The significant delete options were the audio delete I mentioned above, and additionally, the extending spoiler can actually be deleted. The extending spoiler delete does not have a fixed spoiler as replacement; I can only imagine the spoiler delete is for weight saving, but the PS could not confirm that. I did confirm that the badge delete is only the rear LFA badge, and the F on the fenders are not included in that delete option.

Most of the differences were interior colors or materials and the areas they are applied to. There wound up being a lot more interior areas than on the configurator and the allocation order sheet. For example, the steering wheel and the door grips are separate areas, so the material and color for each had to be specified. The instrument panel, door trim, and center console also had some different areas, although I don't recall if each got its own area. There were also color option areas around the dashboard, on the pillars, and around the center console. Additionally, there were some interior carbonfiber options. I recall that at least the area over the dash could be done in carbonfiber, although I elected to have alcantara.

There was also a floor mat color option, which I assume is to match the floor mat color with the carpet color; there was no delete option (I asked, just out of curiosity), but I suppose those are easy enough to remove.

That's all I remember for now, but I'll post of course if I recall anything else.

- I don't remember the option to delete the main spoiler.
- Lexus people reccommended Leather over Alcantara for ease of maintenance. They said the latter would be great if I were to track the car a lot.
- Light weight ML sound system and Nav can be deleted.
- Stiching thread color can be chosen separately.
- Brake caliper color is optional
- 3 wheel styles to chose from
- Last but not least the Nur package is optional
Thanks and thanks guys.

I love my Alcantara seats.
Cleaning is actually easy, if you drop something on it, you wipe it with a damp cloth and you can brush it to keep it clean or vacuum. Leather you have to condition and isn't as durable. Leather is hot in the summer and cold in the winter, I will likely never buy another car with leather as the only option.

IMO... This multi-color theme doesn't sit well at all on the car. Dare I say "ricerish"?
I understand the "limited edition endurance" model etc. But still...

Absolutely in love with the black pillars and roof!!

Looking at previous 'ring edition photos (studio pics), the other car did not have a black hood or black bumper treatment. That was all body color. Wonder if those pieces are just for test fitment.

Almost every LFA is going to be multi-color because of the vents.

I don't like the front side-splitter thing on the NB edition, it doesn't look like it fits right. I think the paint job is great however.

I don't think that is the finish NB edtition, it looks like added on pcs to the car. My thoughts the the finish product will look more polished.

I think black/red would be a better combo for the two-tone theme.

I would go Panda theme with clear coated carbon instead of black or go full clear coated carbon. Mmmmm....

I'm not a huge fan of two-tone exteriors but my car sort of has it (panoramic roof, it's all glass from windshield to hatch). It's not as noticeable if you have a darker color car however like mine.

It's not two-tone. There was never a two-tone LFA, these are just parts put on for testing. Haven't we seen the press-release for the Nurb' edition? It didn't show two tone, the rear wing was added along with a splitter and two kanards on either side of the front bumper, all were in carbon fiber, these pieces are just painted and added on, and might i add that the rear wing seems to be adjustable! Awesome. I think they just painted the black over the sides to give it a bit of an off look. Car companies do that a lot, it's like saying, "I don't like that zebra paint on the new M6" It's not going to be there. And how dare you say 'rice'! What do you call the ACR then? 'Corn'? Or how about the GT3 RS? 'Kraut'? That can be taken as a racist remark, not many Asian people I know like that word used in that terminology.
