Defected! Went to CO

Okay, even if you didn't go to CO, who here has changed there order color since the new press cars showed up?

I called Dimmitt, I am in the top 20, had my car on order for Saffron Yellow, saw the CO, asked to be changed. They said it was right on the cut of to change order specs, so I did it. I'm part of the COM. Anyone else make the change to another color yet due to these photos? Thy KG looked good too, but I don't have the you know whats to pull that one off.

I've been liking what I see of CO lately. I think it looks hot on the Exige. Still think I'm gonna stick w/ Ardent / Biscuit, though. I dunno.

Red/biscuit is hot too though! I love the Saffron, CO, and Ardent. I love the biscuit int. ever since I say the Racing Green with it. Love that! CO won't look good with that though.

CO is outstanding.. went w BRG and Biscuit. The CO Esprit I saw was way way cool .. must stop looking into the sun .. it is pulling me in .. must resist.

I think this is a repost.. but this Lambo looks a bit sporty in orange as well...

Oh man, you gotta copy off me. You should get Saffron. Now there is nobody currently in our area getting SY.

GabbaGabbaHey, nice cars in that link!

The COM color intrigues me. I would like to see the color on the Elise. If it looks good, I'll probably get that. I will not decide for sure unless I can see it in person. If I cannot see it at the time of order, I plan to stay with Ardent Red.

I think part of the reason Dave changed his mind was because CO wouldn't be as popular. I would stick with MB!

Didn't they make a Barracuda in that color; or was it the 71-72 240Z. I think KG is cool in an ugly 60's kind of way.

All the colors have their place. What we need is phase change colors - a swipe of the wand and you can have a different color each day

Yeah, I love the SY, but want a less common color on my car. You are correct sir.

I changed my order last week also to CO. I went from Green to orange so the car would be more visable and hopefuly safer. I think I started all this mess about changing orders!

Arnie poses next to a car and everyone acts as if the Playmate Of The Year did it, saying 'gimme,gimme,
gimme!' P.S. - As Bette Davis once said about being adored by the public, 'You
either got it...or you don't. It's as simple as that!'

If Arnie stood next to Krypton Green, people would be going over to that color. It's the same when the other Arnie poses with a
certain golf club......sales go up. 'Star Quality' people have that effect on the public. Didn't you ever hear about what they do on Madison Avenue?

You seem to hold Arnie in a worryingly high regard!

I'm afraid he could stand next to God and I'd probably miss it...
