I wasn't sure where to put this under G-Cars or those other flashy ones  :angry:

Theres a good point here Troy:

G-cars have features that are on the much later cars. :P

Late G-cars and early Stevens have the same engines. :rolleyes:

My Stevens SE has basically the same engine as the S4. :angry:

The S4s has pretty much same bodywork/trim as the V8. :D

As we have seperate Tech sections for each model,

owners will still have to look at other models tech

pages to find everything, or risk missing something


I guess the search facility will help here though ;)

I've got to check a few things out over the next few days but I think you guys are ganna start to like me :rolleyes:

I am slowely finding out where all those little bits come from that make up your pride and joy and I'm trying to find the best prices. What's more I'm doing it all for you guys! .............................. ok thats a lie I've got to replace so many things on the car that the price tag the word Lotus carries with it is starting to rub me up the wrong way. As I find them I'll post them.

Bids do you have the facility on this forum to pin posts so that they always stay on the first page. If you do then we could put little snippets of information like this were they are easy to locate.

You know the sort of thing:

Part - Origination of the part - availability - Price - Link

Oh and if someone wants to edit my posts to correct the spelling feel free cos I can't spell for tihS :angry:

Someone gave me this as a word document. But whoever compiled it must have taken some time over it so i assume its correct. But will not state as such. And will not state the fit or quality of parts are better/worse than stock

HTH :rolleyes:

Oh and here's another but you'll have to select 'Door Handles' cos there isn't a direct link

Door Handles


I've been looking for some newer door handles for a long time to replace my scruffy old ones. The Land/Range Rover ones are REALLY expensive to buy new, over 50 quid each last time I looked.

As I'm coming over to the UK in a few weeks I was wondering if anyone knows of any dealers who specialise in recycling Land/Range Rover parts.
