Interesting! Almost no orders for Aubergine and Aztek Bronze over here. Aubergine seems like a Hot Wheel color to me, but perhaps in the flesh it is much better looking?

very difficult to know how you are seeing the colour when everybody's monitors are gonna be different unless calibrated...

but on my screen this is pretty close. it is a stunning colour - especially when it catches some sun-rays!

it'd almost tempt me from my vx!

I think Aubergine is a fantastic colour. The only problem is, there's a few colours that are even more so !

Bronze is my least favorite. It just doesn't seem like a good colour for any vehicle ..

Wow, I never really considered the Aubergine but those pictures look fantastic...didn't think color choice would be so tough. Kinda wish that Lotus didn't offer so many colors to choose from!

I didn think I wanted Aubergine at all. Now I have it on my short list. I am still worried it will look too girly on the Elise. Perhaps the diffuser, wing, roof scoop and black wheels on the Exige help overcome the color? It kind of remids me of that eggplant color on the old 911's.

How do you think the color looks on the plain Elise with the standard silver wheels we are getting?

lol ste - eggplant is what we call an aubergine.

not at all girlie imo and certainly nothing to 'overcome' - looks stunning... i have more, less abstract pics if you want to look, lemme know...

last one. my camera is set to counter the cool light of an english cloudy day - but it kinda lifted and brightened leaving my shots a bit on the warm side, which i don't mind...

in this one i've tried to balance the colour so it's as neutral as possible - could be miles out on anybody elses monitor, but hey, at least i tried, eh?

see the colour in real life and see it in the sunshine.
