2) or a Kia Soul. This one is trickier, because Kia also offers a GT model, so drivers will need to get within 2-3 feet of your rear bumper in order to recognize other differences. Of course, rest easy knowing that your Lotus will stop faster than 99.9% of the other vehicles you're likely to encounter on the road. Including the one behind you.

Everything borrows from everything. Good artists borrow, great artists steal... Ultimately what looks good on one Evora, may look poor on another based on color, front/rear end style, lighting, etc... Also the light in the roof liner from our cars is off of a chevy truck.

What I don't like is that you cant get it from factory with that look. Especially when you spend ~$100K. Then you have to spend another $5-10 depending on what bits you get to have a 430 look which is not factory.

I'm not knocking on any aftermarket products at all. I love aftermarket stuff, I'm just saying OEM is OEM...

Total Red (as in the French Oil company Total) striping was common in 2011 / 2012 to match the F1 colors that Lotus was a marketing partner with.

Pin striping is a risky proposition. Very fine line between looking good and looking ricey. And more often than not, it ends up looking ricey.

I've been pointing out fake diffusers on cars to my wife - they're everywhere, generally on vehicles without a shred of bodywork-induced downforce. Instead of bringing the rear bumper cover across in a smooth sweep, they now cast a small, vaguely diffuser-like indent into it. No doubt somebody somewhere thought it made the car look faster/better.

The door edge molding on my '05 Elise diffuser is dinged in one spot. I've been debating which color to go back with. I'm thinking black as it's a yellow car with a silver diffuser.
