  1. Given factors such as external temperature, residual fuel and possibly others, are you sure your calculations are that precise that they would pick up a difference of only 0.5mpg? This is purely a question, as it seems to be such a small variance. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  2. Yes, they are self leveling. Yes, there is an auto function: just make sure the stalk is in the position marked AUTO No, there is no auto-dip function. Or rather there is, but on some versions of the face lifted model (2018) Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk

    Tried an NX Today

    I think that unless you go for a people carrier with 3 individual rear seats, the middle seat in any other car will require some compromise. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk

    Which one should I buy? (2011/2012)

    Have you actually driven a CT, or sat in one? Are you aware that it is quite a lot smaller than a Prius and has a rather small boot? I am not trying to put you off, I am a fan of the CT myself, but since you mentioned the Prius... And kids... Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk

    NX300h Luxury 2018

    Had a new ct200h as a courtesy car yesterday, while my nx was being serviced. Now I understand why it kept telling me that the speed limit on the me is 90! Thank you! Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  6. I have to say that Saab seats remain difficult to beat! I am surprised though, that you find the RX's seats hard. When we switched from the RX400h to the RX450h, we did find the seats felt quite different and put it down to the fact that 1) the 400h had perforated leather whereas the 450h didn't, and 2) the seats in the 450h were flatter... less sculpted. We did find them very comfortable after a week or so. Had several trips across France, to Spain and to Germany without experiencing any back problems.
  7. Odd really... I always thought that Audi's seats very overly firm. On the other hand, I found the seats in our previous RX very comfy. Were your Audi and Saab old cars? - Could it be that the seats had sagged somewhat over time?

    Lexus Nx True Mpg

    I have been experimenting over the past few weeks... Using Sport mode on the motorway (I do 50% of my mileage on motorways) and Normal in town and country roads. Never use ECO... I find it too frustrating. I find the responsiveness of the sport mode more suited to motorway driving. I use the radar cruise control on m-ways whenever suitable, usually set on 75mph, and the car has 4 new tyres (Michelin Cross Climates). I have been averaging 34.5 mpg (computer reading) over the last 3 full tanks. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk

    NX Tyres

    I have to say I'm very pleased with them too. Definitely recommended. If you can get hold of them. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  10. I believe that the lack of adjustment maybe linked to the fact that xenon and LED headlights are self levelling. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  11. I had issues with parking sensors a few years ago on an RX. It was explained to me that the sensors are made of three main parts. An outer ring, a small disc (the sensor), and in between a rubber ring. The sensor works in a way similar to a sonar, sending and receiving sound waves. The rubber ring around it allows the sensor to register the tiny vibrations from incoming sound waves. In my case, 3g clear coat had been applied to the car, including the sensors. Over time, the clear coat had hardened to such an extent, and the rubber rings with it, that the sensors no longer worked properly. Dealer took them apart, cleaned them, and refitted them. Did not have any issues after that. I guess that, on this basis, hardened dirt or ice could also interfere with the sensors. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk

    So noisy

    As I have said in another thread, just swapped OEM Yokohama tyres for Michelin cross Climates and it has made quite a difference to the noise level Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk

    NX Tyres

    Tyres are now fitted. What a difference from the Yokohama's. Much quieter, and much more compliant. I think the Cross Climates and the ride of the F-Sport make for a near perfect combination. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk

    Damage to side panel

    We were in a similar situation some months ago, when our previous Lexus got damaged in a car park in Winchester. We were told by the council that we could not have access to the CCTV footage, but that the footage would be checked and any relevant info passed onto the police directly. All we had to do is to provide date and approximate time. Unfortunately, we then found that our car was parked in a blind spot not covered by the cameras. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  15. It is not on recent models, supposedly in response to customer demand. People complained that the auto fade is a pain when you're trying to listen to the news etc... Which I don't disagree with. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
