Don't buy a car as an investment. It rarely works out. So, screw resale value, unless you plan on flipping it or selling it. If you plan on keeping it until it or you dies then who cares?
If you want to repaint your brand new car, have the money, have someone you trust to do it to your liking, have nothing else better to do with your money, do it.
The answer is always wariness of quality work. If you document it and pay up for the right shops....
If you pay enough, maybe Lotus will do it for you one off? There are certainly people who repaint to their own color choice. If you plan to own it a while, I say, do you and enjoy!
