Color looks great, just need to lower your car and you'll be set.

WOW thanx for the overwhelming responses guys!

I fell in love with this color when I saw it on a 05 LS430 UL with saddle interior. My car was already in the shop for repairs so I decided at the last minute to change the color.

One thing I notice though: the car got more attention when it was Black! even with the stock 16's on.

The paint is urethane.. I believe it is either 3M or Universal. It is very shiny. The car looks brand new.
I think that the GS came with a different shade with the SD. It was the one available with the IS300.. charcoal metallic or other. I also considered this color. I thought it was nice too. But yea.. I have to lower the car soon.

Thanks again guys for the compliments.

yeah black is always nice. seriously if i were to repaint my car with another color, black is probably the color i will go with. of course it's going to be a real *** to keep clean.

but the flint mica is very nice too, very unique. when we got our sc430 we almost got a flint mica ls430 instead. deal didn't happen but the color was definitely outstanding
