    The 3-tone trim in live photos looks much better than the PR pictures. About time they finally get rid of the cruise control stalk from Toyota's parts bin. The omission of cup holders and sunglasses holder is a mistake though.

    Can't wait to see more color scheme variations!

    Not a fan of the orange ... although my alma mater ... the University of Florida's school colors are blue and orange!

    Agreed. I think that orange color should be reserved for an F model maybe.

    I'm sure some with like the orange and that's fine but orange has never been in my color wheel.

    I'm actually a fan of the orange, its the blue thats throwing me a little. I think if the blue were black or really dark grey I would like the color scheme a lot more. Overall really loving this interior though. Nice to see the LFA-inspired stalks by the gauge cluster making their way to a production car, and the entire dash has an LFA type look to it.

    I don't really like the velvet look at the top of the interior (see pic #6) because it just reminds me of the seats of old non-luxury cars that smell bad. It just doesn't look luxurious.

    Looks so good even in those amateur photos!

    Only concern will be the off white color seats getting dirty quickly or require much more maintenance.

    Will any orange sewing on the steering wheel & dash look too flashy?

    I wonder when they will add the LCH onto Lexus web page. I love looking at pictures there and going back and forth to see what future car I really want.

    I have read some comments on European fora that the airco panel in the centre dash seems a bit cheap and too much of a 20th century feeling. I personally don't see any problem. Do any of you also dislike this feature?

    I don't see it either. It looks really nice.

    The reason might be because of the analog clock. My friend who is a BMW fan said he doesn't like the clock on the dash because it looks too "old"

    I greatly prefer the analog clock to the Toyota parts-bin LED one we used to get (even in the LS). I think it's much classier.

    I mean he's a BMW groupie he had to come up with something to complain about. If that's their best complaint I take that as a very good complement!

    But there should be a digital one somewhere to display accurate time at a quick glance.

    AC panel seems fine.
    I do think that they can improve on those black buttons, especially those on the door and left side of steering wheel. Why not do gun metal chrome to them just like the rest of interior?
