Looking forward to see what this is all about!

I'm in New York too and hope mine comes with red stitching.

If not, does it mean the dealer purposely withheld same?

There you go. The quality might not be good - my apologies. The first pic is the front passenger seat, and second is back.

I bought the all weather mats the same day I bought my car, so I never noticed until now that my two front mats have red stitching. Here in San Diego

I love, love, love it!!! Who knew driving could be so much fun?! With my previous two RXs, they were simply a means to get from place to place. But with my new 3IS, I seriusly cannot wait to drive it again and again. I love the exterior and interior colors. Red is amazing! You will definitely have a blast with yours!

Awesome! Can't wait!

Yup I had all those features with my RX400h. I miss the auto-tilt and dimming side-view mirrors the most. But it's fine...

Im over it. I changed out the mats for the all weather ones because the white font on the mat was getting dirty. Plus the all weather ones are WAY easier to clean up. Just hose them off.

Of those who don't have the red stitching, has anyone brought this issue up to their dealer? If so, what, if anything, has been done? Thanks!

It seems the very first 3IS Rioja Red F-sports did not ship with the red-stitched mats, but now they do. Have any "early owners" been able to get the correct mats from their dealer? When I inquired with my dealer, they told me I would need to contact corporate about the problem since apparently Lexus actually made this small change to the vehicle w Rioja Red early in the production cycle, but after I had already bought my vehicle. Therefore it's not a warranty or defect issue.

I’m very particular and thought this would be a problem, but it wasn’t, as my car came with the correct mats.

For those whose cars didn’t come with the red stitched mats, I had a similar problem a few years back on a Range Rover that was supposed to have chrome trim around the shift gate. I mentioned same to the dealer and they ordered the correct part, no questions asked.

Nevertheless, have to say the red stitched mats are extremely underwhelming! So much so that I’d say don’t even worry about getting the correct ones (and that’s coming from me, who would’ve ensured I received the correct mats)! Lexus went cheap and contrast stitching does not stand out at all (and they don't even say F Sport). So, I had a set of custom mats made. Unfortunately, the lighting was poor (flash used) and the picture doesn't do the mats justice, but they look great in person!

Another example with better pictures on another car of mine: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=515486

I received the red stitched floor mats and have to say that I do like them over non stitched ones

Also received Fsport key gloves with my new car as well
