  1. I presume the fuel was correct in the end then? Any further news on it then. I'm interested to find out what it was
  2. Quite unusual, bad batch of fuel can cause this though. I remember a friend who fairly recently put some fuel into his brand new BMW. Fuel had condensation in it, the car wouldn't start, spluttered and was recovered. Fuel removed, fresh batch put in and it started
  3. Agree with the kick plates. They're quite a poor design in my opinion and not very hard wearing. With regard to the screen, the anti-glare coating rubs off no matter what you use. Even a damp MF cloth seems to mark it. In the end I removed the screen and used an alcohol based cleaner to remove the entire coating and it looks perfect with barely any difference to screen viewing
  4. I would probably go for the newest model you can get. The infotainment system was much improved with the facelift too. Worth considering.
  5. Ive switched it off, prefer to do it manually in the RX Nowhere near as good as the one in my son's Merc.
  6. I had a 2012 F-Sport and thought it had the best balance of harshness to handling. Felt the others leant too much around roundabouts. Hence, the 4th gen I have now is also an F-Sport
  7. At this time of year I cant be bothered waxing the car so Ive been using spray on rinse off solutions Stumbled across Turtlewax dry and shine, just spray on a wet car and rinse off, will leave it beading very well. Must say it seems to be working on the reversing camera too
  8. The only thing I can expect to cause and to trigger apart from faulty wheel sensors or abs sensors are the tyres. When the vehicle is very new, we're talking less than 1000 miles, the tyres will be fairly fresh and won't have their optimum grip levels. 3 months in I'd expect that to be unlikely however Are we 100% sure it's the abs? Or is it pulsing of the brake pedal?
  9. Have to say a lot of these comments are off topic. Stick to 2016 RX tyres please as most of the suggestions arent available in 235/55 r20 size
  10. Vehicle itself is recent but the mechanicals are 4 years old now. Most likely I'd expect a wheel sensor to be a bit oversensitive.
  11. So after Lexus released their EV concept LF-30 it appears they will reveal their first EV next month No idea what it is but the UX300e nameplate was patented in Europe a year ago, so most likely we're looking at a fully electric EV In the meantime, enjoy some fancy pictures and videos of the LF-30 with 536hp, 700nm of torque and 0-60mph in 3.8s. They're also looking into wireless charging for a more luxurious experience. Unlikely it'll make production but we'll see:
  12. Most likely the auto dimming feature is turned off Will be in the screen menu somewhere where youll also find contrast and brightness settings
  13. Think it looks more similiar to the RC than an IS. The lights are straight up from the RC. On the 2 series GC and 8 series, it appears they've copied the Jag XE/e-pace
  14. Too hard to tell unfortunately. In theory it should be a simple software update. Whether Lexus offers it to owners of cars which don't have it is a different story. They might not, purely because it's a reason to upgrade to a newer model
  15. Ah so perhaps android auto and carplay are not too far away. They might be brought out as a 2020 MY update
