Just signed on to the Lexus IS300 team. Plunked down my coin last night for a new yellow, with black leather.
I haven't heard much buzz here about this colour, seems the silver and blue are the big choices. I know amougst the Miata enthusiasts ( my other car...red), the yellow is one of the more desirable colors.
I love it, and can't wait to get it next week.

Yellow rules! I don't have one because they aren't making many, I didn't want to wait and I basically chickened out. If you're going to get attention anyway, might as well go all the way.

Most of the yellow taxis I see have more orange/red pigment in the paint.

I was confused myself. I liked all the colors at the Lexus ride and drive event, frankly I wasn't sure which one to get. From the Mica Blue, to the Graphite, to the Yellow, they all looked so nice. I settled for black, since I've never owned a black car, and I fell in love with mine the moment I lay eyes on it.
As I mentioned in my post, there's plenty of yellows being shipped to the NY/NJ/CT area. I see them at the Toyota lot on my way to work. And in a sea of cars, they sure as hell stand out.
If you get a yellow, consider yourself lucky.
And don't worry about those "taxi" comments...

Enjoy

To me, Silver is the color of choice. I just got my Silver/Black IS last week. I never really liked silver until I saw it on the IS300.

The color coordinates well with the other trim on the car. The grill, rims and the interior all coordinate with silver or Graphite Grey.

I just bought my one year old a Talking Laa-Laa... I was considering Laa-Laa as my license tag... hmmm.

I honestly can't imagine the car in any color other than yellow. I've seen a couple on the road and mine just seems sportier. My wife said that I'll have a hard time getting my next car unless it's got a wild color. She digs the yellow too.

Just wish the paint wasn't chipping away, another 4 months and it should be black up front
Hopefully Lexus will hear the complaints about the paint and anty up.
