Lotus Elan

Has anyone bought from lotus-mistry.com?

Hi,
I found a Website in Canada selling Lotus parts. Have you bought from lotus-mistry.com. The guy’s name is Arun Mistry.

I want to buy an expensive NOS part from him, but want to check out if he is legitimate first. His payment method for the site is PayPal, so it feels a little sketchy. Thank you for any input! Tim

I thought using paypal was a good thing? Better than a bank transfer for buyer protection.

Hi,
I don’t know. Is that true?

Someone on this forum has to have bought something from this site…I hope.
Thx,
Tim

I too thought Paypal was safe, so long as you don't use the Friends and Family option.

I see they are in Vancouver- I rarely get there (even though it is not very far away), but I think several people on here are from Vancouver (BC).

I have never seen them advertise in Lotus Club BC, which is only $25.

Find out where the limits are, and start from there

Update, Ron Minstry is a Ford parts man.
Quality, and references from the BC Lotus Car Club.

Most parts are mostly refurbed and painted. Prices are astronomical and not sure what you get.
