Anyone have a link to the real colors that will be imported? I have seen the colors being offered in the UK, but I also saw something a while back that showed only 3-4 colors coming to the US.

Anyone?

95% certain that there hasn't been an official announcement of colors coming to the US as yet.

Symbolic in Beverly Hills promises to e-mail those of us on their waiting list with them (the available colors) as soon as they receive word. I have no e-mail. ;)

I wonder what the chances are of us getting the exact colors we want.

Interesting also, I don't think Symbolic of La Jolla asked for, or has, my email.

Let us know when you find anything out.

P.S. Welcome to the forum.

Thanks

If memory serves me correctly, the reason there is some question as to what colors are coming to the US is based on the environmentally unfriendly ingredients in the UK paint. If you figure that the colors that came on Esprit have been EPA approved, we know that it is at least plausible that we would see these colors on the elise (plus a few more, I'd imagine): http://www.symbolicmotors.com/frames/images/Contemporary/Extras/Lotus_colors/lotus_cars.html

---------------------------

edit: Speaking of colors, I just posted this somewhere's else on the internet:
The approximate percentages of each color sold up to November 2001 were:

Aqua 1.4%
Lava Orange 1.5%
Racing Green 3.8%
Ruby Red 4.1%
Black 5.1%
Calypso Red 5.5%
Quartz 5.8%
Ice Blue 7.2%
Lightning Yellow 7.8%
Gun Metal 10.5%
Cobalt Blue 12.9%
Silver 15.8%
Laser Blue 17.8%
(from elises.co.uk)

Looks like my choice of Lava Orange is not very polpular:(
Maybe they will bring the Chrome Orange that was on the Espirit?

Well my next choice is Ice Blue. If that does not come here then Yellow it will be!

I want to make sure that all those SUVs out there see me. I believe in the passive safety that bright colors provide.....

colours (pardon my uk spelling!)

Lava Orange and Calypso Red are no longer offered.

Chrome Orange may well be available now, and Ardent Red has replaced Calypso.

Old English White has been added (dont do it folks - it's just NOT right).

Mine's aqua - I'm glad of the rarity because virtually everyone comments about how good it looks :)
