  1. It's where one's mobile phone is used as a internet hotspot for the NAV system. Enables live traffic info, parking data etc.. It also allows the car to communicate with the Lexus portal. From the handbook.. The following services are available by connecting the system to Lexus portal site via the internet using a cellular phone or Wi-Fi® network. 􀁺 Online search: New establishments, such as restaurants, bars etc., that are not registered in the system, can be set as a destination. 􀁺 Importing memory points and routes: Establishments that were searched using a personal computer can be set as a destination and can be registered as memory points. 􀁺 Street View: The Street View of the desired location can be viewed. 􀁺 Panoramio: User’s pictures, comments and other information can be viewed on a map.
  2. It is a speed camera alert but only for fixed camera locations, not for vans. I've found it very accurate. I have Connected services set up on my Premium Nav, so I don't know if this it more up to date? I've not found any reference to the alert in any of the handbooks and found no settings in the Nav menus
  3. It was a itch that had to be scratched ... Always wanted a V8 and being supercharged was a bonus. Just wanted something different and the RC is certainly that! Could have gone with the RC-F but been there done that V8 thing, so chose the hybrid and am loving it
  4. Get Carista OBD2, it can do most if not all the customisations, plus diagnostics http://www.caristaapp.com/
  5. Register here and all the service info is listed for your model http://www.lexus-tech.eu/Default.aspx
  6. After 10yrs with Lexus you will find the AMG a very different animal. I absolutely loved my CLS55, what a brute of a car! "A thug in a silk dressing gown" as Clarkson called it. Do let us know how you get on, first impressions and all .....
  7. No mention in my handbooks either and I haven't found any settings on the Nav system to enable/disable the alerts. The alerts sound irrespective of what function is active on the system (Premium Nav), so I'd guess if you have it you would have heard it by now?
  8. From the Gov website "New vehicles with a list price of more than £40,000 If a vehicle has a list price (the published price before any discounts) of more than £40,000, the rate of tax is based on CO2 for the first year. After the first year, the rate depends on the type of vehicle (petrol, diesel, alternative fuel or zero emissions) and an additional rate of £310 a year for the next 5 years. After those 5 years, the vehicle will then be taxed at one of the standard rates (£140, £130, or £0, depending on vehicle type)." https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-vehicle-tax-rates-from-1-april-2017
  9. Have they thoroughly cleaned the hub to disc faces each time? Majority of 'warped' discs are in fact run-out because of corrosion or debris caught between hub and disc. That said after fitting 2 sets of new discs and pads on my SEAT and not curing a vibration I didn't have before fitting, the dealer gave up and checked the service advice only to discover that SEAT recommend replacing the hubs! Cured the vibration....
  10. Yup, I've noticed the EV mode cutting in very quickly and far more frequently since it's warmed up ...
  11. Don't tell me, tell the OP
  12. So, it shows nothing under the Specifications tab but identifies the car has two recalls under the Campaign tab?
  13. Register for access to the tech site http://www.lexus-tech.eu/default.aspx Alot of free info and some you pay for but vehicle spec is free. Once you're in click on the Repair menu and at the bottom of the free info list is Vehicle Specifications. Enter your VIN and the system generates a spec sheet listing all the options and standard equipment fitted to the car. Hopefully this is working on earlier models, it shows everything on my 2016 RC
  14. Get the VIN decoded, surely that will tell what the car left the factory fitted with?
  15. Are those fog lights in the bottom corners, to the left and right of the grill? Apparently so.. "as well as relocated the fog lamps to the corner of the front bumpers, separating them from the ducts."
