What are Lexus GB up to ?

1st we had the "Ethos" magazine which was full of nothing but rubbish.Then this morning what comes through the letter box but "Ethos Extra" which I might add is just as c**p and rubbish as the previous one !

Why can't it be more like Toyota's "Infront" magazine which has competitions and lots of interesting articles in it !

I read one at the dealers the other day - i don't get one as I bought 2nd hand. Didn't understand it though - it must be aimed at those intelligent, cultured GS and LS drivers

You've only got yourselves to blame! You go and buy a luxurious, prestige car and complain when you are treated like royalty. What did you expect- a night at the dog races? No sorry lads and lasses you are in a different league now. If we have a whip-round we may be able to afford ONE ticket to the summer ball, so who will look better in a tux, Matt or Steve?:o

Is there anyone representing Lexus GB here? If not then why not, Lexus claim they listen to their customers in which case it would make good sense for them to assign one of their staff to use this forum to get feedback and answer some questions on certain things.

Lexus are trying very hard to win over the MB S class and BMW 7 series owners and are spending a great deal of their marketing money on hosting the events offered in Ethos Extra (Ethos Extra isn't really a magazine as much as it is a sales brochure for people with lots of free time and money, in my opinion).

There's no doubt that some Lexus drivers like and make use of the offers in Ethos Extra but seeing as younger people are driving Lexi would it not be a good idea to put some offers which appeal to the younger generation? After all, supposedly younger people splash their money around more on leisure and entertainment than older people. I wouldn't mind being offered tickets to the premieres of some films :D

What does everyone reckon - Ethos Extra is bad altogether or could it be made better by broadening the offerings?

For those who may be offended: I'm not defining old or young, it really does depend on how old or young you feel.

I have read the magazine in Lexus Sheffield and it could do with some stuff for the younger peeps here. Quite a few of us are under 30 so there should be something aimed at this age bracket. Free movie premiere tickets sounds good. I could also do with a ticket for this years ozzfest if anyone from Lexus reads this:smilegrin:

I have received =it chris.. thank you.

Ok My opinion.

Skipped through the page and notice it was all about sport events and flower shows. The layout was sparce and they tried to fill space with pictures.

I think Lexus have tried to make the mag for their upmarket customer and if they want to reach the younger audience then they should put more useful information into the mag.

Lexus should start involving racing into these hosted events as most of Lexus's bread and butter is now coming from the younger audience.

Although i will spot that on the front it does say Events Hosted By Lexus.. so I would not really treat it is a Newsletter sort of mag.

However, Lexus could combine the mag into a tasteful design with dealer events, Lexus news, Lexus sports and Lexus Hosted events into one stylish 20 page mag glossy mag. Also combine maybe Lexus merchandise.

If we had track days would Lexus put these in their refined Ethos Extra?

Maybe post your comments on what you would like to see and we could send our comments to Lexus.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
