Sup folks.. I received word that the lexus dealers in Houston got the 06 Pre-Production IS' in today (friday). Supposedly 2 of them are in town.. one was being shown at westside/northside (glacier frost i-s), and then another being shown at sterlingmccall/clearlake (silver is250 awd). Although regular customers weren't allowed to see the car, I still managed to convince certain employees to show me the car and even take a few pics (which I'll post later). All I can say is that this car looks much better in person, and the interior quality (especially the leather) is the best I've seen on any lexus to date. Even the headroom is better than what is in the new GS. But guess what, the preview 06's are leaving by tonight, so sit tight til october!
