do all the 260's come with the godawful paint job that looks like a bad tribal tattoo from the mid 90's?

Kind of - they can be ordered without. Some of them (the side, lower front and rear mustache) are decals and can be removed - so are the 260 logos. Problem is, if you don't have these not applied from the factory, you will have to deal with removing the star shield to get the front and rear's off.

I have been fairly outspoken about how I personally don't like them - but since my car is Chrome Orange and about as out there as you can be - the extra stripes aren't going to make me blend in any better if they aren't there. I don't feel like going through the hassle with the star shield either.

just read it, looks like they incorrectly reference the roof scoop.

Sorry for asking, is it justifyable to pay 80k for an exige when you can get a Nissan GTR for the same amount?

It really depends on what you're wanting from the car, as the GTR can give you things the 260 cannot, and vice-versa.

Starshield is installed at the dealer not at the factory and at least one dealer has said they've ordered a spare set of stripes so that they can deliver the car with or without :)

Who is Hans and why did he leave his seats in the car?
Absolutely rotfl

must have paid Lotus to get such a big ugly tag on those seat - I hope it was a lot :(

Yes, I am kidding. I think the graphics including the seats are way over the top. Although I do like the seats themselves.

When did they take the turn signals or whatever they were off the front wheel wells?
