considering this was one of the few colors that have never been on an elise, i think we were a little gutsy to order one without having seen pics of one.

However, after seeing the esprit, i'm sure i'll be happy. Nice and light (vibrant) in direct sun, and very awesome in the dark/shade as well.

that leather combination will be nice.

glad to be in the minority when it comes to this combination.

very pretty. If i were going to order a darker color it would def be NFB.

By the way, the creme interior on the Esprit really suits the NFB well. That is a hot combo on that car.

yup, a note - the beige (cream) of the esprit is not as dark as the biscuit as we'll get.

The biscuit is likely to be more like the combination i currently have on my mr2.

Checked out your site.

Nice MR2.

How's UH Law treating you?

I went the finance route at UH.

Looking forward to next football season. Co Coogs!

lol - law is well.... at least i can say it'll be over soon.

heck it's paying for 2/3 the elise!

UH is fine. I'm lucky that there's a night time law school here in houston. Better yet one that is in the top 5 in the nation for Patent Law.

as for sports - gotta watch the lady coogs!

As for the blue, yeah it definitely was a shot in the dark. I just heard that the cobalt blue was pretty close to nfb. As for the interior I actually went with black originally. I was fortunate enough to see the green elise with the biscuit interior at which point in time I promptly called my dealer to switch colors. Were there any other exterior colors you were interested in?

well, i do like that beige interior (although i agree with others that the espirt beige is better (lighter)).

i was thinking that green/beige long before i saw the pictures of the one at dimmitt in florida.

the other was storm/black.

honestly, this is a car where MOST people are going to have several colors that they can't quite commit 100% to...

by the way - that does look much darker than the NFB esprit above.

But then again, this is indoors....
