A deep, dark, fine flaked metallic. I like the Smoky Granite Mica and Deep Sea Mica on the current Lexus IS and LS respectively. Though these colors are too dark for my actual tastes, my alter car ego is

Depends on your build-up. Even at stock, these are some nice colors and shows the updated color scheme.

I have been keeping an eye open and all of the IS colors are so badass! I Saw an LS600hL In Opaline Pearl (1G5)!

That was the best color i have ever seen!

You forgot the stickers.

Oh, for the OP...if you don't care about it being an original OEM color, go with Black Sapphire Pearl (available on newer models). I'm assuming money is not a concern here though.
