2001's are geting armrest, body colored tail lights, lumbar seats, and memory on driver side power seat. I also think they're changing the front grille.

The 5 speed
and the GPS/NAV system are confirmed.

All those other things are rumors (as far as I am concerned).

I got some confirmation that body colored tail-lights will be coming eventually, but not necessarily next year.

No that's not them. There talking about the inner part (chrome area) is painted the body color of the car. The smoked ones are already available.

I know that in Europe, the IS200 is definitely replacing the front grilles to the current ones used on the IS300. Are you sure they're changing the current front grille on the IS300????

What type of NAV system are they using in the '02? What I mean is will it fit the '01 in the lint collector (Altezza Style)?

I think the new DVD NAV system will be touch screen, and DVD-ROM based (and can probably play DVD movies when the car is in Park). Perhaps similar to the new system on the LX470.

I have no idea if it will go in that spot, or if the dash will be redesigned. I also doubt any dealer will be willing to try to retrofit one to a 2001 model IS300....

The IS200's grille is already the same as the IS300's.

I think the rumor was that the Altezza in Japan will get the change in grilles.
