Take the color code to any auto body/paint supply place, and they should be able to mix it up for you in any style you want -- little bottle with a brush, spray can, or normal urethane requiring activator. :)

Most places will charge around $12-15 for the little touch-up bottle.

If you have a nonstandard color, they can scan the color and (usually) get a close match.

Your Lotus dealer carries a touch up pen (brush actually) for about $15. The red matches nicley - no experience with the other colors. This works well for repairing rock chips. Many good how-tos on the web. Basically use a toothpick to dab the paint into the chip divet making sure not to over fill. Let dry and repeat until divet is just proud. Sand with 2000 grit, hand finish with rubbing compound and you're done.
