The F Sport wheels don't look bad on a black car, it actually makes it look Aggressive. NICE!

So... after 1 week, the finish is starting to flake off on the Fsport wheels... I am off to the dealer in a day or two for inspection.... :-(

Still waiting on the caliper paint before I post more pics!

Yep - that was me! I am a big fan of Magnussen's... they are the best. The service manager is beyond a god!

Type me about it....3 of the 4 wheels, in the same basic spots. I will almost guarantee that Lexus tries to blame the wheel balancing, but being as 2 different dealers have seen the wheels since and there was NOT A SCRATCH until Monday, I have a hard time believing it would suddenly appear as a result of work done 7 days prior.

But then again, I digress and should think positively.... maybe they'll just say, ok - here ya go! LOL

There may have been a contaminant in a small run of these wheels.. there's no scoring on metal or other indications that it was done during mount or balance, or an attempt to steal. So, the warranty is covering it! :-)

So, everyone who asked, thanks for the compliements, etc., and here's some more pics with the calipers painted Silver! These are, as usual, horrible cell phone pics, but you'll get the idea... The car is also a bit dusty from all the work. I will take photo shoot like pics very soon on a clean car, but here are some teasers...
