  1. Whilst I do agree have to say tpms does work and in my case potentially saved me from something worse I was planning to go on a long trip over the weekend and if the tpms hadn't gone off it's likely I wouldn't have seen the screw. Could have been potentially nasty with whole family in the car
  2. Seems to be a similiar thing on the IS and my son's Golf, all of which don't have gutters. Doesnt affect the RX though as the roof rails stop it.
  3. You don't need anything massive. I generally use it scrunched up as its quite grabby. Poundstretcher and the likes do it too.
  4. Have you ever cleaned interior glass with a normal microfiber and realised there's always some form of smear left behind? I have and it drives me nuts! Ive used a lot of glass cleaners all with the same, and then different microfiber cloths. Some are obviously better than others at stopping the smearing but they all do it to some extent. So, the worst for smearing is "Astonish Glass cleaner with Anti Fog". Its so bad it almost makes you blind in the sunlight! Well anyway, I picked up a "CleanIt Ultra Glass polishing cloth" from Home Bargains for 39p or something and used a normal microfiber to apply the Astonish glass cleaner. It left so many smears even after 5 minutes on one glass!! Pulled the Home bargains glass cloth out and gave it a quick buff and voila! Smears are gone! Highly recommend it and its made my glass cleaning routine much easier and faster!

    UX in Teesside today

    I think it is going to be offered in 4WD on the 300h but it'll be similiar to the NX/RX rather than being full 4WD at all times.
  6. Turn the unlock in park function on and it's dead easy
  7. They don't have individual readouts. They're just there to let you know tyre pressure is low. I actually had my first puncture in 15 years yesterday and the tpms on my RX came on. I have the individual readouts so knew which one it was and found a large nail in there. Luckily it was repairable and Lexus did it FOC.
  8. I heard it's starting at like £33k. The US prices are 33k dollars. I wouldn't be surprised if next year you end up getting £5-6k discount
  9. Urm your argument is pretty flawed 1) Worse economy? Since when? The ES is tested on the new WLTP system, not the old one that the GS was tested on. 2) It actually has more space than the GS in the back. It is like a limo and some people might want that sort of thing. 3) Also the materials aren't exactly cheap. The reviews are favourable. Lets not forget the GS has some pretty bad materials as well. 4) The Pound has dipped hence the prices....., not to mention inflation Also, if you've driven a new LS, you would know that the thing is deadly quiet, more so than any other LS before it and on par with the competition
  10. You have to hold it down. it should open regardless of the other door being open.
  11. If he wanted a 4RX, why would he get a 17 plate? They came out in 2015. A 65 plate would be the better, and more sensible option.
  12. Its the same engine as the 340i. Will be 340hp, M40i engine. 0-60 in 4.6s. The interior will be BMW based with Toyota badging. Steering wheel is different but rest of it is similiar.
  13. If you get the premier youll get all the kit including cooked seats etc. However you also get air suspension which may be problematic in the future. The Advance spec has been the best value and it comes with most things apart from HUD. 18" wheels can be fitted to all RXs apart from Premier as I suspect it would interfere with the air suspension setup. The ML is marginally better than the standard sound systems. I didn't bother with it in my 4RX because the standard system sounds as good as the 3RX ML
  14. Lexus has randomly released a flagship Teaser which pretty much shows nothing
  15. £35150 starting price which is cheaper than the cheapest 520i. 60.1mpg on the new cycle which isn't bad. Pricing is cheaper than most spec for spec
  16. Very interesting concept and the quotes are ridiculously cheap if you do low mileage. You basically pay up front for being insured for parking, and then pay per mile you drive. They send you a tracker in the post which you plug into the OBD port. 5 star defaqto rated too!
  17. Sounds like it must have had some kind of water ingress like other before you bought it and it hadn't been properly sorted out. The other guy had similiar issues. Crackling noises in the dash, smoke near the pedals etc I would imagine its been in an accident at some point in its life as these issues are almost unheard of in a Lexus and I would certainly question the vehicle's prior history.
  18. A bit late to the party but I think it could also be due to lack of dealers. There aren't as many in the UK compared to German brands which seem to be in every city big or small. I mean Harrogate has bloody Audi! Also worth remembering that equivalent BMWs etc are cheaper to buy for a basic spec. Many of the m3s etc which aren't demos are woefully specified. Then there are the lack of demos. Each dealer only seems to get 1 at a time or maybe 2. But there always only seems to be 1 F car rolling on the road rather than sitting in the showroom. Last time I went to a BMW dealer it was pretty much when the M2 had come out and they had 3 demos and 2 being prepared for being demos. How many dealers currently have an RCF demo?

    What about this colour?

    I presume it just washes off right? Because thats a hell of a way to write off a car otherwise
  20. Furniture clinic leather repair kit is good. You do have to mix the colour yourself. Or just go to a upholsterer. I was quoted £80+VAT for a full lower bolster reupholstered in genuine Merc Artico. I can imagine they can do a pretty good job with real leather too

    Lexus demos no wing mirrors

    Not to mention it'll probably be a lot more expensive if some man in a van decides to plough it down whilst driving. I believe Audi actually debuted the technology first but they didn't put it into production as fast as Lexus did
  22. Depends on what I've left in there 🤣
  23. If nothing else works you need to find someone to do a ozone shock treatment Or try a decent odour bomb like Bilt Hamber that actually works
  24. Don't really see the point because from the one on the 4RX it just does what it wants to. Revs keep moving up and down unless flooring it or coasting.
