Hey!!!!!!!!

I ordered saffron on March 1st from Silicon Valley and, though I love the Elise in many hues, haven't second guessed myself yet. The shots obviously are of an earlier variant but it looks pretty close to my perception of what I'll be getting.

So, thanks for the photos - especially since my name is Chuck!

The color in those photos is very close to what I have seen as Saffron, and not Lightning Yellow.

There are some very shady dealers in the Lotus business.

Hi guys

Sorry to confuse you all - here is the original photo:



I'd say the car looked pretty close to being inbetween the original and retouched photo.. so it's not so bright and not so dark..

Probably adds more confusion - but I had to let you guys know that yellow isn't real

Thanks, that's about how I'd expect SY to look on an overcast day.

Here's the "Transio, use us for all your photo retouching needs!" retouched version:

Upon further inspection, I have determined that this car is actually NOT SAFFRON YELLOW !!!!

It's Ardent Red !!!

Now THAT'S funny!

I can vouch for Transio's skills. he turned me into Julia Roberts - my hands have been having a great time ever since!

It's yellow... if it sucks I'll paint the f*ck*r.

This is not saffron yellow, the car is a standard 120bhp car, note the long type capote, this car was offered in 2001-2002 only in lightning yellow.



This is saffron yellow!

Wow. All that water from a garden hose. Wonder what crossing rain drains in the Elise will be like.

That's not Lightning, that's obviously Norfolk Mustard.

Has Ridgeman seen this yet?
