Default What Color is my Interior?

Recently I purchased a 2006 IS 250 to give to my son as a college graduation present. The interior is perfect . . . except for some minor wear on the driver seat (where else?). The exterior is Glacier Frost Mica. I can't tell for sure if the interior is Sterling or Cashmere. Can anyone tell me is there a number in the VIN that tells you what the color code is for the interior?

I think it may be Sterling because the carpet is charcoal/black. I'm wanting to order some touch up leather dye and I want to be sure that I order the correct color. Thanks for any help.

If you want to use the VIN, go to any Lexus dealer and any salesman can get you a PrintOut copy of the original window sticker.

The interior color code is right next to the paint code.

Thanks lysis250. After doing a little more research I stumbled on a web site that showed where it is on the drivers front door.

By the way, my interior is Sterling.

It's Sterling (gray). The tan interiors didn't get black carpets until '08.

Thanks. Looking to pick up some leather dye to redo that part of the drivers seat that always gets worn first. Anybody have suggestions on which leather dye works best. I had a guy respray my seats when I owned an S60 Volvo, but this is such a small area I was thinking of taking care of it myself.
