    Collected the new (old) car today What a difference - its practically new (although its 12 years old) Absolutely spotless, cant find a mark on it whatsoever. The owner has only had to refurb the wheels and even they have been done really well. 25k on the clock and it feels new - quiet and pulls like a tractor. Sunroof is a very nice option and I have already got used to the leather seats - I thought that they were cream but they are a dusky grey which is quite unique and goes well with the colour of the car which is a light blue colour. Loving it so far

    We stay in Bishopton which was 2nd worst hit in the UK this week with 45cm of snow and deeper drifts. The RX350 might be a soft roader with no proper 4WD system but it was surprisingly good. Never got stuck once despite drifts over the bonnet. I ended up doing mercy missions for snowbound villagers getting bread, milk and medicines. Also did a few runs to local hospitals transporting staff. Obviously the Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S helped because I passed several stuck 4x4’s including XC90s, Ravs, CRVs, X-trails, etc. Also took the GS450H out which was awesome (also has Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S). The only thing it wasn’t great at was towing people stuck in ditches but that’s to be expected with no diff lock. This was down the sheltered bit at the side of the house.

    Mods - please - can this image be removed? As a person that spends hours detailing their own garage queen, I find this picture distressing!!!!

    It's snowy here today. Nasty snow; ice, snow, compacted snow, slush. Lots of stuck cars, spinning cars etc. We were both fine. Nokian Weatherprrof on hers, Michelin Latitude Tour HP - both all season. We both felt safe and secure. Cars were getting stuck on the slightest of inclines. I felt I could have stopped on a hill and started again, easily. It felt good. And safe.

    @Big Rat thanks Paul! Time to set some nee challenges for myself. Been at my current job just over 4 years now so the time has come.. my love and loyalty to the brand made me give it a try and ended up getting it! One of the big things I pushed on George the centre manager was that I could bring a more connected and personal experience for Lexus owners especially the F owners. Any mumbles and grumbles you tell me and if your after a product also give me a message. We both want to Lexus to expand and we both want Lexus Stoke to be the best centre in the UK. Look forward to meeting you all sooner in the year. Stay Safe. C

    This is one thing i miss about my BMW. It turned off the auto wipers when you locked the car, so no worry about this happening.

    Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S is the winter tyre I’ve been using for about 5 years on everything from SLK280 to X-trails and a 272bhp V6 Touareg. They can be used all year round and turn any car into a beast in the snow, handle fine on warm summers day but make a huge difference to grip on snow ice and cold greasy roads.

    You can replace the bottom part of the oem unit for a second double din screen, which allows you to add a apple carplay /android auto system. Probably cost you £600+ depending on the system you choose but it is fantastic. Voice controlled Google maps, Spotify, oem steering wheel control etc etc.

    Test drove the Alfa QF last month (just came back from the Alfa museum in Milan and was itching to have a go), the dealer looked my car up and said the trade value was 21K. As I paid 22k for it last year, was rather happy with that! The Alfa is way beyond my budget currently but my god it's a cracking bit of kit!

    Doohhhhh!!! I was responding to the post above and mis-read ' Quantity' for 'Quality' !!!!!! sorry, I'll get me coat and be gone soon... But the Amount of fuel in the tank is gonna be electro-mechanically detected ie a float on a pivoted arm or rising guide bar is gonna adjust a potentiometer to report back to the gauge electrically. paul m.

    When yo watch the video he's timing the lap using Auto sport+ and complaining about the shift program. If he'd gone into expert mode then it lets the rev limiter get hit and shifts faster

    @ no one in particular They had previously replied saying they couldn't tell me and had sent in a technical request. To whom, I have no idea, it wasn't stated. Although it would be nice to ask the engine designer I feel that is an unlikely outcome. The only other way to be sure is obtain and understand the compression figures, volume of combustion and spark timing. Feel free to research. I'll just got with the answer to my query regarding clarification of the various manuals and brochures. Failing that, if one wishes to fill in blanks, make up filler facts and arrive at the answer they wanted to hear.....feel free. Your money, your car. :) Don't shoot the messenger.

    They've basically stated the one option that they can be certain will not cause an issue with that engine. The legal dept has sanctioned the reply, arse covering.. Cynical, me??

    You have to remember that Lexus in the UK are just a marketing department. They basically looked in the owners manual and quoted the relevant statement.

    Welcome @C.B, you'll find all the help you need on this forum. Good folks on here that will help you out, a real car community. I recently brought an F too and I'm in love with it, not drove it much because of the weather recently but I can't wait get it back out. The infotainment system is the only thing that feels dated but it's function and that's what matters. Nothing an aux cable can't sort. Best option on the Market and I've recently just landed a job as a sales rep at Lexus Stoke and I start on the 10th so I'll keep my ears to the ground for you. Do you have any specific specs? C

    @Wellsey Ricky yes it looks good sounds great and drives well........... but would you with your own money.... I've read a fair bit about them on forums here and in the states and the dealer response to all the problems they have of which there are a fair few is..... they all do that sir, or that's a characteristic of the car sir, the latest one is suspension related. Apparently the latest cars ride much higher, the stance is very different and the dealer response is....... It's new give it a few thousand miles and the suspension will reduce the height itself.......... oh really really ! If there is a spring specification change just say so, same old Alfa dealers then by the sound if it. 🐀

    You only need heated washer nozzles if your screenwash is rubbish. The original Toyota stuff is rated down to -70 degrees so you shouldn't have any issues.

    Had one do exactly that today. Didn't even look up before crossing and then just gave me the finger when he noticed I was about 3 feet away from him. Truly bizarre.

    Wiper motor circuits ( front anyway ) are normally 'fused' with a miniature self resetting circuit breaker type fuse. Not sure if they are on your particular model but this is so if the wipers are in fact frozen to the windscreen then the motor will draw a large amount of current trying to shift them and if it was a normal fuse the fuse would blow and then after the ice had thawed the wipers would not work! But with the circuit breaker the high current flow trips the breaker and after a few minutes it cool and resets.
