Blue Stone and Indigo Ink are two of the new colours for 2004. I think there are a few more as well. These are supposed to be replacing Intensa Blue pearl.

I know Indigo Ink is available on the SC430, heres a pic:


I wonder if it'll be any good on the IS300.

Looks like Lexus is trying to aim at older people with these new colours and get away from those vibrant colours of previous years that appealed to younger people.

First Spectra Blue Mica was taken away (the best colour evar IMO) and now Intensa Blue and Solar Yellow are gone as well.

I read in the sportX forum from someone who purports to have preordered a 2004 SportX that Blue Onyx Pearl would be one of the new colors. I guess it is wait and see. I wouldn't be surprised if the yellow was deep sixed though.

I'd really be interested to find out where people have heard this from. This is the second post regarding this, so I'm starting to wonder if it's gone beyond just random heresay.

I feel stupid too, cause I bugged the sales guy that I ordered my IS with. He hadn't heard anything, and was going to look into it but never got back to me. Felt bad making him chase after a rumor. :-?

Blue Onyx Pearl is the shade of dark blue offered on the LS430. It looks like black with just a hint of blue. It's close enough to the Indigo Ink Pearl that it would make no sense for the IS to offer them both. Indigo Ink is nicer than Blue Onyx, and I suspect that IIP will be what finally becomes available in the IS for 2004.

The factory change-over to the new model year has occured, so if your salesman acts dumb about new color choices then he is probably trying to clear out the 2003 leftovers.
