Hey guys I am planning to make a color change on my S. I currently have the titanium silver but looking to go with a white. What color is more wanted? Any suggestions in color?

Are you painting or wrapping? I personally prefer white. I have an aspen white Exige that will need a respray in the next year or two. I have so many stone chips

Perhaps you meant Storm Titanium?

I've thought about the Volcano Orange, as my GT-R is white, but I'm also considering the McLaren 650S (in the same color) so I don't really want them the same color. I'm not even a loud color car person, but I do like the Volcano Orange (although it's pricey). Decisions, decisions.

Despite my Exige S being the very loud Isotope Green (which I love... it's for safety... ;)), the color that seems to be very desirable is Persian Blue (and would have gone over better with my wife). Good luck with your repaint - hope you'll share the experience with us.

Cheers,
Bryan

Just clarifying the color. I have a Storm Titanium Exige S and I've had an alcohol glitch or two myself.

Staying healthy and safe, but unfortunately stuck overseas for the next few months. “Nigel” is resting on jack stands waiting for me to get home...

Hope you’re good as well!

Cheers,

Are you repainting for you, or for the future sale of the car?
If it's for you, go with white. It is a desirable color (more so than silver, I'd think) and it looks great.
If you are repainting strictly for future sale, go with isotope/krypton green or one of the various shades of orange. The loud colors always win.
I'm boring all my cars are black....except the wife's trackhawk, that's white and it's a great color too.

@Tonyesc To be honest with you, leave the original color. It will retain the value of the car for the future.

Well I purchased the 07 lotus exige wrecked (with body damage) back it January I’m currently working on it and hopefully get it back on the street soon. My plans for it are to get head turners out on the street as well enjoy it for few months or couple year and eventually sell it.

Since it was wrecked it hold a salvage title now so it already devalued. And also who knows how much I would get for it once it’s done.

2 things:
  1. Your Exige looks beautiful!
  2. To the OP's question, I feel like with any sports / exotic car, loud, unique colours always get snapped up like that, and it's the silver / white / black car ads will sit for months. But maybe I just get that impression because there's more total cars in the latter colour?
