I was looking at those last night - crazy!!
If you add up the parts he has for sale it’s over £6k and that’s just doors, bonnet, boot lid, wheels, interior etc
Doesn’t include engine, gearbox, etc

So that makes ours worth about £10k if you break for parts 😱😱

I'm sure Mike's prices are a bit out of date on Lotusbits.com but last price he published for those wheels was £50 a piece, so the seller should just drop the "1".

Unbelievable.
Don't tell Alan he could buy a damaged front bumper for only £300!!! and that's only half of it.
We've both just picked up NOS rear for a fraction of that.

What goes together.... Must come apart.

Other than Alan's airbags, the next best thing is the warning "No timewasters". The main person wasting people's time is the seller, at that price!!

Pricing aside, I think those wheels look pretty sharp! Were they ever offered with that finish- gold center/polished lip? I've only seen them with silver painted finish.

No silver is standard. That's an owner customisation. Easy for a shop to recreate
