  1. I believe the next NX is going to be a PHEV too. It should be released in the next 3-6 months
  2. Well I mean it's been a few months since the UX300e was revealed and is actually available to order from March onwards. And it comes with Android auto so it seems you're slightly behind in terms of what's actually going on
  3. There is a new IS coming next year, and yes, it is RWD but is expected to grow slightly to BMW 3 series and upcoming C class size
  4. The Michelin LTX premier is an all season tyre which is available in 4RX size. However, its £260 each. Ive had the Bridgestone duelers on from factory and theyre also very quiet. No complaints bar the wear rate and only about £150 each The fronts were gone after 16k miles, The rears are on 4mm at 30k miles currently, the same as the new fronts. So they tend to last anywhere between 15k-20k on the front which is reasonable for the weight of the vehicle.
  5. Road tax will be in the 5th year on that particular plan so will be £450. From year 6 that will no longer apply and itll pay the £140 or however much the standard rate is. I suppose you could say that for anything though. Is £120 on a bottle of Aventus Creed worth it compared to another fragrance at £40-50?
  6. On most deals they appear to be built into the monthly payments though For example the NX300h F-Sport Takumi Pack/Panroof deal is £4263 + 47 x 453.70 inc vat. Road tax is fully included.
  7. I also had one recently as a courtesy car when my RX went in for service. Was pretty pleased with it, handled better than i thought it would whilst retaining a lot of comfort. I think people are getting hung up too much on the £40k list price. Pretty much all cars are on lease nowadays and its built into the monthly payments. Additionally, the competition are similiarly priced anyway
  8. Ive had 3 RX's none with any sort of waterpump/coolant issues
  9. Should be a little compass in the corner of the screen which you can click to change the view of the satnav. Most likely its just being tapped by accident or something
  10. The easiest way to remove is use a hairdryer and dental floss, then remove the glue with some tar/glue remover. Should take less than 5 minutes in total. No entirely sure if it would help though as usually the people targeting cats will probably know which cars they need to target
  11. Yep theres no difference between the GS-F mirror and standard GS-F Also the IS and pre-facelift RC have the same mirrors
  12. Spotted a Red Lexus RC-F today on the M61/M62. Reg was AMA70N i think Looked absolutely epic with what appeared to be aftermarket wheels. Anyone on here?
  13. Although most manufacturers do recommend winter tyres which removes the problem during the winter which is when it happens most.
  14. My RX did it too. Essentially a car wants to go straight when the accelerator is pressed even if the steering wheel is turned full lock. On the RX the front tyres had <3mm tread, bought new tyres and it resolved
  15. Well they do it's called the UX300e and order books are open so.....
  16. I think the ES looks brilliant in F-Sport guise. Remember that you can actually add the Takumi pack to the F-Sport in order to get you the best of both worlds. Having said that, for what you are looking for in terms of comfort, the Takumi will probably be the better option
  17. C Currently it is cheaper to run an EV not taking cost of purchase into account. I can imagine as more people jump on the bandwagon, the government will start hiking road tax as well as duty on electricity
  18. Car is running fine. Starts up when left for 3 days so not too concerned at the moment. Will probably get it fixed at next service
  19. Not really laid attention to it. Once the AA guy came and charged the battery I wouldn't say it's any different to be honest. I'll probably get the car priced up for a new battery at the local dealer. See what they say but I'm expecting around £300
  20. Thats a gone battery without even getting a voltmeter out. Mine just did the same thing after 6 years. Its highly unlikely to be an alternator
  21. So, 6+ years later, the first issue arises with the IS300h. Ours is a 63 plate, so one of the early ones Admittedly, one that I diagnosed before the car was even started by the way the door mirrors opened. Yep, you guessed it, duff battery. AA man recharged and car is fine. It was left for 2 weeks as we were on holiday. A relatively simple and cheap fix so Im very pleased to be perfectly honest.
  22. Worth remembering that the design is actually from 2009. The facelift was just that. Lexus do very little to the actual vehicle apart from quick nip and tucks
  23. Mine is still smooth. However, I do remember there was a recall involving the rear hatch and ECU as well as the motor so perhaps it's related.
  24. I think it's in the dials menu not the large screen menus. The sensitivity is much better on max it opens up very well
