What is the rarest IS300 color or color combination? It seems that everyone either has SBM or Milenium Siver.... I'd say YELLOW, although I don't know many people with auburn red...

Yeah I saw a standard spec car in white with no options and the 16 inch wheels.... I don't know who would have bought it as it had fleet car written all over it...

Surprisingly, I've seen only three IS's in my area and they all have the 16" wheels. Yuk. Must not be enthusiasts and must not be on this board...

Cardinal Creek, you've only seen 3 IS300s since its introduction??? That surprises me with you being in southeastern PA around King of Prussia and Manheim (a lot of car enthusiast in that area not to mention an awesome auto auction...

I think the Auburn would be the most rare on this car.

I live in Orlando, Florida and I have only seen 4 IS300. Two Silver, Black and a yellow.

That surprises me, as my dealer was telling me they were selling 40 per month. Oh well.

I got 1500.00 of MSRP.

Saw my 1st yellow one on the road today. Seen a couple whites, one silver, one black and only one green (mine). No auburns yet....

The car's still fairly rare down here in South FLA......

EricK,

Actually I'm in Jersey right across the Delaware River from cardinal creek and I've only seen 1 in the south Jersey area. I've seen about 4 in the north Jersey area near my office in Piscataway. The only other one I've seen is a yellow one with silver tint driving on Wisconsin Ave in downtown Bethesda over the summer.

Other than TEG, who else has it?
I had to wait to get my silver/black cloth combo for almost three weeks. I am so glad that I got the cloth...I absolutely love it!!
My last 3 cars were all leather and I just got really sick of it.

Yeah I have yet to see what an Auburn red IS300 looks like and wonder whether it looks similar to the Cinnabar RED that dress the Lexus GS series....

Man, Eric, you never cease to amaze me with your knowledge of cars!

I know, it is surprising that I haven't seen more around here - and the fact that there are NO IS300.net member/owners in my area - except for mryuen and he's about 40 miles away - proves that there aren't many people around here with this car...Look at the MA post or the Chi post, even Hawaii! Poor me and mryuen


Maybe it's also because I don't hang out at movie theaters and shopping malls...Being the dad of two little ones crimps your socializing (agreed, Webmaster, TEG and ISFAN?).

Eric, why don't you hit I-95 in your TT and come up for a visit? We'll race

GTE, I worked one dealer against the other. It was tough because I was negotiating late July while the car was still scarce and sizzling...I bought from Wilkie Lexus, Ardmore PA, the biggest in the DC-PA-NJ corridor other than Prestige in Northern NJ.

Hope I can negotiate a good deal on a TRD S/C when they come out, too
