    I did a search in this forum and found nothing negative or positive......so I will pose the direct question.

    Has anyone here done any business with them.....and if so.....what's the general consensus about their "rep" and their cars............?

    I am a dealer who is looking at doing business with them.

    I purchased my 1993 512 TR from them. Great experience. I also know them very well as I'm an attorney who has represented many people at the dealership for traffic infractions.

    Contact my at 206-650-6560 if you have any other questions.

    I've dealt with Dave Bruski (pronounced like the nickname for beer) and have always been pleased.

    And what are you mad at them about? You say you had a bad experience, but just point to some other thread on an Elise forum. Just because others did not want to spend MSRP or over (if supply and demand are not met), does not mean it is a bad place. One is not forced to buy from them. Furthermore, the Elise sales are for new cars, while mostly they deal in used sales.

    They are Lotus distributors.
    I got in their waiting list for an Elise on December 2003 and I was given number 89 on it. The delivery date they gave me was spring 2005. Time went by and every time I contacted them the delivery date was moved; first it was summer 2005, then winter 2005, and then at the end it was winter 2006!!!!
    I had a contract with them, but they flat out lied about the delivery dates, and they completely bumped me out of their list.
    They claimed that there were no cars in any dealer in the country, so my choices were to wait or pay $3,000 for a car that did not have the options I ordered. When in fact I found several dealers that had cars and they were selling them for under MRSP.
    I had a bad experience with them. May be I am the only one, but I don't think so for what I have heard from other people.

    I've first met David Bingham in the late '80s when he attended one of Francis Mandarano's meetings for preparing the 1988 Monterey Maserati marque celebration.
    Seemed nice and polite, but I've never done business with him.

    While all retailers will have disgruntled buyers, there was an especially serious thread here last year where their service department really took a stinging.

    I purchased my S55 AMG from them a year ago and had a good experience. Honest and straightforward from my experience.

    I bought my 911 a few years back from them, they treated me very good, backed up what they said, and when it was worked on, they gave me a free rental car. I would buy from them again....

    I've had mixed experiences with them; Rene is a very friendly guy and knows his stuff, a pleasure to talk to.
    One employee however I got to talking with used my contact number as an opportunity to sell me on some "I have a CD I think you might want to see", "I have contact with the 200 most influentual business people in America..." etc. etc. MLM b.s. (take your pick) and then had the nerve to berate me when I declined.

    Mixed experiences on transactions both inside and outside the car business. If you keep it simple it should be ok...

    Thanks again for all the feedback..........I've just entered into a deal with them and have sent a deposit down......will be flying there this week with my mechanic to inspect the car and finalize the transaction.

    If I am impressed I may buy 2-3 more cars while I am there.
