  1. Used another phone and it’s the same outcome. Tired my phone in a different car and it’s fine so I’m assuming it’s the CT system.
  2. Looks like we are getting of subject on this. does anyone know how to resolve this issue? I don’t really like how it plays via phone call to get it come through the speakers. Just to advise it also happens with Google maps. help anyone?
  3. How much did Lexus charge for sat nav update? yeah agree I have the newest headlight on the CT and they are bright so I do see pot holes but waze just lets you know if there are any about as other drivers have advised as it being a community app.
  4. So my phone is connected to the car but as mentioned the alerts do not come through the speaker and I prefer hearing the alerts than looking at the screen of my phone or the screen in the car as waze gives you alerts like mobile speed cameras, pot holes, accidents and it’s more up to date than the Lexus nav even though my car is a 2019 it’s dated already.
  5. Awful wheels and he should of tried to buff the yellowed head light.
  6. Even without music it won’t play via the speakers it’s completely baffling that my old 08 is220d it worked fine. The built in sat nav annoys me to put the address in takes ages with the mouse control thing.
  7. Hi all, I normally use waze on my old Lexus is220d and it always use to play through my speaker on the drivers side. today I have tried it on my CT for the first time and it won’t play at all unless it’s via the play as call option which I don’t like or just have to use the phones speaker. Has anyone experience this before?
  8. welcome to the forum and enjoy being a Lexus owner. Just need to adjust the way you drive and you will find the CVT gear box won’t be on the revs. I have mine for 5 months coming from a Lexus is220d and I enjoy every time I get in my CT.
  9. So what I do is give it a good weekly wash snow foam and two bucket method wash, then apply a spray wax. if I drive daily and there is road salt then I snow foam and jet wash it off every couple of days just to take some of the salt off before the weekend. As my car sits on a street I actually have wheel covers that go over the tyre to stop any spray from other cars and the salt getting into my calliper and ruining my discs and pads! Happened to me with my old is220d
  10. Hi all, now clocks have gone back and the weather is getting grim (up north it is 😂) just wondering how people on here prep for the winter to protect the pain and wheels from the weather and salt?
  11. I got the nextbase one from Lexus and been happy with it picture quality is excellent and app to view the videos is simple to use.
  12. So filled up last week and reset the mileage counter and I was getting around 51MPG mixture of motorway and town driving which is fine considering I had a IS220d! So with fuel and electric combined I got 415 miles in total based on my counter and I will take that any day.
  13. At the moment I’m getting about 35 miles per little square and this is a mixture of town and dual carriageway driving and says I’m getting 50.6 MPG using shell v power
  14. Hi all, I noticed today due to how the sun hit the interior that the thin screen under the air vents on my CT has scratches going left to right. Has anyone got ideas on how I can get the scratches out? looking straight on the you can’t see them just on an angle you can. regards joel
  15. Was about to say I got mine fitted when I purchase the car 3 months back and I have had no noise or rattle from it. what you may want to do is slow down on the speed bumps you get in car parks as I have caught the cat lock once and when I look at the car from a distance you can see the cat loc ever so slightly
  16. Which attachment did you use? I used the widest one so I think next time I will try the narrow one to see if that helps dry it quicker. think it’s BLO Air-S all the way now and ditch then auto finesse aqua deluxe towel
  17. I normally use V Power however I have put a tank of E10 in to see if there is a change in MPG.
  18. Right….. today was the day I used it as it was a no contact wash…… jet wash then snow foam and then jet wash as the car only had a thin layer of dust on. My word it’s bloody good, anyone who has the metal scuff plate on the back bumper the amount of water that holds is crazy so it all got blasted out. Took 40 mins to dry the car but this was making sure all the shuts and gaps had a good blast to get the water out.
  19. Like the wheels on the left hand side one. Nice to have two Lexus motors at the same time 👍🏼
  20. This was my first CVT and going from a manual you have to adjust your driving and slowly use the accelerator rather than floor is as you will hear is rev till you get to the speed you want it to be. I went for an F sport model as I liked the looks more than the others specs like the sport model.
  21. Just got mine today as one of my bday presents and agree it’s well packaged and the weight is not bad either. Have not used it yet but plugged it in and turned it on and was really surprised how strong it was on setting one! Tried setting 2 and think that will be able the one to dry the car fully. when I do use it I will provide an update. cheers Kish for your review
  22. In the Toyota I believe it was set up better as you could get an avensis into 6th at 35-40 mph. Compared to the 220d. Guess that’s why they did the change on the later Diesel engines and de tuned them. I was one of those lucky Lexus owners with an IS220d that didn’t have engine issues it was just bad on MPG for a diesel
