I've been driving a lot of cars for a long time and I don't recall any back seat passenger ever complaining of no place to put his or her cup. I don't think this is a big deal, and is certainly not a...

Four months! I had to wait 2 days and was quite apprehensive.
Actually, I was quite fortunate.

It appears to be a new silicone product to be applied by the car owner. As far as coatings go, the best you can do is have Opticoat applied by a licensed professional - this is a different Opticoat...

That must be operator error. I had the same clips on my SC430 for 14 years, and now on my RC, and only once or twice in all that time did the belt cause the clip to break free.

It's pretty complex, but there is a large horizontal painted bar that could be covered. The problem is all the vertical pieces that emanate from it, both up and down. Let's hope the thrown road...

I wanted to get this done on day 1 also, but it takes Xpel and others some time to get their hands on a new model to map it out. I just got mine back this morning and it's spectacular; the installer...
