The CTS-V owner called me out again to take a look at his RX350. It was pretty dirty but the paint was decent. Not too many scratches and swirls but there seemed to be a layer of oxidation on the paint causing it to look really dull. The interior was pretty clean for the most part except the mats and carpet. Not much could be done about the red slushy stains on the rear carpets but all the mats were thoroughly cleaned and I think they came out pretty good.

Onto the pictures! White is a hard color to capture but I think the after reflections are much deeper and the paint seems more alive. Also the white pearl paint pops much more.
