i've got a glacier frost with cashmere interior. I'm too old to care what others think. Go buy a harley or something to prove to your "friends" that you're not a "girly man"

You're absolutely right. Girls LOVE my Glacier Frost IS... I should have bought "chick colored" cars sooner! Breakwater Blue was my second choice...

As for the white on cashmere combo, "chick car" is not what comes to mind... More like "elegant," "classy," and "refined," but you could really say that about any 2IS.

i dont see how thats a "chick" color combo. i personally hate that cashmere color with a passion, it gets dirty really really easy. I told the salesperson at the dealer to not even consider anything but black interior. She said how about "cas....." i said no way b4 she even finished the sentence.

IMO i think the 1gen IS's were a chick's car... but as for the new generation i think it's the sc's....just my opinion

Yes us girls LOVE Glacier Frost, including me!

btw, Javi you owe me a ride in your GFM car!

Seriously though to the OP, get what you want. It's only important what you like. After all, it is YOUR money.

I say.. its a classy color combo.

Very clean, and refined. Much like black and cashmere. Isn't black and cashmere, and white and cashmere traditional high end luxory car color combos?

You really should get whatever colour combination that you like. Who cares what other people think, you're the one paying for it and if you like it that's all that matters. Is there a problem with women liking your car? Wouldn't that be a good thing?

I did the Starfire Pearl with Sterling interior. I actually had to do a whole bunch of searching to find that exact color combo on an IS350. I like the look of the black interior, but I couldn't do it with 100+ degree Dallas summers.

White with cashmere interior is very clean looking and fresh. It isn't "girly."

White with black interior is a bit more aggressive and prominent. It isn't "masculine."

And even if it is "feminine" or "masculine," it is no different than a man who dyes his hair, or a woman wearing a suit.

Who's afraid of car color combinations?!?
