I have owned my black Onyx for several months and from several Lexus dealers and different body shops I can not get a 100% consensus as to whether or not the black Onyx is a clear coat. I have had several Lexus body shops give me conflicting answers. Does't make that much difference but would like to know. Some top rated Lexus body shops take real strong stands but with conflicting results as to the Onyx being a clear coat. Some yes and some no. Really confusing. Even contacted Lexus and they too have come back with several different opinions.
