Is the spectra Blue that is on the IS the same blue they use on the GS? Or Is the IS Blue darker?

both the GS and the IS use the same spectra blue, but IMO i think the GS blue looks a little lighter. i didn't really like the blue on the GS so i didn't get my IS in blue, but i like the blue on the IS a lot better than it on the GS. oh well....guess i should have waited to see the blue color before i bought my black one. but i still like the black!

same color, reason it looks good on the IS and not the GS is because the IS is smaller and not too much, the GS is longer and bigger so when you see it, the light hits it so many different ways its just not nice (that and i think its lighter too)...
i didnt like the spectra blue GS but i love my spectra blue IS

The same color (Spectra Blue Mica) is used on the US-market new generation Celica. The first Celica I test drove was that color, in fact. It does look good on smaller cars, for the reasons stated above. When I get my IS, it'll be in that color.

My Celica (GT-S, woo) is black, and it shows water marks / scratches too easily.

ya that's what i thought. the spectra blue on the GS is so ugly! but on the IS300 IT'S SO GORGEOUS. that's why mine is coming in blue.
