After almost 3 months, I got it!!!

Let me say this, color looks incredible in pictures, yet it doesn't give it justice! Ultrasonic Blue is absolutely surreal in real life. Neck-snapping head turns on my way back from Lexus.

Mods to come over the next few days!!!

Told you, it is amazing! I think now you can see why I am so upset about it not being offered here and so hesitant to give up my blue 2IS even for MRM. It really is beautiful and I just have to have one!

That looks amazing. Still wonder why we don't get USB here. Almost tempting to get it painted that color.

THANKS EVERYONE for all your support! As a proud owner, I will post several more pics to please the eyes to all you folks, especially those in the US (with the biggest global lexus market) who are un-rightfully deprived of this beautiful color.

I believe you're right in N.America (or Canada for that matter)!
Ainir is the first in the East and overall with his 300h

Totally right! It's a color you truly appreciate in the flesh. Folks in the US, petition to Mark Templin about the US market being 10x the Canadian one, yet fewer colors like USB and Atomic Silver F-Sport are not available - a HUGE sales/marketing mistake.

Indeed! 2 inches away in that shot.

I started to post a reply begging everyone else that want's to see this color back in the USA to email Lexus and call their dealers but I didn't want to hijack your thread, now that you've said it I will implore with people to please do this! I emailed them and am thinking of emailing them again, I also told my dealer when they wanted to buy my lease out early, that I would be waiting because of this. Squeaky wheel people!

No worries about hijacking my thread, but honestly, I would start a new thread to make this more visible and effective. Heck, make it a poll to show how many folks want USB in the US. I'll even vote as it's totally illogical and only now that I own USB do I truly understand how much of an injustice this is against my southern neighbors.
