The West Coast Lotus Meets are always fun, full of great people and a variety of events. And it’s in sunny & happy San Diego! October 20-23.

We’ll be there and hope to see you there too!

Both styles of our Brake Fluid Testers are back in-stock! Easily and quickly check your fluid for moisture before your brake peformance degrades.

Our Battery Charger Connection Kits are back in-stock at their 2021 prices.

We have learned that the manufacturer of the magnetic connectors has announced a significant price increase which will impact our future prices.

Ocean freight continues to be a major hurdle for us. Costs have tripled in the past fifteen months but we held our prices with the hopes that the increase was temporary--sadly, it has continued to go up and we need to make adjustments on larger import items.

Back in-stock! Our US made Hub Helper is a simple tool that helps keep your wheels stable when taking them off or putting them on your car.  It’s not a must-have tool but it does make your life quite a bit easier.

Tfuelincreasesucking & ocean freight costs have been rising steadily, especially in the past few months. We hope prices will return to previous levels but until then, we have fairly adjusted our rates.

Awesome bearings, Precise adjustment, Beautiful metal!

Both our Road Course Front Track-rods and V.2 Rear Toe-links are in-stock again!

You may have noticed that our inventory has been dwindling in the past months. We have placed orders for nearly everything out of stock, and our suppliers & fabricators are doing their best to fulfil our orders however foreign pandemic lockdowns, limited resources, & international shipping have been a constant hurdle.

As a result, we have stopped taking deposits and orders for many backordered items—this mainly affects our aero composite products and Lotus factory parts. If there is something you need and it’s in-stock, we suggest you buy-it-now. We hope to return to our normal practices & inventory soon.

Our next shipment of aero products should arrive in September. Many items have been pre-sold for months however we have most of our front bumpers and front clam accessories still availabile.

Update: The British £ continues to grow stronger which means the price of imported goods are getting higher, with significant increases in February. We will keep our prices intact for as long as possible but expect potential increases in the coming months. Combined with the pandemic restrictions, importing parts still remain slow. But on the brighter side, Brexit related shipping delays & customs clearance appears to have stabilized with DHL & FedEx.

Our HS Bilstein / Öhlins Shocks are done and finally available but supplies are limited.  Utilizing an original Evora shock body, these advanced shocks are a direct replacement and will bring your Evora’s handling to the next level.

Both our Front Track-rods & v.2 Rear Toe-links are back in stock! Give your suspension proper good looks plus the highest quality teflon-lined bearings while making them easier to adjust & tune. Track-addicts will love these as much as your alignment guru.

The cost of Lotus parts may be rising due to the strong British £. We’re also seeing shipping delays during the Brexit transition. We suggest getting your factory Lotus parts now.  For more, please read this.

Finally back in-stock! After numerous delays with international shipping & customs, our popular HethelSport Battery Charger Connection Kits are available again! They’re an easy & safe way to connect your Battery Tender, CTEK, or NOCO charger to your car.
