If you have the chance to own a Lotus Elise, here's a color tip before you buy that car. Today I saw an Elise in Anthracite. Poor Elise. It looked like a black & white photo in a color world, and not in the good black & white photo kind of way. It looked like a teenager in Greek widow garb. So unfortunate. So "Fuer Elise" , be one of the colors that makes this car so fun to look at. No Anthracite, no Black, not even a Dark Navy. You're not intimidating enough, nor should you be, to dress in austerity. Go for it, you have the right body, the attitude and stance to pull it off!! Solar Yellow. Krypton Green. Chrome Orange.
