hi i'm new to the forums and i've decided after visiting the lotus factory in the uk (highly recommended btw, and dont forget the classic team lotus tour even if you'renot in to f1), that i need to buy a lotus. been a huge lotus fan for as long as i can remember.

so i've decided on the europa as a car to get. according to ateco only 26 europa's were officially brought in to aus, 24 being the S, 2 being the SE. i know it's not going to be an easy search to find the right one, but i've got to start somewhere.

i'd love to know what colours came here and what options the cars came with - does anyone have info on this?

and does anyone know ones for sale or the owner may consider selling? i know there is one in brisbane at the moment on carsales (overpriced imo and i'd rather not have a modified one) and futurisms has indicated in other posts he wants to sell (i've sent him a pm), but are there others?

i'd absolutely love an SE, but somehow i dont think that's going to be possible, so an S will just have to do lol

futurism just posted today about wanting to sell his Europa S ( in thread lotus-elise-buying-advice-post-price-drop). Maybe give him a Private Message for more info.

EDIT: Ugh... I see you already did PM him. It would help if I read your post properly!

Another vote for buying futurism's car!

He's been on here a long time, has been honest about any issues and always seemed to be on top of keeping the car in good nick. Having that history and an owner who actually uses the car as intended means you'll get something ready to drive and enjoy.

C'mon, do it!
