KG was an extreme color for extreme individuals, people willing to make a personal statement (even moreso than just owning a lotus). Obviously Lotus is trying to appeal to a wider market base with this, given the rarity of the KG cars. I'm sure this namby-pamby color will see far more time in the paint booth.

April 1, 2007 was the first date of color mixing IG. June 1, 2007 was the first date of paint spraying IG. All for the 2008 model year, not before.









Yes, IG was initially an April Fool's Day joke. Someone just forgot to tell Pierce and he went with it...

Exclamation

You guys in this post sound like an expert, but NOT.

I just went to the dealer and saw the new 08 colour sample, the Isotope Green has the same tone as the KG except a bit brighter. To most people, they are the same, just different name.

To me that's look new and better than KG, but I won't say sh!t about any colour like some of you guys here, especially those current KG owners.

Hopeless

White still looks the best.

My WAG is that they probably changed an ingredient becuase it got too expensive, so they have to re-name it if it doesn't match up perfect... then marketing said... "HEY! We can feature it!... it's an ALL NEW color!"

You don't know how the Isotope look like and told my brother to get his eyes checked.

Now don't be gettin' all sentimental on us, n00b!

Isotope does look awful, thats not an opinion, its pretty much a fact . As for your "brother" being gay, that's not necessarily an insult either, that could also be a fact. You calling someone an idiot cannot be construed as anythign but a personal insult. hooray for maturity
