I am interested in Flint Mica but only if it comes with Ivory. If not probably Shadow Quartz if that is what I think it is

Also I think they changed Ivory to Cashmere or somethin..

Flint Mica is also on the RX330. It's a gray color that usually doesn't come with a beige/ivory interior. You can count on Ash being a choice and possibly black.

It's a dark purple. Like Amethyst in our SC430.

Yes, on the GS430 it comes with Ash only.

On the GS300 it comes with Ash or Cashmere on a "fully loaded".

I believe if you go to www.lexus.ca you can build your GS....the exterior and interior colors show up and tell you what you can get as colors depending on the exterior color. i was surprised because with black, you can't choose ash as an interior color. Its the same for the US, however there is one color missing in the canada website...i think it was the cypress pearl. They are not offering it there.

My wife wants the Mercury Metallic and I'm thinking of getting the same or the Matador Red. We both are getting Black Interiors.

It will be easier to decide once we see them in person.

flint mica is a medium grey with metallic sprinkles. It's a very nice color. see my post about my 99 GS3 that I had painted in flint mica.

Today, I just saw a GS4 up close and personal. It was parked right next to an ES330. To me, The new GS does not at all look like the maxima nor the altima. It looks like a bigger, sportier ES330. I can see the design cues between both. Now if that's the trend that Lex is going to go to now.... more power to them. it's a nice sedan. Not exactly my cup of tea right now. maybe it will grow on me. I'm sorry it's not love at first sight like it was with the 99. Hei.... the MB E class I used to hate... but the design grew on me. maybe this will too. hopefully. or maybe not hopefully... so i dont have to spend to buy a new one.. hehehehehheehhehehe
