Finally, an updated exterior paint code listing

Finally, an updated exterior paint code listing-is01.gif Back in September 2004, IS300.NET/my.IS site founder Tony Schreiber started a thread in the Owner's Manual Sub-Forum of our Contents section titled Exterior Color Guide, which was essentially a listing of the exterior colo(u)rs available on the Lexus IS 300 in the United States, with the corresponding factory colo(u)r codes. It was a valiant first effort, but suffered from several shortcomings, such as minor colo(u)r name misspellings and one missing proper colo(u)r name. Most notably, the chart only contained information up to the 2003 model year.

It's redundant to say that this chart was crying out for an update. Fortunately, the ToyotaReference.com home page did the dirty work for us, as it contains some fascinating charts listing alphanumeric codes for chassis, engines and exterior paint colo(u)rs (no transmission codes, unfortunately), plus related links to useful materials, not just for both generations of Lexus IS models, but for virtually all Toyota products sold in the U.S.

These extremely valuable, informative and useful charts were brought to our attention by my.IS member Darren Seeman, in a General Discussion thread. As Darren's scionlife screen name broadly hints, he is the founder of the premier Scion website, ScionLife.com. Said charts were put together by Darren with an able assist by Club Lexus Editor and my.IS California and IS F Forums Moderator Flipside909. We felt that this information was too good to merely leave buried in a thread, so we have added it to the Owner's Manual Sub-Forum of our Contents section, where it can more easily be accessed by one and all.

Hey, Joaquin! This is one of my favorite threads of all time, haha. Or, at least, the only historic one I occasionally go back and try to find.
Any updates on the chart of 2nd gen IS's? (including IS C?)

Sure! Darren of ToyotaReference.com does a great job updating this. Just follow the link:
