Everyone please help report this to the NHTSA for recall consideration. https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/

I think you can get it repaired at Radar-mirror.com for $100. I have the black spots too, just haven't had time to get it fixed.

Oh damn, that looks crazy. Luckily I don't have any of these in both IS. May be I will look at it more closely to see if there is any black tiger skin mark on it. Anyone have the link for the TSB?

There is NO TSB, that's the issue at hand. It seems to be happening to many IS 5-6 years old. Right after warranty expires. And Lexus won't do anything about it.

Lexus Platinum VSA covered it on my '07 while it was still within the warranty period (mine expired in February). It had the mirror spots (in a weird overlapping rounded square pattern) when I bought the car about a year and a half ago.

Default Replacing the mirror w/ extended mirror?

Have anyone tried replacing the mirror w/ extended mirror onto of the rear view mirror. Mine is doing the streaks and I cannot see anything.

Would something like this work? My concern is the the rear mirror is so thick that these aftermarket extended mirrors wont clamp on. Any thoughts?
