Are you color blind?

Are you asking about tires, or the 2018 model year? I can't really tell by the 18", which means 18-inch, but I am not sure if that is what you mean.

If you are talking about paint: personally I like Ultrasonic Blue, but it's hard to find. You may have to special order. Atomic Silver is also a nice color, and it's hard to go wrong with it as it is easy to find one in stock from what I have seen.

I think it's pretty contextually evident he's asking about the 2018 model year...

Ultrasonic Blue is gorgeous! Following that, Caviar and Nebula Gray Pearl take my vote. That said, paint preference is pretty subjective.

My vote is for Atomic Silver, I had a 2014 IS and now a 2018 both Atomic Silver, I like the color on the sun, plus is pretty clean, you donít notice that dirt much, again choices on colours is a very personal preference. It depends what you like or what are you planning to do with the car.

I was going to start a thread on this.
I have a 2017 Caviar/RR. Looks very cool, and doesn't show dirt like Obsidian.
The Caviar needs to be seen in person to appreciate.
Definitely the Darth Vader look, though. Also the grill and brake cooling ducts don't pop against the finish.

I think the car looks best in Ultra White. The grill and ducts pop nicely. This white is a very popular color, though.
If I was in So Cal, I would have to have an IS350 Ultra White/RR RWD Fsport.
Up here in the NE corridor, the 2017 Caviar IS300 AWD Fsport is what I ended up with and I am very happy.

I can't get into the Eminent White Pearl.......to me it looks sick....bad sick, not good sick.
Ultrasonic Blue Mica is really nice, and allows the grill and trim pieces to pop.
Personally, I am not into silver/gray finishes. Obsidian is really problematic to keep clean and free of scratches,
as you know from your previous Lexus.

So, to me, it is a toss up between Ultra White, Caviar, Ultrasonic Blue Mica.

Sorry! Yours looks great! The mods help! Up here in the NE it looks duller than in the Florida sun.
I probably am biased, as my neighbor has Eminent White Pearl, but never seems to wash the car.
On a dark day, it looks kind of yellowish.
Anyway, I didn't mean to offend!

I can agree with this from a practicality standpoint. My Obsidian is always filthy. Beautiful when clean, but would not buy again.

Color is a very subjective thing, but being in the NE you will see a lot of grey days so I would lean toward colors that pop like the Redline or Ultrasonic Blue. They both contrast grey tones from cloudy days and will definitely pop in the sun.
