  1. Better picture with clean lens If I clear the condensation off the rear window I do the camera too.
  2. Lens could do with a bit of a clean
  3. I think dealers are missing a trick with curtesy cars. When you go in for service, treat it as a potential test drive. If you take an IS in for service and book a curtesy car they should give you the option of a GS or similar, the car they would hope to sell you next rather than a CT.
  4. What are wheel spacers?
  5. I got some Bosch aerotwin from Halfords but they are a bit smeary. Would not particularly recommend them.
  6. Likes 1) Exclusivity 2) Styling 3) Refinement Dislikes 1) Flimsy boot lid 2) No spare wheel 3) can't think of another one
  7. Mine does the same. I don't use the flappy paddles. They are a bit daft on a CVT anyway where there are no gears. I suspect they are only there to keep up with the Germans so you can say it's got flappy paddles. May be useful to downshift for an overtake but in normal driving just let the car do its thing and enjoy the ride.
  8. That's when man maths comes into play.
  9. With that sort of driving you should get 45 to 50 mpg around town. Similar on the motorway unless you cruise at 80 mph, in which case it will drop significantly (its a 2.5 liter engine carrying a big battery in the boot). The battery will only do about 1 mile before becoming discharged and is not used at speeds over 40 mph, but if you are slowing down to stop in traffic this will charge the battery up again. That is the whole point of a hybrid, you recover energy to the battery when slowing down and use it again to start up. My average is 46.6 mpg over 15000 miles. All mpg figures are real world not on board computer which is about 5 mpg optimistic.
  10. How do the GS and IS compare in size? Is the GS noticeably bigger or do they feel the same size to park, inside, boot etc? The GS could tempt me in waftyness and build quality, but not sure if I would find it too big. I think the IS is a big car.
  11. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
  12. Similar story, Passed my test in my mums fiesta, then had that for a few years, passed it on to the wife. Escort 1.4 LX Rover 214 SLI Civic Aerodeck 1.5 Accord 5 door Stream (Honda mpv) 2.0 auto Accord tourer 2.4 auto CT advance Current car IS300h advance I sort of miss the CT in a funny sort of way but think the IS is much more like the Accord. I think I should have bought the IS instead of the CT but being the first saloon and rear wheel drive car and not a Honda it was a step to far. I went into the Lexus dealer to test a CT if the salesman had tried to sell me an IS I would probably have thought he was too pushy. What next? Some sort of electric car probably in a few years time.
  13. News just in from Lexus HQ..... They are not dropping the 200T after all, due to lack of server space on the forums! 🙃
  14. Sorry, can't help have no experience of RX. Try posting in the RX section of Lexus Models. I am sure you will get help there.
  15. When and where can you drive for fun these days? During the daily commute its busy traffic and on Sunday's the roads are full of cyclists.
