KenDude, I also attended my local auto show, specifically to see the CT200h. It was there in brilliant in Daybreak Yellow Mica! I spoke with a Lexus rep for a minute or two regarding the projected launch date. I was never "invited" to complete a survey card indicating my interest in the car. Your point about being a key influencer is spot on. My in-laws both purchased new Lexus's (ES330 & ES350) based upon my recommendations. Lexus can easily see when and if you signed up on their website to receive pre-launch information about the CT200h and thus could be classified as an early adopter. Good luck and keep us posted on how you make out.
