  1. 2 points IMHO :) 1. I was told by both a Toyota and Lexus dealer that servicing a 400h normally only involves the normal work that any conventional car would have.Oil & Filter change etc. They said that there is no servicing required on the Hybrid system. Apparently Toyata are not allowed to touch a Lexus car of any sort. But you can go to any reputable independent garage for a service and get your book stamped without invalidaing warranty. So they said!! Something to do with EEC fair trade I believe.... So I was told!! :) But do check your facts with a second opinion!!! 2. The new improved modern satnav system is a new hardware system and plays dvd's, mp3 etc with a better Satnav screen etc. It may be that the Sat system uses a different format. I tried a Range Rover DVD in my 400H and it wouldn't work. BR Billy 2 points IMHO :) 1.

  2. Hello all, Have just bought a 2001 RX300- Dark met. blue, beige leather, very nice it is too! However the tyres need replacing and the wheels are a bit scabby, so would like to put a set of nice alloys on to go with the tyres. I want to move up a size to 17" or 18" depending on the funds. I cannot find a supplier or make of wheel that will fit onto it. Has anyone out there got any aftermarket wheels which fit? If so can you let me know what make/size they are and where you got them from. Thanks in advance Rik
