It's time to say goodbye to this channel and move next door - my blue NX300h F-Sport arrives on Tuesday evening to replace my black IS300h Lux.

Fingers crossed!

I'll of course pop by; and am always happy to answer any queries about the IS - I warmly recommend it; we just needed something a little bigger.

The NX F-Sport is an absolute thing of beauty. Glad you are not leaving the brand! Hope you enjoy the new car

Very kind both!

I really like the brand, so there was no fear of me leaving really. I considered a facelifted IS and in madder moments even an RC, but the NX seems the sensible family option.

      Is there anyone here who has remapped or chipped the IS 220D for over a year and would like to share their experience?
      Considering getting a remap to 215hk including EGR delete. How is this engine going to handle it for longer periods of time?

      Just joined up having had our first Lexus (coming from years of Mercs & interesting Customer service!) for 4 months.
      I want to get a Dash Cam fitted and have been told by our local dealer (Tunbridge Wells) that they only fit it to the cigarette socket.
      My question is this, should it be wired via the fuse board so that it is powered constantly?  We have had the car scratched several times & would like to be able to pick up movement near the car when parked up.
      The car is great (NX300h Luxury) but there seem to be very jealous people out there.
      Thanks

      I'm not keen on car reviews really but Carwow's do have an interesting aspect of "five likes and dislikes", which are often fun and quirky. 
      If we maybe limit it to three for each model, what are ours?
      For my recently handed over 3rd generation IS, I would say...
      Dislikes
      The boot lid is just awful; a big thing you have to slam down, often with a double dose of elbow on the way. Not premium!
      There are too many similar buttons in the centre, so you really have to look (for example to check you're clearing the windscreen rather than turning on the rear demister).
      The parking sensor on notification on the dash appears on the main display but to one side, leaving it asymmetrical and torturing anyone with even a hint of OCD...

      The turning circle is outstanding; this is a shorter car than most of its rivals and when it comes to U-turns, well, these are U-turns rather than three-point turns...
      One of the USB ports works as an ideal key holder - stick a USB stick on your house keys (and your car key in your pocket), leave them here, and you'll never lose them (and you can play music or transfer routes to your nav while you're at it).
      The change in dials in sports mode is just cool!

      For my NX after 1000 miles, I would say:
      Dislikes
      The auto tailgate is unbelievably slow, meaning I am always far enough away from it upon closing that I need the key to lock the car (rendering the keyless bit pointless). 
      The remote control for the infotainment is too keen to think you are swiping and pinching when you are merely moving. 
      The front pillars are too broad, limiting visibility at corners.

      The nav distinguishes between expressways and regular dual carriageways, which may be useful in unfamiliar locations but in particular shows a fine attention to detail. 
      The adaptive cruise control maintains current speed until you straighten up - this is an excellent detail as it enables you to follow a car on windy roads without attempting to speed back up to the straightaway speed. 
      There is a beautifully finished handrest in the centre console.
