I am in a quandry about the interior color I should get. I could use some input from folks who have experienced them. I would be interested in other perspectives, pros and cons I might have missed, ease of cleaning, etc.

My two choices are black or biscuit, with a Bordeaux Red exterior. I live in sunny San Diego, which does factor in a bit.

1) Black:
Pros: Dirt shows less, classic sports car interior color, not the same color scheme as my wife's minivan
Neutral point: same color as dash and other interior bits
Cons: Hot in summer, makes the small dark interior (when the top is on) feel even darker and smaller (cave like)

2) Tan:
Pros: Cooler in summer, makes small interior brighter (and hence seem a bit larger in visual perception, as any interior decorator can tell you)
Cons: Same color scheme (red exterior, tan interior) as my wife's minivan (my 14 your daughter is bent out of shape on that one), shows dirt more than black.

My opinion the tan will reflect heat better and also looks good against a contrasting darker color, keeping in mind that the carpet is black in any event.

I have black in mine and really like it. Have tan in my loaner and kind of like that too !!
:huh:
I think ultimately it has to be the black, as it it just seems a bit more simple, and less luxurious which to me is the perfect fit for the Lotus

The black will make you sweat more, losing those vital few pounds !!! Must be good for at least a couple of bhp !!!
