  1. I recently changed all four tyres on my NX and I am really pleased with them. I can't remember what was on the car previously, I think that there was more than one make though. The Michelin are spot on, the ride is excellent and they are certainly not 'noisy' See the link to my original post above.
  2. Brilliant! Thank you John, (Britiprius) much appreciated. Thank you too John (royoftherovers) Unfortunately I can't put my hand to the manual, I think that her indoors may have put it somewhere 'tidy'😀
  3. Many modern cars have an option/switch whereby the angle of the dipped headlight beam can be adjusted. This is generally used to lower the angle of the beam when you have say a full complement of five passengers and a boot full of luggage causing the dipped headlights to be too high, thus dazzling on-coming cars. Anyone know if such an option is on the NX. If there is, I haven't found it yet! Many thanks.
  4. glynp1, did you see my post of December 20th in this thread? It would have been worth a look before you went to Lexus for your update.
  5. Following a number of recommendations from fellow members, I have replaced all four of my tyres with a set of Michelin Cross Climate's. I have to say that I am really very pleased that I did. I have had them for just over one month now and the difference over what was on the car previously is quite amazing. A big thank you to all who provided input. Happy New Year to everyone.
  6. Merry Christmas to everyone. Have yourselves a great time, be safe and drive carefully. Sincere good wishes to all you wonderful, helpful members. Best Wishes too for a Happy and healthy 2020.
  7. Have a look at this site Gareth, they are amazingly helpful people. Also have a read of this thread, it's not very long
  8. I have just done a 30 mile round trip on A and B roads and my car is showing as 39.7 mpg. I drive at the relevant speed limit where possible and appropriate. I am more than happy with what I get from mine.
  9. Just had a look at my system and can see the following............ Map version - 02-34-50 (2014-07-0) Software - VC181006 Data Update - 130379186007576 Toyotamaps have confirmed my setup as 13CY
  10. Hello Phil, thanks for this. I have the standard system with the dial control. I will have a look in the morning to see if I can spot the version that is on there at the moment.
  11. My car went in today for service and MOT. All went well and passed OK. However, they discovered a very small oil leak at the timing cover. the car is going back in for the work to be done on December 12th. I took advantage of the two year warranty option, I'm very glad I did. The cost is, so they tell me, £1537.24!!! The warranty has paid for itself already. EDIT: Would it REALLY cost that much to cure a small oil leak????? Having thought about it, I suppose if they have to strip out a lot of bits to get at it, this could result in added costs.
  12. Hi again Derek, I had a couple of updates to the firmware carried out on the two IS's that I have owned and there was no charge on each occasion. Apparently the firmware is what runs the in-car system. When I spoke to Lexus today, they said that when the car is in for service which mine was today, they said that they always check what version is installed and then update as necessary. When I had the IS I was able to check the versions to see if I was up-to-date. Now I've got the NX I haven't been able to do that, don't know why though. That's really why I asked the question, to see if I could verify the situation. What year maps did you get for £55.00? That is certainly a more realistic price for a map update. I have been in lengthy correspondence with Leus regarding the cost of their map updates, I have even sent them links to websites where updates for other makes are pitched around the £50.00 mark. All, they say is that they will refer the matter up but I have never heard anymore from them. Have you got a link to your update?
  13. Thanks for your input Derek, it's not the map update that I am looking for, just the firmware. I had a couple of updates done free of charge when I had my IS but I haven't been able to identify the latest version for my NX.
  14. Quite surprising that nobody knows the answer to this! I thought that the younger generation would be well up to speed on such matters.
  15. Hello folks. Does anyone know what is the latest up-to-date version number of the firmware for my 64 plate NX300h Luxury with convenience pack. Many thanks.
