Default Rarest LS430 UL?

hi guys,

Do we have any members here that own 2006 Flint Mica with Saddle UL? According to Lexus this option was available in 06'. I have seen White/Saddle UL and Black/Saddle UL, but not Flint Mica/ Saddle UL.

That combo was supposedly available and I would have been interested when I was shopping. However, I've never seen a Flint Mica / Saddle LS430 in person or in any ad.

I personally think the rarest interior color is Bordeaux leather. I never never seen no more than
one and I have seen plenty of the LS with the saddle interior.

Probably not too popular because it was literally like a plum/purple leather color.

I agreed with you, but the problem is not too many people cared or wanted that ugly combo.

I've only seen one myself. It happened to be Randy Moss personal car and was for sale in florida back in 2003.
