  1. It's just a habit. Once you get used to it! Every time I get out of the car I automatically switch the fob off. It also saves me £400 - but I'm a Scot living in Yorkshire - enough said!!!!!

    Lexus300h nx

    My wife’s Yaris Icon Tech has the same feature. IMHO it’s as useful as a chocolate teapot! As has been stated in the previous posts here it doesn’t read some signs, for no reason it can state 70mph in a 20mph limit and after a while it cancels itself then restarts when it reads another speed sign. I certainly would never rely on it and in fact it has been switched off in her car.
  3. Have you tried holding down the lock button on your keyfob then pressing the unlock button on the fob twice quickly. The led will flash 4 times ( I think). This also saves the fob battery.
  4. Honda for sure. After owning three and a major fault in the first one where Hondareplaced the car, I can’t fault their customer service. After that second choice is probably Toyota. In 19 years of Toyota ownership my wife bought another one last year. They just go on and on and on!

    Front Tyres for NX 300h Luxury

    I’ve got Michelin Cross Climates on the front wheels of my NX. IMHO possibly the best tyres I’ve had.

    Lexus Lincoln or Lexus Hull?

    Bought my NX from Hull and had 2 services from them. No complaints, all staff friendly, work and any info asked for has been spot on! IMHO I can recommend Lexus Hull and they also make a great coffee with chockie biscuits!
  7. Now that looks classy - IMHO. Blends in really well without spoiling the look of the car.

    IS got side swiped!

    @First_Lexus Funnily enough Ed, I insured our home for the first time this year with Direct Line for the same reasons as yourself. I think once you insure with a company for the first year the premium will inevitably increase at renewal. That is the norm in that business. Also last year I insured my Lexus and my wife’s Toyota with AVIVA as they offered the best price for the cover at that time.

    IS got side swiped!

    Don’t think they are the only insurers doing this!

    IS got side swiped!

    @rayaans another way re the excess is to claim this direct from the third party (once you get the details) under “uninsured losses” To me your insurance company should be doing this automatically. IMHO you should not need to get involved apart from advising your insurance company as you have already done. Sorry to learn of this incident and good luck with the outcome.

    NX ordered today

    The paint colour is fantastic (what a good choice) and fairly easy to keep clean. I love it! The sparkle when the sun shines is superb!!! Not a fan of the side steps as you know, but I look forward to the pics when you get delivery. Well done Ed.

    Back to Lexus

    On the premier, you are correct - 2 x fob keys and 1 x credit card type.

    New Firmware - May 2016

    @PhilWebster Hi Phil, on the NX the headlamp washers only work when the headlights are switched on. They then work on every 5th wash (I think) during the same journey. Yours might be the same.
