I am the original owner of my 2005 Elise, bought at Criswell in June of that year. When I bought it, the sales dude told me it was Magnetic Blue. Sounded reasonable, since it is blue. However, over the years, when I see other pictures of an Elise, it appears to look more like Laser Blue. My sense of color is not the greatest, so my daughter and I sat down this weekend and reviewed the color chart with the car. She says it is closer to Laser Blue than Magnetic.
I searched around the house, but can no longer find the window sticker, it is hiding somewhere... So, I go out and actually look at the paint code, and surprise, it says B86, which is listed as British Racing Green. The car has NOT been repainted, I have enough chips off the front to prove that.
I also don't remember paying a premium for the Lifestyle paint, but who can remember that from 9 years ago...
So, what color is my Elise?
