  1. NX Tyres

    Michelin Cross Climates are considered to be the best option for any car for summer use but with good winter capabilities. Michelin do not consider them a all season tyre, but a lot of reviewers treat them as such. They are now made for the NX, but are currently out of stock in the UK, but due in again soon. They are not cheap, but seemingly are highly ratted by those who know about these things. Honest John (Telegraph) recommends them, also Auto Express 1502 issue (this month) for best all season tyre.
  2. Lexus Nx True Mpg

    I don't know how you can achieve those figures, please share. My average since owning my NX is 33.1, which roughly is 35 in summer and 31 in winter. My last fill up I managed just 27 due to the cold snap. The best I have ever achieved from a tankful is 39.7, With a good run getting near to 40. I think it must be due to the roads you drive, or flat countryside with few hills on A and B roads. I do a regular motorway journey of 150 miles and at a constant 70mph I get no better than 38. I admit I do a lot of very short journeys with the car barely warming up, so I know I am below national average. Some tips would be good. :)
  3. Looks a good idea, and the cost is minimal. Or just stick your keys in the fridge, a microwave oven or a tin box. All would be enough to block out any threat from what I understand.
  4. Sat Nav Update

    Yes, silly money for just a software update. Taking the Micky really. It's the last time I will have sat nav, it's just a rip off, I will stick to either Tom Tom or a freebie on my phone. If you use it daily then fair enough, but I use it less than once a month.
  5. NX Tyres

    Cross climates are now out of stock nationwide. I wonder if they only supplied a small quantity to see how they went and have sold so well they have now all gone. I will have to check over the next few weeks to see if they come in stock again. I was very tempted but just did not move quick enough. :(
  6. NX Tyres

    I see now you can get Michelin Cross Climates for the NX. It's not been an option before as they were not made in 225 60 R18 size. So although the most expensive premium tyre at £180+ they are a serious consideration. Although the other Michelin option of Latitude Tout HP are still a very good tyre, but about £40 cheaper. The Goodyear Efficient grips are of course also a very good all weather tyre. Spoilt for choice.
  7. First NX Clean

    Nice job, the car looks brilliant. I do like the protection strips. They don't look right on some cars but on the NX they look good.
  8. Am I young and urban?

    Customer demand to switch it off? Seems like a backward step to me. They could have given you the option to switch it on/off. That would keep everyone happy.
  9. Side Protectors

    I think they look quite nice on the NX.
  10. NX Three likes/dislikes

    I think that whenever cars are offered with cloth seats, and leather as an option, the sales are so low thee manufactures prefer to add them as standard in most premium cars. I think it is fair to say that most people prefer leather, but not all. I quite like them, but would not buy them as an option, my wife prefers cloth. I think the seats are very comfortable, in fact it is one of the best features of the NX. Sorry to hear some people don't get on with them. I suppose we are all different.
  11. NX Tyres

    The Michelin winter tyres that fit the NX are the Latitude Alpin LA2's. I think you would need to buy the wheels too, as most (if not all) tyre centres won't swap tyres on one set of rims. Or so I have been told. So if you go down the winter tyre route you need to budget for a set of wheels too. Oddy enough the NX winter wheels that Lexus sell are 17", not 18" which the NX has as standard. Not sure why they change the wheel size. Or you could go down the 'all season' route and get Latitude Tour HP which are much better in the winter than summer tyres, but maybe not quite a good in the summer as summer tyres. By all accounts they are a good all round tyre. That is what i will probably do when I need to change mine, as I live in the south so don't really need full winter tyres. If I lived in areas of higher snow coverage I would get winter wheels/tyres.
  12. Panoramic Sliding Glass Sunroof

    I have one and I like it a lot. I close the blind on a hot sunny day, but when it is overcast and cloudy it makes the interior much brighter. My grand children love it when they can see the stars at night or the moon. Maybe that is why in the USA they call them moon roofs. :)
  13. Sat Nav Update

    Had my car serviced today and asked about updating my Sat Nav and was told it was about £200. I don't use it that much and it is rare that anything is wrong, so i will leave it at least another year.
  14. NX 1000 mile review

    I didn't realise that either. Thanks. :)
