Seriously, if you like it, then that's all that really matters. Your friends are just jealous. If it is indeed a "girly" combo, then you will give them even more to be jealous about!!!

I just got my 07 IS350 white on beige combo and to be honest its the cleanest colour combo possible. Its clean and lux. U wont regret the colour combo and trust me my girl loves the colours. Blacks more depressing for interior you love the white on beige i know i do.

Hey man one thing to think about.. 99.99% of 250 drivers here locally are chicks so if your getting a 250 in that color then everyone may insinuate that more.. I have the starfire w/black combo and as for the white dude it's amazing.. I've gotten compliments from guys and girls old and young.. I never thought I would have a white car but this white is almost candy in the sunlight, not the dull white on other cars.. But all in all get what YOU want man, most of the **** talkers will be people who want the car but can't get it

IMHO, white and beige says "premium." Very clean and unexpected. The warm interior is a nice contrast to the cool exterior.

depends on what you want. I think Cashmere looks more luxury and black looks more sporty. I love my Black Sapphire Pearl with cashmere

if you have any doubts with that color combo, just get some tint. a white IS with black tint makes the car sooooo sexy. No way in hell is that a chick car!

NO it's not! I'd date a guy who drives a IS no matter WHAT color it is because it shows he has GOOD TASTE. Period. 'nuff said.

Get what YOU like and to hell with what other people think!
I agree. Your the one driving it so get what you like.

i want white exterior with all black interior with navigation.....but it is impossible to find in awd.......so i might have to go with cashmere or the color combo....i honestly think the cashmere looks a little more classy.

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?
+1

I almost bought a GFM + Cashmere, but I intend to keep the 350 a long time and didn't want to fight keeping it clean.....but yes white + cashmere is a classic color combo that will never go out of style.

that said IMO - black interior = more sporty cashmere = more luxurious, classy

I think that you should go with your own personal preference and forget what the other people think about the color combination. After all, it will be you making the payments on the car.

I personally think that the best colors to combine with the Starfire Pearl are cashmere or black, in that order, but the real factor you should consider when getting either color is that cashmere will show stains easier than the black will, and therefore, will require more maintenance. So definitely take that factor into consideration.

My IS is Crystal White with cashmere and if I had to choose again, I would go with the same color combination because I think it looks elegant and both colors compliment each other well
