New Owner in Racing Green

Pulled the trigger today... test drove many but chose the road less traveled.

I gotta say, the green grabbed my heart strings for some reason.

Honestly, the green with yellow calipers is what attracted me to the car. I would have waited longer to shop for a manual, but I was on the fence for that too.
I too am in the camp of "I don't usually, if ever, like green", but this really works.

Only flaw I discovered since buying the car if the passenger door panel is loose and pulls away an inch at the top?
Should I remove the panel and reinstall or just let them deal with it? Also, one tire pressure sensor out.

All warranty work should be done by the dealer. You mess with it and it's yours, fixed or not.

Baker is technically Victory Lotus.

They plan to build an Alfa Romeo and Lotus Dealership next to the airport allegedly...

These "activities" don't involve me throwing keys in a bowl at a party or wearing a mask do they?

Local Lotus club?

Yeah, local Lotus club! PM sent.

FWIW, Victory was planning to build a new facility for the past 3 - 4 years.
