Thats why I switched to Bordeaux Red, which was my 2nd choice. My original order, a yellow Elise, was a late Nov/early Dec delivery too.
Since ordering in January I had acquired a Lightning Yellow Evolution VIII (got a deal that was impossible to pass on) and decided 2 yellow cars was too many. Plus Neil told me there'd be a LOT of Saffrons in town, but only the 1 Bordeaux. He figured out a 4 way swap where I could get the Bordeaux, Trieu could change and get his yellow, and someone got my car. Not sure who but it might be the mystery guy your insurance agent mentioned.
I think Ace lives lin Oklahoma or thereabouts?
Anyways, I still love yellow and would have held out had I not already owned a yellow car, but seeing how many of them are in town makes me even happier with my BRP.
And just to reiterate, Autostrada is awesome!
'05 Lotus Elise (BRP, Touring, Hardtop going back on)
'03 EVolution VIII
'00 Porsche 996C2
'89 BMW M3 (for sale)
I took delivery on my Saffron Yellow on Thanksgiving (from the transport company, not the dealer). I have not had a chance to post anything yet since I have been sick as a dog. I just past 100 miles today and I love it. Getting in and out with the hardtop at 6' has its challenges but it fits like a glove once I get in. I can't wait to get through the 1000 miles so I can really have some fun.
