Lotus Elan

New Elan +2 Owner from South of France

PostPost by: ChriS7ven » Tue Sep 22, 2020 2:50 pm

Hi all,

My name is Christophe and I live in the south of France, I'm introducing myself on the forum because I've finally got back my Elan+2 that I bought in England two years ago....

For the little story, the carrier in charge of repatriating the car by my insurance (Yes, I broke down with the Lotus :lol: ) completely compressed the back of the car.
To manage the file between the insurances, the carrier, the automotive expert, the insurance experts and to repair the car it took just two long long years...

But I can now savour this moment and discover all the subtleties of my little Elan.
See you soon on the forum, because I think I will have some questions 8)

Christophe,

Welcome. We have a number of owners based in France who post on here regularly.

Covid permitting, my restoration target is to have my Elan ready to drive to the south of France next summer, so perhaps we could all meet up to celebrate Lotus, the weather and the wine.

Andy.

Bonjour Christophe,
Whereabouts in the south of France are you? I also have a Plus 2, and I’m in Gironde not far from Bergerac.
Regards
Steve

Looks like you might be a couple of hundred miles apart

Thank you for your welcome,

For Steve, I live in the Var (Fayence) more on the South East side. A few kilometres separate us ;)

Andy for next year, with pleasure there are a lot of vineyards here to celebrate Lotus... :mrgreen:
I can offer tools and space if members of the forum need small repairs during the holidays in the south ;)

Of course :D
Maybe she is already known on the forum because I still have the English registration.
