Just to add to above: when you create your account, make sure you put in your ClubLexus user ID or whatever they need ... it has been a while since I setup my Sewells account or I could be more specific.

Sewell's price is $96 plus shipping which was $12 for me.

Install directions suggest plus 60 degrees. I thought I'd have to wait 'til spring since I live in MA, but last week we had a plus 50 and sunny day, so I put my stargazer black car outside to soak up the sun and got the moldings on. So far, so good.

The black you are seeing is the molding itself. It's not from the other vehicle.

After spending thousands on the RX what is another $100 and change to protect it - they definitely protect the doors - it only takes 1 door slam and you end up with a door dent which I know first hand can be repaired paintlessly (assuming no paint damage) at the tune of a $100.00. To me this is a no brainer and I have new RX on order and it will definitely have the moulding installed before I take possession.

Good to know that these moldings are helping. IMO, the molding, aesthetically, takes away the clean look of the door. I'll take the risk.

Just ordered from Sewell. After one week already had several marks on the right after my wife parked at the school where she teaches - certainly appeared intentional and she always parks away from the crowd.

I just saw them on ebay from a lexus oem parts dealer for 92 dollars, with no tax. How difficult to install them yourself??

I'm thinking to putting them on my new RX350. It already has door edge guards, so can it be applied with these already on the vehicle? If so, how difficult?

Much of the following thread will be of interest, however, post #4 I believe answers your question for you:

Surprisingly, i always have a parking spot.. and exercise.
i chuckle everytime i see drivers waiting idle 5-15 minutes for a parking space that is SO near where they're going.
Same hear. I park far away from everything and get great exercise. But I do like the look of the door guards. Adds something. All parking spaces should be at least a foot bigger.

Doesn't work. Go to a quite mall after the holidays, park far away from everyone, and by the time you come back you will find cars parked all around you for no apparent reason with the lot still fairly empty elsewhere.

I know that with our Camry the doors get dinged above the moldings.So I will keep parking out in Left Field and hike to my Office. My RX looks cleaner without side door moldings.

Actually, it really does work for me. Once in awhile that happens, but I am two plus years with virgin sides to my car. Knock wood

Perhaps I never parked far enough away.
