Sorry guys is it just me or is the paint or clear coat on these RCFs butter soft, my case got caught by the wind and blew into the door....it put a mark in it and it was no more than a strong tap.....another smart repair methinks......

It is a self-healing paint so try warming it up and see if the mark disappears.

Does the ISF have this paint too?

Thanks for that, it has went down to the undercoat so I am not sure it's going to work but I'll give it a try....

No, was only on later Lexus models.

Flytvr had the bonnet and roof on my carbon done with Ngenco. Must admit I'm quite impressed with it, though it has picked up one stone chip on the bonnet. As it's a daily driver for me and does highish miles, I'm considering getting the whole car done before it picks up too many chips and car park scratches, that was a bit of an issue with the softish paint on my ISF.. Wondering if anyone else has gone down this route? Any thoughts anyone?

One of my last cars had a 3M film on the bonnet front wings and grill area I understand it was expensive but it really did preserve the car. I've been told the latest clear films are even better considering how soft the RCf paint is I wonder if this might be a good option. Not sure how the film would react to the soft paint though and wonder if the eventual removal of the film might cause problems.

What do you think the rough costs to get the car coated with Ngenco might been, given you had the bonnet a roof done.  I am more concerned about the doors as it always seem to be some thing banging into them....

not sure yet, still doing some research, but it's more expensive than film...

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
