***Update: March 31, 2014***

Well, I got the call last Friday saying my vehicle was supposed to be ready for pick up Friday/Saturday. However, due to the ongoing local truckers strike their has been a delay in vehicle transfers from port to dealership. Good news is they lifted the strike and hopefully I get it this week!!

I couldn't help myself, but I picked up some more parts. Hopefully they don't collect dust too much longer.

I will be rocking these items for a bit, until I figure out what I want to do.

***Update: April 2, 2014 - Got the Call***

Went down as soon as I could to check her out, she's getting PDI'd and ready for pick-up tomorrow!!! My first time seeing ultrasonic blue in person and I'm happy with my choice. In the sun it was much brighter.

That's how rare USB is even in Canada! You can't even get to see one at the dealer.

It was a leap of faith as well for me back in June '13 when I ordered my IS and NO regrets. You will however notice that the USB (like some other Lexus colors) is really an array of paint tones within a color palette. For USB, you will see colors ranging from the lighter turquoise blues into the darker blues with almost a hint of purple, all depending on type and quantity of lighting to angle of reflection. So never a dull moment with this color. First pic has most of the lighter to medium shades while second pic shows the darker side.

The car will be lowered this wednesday, I will take some pictures then.

Nice S2k and USB 3IS. You are very lucky to be able to get that color, that is my favorite on the 3is.

I had a very similar experience with my last car. I ordered a pearl blue plasma STI without actually seeing the color since it was new for 2011. It looked great in pics and even better in person when I went to pick it up. Similar to the USB, it looks drastically different in different light conditions.

it was blue in normal light conditions
