  1. Jump leads: which size?

    From my handbook.. Charging the hybrid battery (traction battery) As the gasoline engine charges the hybrid battery (traction battery), the battery does not need to be charged from an outside source. However, if the vehicle is left parked for a long time the hybrid battery (traction battery) will slowly discharge. For this reason, be sure to drive the vehicle at least once every few months for at least 30 minutes or 16 km (10 miles). If the hybrid battery (traction battery) becomes fully discharged and you are unable to start the hybrid system, contact any authorized Lexus dealer or repairer, or another duly qualified and equipped professional
  2. Parking tickets

    I don't have a huge car but it does have very wide doors... I park at the back of the car park and I unashamedly park across two spaces, at the end of the row or between lamp bollards etc.. If it's a pay and display, I buy two tickets...

  7. 2018 RC F

    Unless one drives the old and new back to back I doubt it'll be a concern. 400+ horses is still a lot on the public highway.

  16. Uneven tyre wear

    Doing the alignment with unevenly worn tyres fitted will mean the adjustment will be incorrect once new tyres are fitted, as the adjustment will have taken the uneven wear into account. Always best to have the geo checked with new or tyres will normal (even) wear pattern. 36 mpg is about what I get on out of town drives. Goes up to approx 47 mpg when commuting around town. The generally held opinion is it's best to accelerate normally, briskly under petrol power and then back right off when up to speed and gently reapplying the throttle to maintain speed. This will usually utilise battery power, as long as speed is below ~40mph and on nothing more than a gentle incline. It is possible to pull away under battery power (in Normal mode) but following drivers won't be pleased..
  17. handsfree phone use

    Not in any car I've had with mobile installed. The radio audio should automatically mute when a call is received, or initiated

  19. The part is available from pretty much any tyre shop, as well as dealers. It will need registering with the car's system though, some tyre shops will have the required software to do this, otherwise it will need a dealership.
