i know white is plain, but it's also clean and classy. the color you have chosen is a very dark color and will "dumb down" the looks of the car. IMO

no it means to take away from.

bright colors for the eye, dark colors taking attention away, more convervative.

That's a really nice colour I like that, or maybe that with a dash of blue pearl through it. Would look awesome!

Man that car looks awesome right now. I am not a big fan of white but your car wears it well.
BUT I think that new color would be unbelievable. Just my .02

Looks clean/classy in white, but would look good in that flint mica color as well...tough call.

Looks great in white, but the gray is an awesome color, too. The Flint Mica on the '04 LS and RX looks pretty similar to the Graphite Gray Pearl on the IS, which has always been one of my favorite Lexus colors.
