It's an odd maroonish color. Anyone have the name or paint code? I believe it's the same color on all US iQs. Thanks!

I'm talking about the leading edge you can see through the windshield. Best cell phone picture I could get but you will see what I'm talking about.

Oh OK yeah, that's what I meant also however, I always thought mine was closer to the colour of my car. Now, I'm not sure. I will have to take a closer look when I leave work.

I don't know the color of it, but I am thinking it is kinda close to the "Salsa Red Pearl". By the way, what phone do you use? The quality of the picture is very good! Samsung?

Off Topic:
I am using an iPhone 4s. My favorite picture so far (Avatar) was also taken on the phone. When I have more time I will dust off my Nikon D7000 and take some proper pictures. I have seen your shots and they remind me how much more I have to learn about photography! The lighting you used is great.

On Topic:
Salsa Red Pearl does does look like a close match from what I can see online. I will start looking for a local scion in that color to compare.

Whatever color it is my question is why? It just doesn't fit with the interior in my opinion.

On here somewhere is a report that the shifter knob is stitched in white and they used a red sharpie to color the thread.

I'm totally doing the sharpie trick to my shifter knob when after I pick up my iQ, which I'm hoping will be tomorrow or Saturday. The wait is killing me.

It is the optional leather shifter knob that has the stitching not the stock one. FYI
THATS RIGHT TO,maybe one day i WILL have a look at my interior,i think im still to excited driving it to notice,so i just went and had a peak,by golly,there NO stich ing on the stock one.im not a fan off the ball one anyway,i believe the one in the IQ would just feel better in the palm.
