The pictures that appear with the article are the same pictures that appear in the brochure, and I deliberately placed each picture next to the page it appears on in the actual brochure.

Yeah, but I figured there was more to the brochure than just the pics. I'll read the article in a few minutes, that will probably answer my questions anyway!

Gilky115: Talk to a bodyshop, they will be able to order or mix the paint for you. At the very least they will point you in the direction of the nearest paint shop -- although you usually have to have a wholesale account to buy from those.

Just got word that all 2008 colors will carry over to 2009 for both the IS and IS-F.

Wow! I can't believe the mixed signals that Lexus is sending out. The PDF Dealer Letter linked from this post:
https://my.is/forums/5529425-post1.html
clearly states that "two new exterior colors will be adopted (Amber Pearl replaces Golden Almond Metallic and Truffle Mica replaces Desert Sage Metallic)", yet the Lexus USA website indeed shows the same colors for 2009 as for 2008.

Time to do some investigating, I guess.

I just noticed a disclaimer footnote that reads "[3]2008 model and colors shown" on the Lexus USA website when, from the Lexus IS page:
http://www.lexus.com/models/IS/?s_oc...S_Display_Info
you click on the PHOTO GALLERY link at the top of the left column sidebar, then click on the "Colors" link (second from the left in the horizontal bar above the images).

Good info, they must be introducing the colors late or something, not sure. I will update my site and the chart.

Does anyone have the paint code for the stock graphite wheels that came on Black Onyx IS300s? I have some SSR GT1 wheels I am getting repaired and painted and want to know what the paint code of my stock wheels are to get the SSRs painted the same color as stock. Thanks

2010 has no color changes, they are all the same as 2009.
