Lotus Elan

Could not resist this...

PostPost by: pereirac » Sat Jan 26, 2013 1:51 pm

Just received my latest copy of Club Lotus magazine, as usual filled with lots of interesting article.

One article in particular caught my eye .. "Save 20% on the entire Lotus Originals range ..", so far so good (as this gives me more money to spend on the car). However to secure your discount you have to go to the lotusoriginals.com website and enter the special Club code, a 26 character long string of letters and numbers!! I doubt even MI5 require codes this long to enter their websites.. :D

Visted the Lotus Originals store in Regent Street two weeks ago. Suprised how busy it was and well worth a visit.

Someone must be buying as the sales staff are looking forward to a trip to Hethel when the weather improves to test drive the V6 Exige as they exceeded their sales target for 2012.
The price of the keyring is silly but there is a lot good lower value items.
Compared to the trashy Ferrari store on the other side of Regent Street the Lotus store is upmarket and very well laid out. A nice place to take a rest from shopping and sit in an armchair and look though the selection of Lotus books . Some nice Lotus photos on the walls also.

You have to careful ording on the website as some comes direct from Italy so postage can be high.

Thanks,
I will certainly visit next time I am in Regents Street ... I gather the 'Hethel shop' is having an 'up to 50% while stock last sale' but this ends at the end of January
