If anyone wants a Lexus LC500 or LC500h let me know! I work at Lexus Santa Monica and we have the most variety of cars in California due to our high end clients out here in Santa Monica, California. I can send pictures and I can answer anyone that has a question about the car! [/B]

Good question. I am leasing and am not sure I can add paint protection that is not installed by dealer?

I'd have to agree, if it's on a lease, I wouldn't even worry about it. Just keep it washed and fresh looking. I would only spend the money on good paint protection if I would be keeping it for a long enough time.

If you're leasing the LC500, then there's really no need for paint protection like a film. Just wash and wax should be good enough.
Though are some gorgeous pictures, or maybe because you model has no bad angles.

I don't think the LC500 has any bad angles at all. Not just his model haha. But the white will be real forgiving when it comes to spotting swirls and the likes so that's a good thing. Once proper washing etiquette is kept up, you're good to go.

You'd be surprised by how many people are still 100% dedicated to a luxury car they lease. If you're planning to own it for the next 3-4 years then why not enjoy that showroom finish? Always liked my cars looking pristine and this will be no exception.

Some people do it for the added protection against scuffs and what not as well. I've seen a lot of people with Xpel get sideswiped or something in a parking lot, and the scratches only got as far as into the paint protection film, so they were able to peel it off leaving fresh brand new untouched paint behind.

LOL, xpel ain't going to help damage from sideswiped.

Plus why invest in something you're just going to hand back.
