Well I can now answer my own question. The little flivver came home a couple of hours ago. 05:30 start to drive a sleepy SO to Hethel in the filthy rain and then joy of joy the little flivver all gleaming and clean and neat.
I have been in touch with Lotus and the Vauxhall liaison guy at Hethel (Mike Pumfret?) and they didn't need a lot of persuading to book it into the Lotus Service / Sport & Performance facility run by Glen Smith. Its almost too late now but did I do the right thing?
Lotus have done what was needed very tidily and pretty well to time. They have been pleasant, courteous and attentive. Useless at committing to when something would be done but it was actually ready when they hinted it might be.
They also fixed most of the non-accident little niggles (e.g. gearbox linkage and dash panel and passenger headrest etc etc etc). I don't want to break their rice bowls but they didn't charge for any of these little extras at all. "We've taken enough money off the insurers and we want it to be right for you". Magic.
Oh yes, and while they were at it they sprayed all silver fittings body colour (the V the vauxhall logo etc) and it looks very tidy indeed.
And had I missed her? Oh yes indeedy. That grumbly sound as she shrugs and stretches into life when moving off from cold. The first roundabout exit in second gear on full boost as she slams into the slot. Settling to her work purring down the A11 at 4000 in 5th. Snetterton in the rain. A stultification of Stobarts passed in a 3rd gear rising howl. Oh yes, I'd missed her.
And is she as good as new? Better. I had to turn the heater down on the way back.
Lotus do a nice job.
