  1. We have had our CT (Premium/Tech Pack) for 2 weeks now. On the whole very pleased, Wife wouldn't drive my old Infiniti Q50 as it was "too big". (But she did use to drive my Infiniti EX30, and even our old Lexus RX300, go figure). Anyhow my only comments about the CT. I miss not having full leather and power seats. The road noise is noticeable, I think partly because you don't have the engine noise. The ride is quite firm, even compared to my Infiniti which was a Sport model on much larger, lower profile wheels.
  2. Thanks. I still getting used to driving a hybrid. The lack of engine noise is a bit disconcerting but I am slowly getting the MPG up.
  3. Hi. One reason I got the CT was because I can get the dog in the boot and take her out for country walks and on holiday. Does anyone recommend a mesh/grid dog guard that will stop her jumping over the back seats? Thanks.
  4. Here. Excuse the weeds on the drive.
  5. Hi after 7/8 years driving Infiniti's I am back in the Lexus Fold, and collected my CT200H last week. I got my first Lexus 18 years ago, an IS200 S, then had an IS200 SE, then an RX300. As the family has all grown up and pretty much moved out, changes in work means I don't need a large car. Before getting the CT I test drove the NX, but it was just too large for my needs, so hopefully I have made a good choice.
  6. Well got the EX. First thoughts: Yes it is a fair bit smaller than the Lexus It's much quicker, and smoother through the gears Less space in the back and boot So much more kit Quality is great Media pack etc I need to get my head round tomorrow. Then I'll post some piccies then it'll be so long.....
  7. Normski, I viewed actual car last night. Will hopefully collect on Friday. A few things did strike me when inspecting it last night. 1) it is a fair bit smaller than the Lexus. 2) No spare wheel at all. In the rear though where you might think go find a spare is a huge Bose amp thingy for the stereo!

  9. Hi Normski. The car is Granite Exterior with light grey leather interior. I know what you mean about the boot, it is a smaller car than my current RX. However in the sole person in it 90% of the time, and it's not as if I go camping or anything. Hopefully pick it up Wednesday as I haven't seen actual car as its not at my local dealership.
  10. Well the deed is done. Deposit paid for an Infiniti EX 30d GT Premium. Should arrive Tues/Weds next week.
  11. The spec is out of this world. Looking at a GT Premium model. Taking missus to look at one then will make the final decision.
  12. The EX I'm looking at cost the same as I paid for my RX but is so highly spec''d nothing so far with such low mileage compares.
  13. After 10 yrs of Lexus ownership, 6 of which were with my RX300 it's time to move on. After flirting with the usual Bimmers, Audis, Mercs I think I'm about to plumb for an Infiniti. I just don't like the new shape RX so that discounted another Lexus. So tomorrow I might just throw caution to the wind and go for an Infiniti EX 30D Premium. The only car I've come across more highly spaced than my RX. Views??
  14. I struggled, when I hand an IS 200. I ended up with Thule roof bars, and then relatively cheap bike racks from Decathalon. Must admit didn't enjoy driving with bikes on the roof, though it did mean I got jumped to the front of the queue at Centre Parcs
  15. This happened when my key snapped. Repeatedly trying to start the car drained the battery. I had to get a jump start and use a spare key. What other say about the transponder needing to be near the ignition is true also.
