What about Toxic Green 

Don’t joke, I am considering storing my exige for a year whilst I play with an Elise cup! 

I can't resist, you want bright?  Kawasaki Green

@TonyKL I still prefer the S2 Exige you had, fabulous colour scheme👍

😪 thanks Paul - I could get a cup in that colour scheme 🙂 but I think I should go bright this time - current favourite is Liquid Yellow!

Well just checked my V5! Certainly doesn’t sound that loud and like I said Goodwood tested my car 🤷‍♂️

Has this picture had any post-processing (colour is incredible)?

It was my car and featured in issue 4 of Absolute Lotus with the designer of the original Elise Julian Thomson driving the the car and have to say the colour is even better in real life.

Any closer to pulling a trigger TonyKL? 

Afraid not. I’ve got a test drive booked at the weekend (will go after newlands corner meet) and see what I think. Trouble is I really love the v6 but the appeal of a light car is there. 
 

will se what is on offer and what options are available / prices. Also colours!  Really tempted with a bright colour to accent the black bits but am I that bold??

I had an Exige V6. You'll miss the power of the Exige which is addictive, but for road use I love the Elise 250. The Exige (and Evora 400) were just too quick to fully utilise on the road, but the Elise can be driven harder without reaching insane speeds. The Elise also definitely feels smaller, lighter and more agile - perfect for a B road.

You will notice how nimble the Elise feels compared to the Exige, I had a 2013 Exige S before the Evora 400 and current Elise Cup ;) , IMHO and is a massive difference but you will miss the grunt of the V6, ask @Stubox :lol: 

The only answer I can think is to have both in the garage ;)

No can do, I have to make my choice - but what a choice to make!

Toxic Green, Fire Red, Liquid Yellow - it's a tough call.

Question is - where can I see the colours ?

Dealers usually have samples aswel. I did also check the picture thread first though. I think it's a big mistake they don't have a clear picture of every color on the Lotus website.

yes and no as online the colours are hugely affected by screen type, resolution etc. Then there is the lighting and camera for the image etc. Take these examples of fire red, could almost be different colours.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!
