No, I did not. I did some rooting at paint supplier sites and they say the paint code is the same, yet they offer at least 2 variants for Lexus:
"Formula: U7-64005-Q Ultra 7000 - Basecoat Color: Flint Mica
Formula: B7-64005-Y Ultra 7000 [New] - Basecoat Color: Flint Mica ( Verified Lexus Rx 330vin 40)"
So maybe the basic paint code is indeed the same, but the metallic additives or other aspects are different?
It was pretty obvious that the 2 GS's and the LS all looked exactly the same--all three parked in slightly different areas of the lot--and 1 GS inside the showroom, while the 2 RX's both looked identical to each other, but clearly different from these others. I am very perplexed, so if anyone knows automotive paint well enough to offer any insights, please elucidate!
