Damn it was all prepped and ready for pickup, the white looked sweet. Does the blue shine as well as the white or have any metallic in it? The blue was pretty dirty and sitting out side.

thanks

if you take really really good care of it, the dark color will shine better, look at few of the member's car (TurboIS's SBM). It does really reflect the shine. I have a Silver, and even polished, it doesn't look as shiny as the other dark colors...

I picked my SBM up from Meade Lexus and they waxed it and had it shining good. It still shines after two weeks of having it and driving 2k miles.

I have a white one too... and it usually looks cleaner than the other colors when it is dirty. (Just an observation.) But yeah, that blue is a unique color. Either way, you get to be one of the select people to take home an IS... just flip a coin or let yer girl decide on the color if you can't make up yer mind.

Silver doesn't shine as much as the other colors? You must be joking...

It's all in how you take care of your car. Keep in mind that TurboIS's SBM has 8 coats of wax, and a show spray on it with lights up the wazoo.

I keep my silver well, and it's the brightest car on campus all the time, regardless of whether it's dirty or clean.

Don't get me wrong. I love the SBM.
My top choices in no significant order are:

Spectra Blue Mica, Millenium Silver, Solar Yellow

dont get the blue. its the ugliest color out. the way it seems like a diff color when you look at it at diff angles. i hate the way it makes me smile every time i look at it. and i hate the deep blue tone to the sparkling blue it emits. so in closing, dont buy blue, or I'll send some of my "associates" after you.
seriously, no blue. that way i have a more exclusive color.

what the heck? umm. r u joking??
dont tell me u have a silver or white.. coz i think they are good colors, but they are just way too common on the road .. dont u think? well. if u like to be the same with everyone else, good, then white/silver is for u.
personally.. i like blue.. and not surprisingly.

i LOVE MY SBM!!!!!!

Agent-do you let your dog ride in the IS with you? I dont haul my baby around in the IS YET, but I do take him for rides in the GT. I think he feels special because when my fiance rides along, he rides shotgun, and my fiance rides in the back
