I say silver with black interior.. it just seems a little sportier to me.. although I've never been a fan of like ivory/tan/beige interiors to begin with.. but if you can only get LSD with Ivory luxury package (which I believe is the case here in California).. then I'd have to say ivory interior..
Go with black leather. No question. Silver with the ivory interior just doesn't look right to me. Besides, I've had cars with light colored interiors before and they are more difficult to keep clean than black.
Ivory looks fine with black, SBM, IJM and white, but if you choose silver or yellow, you gotta have the black interior (with yellow, of course, you don't have a choice).

Well, my LS400 is silver with black interior, and I really like that color combination. The interior doesnt get very dirty, you have to be careful of shoe scuffs. Its also not that hot in the summer, I was surprised. Get the black, silver and cream looks odd.
I think of the Trac control more as a safety feature and the LSD as a performance feature.. thats how I see it.. but of course, I can't speak from personal experience because I've never had a car with traction control nor have I had a car with a viscous LSD..
FYI - the IS300 has an optional "Torsen" (tm) LSD, not a viscous unit... ]

Ivory with silver really isn't that bad. I used to be really set on getting a silver with black interior, but I wanted the LSD. I ended up calling a bunch of dealers out of state and was planning to have it trucked here, but I caved in when my local dealer called me up and said there was a silver/ivory with LSD that just arrived.
I've gotten rather used to the ivory interior. It keeps the car nice and cool on sunny days and doesn't really get dirty that easily. It also makes the car look a little more luxurious.
