That's good news. Hopefully they will still keep up a good spares stock. I wonder if they will continue to buy and sell good Lotus examples?

Paul Matty officially closed last Friday 27th April. I believe the car sales are moving to Stourbridge and the parts side has been sold but not sure if it’s gone to the same purchaser? Also I’m unsure if parts will still be available from Bromsgrove? I’ll pop in and report back :burnout:

As said above, the parts business has been sold to Classic Team Lotus.

They also have just confirmed this, and added they are relocating the parts business to Hethel.

Seen on fb classic elan and +2 page https://www.facebook.com/groups/Lotus.E ... 717559291/

When I last spoke to Paul, he was holding out for the right buyer, ideally for the whole business but this looks like the best halfway house. I suspect, the current premises will be turned into affordable housing now.

Any news on the service side? Roy and Co? I’m in need of a cambelt swap and not sure I trust anyone locally?

Believe a Stourport company have taken on the servicing side: Classic Sports Cars

See their website: http://www.classicsportscarsltd.co.uk
