I got the fog lights from Nigel through this thread: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/club...group-buy.html

Then I just took the kit to my dealer and had them install it for me, took about 4 hours worth of labor, they're a 100% match to our DRLs too

I'm in the NYC area, there's 631coatings out in Deer Park in Long Island, the guy's name is Carl and he does a very good job. I had him do my full nose clear bra and then the roof wrap, for the roof he charged me $200.

Here's his info:
http://www.631windowtinting.com/

You can also see some of his work in his FB page:
https://www.facebook.com/631Coatings

I'm in no way affiliated with the guy, just thought he does great work so I would recommend him. If you do contact him tell him Jose with the 350 F-Sport sent ya, he'll remember me.

And yes, I think anything above $250 is a rip-off, an experienced installer would take about 1-2 hours at most for this, and as mentioned above by Echelon250, taking the shark fin off and replacing it literally takes 10 mins.

I also went with gloss black
im about to do mine this weekend and i noticed on both sides theres no real seams or guidelines to be cutting or tucking the sides in. what did you do to cut the sides straight?

My installer just followed along the edges carefully with an exacto.

Wraps can be permanent if you leave it on without peeling it off..
They should be changed every 5 or so years.. just to keep a fresh rotation.
You can think of them as colored bras lol.. hiding the oem paint body from debris and everyday gunk.. Wrapping has alot of pros to conserve your factory goodness with no cons!

I was thinking satin black, or possibly matte black.

Thinking of doing my new ES350. I like the look of the panoramic roof but didn't want a panoramic roof. Either a shiny carbon fiber or a shiny black wrap. What should I expect to pay? Also what would look best the carbon fiber or the black? My ES350 is white.
