Sorry, folks, but can anyone defend
a gold package (at $400, no less) on
an IS 300? It should be outlawed. This
is supposed to be a sports sedan, not
a Pimpmobile. I thought gold packages
were reserved for the burgundy double-knit
pants, white shoe crowd (read Cadillac and
Lincoln Town Car). Sorry if I stepped on any
toes...just my expressing my not-so-humble
opinion.

Well I agree, the gold package wouldn't look right on the IS300. However, I do think the gold package looks ok on the SC400 and LS400 in the darker colors (black and Green especially)... I Don't have the gold package on my cinnabar GS400. I personally think it's gaudy.

I actually do like the gold package (although I DON'T like the price
) and I think it does look nice depending on what body color it goes with. Like I think it would look sweet on a white or even Spectra Blue IS. But I see your point how some people could perceive it as "pimp" or "gaudy".

Geez, I would just pity the owner who sports a Lexus emblem that colored in or puts a "Type R" emblem on. I really doubt it though since the IS is well above the class of all those kiddies driving around in their "modded" Civics.

Don't think that people won't snicker at you if you opt for the gold package just as someone would at a new Corvette or Z28 driver.

I dont have anything against gold package, i think it would look nice on a blue or white IS too as spectra said. Maybe black too. $400 is rediculas for it though.

Actually, I *have* seen that...it was a Lexus "L" with the space filled in red on a riced SC.
