Hi

I need to repair and repaint the front splitter on my GS. Paint code is 1E0. When I try to order paint, there seem to be two different colours, flint mica or dark grey. Anyone any idea which is correct? 

Thanks in advance.

Is the paint code not listed on the drivers door, b pillar?  

I'm sure there was a similar question about this only the other day. Either that or the heat has got to me...

They're both the same colour as John mentioned. The US always change their names to much better ones IMO.

For example, Arctic Pearl (UK) = Starfire Pearl (US) and Sonic Red = Infrared etc etc

Thanks for your help, just getting my head around Lexus/Toyota and the differences in paint colours. I'm guessing as long as I have the paint code I'm ok. Just received an original UK spec brochure for the GS LE. As ever, I had to laugh as in that brochure 1E0 is listed as Aleutian grey.....

      A couple of weeks ago I managed to damage the rear bumper of my car with the metal dropbolt mounting of my driveway gates which put 2 small puncture holes into the middle of the bumper. No scuffs but 2 very neat and annoying marks. Being pearlescent white  I was dreading the cost of repairs and the quality of finish.  My local Chipsaway Franchise in Gloucester seemed to have some good reports so I paid Stuart the owner a visit. He said that the pearlescent would require more painting of the bumper than usual to get a good match and blend in and quoted a price of £192 inclusive. The car went in on Monday at 8am and I collected it at 4.30pm. 
      I am over the moon with the result. Even shining a bright light on the paint to get the flakes to pop doesn't reveal the signs of any repairs.  You would never know that the paint isn't factory finish. I would definitely recommend him for minor paint correction.

      Hi all
      I have a new NX on order which, after much deliberation with the other half, will be in Velvet Black.
      I know that being black and non metallic, light scratches and swirling will show up more readily than on lighter bodywork. As such we were considering taking the Lexus paint protector which I think is through Supagard. 
      So my question is will this type of protection even help towards preventing swirls etc. And if so is the Lexus offering good value/worth while? E.g. would I be better off taking it to a third party auto detailer? Any advice or experience would be greatly appreciated 
      Thanks all

      Dear fellow owners,
      I am just replacing all the four calipers on my IS250 (the new ones are still in the box), and I was wondering on getting them laquered to protect those from rust.
      Ideally I would't paint them so I am planning to use a clear coat only.
      I found these products on amazon, would you think those would work on their own, without a coloured primer?

      Thanks for your time.
