Damn, that a ton o' color vacillation there.

Mighty fine.

Beauty Derek- I don't remember the third brake light being clear on the 111s.
Cool plate surround btw.

'Tech'! Is that a
back-rest cover (white w/Lotus insignia) shown on the driver's side? Saw the same thing on an Australian Elise but was never able to find out where to get them. Will look great on a Saffron Elise if available.

I suspect that is more likely one of those paper/plastic doilies that repair shops use so that the mechanic doesn't soil the seats.

In this cropped closeup, notice the creases in it?

I guess I should still bring a fresh pair of underwear and tell the dealership to leave that paper/plastic seat cover in there when I pick up my car because I'm sure to soil the seat with excitement.

I've had mine for 1 full day and have just under 500 miles on it. The car gets some unusual reactions from people! I was going down the Ocoee river today on my way back from Chattanooga and two kyakers who were walking on the side of the road collided and dropped all their equipment while trying to figure the car out. All is great with the car except I had to go buy some thinner shoes to drive it. The pedals are so close together!

Randy,
"The book" say 1.9 hours which is what I was billed for, but maybe took a half hour longer as it was the first one they'd done, he double checked everything. Incidentally, they had a storm the night before which apparently knocked out the network printer, I was there early (0730) so it hadn't been corrected. So they weren't able to print the data download, they just checked it , saw no problems, and called Lotus to verify it was OK not to have a hard copy for the records. I was impressed they went to all that trouble than documented it on the service record as to who they spoke with at Lotus that gave the OK. Lotus Atlanta continues to impress me.
