the color of the car is darker than what you have there. I don't think it would look right IMHO. I think you'd like the blue leather. I've seen that in person and kicks ass. It's more like navy blue. biobaggie's elise is configured that way if you want his opinion.

why?

happen to live around NJ and wanna drive?:p

i agree the red is kinda ugly, it just intruiged me cause i saw it in another car(not elise) and wondered what it would look like.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised when you see one in person. It is darker than 98% of the pics out there. For example, the shifter housing that you colored will be much darker in comparison. Everytime I see it I forget from the previous time how dark it is. I think it's hard to get a good picture of it because the clearcoat or something allows the paint to have this "aura" or glow about it under sunlight. It's vibrant I guess you could say. The closest color I'd say that I've seen was on a C5 Corvette. As my luck would have it, the only day that I forgot to take my camera with me daily I saw this Vette and it was close. The color is Nassau Blue it seems. Even in these Vette pics the color is light.

shay2nak,

I got my LB car on Wednesday and parked at work next to a vette in this colorn Thursday. You are right on the money - these colors are extremely close. I am jetlagged in Japan now so I can't remember which one was barely darker.

Someone at your work has one of those! Seems like a rare color for Vettes also. I didn't know you got your car already! Congratulations! Did you post pics of it earlier? I think LB is a little bit darker.

My friends is not a Z06 but it is this color. When I get back I will verify the name of his color.

I haven't had a chance to post pics. Took a couple on Saturday but they were not particularly good. If the weather cooperates when I return to CT I will try to get some good pics. I love this color. Ordered without ever seeing one, but I am glad I did (I try not to think of the $1200 upcharge!)
