  1. Thank you all for your replies. Have deleted the music app on the i phone and it seems to have solved the issue. If Apple car play is as good as Apple maps, via i phone, i will be very happy.. Lexus have just advised that the Apple car play up-date is now delayed until 4th quarter 2020 on UX model.
  2. Hello. Would like help with the following please. Whilst waiting for Lexus to release the Apple Car Play update. I decided to purchase a new i phone se and use Apple Maps for guidance. There is an issue as follows. When the phone is in the car ,placed in its dash holder with ign on--the media starts playing music and i cannot turn it off or delete it. It is the same music every time and because it is using the car's volume, Apple maps volume cannot be used . It is also playing on the phone when ignition turned off. I think the culprit is something called "Gracenote". Anyone with the same problem or someone with more technical knowledge to advise a solution please? Thank You for responses, Paul
  3. Thank you all for the information. Issue resolved.
  4. Hello, Could UX owners please advise the best cleaning method for the Black wheel arch mouldings and sills. Reluctant to use polish as will leave a "white" residue. Thanks for advice, Paul
  5. Hello John, A few months ago I bought a UX F Sport Takumi . Prior to purchase I was able to take a 48 hour test drive back to back with the F Sport Takumi and the UX Takumi. The UX Takumi had much softer suspension and was very 'wallowy' on bends and roundabouts and was not helped by the non supportive seats. The F Sport was a firmer ride in normal mode but still very comfortable with excellent seats and this confirmed that the F Sport was the model for us. We also found that the Dunlop tyres were much quieter than the Bridgstone and therefore upon delivery the LEXUS Dealer exchanged them for Dunlops. We are very happy with our purchase and would have no hesitation in buying and identical model again. Hope this information is helpful to you John, regards Paul
  6. Hello,. We changed to Dunlops on delivery. They are only available through a Lexus Dealer, who swapped them as part of the deal. So glad we did as they are so quiet. The tyres are, Dunlop (Made in Japan) Size 225/50RF 18 95V SP SPORT MAX Hope this helps Paul PS:- I spoke to Dunlop Technical who advised that these Run Flats can be repaired, with a patch, if punctured across the middle of the tread---which is good news. The Lexus parts dept also stated that they were not expensive at £95 each plus vat.plus fitting.
  7. Hello Nigel, We test drove many Lexus cars prior to purchase. They were all fitted with Dash Cams and they made a terrible noise at start up and shutdown. If your car is fitted with a dashcam then pretty sure this is the noise you are experiencing. Just unclip the dashcam from the windscreen and try it without. Hope this resolves your noise issue. Paul
  8. The UX is available in the UK with only two brands of run flat tyres. Bridgestone and Dunlop. Prior to purchase we had many test drives and found that the Bridgestone were extremely noisy on every UX but the Dunlop very quiet. We placed an order for the UX but requested Dunlop tyres. It arrived with Bridgestone but the Dealer ordered Dunlops and changed the tyres for us. We are very,very pleased with the low road noise. Hope this is the answer to your concerns regarding tyre/road noise. Maybe your local Lexus Dealer has a demonstrator with Dunlops you can compare. Paul
  9. In response to your comments i do not think these used UX's are customers cars for sale. The vast majority are Dealer demonstrators which have reached a certain age and or milage and put on the market at the request of Lexus GB. There are no reports on the Owners Site of any UX customer who is unhappy with their purchase. Maybe i am wrong and owners will respond with negative comments. Thank You, Paul ,
  10. Thank you John for your response.
  11. Have test driven both variants of the UX. The UX Takumi had Bridgestone tyres which we found to be quite noisey. The UX f-sport Takumi had Dunlop tyres which we found to be extremely quiet. Any UX owners experienced tyre noise?
