    32 psi seems soft

    I wasn’t suggesting I was going to ‘mess around with them’, it was more a case of being surprised the optimal pressure was a lowish 2.2 bar (32 psi) for all 4 tyres. But I do entirely agree with what you say in general about changing pressures for perceived better mpg or grip, etc. I’ve always stuck to the recommendated pressure, I’ve just not had a car a low as 32 psi for a long time.
  2. I know tyre and car manufacturers spend huge amounts of time working out the optimal tyre pressures for our cars but, if I’m reading the b-pillar plaque correctly, 32 psi for an NX running on 18’s doesn’t sound like a lot especially given its weight. The only reason I query this is doing something like a 3-point turn the steering is heavy although it feels fine on the move. My previous car, a Kia Sportage of similar weight was 36 all round whereas the wife’s small Mazda CX-3 is 33 (f) and 30 (r). I presume everyone here is running on 32 all round? cheers Peter
  3. I checked the sensitivity this morning and it’s set right in the middle. I’ll drop it one and see what happens tomorrow morning.
  4. Mirror glass went dark blue this morning as soon as the nav screen went into night mode. Headlights automatically on. Turning off the RVM returned the door mirror glass to clear. Turning the RVM back on again the door mirror glass went dark blue. As soon as there’s more natural daylight the blue colour goes away.
  5. The last 2 mornings (light but sun not yet up) both doors mirrors have been heavily tinted blue. It looks like someone has stuck a blue film to the mirrors. I know the car has auto dimming mirrors as have my previous Lexus but I’ve never seen this before. Any suggestions other than take it back to the dealer. It does appear to dim in proper daylight but there’s still an outline there. cheers Peter

  7. Forgot to add this interesting photo from yesterday.
  8. Maybe the wheel arches are all part of the aero to steer air flow away from turbulent areas? Is it strange that they are not uniform in shape but their odd shape may be designed in? Purely a guess though.
  9. Works as I want it now. Thanks.
  10. Makes sense NemesisUK but I wait at lights with the car in Drive and Auto Hold on.
  11. Yup, needles in cluster looked out of place and boot needs to be sorted as there’s no depth to it. I’m sure the boot will be sorted and the cabin will be brightened up with coloured leather trim. The plastic rear bumper hopefully will be sorted too as it’s very low rent. The rear light clusters look better in the flesh but the plastic wheel arch trims are weird as they’re not uniform in shape but head-on shots look good with the LC / NX lights.

    2018 NX Luxury

    UX pictures posted under the UX forum on this website. It was pre production and had some low rent materials but it’s quite smart in the flesh.
  13. Went to the car show at Wynyard Hall today in Teesside knowing there was a UX there on the Lexus stand. It was a pre production model so some of the trim was a bit low rent in places particularly the rear lower bumper. The car had potential and may start at under £30k and rise to about £34k. Here are some pictures:
  14. Has nobody tried this yet? It works quite well.
  15. Thanks Chris. That makes sense as when I've been driving the doors are still locked when I come to a stop and the boot won't open until I either unlock the doors or open them. If I sit in the car without driving it the boot opens. Yes, it's a little odd as my previous Kia would open the boot quite happily from the inside under any condition.
