Spotted: IS convertible.

I saw this near W16th and MacDonald. Outside Choices.

Sorry, I was in friend's car and it was passing by and I was in shock when I saw it so I didn't have time to get out my camera to take a picture but...

WOW that think looks ugly!

Yup, so bloody ugly. The IS is so dated now; Lexus wake the hell up and redesign the bloody thing.

Maybe with a IS-F type kit it would look decent.

I saw a G37 convertible today. Looked really nice.

IS Vert will look nice with some less generic wheels and a drop.

I actually like the look of the second gen IS more so than the first gen...

But the 2nd gen is too much like a luxury boat compared to the first gen and the convertible is just fugly.

Me too, I never liked the altezza look of the previous IS.

What's so bad about the convertible? With the roof down it looks good, with the roof up it looks awkward, yet so does most of the other hard-top verts.

Personally, I think the 2nd gen sedan looks way better than the convertible. The convertible, especially the picture posted above, looks like a car for the retired. Maybe it's the colour...I'm sure black would look better lol.

Volvo C70 looks nicer... excellent proportions, IS convertible = fail, when volvo makes a better looking car.
