So after seeing my choice of Hethel Yellow today,alongside the magma red and the nimbus silver,I felt disappointed in my decision.
As a launch day deposit holder I was locked in early on colour choice without seeing the different colours on the cars,I knew the risk, I took it,I wanted it early.

When I was told today my July delivery would now be September, I asked if I changed my colour if it was going tk be delayed again,without a hesitation I was told LATE 2023-again this was CS desk,no remorse.

Clearly I told them to leave it.....

Yellow looks amazing 💛 mate don't worry.
Obviously not as good as Nimbus mind 😉😇
In all seriousness be nice to know why something like that would cause such a MASSIVE delay. Surely there isn't a paint shortage, or is there.....?

How can a colour change result in a 15 month delay there just making it up so no one can change anything

Complete nonsense, we have been treated poorly

Many of us were promised there would be a third deposit and the final spec could be locked in then. Then they breached that agreement

I want privacy glass removed without it affecting my build slot and I find it impossible to believe that can’t be achieved when there’s a 2 month further delay

I’ve contacted customer service to push this through and I won’t be taking no for an answer

If there’s truth in Harry changing from sports suspension to tour and not being delayed they have to treat all customers the same - also people have managed to change things without delay correct ?

Having just looked at the new photos of privacy glass that have appeared, It looks a lot better than the other photographs I’ve seen today

My worry is that it’s so dark you can’t see in, and you can’t see out. These new photos make it look not so bad but I’ll be interested to hear what customer service come back with

I wanted to change from Magma to Nimbus and was told by my dealership a flat out NO shortly after confirming my spec. 😔

That is ridiculous that they are not willing to accommodate such a minor change

Has anyone else been given a link from customer services that enables you to change spec and save? I got one a few weeks ago, no commentary on delay to my delivery date but will ask!

Nimbus Grey for a Magma V6 manual anyone Swapsey ?? …. ☺️ I can’t take another years delay by changing my
colour on a locked 🔒 in spec.
As we’re all valued customers that Lotus would not want to disappoint, so I’m sure they would be as kind to just swap the order names over and jobs a good un 👍

@Lots_Of_Trouble, that yellow is absolutely stunning — I think you’ve made a good choice.

I’ve gone Magma, but have had so much consternation about it since seeing the sample disks. The latest round of photos make me feel better though. Are you saying the Magma looked good in the flesh?

No photo can do it justice,and photos do not capture the true colour.
Magma is stunning.
