I picked up a used F and it had BP emblems. Did they ever add them at the dealer or was the previous owner nice enough to add them for me.

It could've been one of two things: 1) the previous owner had them on and didn't bother removing before selling/trading the car or 2) it might not be black pearl from Lexus, but rather a PlastiDip version (much cheaper, but slightly off color than the OEM black pearl). I negotiated with my dealer to have them installed when I purchased the vehicle, and they were kind enough to not tack on an additional charge. It's a nice look compared to a flat black or even satin black from PlastiDip, and adds a nice level of gloss and darkened look to the front grille and rear trunk.

Yea I know it's not plastidip. I've used it in the past and it looks different from the BP. Thanks for the help. It's nice to know the previous owner appreciated details like that.

That looks pretty good, a lot better than plasti dip IMO. I might try this on the grille and emblem.
