

The roof is in excellent condition with no tears or damaged to rear screen.

The seats are in good order with some wear to the drivers seat.

The paintwork is as expected for a car of its years with small scratches here and there but nothing too noticeable.

The car has a new MOT (you can check details online) and comes with the original handbook, spare keys and a history of old MOT’s and receipts.

If you have any questions or would like to view the car please message me and I will be more than happy to help. The car is situated in Blackpool in the North West.

Regards, Craig - AKA Capman + Capman2

Welcome anyway! :-)
First job, investigate why it would be an excellent idea to bin that ticking time-bomb of a BBR system!
Try inputting "+manual +boost +controller" and "+fuel +cut +defender" into the search function and see what results you get.

This thread might also compliment your reading: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=17991

In a nutshell: at the moment you are running unlimited boost and fooling your engine into bypassing its inbuilt safety features.
This is a dangerous situation to be in, and could prompt a disastrous bang - not the best of introductions to your new pride and joy.

Far better to remove and replace the system with an ESM Mountain chip. Maybe even go closed-loop at the same time.
If you're interested in pursuing this, let me know as I'm not too far away.
Striking fear into the hearts of duplicate posts everywhere...! :P

BCingU,
Neil ;-)

Thanks Neil that was a question I was going to be asking, I want to look after my Elan not blow it to smithereens!

It may also explain the receipt for a new turbo in the service history.

Yes I'm definitely interested in pursuing the ESM Mountain chip, I'd certainly buy you a few beers if you could help me out with it.

Thanks
