In my opinion, the first & last are only "more desirable" if they remain in factory spec.

"More desirable" in this case means being so for "a collector" who won't use the thing anyway. Personally, I couldn't care less about build number, I'm much more interested in the spec/condition, as my car is for driving, not polishing

Yep Pesky, I'm of the same opinion. Mine's definately going to get a good thrashing this year.

However I'd still like to know a tiny bit more about mine.

True, but the last one's red (ewww), and seems to have been doodled on by some random people who were cheekily passed off as the Motorsport lot ; all of which effectively renders it worthless, thus making this whole "mine�s older than yours" thing pretty damn important .

Red is the in colour for 2008 just ask Sean seriously though it looks much better in real life than on the photos

totally agree and only really applicable to a regular linear production line. the lotus line was more akin to batch production, i think csrs could "overtake" on the production line and even be parked up in areas if a particular part was missing or if there were paint finish issues.

That's just 'cause Sean didn�t listen, I mean even Aston realized that baby blue was the way to go
