Can someone tell me the difference between Solar Yellow vs Saffron Yellow?

Solar yellow is a little metallic, so has a little more "glint" to it, from what I recall.

Saffron Yellow was only available in 2005 and on 2006 Sport Elises. And it is now available on the 2009 "Purist" Elise.

Gotcha. So it is safe to assume the Solar Yellow is not a bad color choice?

Solar Yellow is Saffron Yellow with metal flake. The pigment is the same.

Thanks for pointing out what the thread I linkified said Demonized. :p

And yes comptalk, Solar is fine. Both are great, but as you asked, I've seen solar, and they look great.

Now before some more discussion that's completely random, might as well close the thread, seeing as how the question was answered. :p

But...in your 4 posts to the question at hand, you never once answered the guy, only giving an a-holey "I'm smug...use the search...I''m super smart... I am a champion of the common man...smug" type unhelpful, bandwidth wasting response. And then you call for the end of he thread like you have authoritah? :shrug: lawl. You sir, bugged me. :thwack:

I am a Saffron owner and see a deeper hue of orange present in SY. Solar is a slightly lighter yellow to my eyes - plus with sparkles. Opinion: I'm not a fan of metal flake too often, unless it's slight and done right. Looks cheap IMHO. Solar is fairly slight and I think the color works.

I have a Solar Yellow, and you have to look pretty close to see the metal flake. It is very subtle.

Safron Yellow is the fastest but solar yellow is pretty fast as well. Remeber to join the yellow Lotus Forces on Facebook if you have an account.

Yellow will always triumph because other colors are dumb

1) I'm not a bully or a smug jerk, I'm a comical person making a joke.
2) I pointed out the thread that explained it to him, then answered his "Is it safe to choose that color" question, so essentially I did.

I don't want to start an argument, but really, I was just joking. The thread doesn't need to be closed, I'm just reading too much dickedup I guess...:thwack:
So essentially it's fear of Dickedup coming and ruining a thread, because if I hear the word buzzbomb or muchacho once, you'd agree with me. I don't have authority, it's stupid of you to think that, but thanks for complimenting my arrogance.

This is what happens when you let school kids run amuck on an adult forum. Nice tap dancing, Sonny Jim.:rolleyes:

I have onwed both Solar and Saffron. Saffron is definitely lighter, although all Lotus yellows are dark by comparison to other cars. Solar is almost bordering on orange, it's that dark. But when the light hits it just right, magic happens.

+1. That is exactly how they seem to my eyes as well.

I agree with Demonized here
If you like the color, get one in that color.
but to answer you a little more directly there does not appear to be anything disturbing or wretched about SY. It actually looks much better in person, IMO, than it does in pictures (which I find with all of the Lotus colors that I have seen).

Keeping it real and keeping it simple muchacho!

So which do you prefer?
Just need to match this color here and you're be bang on. -eek-



This is the hidden optional Lotus colour... Peenemünde Gelb.
