I decided on a new thread to my original "Auto Show Questions" since the NX was there. Saw 3 NX 200ts at the Orange County Auto Show. Two of them were F Sports. Both of these were locked. The third, a regular 200t, was being used as an enform demonstrator and was open for a period of time. The interior is very nice, befitting a luxury vehicle. Upholstery was not leather, but very nice nonetheless. In the driver's seat, it didn't feel as open as my RX - it felt like the center console was higher or the seat was lower. Rear seat room appears adequate for most people. Outward visibility seems no worse than other vehicle in this class. IMO, the front end looks better in person, the F Sport looking the best of all. The rear light housing top surface is wide enough to rest a beer can on (outside drink holder?). I was told the spare tire is full diameter but reduced width. Tires on the F Sports were Michelin Primacy mxm4s, Yokohama Geolandar G91s on the regular 200t. As you can imagine, a lot of people were sitting in this car. No pricing given.

Great pictures. I think that I'll end up going with the blue exterior and beige interior. Seems like a classy combo to me.

Thanks for posting those pics! I'm planning on purchasing the NX200t F Sport but so far, didn't decide between black or white for the exterior color but did decide on those wheels in the pics. I'll be ordering the triple eye led head lamp and most of the options.

Do you know if the two F Sports are the US models? And if so, did either have the black seats with the red stitching and the red inserts (black and dark rose) on the front and bottom parts of the seats (not the full red seats with the black inserts on the front and bottom of the seats). I'm trying to find out if they are going to be an option on the US model F Sport. And did either have the black Shimamoku interior trim?

Do you know if interior trim shown in the last picture is the black Shimamoku? And if so, how did it look?

Blue is nice. I believe this one is exclusive to the F Sport. Here is another view from the rear side. Notice all the reflective surfaces.

I did not ask if they were US models, but one Lexus rep I was speaking with was listing US specs (example - no Mark Levinson stereo). The white F Sport I could get up to the window and look inside. Lighting was dim but it did have full red seating surfaces, I remember saying to myself it was just like the site pictures. What you want could be an option. It was not bright enough for me to make the trim out. The blue F Sport I could not get right up to. There was a low clear barrier around the car. However, I remember that the headrests did not look red and I wondered if it was due to the lighting. I can't say for certain what the trim was in the last picture - sensory overload. Pictures I've seen of the Shimamoku look amazing. Sorry I haven't been able to help. When you place your order, I believe the dealer confirms with Lexus what you have specified. Hopefully a brochure will be available soon.

My salesman said he's going to a NX training class on Tuesday and will provide me with any new info he gets on the NX (US specs).

As the NX has been making it's debut around the nation at various dealers and seeing what color NX they have had at events, which for some of us is a first look at what these colors look like.... i have to say... blue is now one of my favoirtes.

I'm starting to change my mind about what color to order. This blue is starting to look really nice! Sorry about the double post. I was trying to figure out how to post the video.

That shade of blue seems to be one of the popular colors this year. I'm beginning to notice more cars with this color. Chrysler is advertising one in this blue shade.

That blue is indeed killer, as for dark colors, it's probably going to be on top of my list. Out of all... so far white is on top of my list, it just looks too good in white.
