I was driving through of all places today, lawndale and saw a brand new IS300, only thing is that it was a light baby blue/hint of purple metallic? Is this a new color for 2002 or a custom job?

Maybe it's a fixed up civic customed to look like an Altezza. I get fooled too when I don't look at it carefully. Seen a bunch at car shows like that.

No, no, no I am not your average meat popsicle folks. No BS, this paint job looked like it was factory painted. no plates, it did have some dealer advertisement sheet where the plates should be however I was too far away to read it. The best comparison I can give you is a blue/light purple metallic along the lines of Robocop's blue armor (remeber that movie?) It is not a civic and no not a SBM.

I'm gonna be off topic a little bit here guy - BUT what the hell is taking Lexus so long to release the '02 model(Acura, Ford, and many others cars already release their '02 model). I can not wait any longer !!! Damn it Lexus...:)

Yes, I did take a close look at the car. As I mentioned I saw it in the parking lot of a gym. I checked out the interior very carefully and nothings different. No Nav, no armrest, automatic.

Which leads me to believe it's a custom paint job 2001. It's from Jim Faulk Lexus Beverly Hills, and has some crazy chrome 19"s on it

TNGuyenis300---

you are sooooooooo right!!! i am desperately awaiting the '02 models to come out. i can't tell you how anxious i am for this car. sometimes i dream about it, and i just can't wait any more!!! the worst thing is, out of the 7 dealers i called, i got responses that ranged for release dates anywhere from mid aug. - late oct.! why doesn't lexus just set a date, atleast that way i would be more at ease.
