Hi,

Today, a colleague from Brussels parked this in our underground car park:



- yes, a Lexus RX300 in the color that here is known as Arctic Blue. In the US, the color is called Breakwater Blue Metallic and looks slightly different:



but I believe the color is the same. I liked it, anyway, and believe it could be quite close to the W164 Alpine Rain, or as we call it Lasurite Blue:



Could any of you in the US/CAN with easier access to both vehicles (Lexus RX'es are almost as rare as W164 over here [;)][;)]) if possible have a look and confirm this theory - or shoot it down in flames [:I]

PS: Sorry about posting non-Mercedes pics, but I guess it's OK for comparison purposes......

I saw an RX330 today that looked just like the blue one in your top photo. There was a bit of mud and dirt spattered on it (I didn't know people actually drove these on dirt roads), and it gave the impression of a woman having mud on her pantyhose and high heels.

Maybe it's time for her to get rid of the "muddy" pantyhose and high heels? [;)] [:D] [:I]

It was my understanding that this color is Alpine Rain:

any word

any word on availability of Alpine rain?? has anyone seen this color in person? feedback? seems like a decent alternative to silver, which i like, but is just too common.

Alpine Rain begins with June Builds.

Today I saw two of the RX330's in the color Birger mentioned above. YUCK! Too much like what we in the US call "baby blue". I was very feminine looking. Not a very rich color at all. I hope that the Alpine Rain doesn't turn out like that.

Birger...

Since the launch package W164s are only available in Black or Silver, I think it may be a while till we see the Alpine Rain as well!

I agree with Jack though, the RX's is rather, well, blue [:D] It would be nice though, if it was like MB's Horizon Blue!

Don't get me wrong I love blue it's my favorite color sans the darks though. But if it's close to the Lexus US blue then I'm completely happy with the Pewter I have coming in a matter of weeks.
