My New 2008 Is 350


Recommended Posts

Mine finally arrived yesterday! 2008 IS 350 Smoky Granite, Cashmere interior, Navigation and Mark Levinson. I really like the new cashmere interior with the dark carpet. I had a blast taking a leisurely drive through the canyons. With the twisty canyon roads and the beautiful fall colors I felt like I was in a car commercial.

How did you get the black carpeting with the Cashmere interior? On '06 and '07 models Cashmere interior also had cashmere carpeting, which is harder to keep clean. I like that black carpet!

I haven't found anybody who knows for sure why some interiors have cashmere carpet and some have black carpet. My Lexus dealer said that it was a change Lexus made for 2008. But, I've heard from others who have a 2008 IS and cashmere carpets. Also, on the Lexus website in the interior photo gallery, there is a cashmere interior with cashmere carpet. But, the interior 360 view has a cashmere interior with black carpet. So, if anyone knows what determines the carpet color, I'm curious to know.
