Patience, my friend. I have a 2006 IS brochure, which I intend to scan as soon as things slow down a bit here at work and send you.
The 2006 Lexus brochures are my favorites. They're in a kind of "travelogue" format, and each brochure takes you through a different locale. The IS brochure is shot and takes you through Germany, the GS brochure is set in South Africa, the RX in New England, and so forth. They only used that format for the 2006 model year.
2005 was the last model year for the 1st-generation Lexus IS, and 2006 was the first model year for the 2nd-generation Lexus IS, so the brochures are totally different. The "elevator door" brochure was used for both the 2004 and 2005 model years. The 2002 and 2003 model year IS brochures, with their "skyscrapers-on-a-video-camera-viewfinder" cover, are another instance of shared covers over 2 model years.
BTW, going back to the '06 brochure, it led me to write one of my favorite, yet most agonizingly research-intensive and most underappreciated (except by site founder Tony, who called it a tour de force
