Already have a sizable paint chip when my passenger opened the door scraping the sidewalk. The doors are so low it's easy to do.
Went to the Lexus dealer today to buy a bottle of Fire Agate Pearl touch up paint. Turns out it's a new color, and it's not in stock - in fact you can't even order the touch up paint yet since there is no part number in the system yet. The dealer here is going to look into it; marvelous. Fortunately, the primer is still left on the door so the chip shouldn't rust while Lexus gets its act together to supply the paint.
Have picked up my first chip, on the bumper, which now can be seen quite easily as the car is white and the chip is BLACK! Contacted my Lexus dealer here in the UK and have been told that there is no touch up paint available for the CT's yet? Will just have to wait I guess.

Your dealer should have touch up paint for Starfire Pearl (077) color, as it is same color as models such as IS, ES.

Dealers just don't have touch up paint (yet) on certain new colors for CT
Thanks for that, have ordered it online via a 3rd party, you just give them the paint code (plate inside the passenger door tels you this), the registration, the name of the colour and they mix it, 100% match or your money back. Can't ask for more than that, so will be touching up my nasty chip on the bumper next weekend.

As for Lexus, here in the UK they are not great with any of the accessories (I include touch up paint here). They wanted to charge £488 for the illuminated sills, I bought them from Sewell and imported them and still didn't get anywhere near this amount. You just get the feeling they are not very interested in this stuff (based on my experience with my Lexus Dealer).
