Palms Posted January 30, 2007 Share Posted January 30, 2007 Hi people, I am posting this only due to my experience in cars as i was once a panel beater /spray painter in my younger years. I have been doing a bit of research on the forums in the USA also with my own experience with my own car. This is for those people who really don't know about what you have bought or know about the paint on your car. The paint on the is250 is very soft compaired to older models, i think this is due to the type of paint they are using on this new models. It is said lexus used an environmentally friendly paint on the new models making it softer than previous model. Here is a link in the usa, these guys are fanatics with their cars so you could learn something from them from their posts and recomendations http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/index...=paint&st=0 Also when you wash your car it's best you do it your self otherwise scratches will appear in no time. The best thing to do is go to your car lovers joint and use their gerni(high pressure water gun) to get rid of your top layer of dust and dirt before you hand wash your car with decent car wash, not the stuff you get from coles either. I wrote a detailed segment on how i detailed my car way back if your interested http://au.lexusownersclub.com/forums/index...?showtopic=3202 I won't go into detail here now, that's what the links for as it might sound anal to some but to a car lover it's a must to keep scratches to a minimun. The new lexus paint will take up to a year for the paint to harden, so be careful when you wash it. Just thought you should know. palms Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
