Not sure which color i want now. I was sold on blue, but now i am thinking black with tinted out windows and some chrome 19's would be nice. Confusion ! I would get silver but i have a silver Lightning right now, so i need something a bit different. My r6 is also blue, so maybe i should get Black ..

Anyone have some pics they can post of there IS300's to help me?

Thanks

Sometimes i think there is too much contrast between the black paint and the clear tailights... just IMHO....

I'm going with the blue

Thats what i thought when i seen the first black one also. Tinted windows for seem reason seems to make it look much better, and the taillights don't stick out as much for some reason it seems. I don't really like the black right off the dealer floor, but with some chrome 19's and tint it looks nice. Anyone have some pics of a blue one with chrome rims and tint?

Thanks

I would just get blue if I were you coz black is the color that is pain in the ass to take care of... Well, blue it not that easy to take care of either, but a lot easier than black.

SBM baby. I personally think the altezza tail lights look bad on black cars.

Agreed... but now, if we were to somehow smoke the chrome inside the tailights.....and tint the windows.....

Nice car, i normally don't like wings but that one looks nice on your car. I will probably do 20% on the whole car and Ti35 on the windshield.

OK, the black is nice....but it ain't up to the BLUE!!!!!! And blue, in general comes in various shades...black is black. Do you really want to be the SAME as every other car out there? NAW!

OK, so get the black. That way MINE will be DIFFERENT!

I imagine blue is a bit easier to take care of than black, but it still shows dirt and swirl marks pretty easily. Most dark colors (blue, green, etc) are pretty hard to take care of also.
