cool thanks guys.

So these guys are good enough to trust with a new benz S450? I don't want my parents to come and kill me after.

06-IS250 What was the mistake? Bad dealer or you didn't put bra on your IS?

Do you think a clear coat bra is necessary if we don't do a lot of highway driving?

http://www.n-motionauto.net/ <-- you can check out their site and just give them a call (don't know if they still have the second store, i think in richmond, but they have a shop out on boundary), i'd vouch for them too, brought all my cars to them and never had any issues

Cool... just the thread I needed.

I travel from Vancouver to Seattle quite a bit. I am kind of screwed already because there are dead bugs that I can't get rid of on my front bumper and tons of rock chips.

Probably get my car detailed then will go get a clear bra.

yeah i think the richmond shop is gone. something about the building owner not letting them renew the lease or something like that...

update:

I had an appointment for last friday, and I took the car in...everything was cool, but he showed me a car with the clear bra done as an example, and it totally changed my mind.

You could see the pieces everywhere! I was thinking that the only line I would see would be on the hood, cause it doesnt go all the way up. I thought that the fender, bumpers and things, the bra would wrap around so it doesnt show...but this wasnt the case. There were lines everywhere! none of the pieces where exact matches or wrapped around, so it looked bad. So i decided against it...

anyone know any other shops?!

I saw a LS460 clear bra in Regency showroom. It looked OK to me. So who does Regency use to clear bra their cars? Someone can give Regency Lexus a call to find out....
