lexus has applique's (sp?) for the car that they place on certain parts of the car that may receive more scuffing than normal (like on top of the rear bumper/hatch). maybe you can ask the dealer if they have something like that for door edges?
I've posted several posts in past weeks about the molding. That has been a huge issue with me. So thanks for the link.Lexus has this body side molding - see link
2011 CT200h: Body Side Mouldings - Coming Summer 2011 Lower Door Moulding Set - is custom-fit to provide sleek visual texture to the vehicle's exterior appearance and can help to protect it as well. Shaped perfectly to fit the contours of the vehicle
Well, now it sinks into my head. $179 for the molding in that link is just the PARTS cost, not incl. installation. So the $350 the salesman quoted includes the installation.

In any case, the price is WAY below what the salesman at Sewell said a local body shop could do it for (he said it'd be about $350).
