All I can confirm for now is that the 09's will have a red/black two tone interior option !! But again, less than 5 % will have it. Nothing else is being said besides "VERY Minor" changes.......

Trying to get more out of my sources !!!!

I wish I knew, but my sources are keeping a tight lip !!! Can't blame them really... But if I was to bet... I'd say the Alpine is going away.

that would be my guess too since there were issues with the alpine staining? good thing i placed my order already for it lol. hello excellent resale value! haha but then again, mine for sure will be an '09 since it wont be here till november. i hope i can still get the alpine interior since the order was placed earlier this week. =\

when do the details for the '09 come out?

Your right for some reason I thought this new red/black color was another Neiman Marcus edition because I saw in an advertisement (in Japan) there was a black ISF with red interior and it had the Neiman Marcus wheels on it.Which has chrome on the spokes. Just craaazee ol me lol

I asked my "sources" (lol) and I am told there is no issue with the white interiors, staining or or any other issues.

Black interior is an easier color to sell, not many want to gamble on being able to sell the white interior cars.

I was told NOT to get my hopes up about getting cooled seats.... They don't want to have to re-do the seats to get it to work.

Thanks for the info, especially about the cooled seats. I can't wait to hear more about the new interior and minor changes.

I have heard from a few Lexus sales reps whom I trust that the white interior is subject to staining from certain dark clothing articles such as jeans. I experienced it "first hand" with the Lotus (white) interior in my 1988 BMW M6 which is why I went with the black interior for my IS-F. The white interior however is beautiful.

I love the way the white looks but I too was concerned about that look changing over time. I guess I'm glad I didn't have to make the hard decision at the time since I only had one choice :)

and are they discontinuing the alpine now that red/black is out or is this an additional option?
Not at this point, but it is a special order option only at this time.

Red/Black is just speculated projection at this point. More to come though.
