New model on 2006 . I saw a pre - production picture issue but don't remember the site ( TopGear ? ) . Looks very , very sporty and aggressive . Something between TT and Z 350 .

@Mat

For a word. Will it look great? Will a today IS-Owner see it as a must to go for the new IS?

What do you think?

Each to their own ! I wouldn't hardly say it's boring - at least it's something to show! Do you rekon those alloys are boring as well!

OK perhaps boring was a bit strong. It looks OK but the next IS should look really good and not just OK and a mix of bits from other cars. The alloys do look good but you already find ones like that on the Chrysler Crossfire.

I was chatting to a sales chap at my local Lexus dealer yesterday evening. He mentioned that the new IS will be available next September and will be available in the following forms....

....wait for it....

Saloon (yeah, no surprises there!)

Coupe (oh pleeeez let it be an M3 beater!!!)

...and....

A CONVERTIBLE!!!! :blink::ohmy: B) :shifty:

Sales guy didn't have much info about this but he thought it would be something similar to the new BMW 3 series drop-top (ie. it'd be a metal roof a la the Merc CLK convertible - not a canvas roof like the Audi A4).

You're not suggesting that the sales chap might have been telling me porkies are you? :ohmy: :o :ohmy: :o

He sounded pretty convincing (though it could have something to do with the fact that I'd mentioned I was thinking about getting a Merc next)
