Recommended Posts

Has anyone changed their window button surround? I think they is damn ugly.

Sure I've read you can get C/F ones? :unsure:

i saw a while ago that someone had painted theirs, don't know if you can get carbon fibre ones, why not try lextasy.com or is300.net to see if they keep any.

I thought that, i saw someone on here who painted theirs in chrome paint, didn't like that particularly, but it would look ok in a similar colour to the car i think, for example i've been thinking about coding the interior of mine, and started with the TRC and heated seats panel underneath the radio (see below for piccie), and think that'll look ok.

Just my tuppence in the tub!

i think the carbon ones look good, only reason why i dont use them is that mine is factory painted in graphite along with half of the dash some lexus is200 i seen isnt painted.

as for painting it, looks good not if it flakes off & i seen some very badly done jobs.

Yeah, don't really want to paint them and 6 months down the line its chipped. Getting some other C/F parts, so these won't stick out.

Thanks again Mark :winky:

no probs, sending it tomoro.

not to mention chipped paintwork by sharp long finger nails if you painted it.

heres a carbon trim cant exactly paint it or you cant see heater/stereo control details
