Got the car!  woop woop!

 

Quite a lot of paint defects (pinhole marks + dust contaminations), but dealer and I have been in contact with the factory and all will be repaired (polished + spot repair?)

 

Nevertheless, massive fun even whilst running in :police:

 

I get a lots of compliments on the colour, really like the way it goes from real bright in sunlight to almost black when the sun starts to set.

 

Aircon and air recirc lights (and heated seat lights) are, indeed, completely useless!!

 

Just 3 pics for the moment:

Next up: exhaust work (thanks pgn340r)

That looks fantastic! I really like the colour in fading light.

 

I found a polarising filter really helps bring out a rich colour on mine - perhaps worth a try, if you have one?

Do you have some sunglasses with polarised lenses? If so, you can use your phone camera and shoot through the lens. Even you have "normal" sunglasses, you can find they help the picture, or certainly give it a different feel. Worth experimenting, and a good excuse to take more pictures - you need to let the car cool down every so often ;)

Awesome car, you must be very happy. Poor paint shouldn't happen on any new car but it does. I buy cars for a living and we just had a car delivered with a dent and another with 2 panels that are different shade of silver. So it happens even with the big manufacturers. I'm sure Lotus will put it right.

Lovely looking car! I agree with everyone else. Great colour! :thumbsup:

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
