I have cracks all in my grille b/c of the poor plastic quality. I also have problems with rock scratching on the paint.. Is it just too thin...??

LexusRex - As far as I know, the reason the IS paint chips so easily is because Lexus is adhering to new environmental standards, which requires auto manufacturers to use special kinds of paint formula, that's suppose to be more environmental friendly. Which is why Lexus paints are softer compared to the typical standard paint use on cars several years ago. Several other car manufacturers are adhering to this standard set by the EPA.

About the plastic grill... no idea... did a rock hit it? Did you try to mess with it? Since its cracked, it'll be a good excuse to change the grill to some aftermarket brands, such as Altezza grill or RMM grill... etc.

You guys can thank the environmentalist Democrats (Gore) for trying as hard as they can to ruin the car as we know it! You know what's next if they continue their destruction? An electric engine for your IS.

UMM.....alright. I guess I'll trade my paint chips for better air quality, too. I've got 13 to trade in. When do I get my better air?
