I have ventilated seats on my IS250 SEL and although I can feel cool air through the base of the seat, I don't seem to feel anything through the backrest. Is this normal ?
I would have thought it would be obvious to cool seat base and backrest.
I'm considering buying a Ct200H and while I understand that the real world mpg figures are more like the 40-50 range I have also heard that the smaller 16" wheels are more economical.
Does anyone have any actual figures real experience related to this rather than anecdotes? Any difference by tyre manufacturer too?
For reference I'm expecting to be doing about 4-5k miles of urban driving and maybe 2k miles of motorway driving per annum so it's urban mpg that's the primary issue.
I've just bought an RX300 too. I've also got a knock going over uneven roads. I've had a waggle of various bits and on mine it looks like the knock is due to worn anti-roll-bar bushes at the rear of the car. They are quite accessible. If you get under the rear bumper you can see the roll bar running across the car held by two tubular rubber bushes. Give the bar a hefty waggle and if you feel any movement then the bushes are worn and need replacing.
I've just ordered a pair from eBay .
The bad news is the back end is caked in mud so I'm going to have to wire brush all the cack from the mounting brackets and bolts before I can apply some wd40 and let it soak in for a few days before I can undo the bolts and replace the bushes.
