The price of an MOT is £54.85
Lotus repairs and performance parts
As well as routine Lotus servicing, we are able to carry out repair work and performance upgrades - be they suspension, brake or engine related.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements - we're always happy to provide advice and prices for the work you have in mind.
Lotus geometry checks
We have a SuperTracker, fully computerised 4 wheel alignment machine and can carry out any steering or geometry checks or adjustments your car might need.
Ideally, you should have a 4 wheel alignment check carried out on an annual basis, or more frequently if you attend regular track days.
Guide prices, including VAT are:
|4-wheel alignment check only||£45|
|Alignment check, adjust front/rear alignment||£85|
|Alignment check, adjust front/rear alignment and camber||£170|
|Alignment check, adjust front/rear alignment, camber and castor||£250|
Please note these are guide prices only, and if steering and suspension bolts and fasteners are corroded and difficult to undo, or a car is particularly difficult to set up, extra charges may apply for the additional labour and/or parts required to carry out the work.

Lotus interior trim & hoods
We carry out all interior trim work from re-covering seats, to replacing hoods and tonneaus, to carrying out a complete re-trim. Our coach trimming experts, Shaun and Rocco have a vast wealth of experience from the simple to the most complex of projects.
We are continually developing our range of trim items for Lotus. For information about these, please click on Lotus Interior Trim Workshop
To simplify things for you when bringing your Lotus in for service, we have a free courtesy car you can use. Please give us plenty of warning if you would like to use our courtesy car - it is popular! Alternatively we can normally run you to/from Bedford or Milton Keynes mainline stations.

Should you require, we can offer a collection and delivery service for your Lotus Elise on our transporter.
