Default The only 2011 Lexus IS F painted the Scion tC color CEMENT (1H5)!

This 2011 Lexus IS F was custom ordered by a customer at the request of VP of Lexus Marketing Brian Smith. The car started as an Obsidian (212) car and was painted (1H5) for a lucky Lexus associate.

Looks great but now the resale value is gone right? I want to do similar but the resale value crash is holding me back.

Wow....but just something to be said about doing that to a brand new car. Ripping it all apart, taking the glass out. Ouch!

I agree, not a big fan of the color. Seems a shame to go through all of the work custom painting it to that shade.

Unique color, not against it, but I would've went with the rootbeer color they offer on the TC or the yellow on the TRD edition instead.

Depends on the color, in this case too, the car has what? <20miles on it, so it would be really hard for someone to write it off - brand new and requiring an entirely new paint job, as per carfax which may or may not show up in the first place. Get it in some stupid color like Pink, then yes, good luck...

Im on the fence on this one.....I like the color, but the car seems to lose its BOLDNESS or EDGE. I really think the 08-09 wheels might help out in this situation of really pronouncing that color.......I dont think the pics really do it justice.....
