The write-up wasn't mine, but Ryan's (Flipside909), the co-editor for Kaizen Factor.

I've written other stuff in there, though.

My thoughts exactly, although Ryan (Flipside909) says it's a pretty hard to photograph exterior color.

the exterior color I could grow to love, but the interior just doesn't do it for me.

Alcantra is too cheap for the $300k+ car. Way too cheap. If my 2006 Lancer Evoluation had alcantra, this car should definitely not have it. I just sat in 2009 Gallardo with a Gucci leather stitched interior, not that more of what i'm talking about that but car still doesn't cost as much as this thing.

Gucci leather? Quite the argument you got going there.

A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.

Interior looks fucking whack... needs details and lines to break it up... especially the seat.

While yellow isn't a color I'd have as the first choice for the outside of a sports car, I admit it doesn't look bad on the LFA. The interior, well...a two-tone treatment like gbb357 suggested would be nice.

1. 2001 Lexus IS300: 100% bone stock for now, daily driven.
2. 2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V: personal project, BPU, 15.68 @ 87.44 mph, not done yet.

For the amount of money this thing costs... you can't have an interior like this. They need to add patterns... contrast stitching... maybe even Lexus Logo embroidered in the seats.

I guess its not just me. Interior looks like hell. Luckily, we aren't stuck blaming Lexus, alone. We can also blame whoever "customized" the car.

Some say he roams around the woods at night foraging for wolves.

That is a pretty bad combo for that car. Kind of a shame to think they wasted one of 500 to make it that color.

Waiting for Fresh Green with a black and white interior. Hopefully someone on the LFA list has taste.
