Will do with the sunny pics

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!!!
Congrats again! The color does stand out. Btw, your front looks quite close to the curb/wall. The front bumper of the new IS is quite low...

MOD UNVEIL - Tints, Roof Wrap, and for the savvy eye, chrome "lightning bolts" in the front air dams!

(and on a bright sunny day as some of you requested!)

That color is stunning! I'm so glad you had the ***** to purchase a color that isn't a snooze fest like others get to play it safe.

LOL, I guess you were following my other threads on how indecisive I was between UWhite, Obsidian, and USB. Love USB,
and MANY thanks to the lovely young lady below.

Thanks wednesday! Hopefully the pics are driving you crazy in a good way, to build momentum for the US folks to petition for USB!!!

I wasn't, but I'm glad you made the right choice. To be honest I'd have a hard time choosing between those colors, but ultimately USB is just too sick to ignore.

So glad you didn't even consider Silver. That just screams bland.

MOD UNVEIL - Those Lexus plates some of you have been wondering about.... Custom Belt Shoulder Pads and Build Pics!

Had to shave off the screws that came with the plates which is why you see the grinder. Other than that, straightforward install of measuring, making holes, and installing on standard black pads.

Agreed, especially since its so rare even in Canada on a 2IS and CT who have them as F-Sport options! Loving it and it's a jaw dropping head-turner.
