Cool I'm check those sites out now.

FYI, I've started a website for people to ( for free of course ) upload photos of their cars.

And I also need to get histories of car makes and models, so that's why I am looking for resources on Lotus'

Thanks all.

Nice your +2 looks really good. My dad still has his Elan (not the +2) that he bought back in 78. It's just sitting in his garage. Once I have a house with an actual garage I mean to buy it off him and get it back on the road. :)

Norwegian....
Sweden actually has a very big Lotus community compared to Norway. There are precious few old Lotus cars here, at the big spring sports car show here I had the only +2, with about 650 cars in attendance.

Just found this site after buying an air filter for my +2, the local factors Fram catalogue says it should be a CA614PL, but it does not fit. Even cross referencing my old filter a Crossland 855 they said it was a CA614PL.

It should be a CA2632PL according to this site. It even gives the dimensions of the filter :D
