that isn't Lotus Isotope green. :no:

real one should look like this:
stack that up next to KG and it will look exactly the same. i guarantee it. Excellent description calling isotope a "washed out" KG, i couldnt' describe it better. KG was an extreme color for extreme individuals, people willing to make a personal statement (even moreso than just owning a lotus). Obviously Lotus is trying to appeal to a wider market base with this, given the rarity of the KG cars. I'm sure this namby-pamby color will see far more time in the paint booth.

KG has a bold and bright look and can be seen for a mile. IG is a washed out, sickly pale color.
Note his listed occupation... this guy should know:

Anyone have a side by side of the 2 colors? When did they start making isotope green?
April 1, 2007 was the first date of color mixing IG. June 1, 2007 was the first date of paint spraying IG. All for the 2008 model year, not before.









Yes, IG was initially an April Fool's Day joke. Someone just forgot to tell Pierce and he went with it...

You guys in this post sound like an expert, but NOT. rotfl

I just went to the dealer and saw the new 08 colour sample, the Isotope Green has the same tone as the KG except a bit brighter. To most people, they are the same, just different name.

To me that's look new and better than KG, but I won't say sh!t about any colour like some of you guys here, especially those current KG owners.

Hopeless :thwack:

White still looks the best. :D :nanner:

My WAG is that they probably changed an ingredient becuase it got too expensive, so they have to re-name it if it doesn't match up perfect... then marketing said... "HEY! We can feature it!... it's an ALL NEW color!" :wallbang:

Isotope does look awful, thats not an opinion, its pretty much a fact :D. As for your "brother" being gay, that's not necessarily an insult either, that could also be a fact. You calling someone an idiot cannot be construed as anythign but a personal insult. hooray for maturity
