  1. Ah but how would you test it. Walk away from car, is it locked? go back to car to check, car unlocks,..... I think this is getting too lazy.
  2. Press the dimple on the door handle or press the button on the remote.
  3. Assuming L3 XUS is out of your price range/not available, how about VC 02 LEX or any other number (making sure the age letter is not newer than your car.)

    Lovely colour mesa red, but I'm biased. Had mine glasscoated and it still looks vibrant after three years. Nice to see a bit of colour. Too many black/silver/grey/white cars around.
  5. Have you done the two black ones in the front grill?

    Extended warranty

    My car is just reaching the 3 years old mark and am considering the extended warranty. £800 is a lot for two years but so is £460 for a sensor! Hum, a dilemma. Piece of mind or trust your luck. Its a difficult decision. I've not needed the warranty and it still seems to be in full working order (touch wood) but you don't know what will break tomorrow. I'm not ready to change yet so maybe the piece of mind will be worth it. Is there any movement on the £800 quoted on the Lexus website for 2 years extended warranty.

    Cvt gear box

    Forget everything you know or read about on conventional CVT gearboxes. Turn the silly simulated noise off and just be amazed at how well it works and how smooth it is.
  8. It’s great advice if the dealer wants to shift one of their last GSs.
  9. I would be interested in an IS tourer. The IS is a great car but not very practical for family life. We end up using the wife’s Jazz when going on holiday or taking kids to uni etc. Also you can’t get a wheelchair or walker in the IS if taking aged parents out. I am not keen on an SUV as I like to be able to clean the roof without needing stepladders.

    Engaging Drive (Gear)

    I’ve noticed this on every automatic car I’ve had. I think it’s something to do with the weight of the car shifting on the suspension and the brakes holding the wheels. Like when you release the handbrake the car can raise up.

    Humming noise on startup

    Cooling fan on the battery ?

    ASC button

    Had a play with this this morning. When in EV mode it does not make a sound (as you may expect). When in sport mode it makes a droning engine sound simulating gear change noise as you accelerate. It even make the droning noise when it kicks in to EV mode and the rev counter says 0 rpm! Can't really see why anyone would find it useful, they could at least put a nice V10 soundtrack from the LFA in.
  13. I have just started to notice this too after a service. Sounds like a turbo. I thought perhaps that had put a new engine in but alas it doesn't go any quicker. I have also developed (well not me but the car) a slight squeak from the wheels when driving slowly in traffic jams ( most of the time then). This started after the service and new tyres. I'll have to turn the volume up. [emoji450][emoji442]

    Help! ASC not working...

    Why am I always repeating myself Why am I always repeating myself Why....

    Help! ASC not working...

    It may be the volume control knob for the ASC is dirty and causing poor contact. It's on the dashboard to the right of the steering wheel. Not experienced this myself as I have asc switched off. Bit of a gimmick really. If you want simulated engine noise they should make it a V10 from the LFA.
