Should the inside of the nosecone be matt black or natural glassfibre colour? (or maybe body colour where the overspray has gone through the headlight cutouts !!!)

Black. You need to be able to ensure the number plate digits show up as a contrasting white or silver.

The sides and floor were black, but Lotus didn't paint the underside of the top surface - what would be the point?

OK thanks, looks like just the floor and sides around the rad were black on mine originally

Not sure on a S4, but my early plus 2 was bare fibre glass, I have since painted it gloss black as it’s easier to clean and shows off the number plate better.
Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine!
