Just wonder if anyone can recommend any garage with specialist knowledge on the above car type, please?

I hope to move to the Chester area next year, so I'm just getting prepared, for now!

Many thanks!!!

I have a M100 a few years back, they don't break so you don't need a garage !! Except maybe, the window regulators and the head lights. Oh and the oil filter is impossible to reach unless you're mr tickle.

They bloody leak though.

Yes, I agree that the Elan M100 seems basically reliable but (like me) it does nowadays get struck by 'age related' problems, from time to time!

My car is now 21-years old, so I've had to have some replacements for rusted-thru suspension bits, plus a recent perished fuel hose.......

I guess this sort of work COULD (perhaps) be done by a 'normal' garage, but it's much better to have someone who knows & understands the model and has access to the parts!
