Nimbus grey, it is not really grey more like beige or crayon. Need to see a real colour swatch to be 100 percent sure.

Now some of you have seen the swatches and the mockups on here has your colour decision changed?

I know I keep swaying, was originally definite on yellow, but if the red really looks like the mockups rather than it does on the configurator, then i am confused now.

If your thoughts have changed then please update your vote so we can see what people are considering....

I’m sticking with Hethel Yellow but after seeing the show car again am probably switching interior from black leather to black alcantara with yellow stitching. Sticking with black gloss wheels, full black pack and yellow calipers.

That was exactly what I had initially planned to go for, my current car (Audi TTS) has alcantara and I really like it. I had discounted the red completely as the configurator just didn't catch me, but seeing the swatches and mock ups you posted I really am now torn. We really need to see larger examples of each colour rather than just swatches.

How well does Alacantra fabric retain its appearance? Does it crush and turn shiny with use or keep its matt finish?

I have had the TTS four years now and it still looks fine, not faded or shiny, still looks as good as new - so hopefully will be same in the Emira
 
I was leaning towards nimbus grey but after seeing the samples. I'm heavily thinking Magma red.

Great - thanks for this info. Think I will go with black alacantra with yellow stitching - unless the cabin is too dark with this and the standard black headliner.
 
Still need to see the colours in real life. Think yellow is now off the list not being a metallic. If I look at Evoras in this colour I think you lose some of the detail of curves due to solid colour.

Red was originally off the list based on configurator, but photos in last few days have me intrigued.

Loved the look of Nimbus Grey on configurator but concerned re photo samples.

Blue may be the safe bet .

Not easy this picking a colour lol.

Loved the red leather in my 400 and seeing as you spend majority of your time inside the car, feel this is just as important as the exterior colour.

@TomE did you get a sense or any info that the yellow calipers match Hethel yellow or is there a discrepancy? I’m same config except blackpack, but wondered on brakes. I know badge is gonna be a different yellow but don’t mind. I think red calipers would be fun against hethel too but prefer all yellow.
 
It’s not identical, Hethel is more mustard tone

To further add to your colour matching dilemmas, the yellow stitching on the interior option isn’t quite the same yellow as the paint or the callipers. But that’s less obvious.

Now that everyone is starting to make decisions and confirm orders please place (or update) your vote so we can see what colours people are choosing....
 
Shadow grey not too popular - I’m the only person who’s indicated they’re going for it so far. And I’m only picking it because it’s the best base for a custom wrap😂
 
Interesting how even the distribution of votes is between the colours. So far disproves my theory that blue would be by far the most popular as the colour everyone got to see on the UK roadshow car.
 
So what colors are we not seeing for FE that will likely be coming for non FE?
Orange, White, Off white, Black, Lime Green?
