Folks all I can say is that the Solar Yellow IS attracts bugs! yes you heard me BUGS! I dont know if it is the weather or what I wish I had a cam handy. I will get some pics and show you what I mean it's quite comical they where all over the IS and simply ignoring other parked cars I couldnt even wash my car in peace. They kept buzzing and basking on the IS. They look like ants with wings I have never experienced this before with any other car. Does anyone down in southern areas experience this that owns a yellow IS???

Its true. And its even worse if you use a "fragrant" car shampoo (although I'm not saying it smells particularly flowery).

Congratulations Guys! You have just learned why yellow is such a common color in nature, ..especially common in flowers. Through the eyes of a bug, yellow is very attractive. This helps flowers attract bugs to help it pollinate or to be pollinated. Pretty cool, huh?

Just think of it this way ...your solar yellow IS is so attractive, it even attracts mother nature. You gotta love that!

I know what you mean. When I go back home to my parents house in Michigan everyone looks at my car because they haven't seen one before. Kinda funny I think.

I figure the yellow and that new red are gonna attract the bugs...big time. They LOVE those bright primary colors.

Funny that a similar thread recently showed up on S2000online.com Lots of guys with Spa yellow S2K's are having a hard time with the bugs. It is especially annoying for us (since we have the tops down).

Love the yellow IS. Can't wait to see a manual transmission.

That is a typical problem with Yellow cars. It's something you probably should have known though. Damn those dealers, they never tell ya $hit. But, I already knew what to expect and I would never get rid of my Yellow!
