  1. It's a while ago now, but if I remember correctly I was given it by the Connected Services (now "MyLexus") website when I (re-)registered.
  2. Sorry I've only just seen this. Have them in my wife's CT (part tahara/part cloth) and didn't in the previous. Really like them. No issues (at 20k miles).
  3. Tbh, I wouldn't be too quick to look for a "work around". This is a safety feature and an entirely legitimate one. Cruise control of any kind is not designed for heavy rain.
  4. Just to add another one to the "basically ignore reviews because they overstate handling" argument. The infotainment is a pain (but you do get used to it) and I do think road bumps get through the car a little more than they should. But that's it. Other than that it is quiet, it is good-looking, it is supremely comfortable, it is reliable, and it is in every sense outstanding. So if you liked it, don't hesitate!
  5. I have exactly your car minus the pan roof. Your best bet will be to come back with specific queries (and pics!) once you have the car. If you are new to CVT hybrid, the main thing probably is the premium on smooth getaways and decelerating, and note the car only applies the actual brakes in the last 5mph (so initially it can seem like it comes to a shuddering halt, but you soon adapt so this does not happen).
  6. Those all strike me as good points. I really like Lexus in most regards obviously, but there are a few fairly basic things (like wipe on reverse) it misses for some reason.
  7. Yes I was, but I'm damned if I can remember how! Basically the key was to have personal hotspot turned on on my phone. That's Apple for you. Apparently this doesn't matter if you connect by Bluetooth (but I couldn't do that) so I connect by WiFi. Only issue now is I'm not getting text message read-out, but that's no biggie.
  8. My wife's CT (2017MY) has developed a sort of airy, windy noise coming from the back right on some occasions. Is this a normal aspect of the hybrid system (it seems to come through the vents), or does it seem odd?!
  9. Currently my dealer is reckoning on having one in the showroom just about by end year, with deliveries from start 2019.
  10. The LS isn't really about profit per se, but indeed about being the flagship. It exists so that, from CT to RX, we can all say we drive the same brand as Harvey in Suits gets driven about in... :)
  11. Yes, it can be deactivated. I can't remember where in settings, but it's quite obvious (unusually so for Lexus!)
  12. I have a 6, IOS 11.3, but needs to have that page open for me!
  13. I'd be surprised (but some of you may well know better) if Lexus goes much down the "individual options" route for Europe. It's fundamentally not how they do things, and it makes each individual car considerably less profitable. When sales are relatively low to begin with, I don't know why they would do that. It's an interesting move but it's one of those - for me, the GS was absolutely superb and yet its sales dwindled.
  14. Just to note also, if you are using iPhone you will need the actual settings page with Personal Hotspot open when you turn the car on. It's a bizarre quirk but in fairness that one is Apple's fault, not Lexus'!
