Well ppl have said they are going to redesign it but I dont know for sure yet. And also CONGRATS on the IS. Welcome to the club. A hint since you new in here, Always do a search first to try and find what you are looking for. Also stop by our other site at www.seloc.net. We have a lot of ppl that will help you out or answer questions. And I like the black on black.

Welcome to the board man! People always talking about next year model is gonna be a different bodystyle I think it's bs until next years model come out. Don't believe what people say. Black on black is a good common choice I like it. Here's another site you should attend http://www.tunedparts.com/forum/index.php Check it out people on there are very helpful.

welcome aboard! there is speculation, but nothing for sure, other than it has a good chance of being a v6 as opposed to an i6 that we currently have.

black is a good choice, but takes a lot of effort and care to keep it looking good. any dark color is more prone to swirl marks.

black would look good.
but be prepared to wash it like every two weeks
and during summer, the interior would be extremely hot.
enjoy

No firm date has been given for the IS redesign. Trust me, I'm always on the lookout for the latest car news. We'll post it as soon as we hear about it.

Hey Henry!

Yep, ^^ he is right. Black is hott, but I do have to wash my car about every other day. Then again, I have my own detail shop where I work so its no biggie for me. 8) It doesn't bother me too much in the summer... especially if you get the Alcantra/Ecsaine interior.

Welcome to the .NET!!!
