    I'm not a fan of ultra-suede on the center console because for those who like to rest their arm on it during the summer, it might stain more easily than expected. I like how it looks, though. What I absolutely still dislike are those angle stacked dual exhaust tips. Minor gripes because overall this is one heck of a nice high-performance sedan.

    Just order the regular armrest and swap. Wonder if all 4 tips are functional? Looks like the lower one can be deleted and still look good in the diffuser.

    Yeah, you could maybe swap the console cover, but then you lose the visual effect of the ultra-suede. It LOOKS great. It's just more prone to staining. Maybe it could be treated to eliminate the staining issue.

    Like I said in my post, those two nits are really minor. It's a stunning and awesome sedan. If I wanted something other than my G-70, I'd be hard pressed not to seriously consider the IS-500 F.

    If IS500 is coming out in the fall, I wonder what lexus has in store for the IS F model? Maybe a TT V8.
