It's too flashy. Not everyone likes it. And yes, you do get pulled over for that.

Wus up Vlad_a? Im from Cleveland too.

I got a red IS300 and have not been pulled over yet. I wanted black, but there were no more 5speeds in the state in black when I bought my car. They shipped a red one from Pittsburg. I loved the red after seeing it next to a black IS300 when I went back to the dealer to see if they located a black car. I was hooked. So you know, I did go and the end of the model year when there is very limited selection. I believe I came out better. I said what the hell there is no real difference in 02 vs the 03, and saved some money.

I love my red car.

Personally, I think the IS looks a bit like an econobox in red. Someone posted a thread a while back about it.

I also wanted black but i decided red is flashier in good and bad ways i have Titanium tint in it and it looks sleek the window decals that i have on it match the color perfectly

I also have Red glow under the car in know people think itstoo ricey but at night it matches the paint perfectly i also put a hint of red glow on the foot wells of each seat thats enough glow for me it looks sleek :chill:

Red is an eye-catcher and not for everyone. I've seen only one other red IS (on Bolsa in Westminster) so I'm not sure how available they are. It took a while to get mine and they finally located one in northern California. Never have been pulled over. No front license plate, either but officers in OC are evidently less concerned about that than, for instance, in LA.
