  1. I suggest an upgrade to garage storage... seriously though an interesting situation with snow. I've had estate cars for years so getting used to whole small boot thing is taking time.
  2. SatNav

    I went for standard Nav as I thought the extra 1k a bit steep for something I don't use much. Also standard Nav gets the rotating controller as oopposed to the touch pad on the premium. What I'm trying to establish is how to update the nav with latest maps after I've had the car a while. Anyone know?

    My membership pack took about 2-3 weeks. Last weekend the Halfords checkout assistant had to calculate the 15% discount on his smart phone... 😀
  4. RC base audio

    I'm also thinking that a dent sub will go along way to getting the depth. Hopefully once Lexus share the full speaker and head unit spec with me I can the necessary advice from my audio dealer. Cheers.
  5. I have (I believe) the base audio system in my RC. I specced only the standard Nav and it was only after purchasing I realised the audio system sound was not nearly as good as in the demonstrator I had that had premium nav (not ML mind you). Later research suggested that the base audio has 6 speakers, the premium nav version has 10 and the ML system has 17. So I'm looking into some after market speakers and may be amplification upgrades to improve what I have. It isnt bad, just needs a bit more depth / bass really. I didn't go for the premium nav as it cost a grand, I don't use a sat nav much, I don't like the touch pad, and I was not aware the audio system was different. Subsequent flick through the brochure does say the base system is 6 speakers so my fault. Anyway, popped to a local audio dealer who took a look and I was told that he rear seat area had working speakers. So I make that at least 7 speakers, may be 8. 2 on the dash, may be the one in the middle too, door speakers, rear seat ones and a large one on the rear shelf. My local dealer is looking into what the specs are of my system so I can pass onto my audio dealer. Anyone have any advice on this?
  6. RCF test drive

    Well I've had mine 2 months so already lost several £k.... may be next time if the model is still around.
  7. 300h owner but had the chance to drive the RCF today at a demo day put on by Listers Lexus Cheltenham. Whilst waiting to try the new LS500 I was offered a go in the RCF. Glad to have experienced a V8 of Cathedral proportions and endless pull. I fear the V8 will be resigned to history soon so chuffed to have driven this one. LS500 - a massive silent luxury thing. The rear seating room and gadgets are totally nuts.

    Paid for gold membership. Any idea whenthe welcome pack / membership ID card should arrive?
  10. Japfest stand??

    Well I'm signed up to attend with the RX8 OC but it would be good to meet up with a few other Lexus owners if a stand was being arranged. My alternative bringing the 8 to events was a Mazda6 estate so happier now that my alternative Jap car is an RC...
  11. I couldn't get the spec and colour combo for mine in early November, so had to make a change to what I wanted as the dealer wouldn't support any extra costs of increases in spec. The deal was pretty good and I think it is obvious that some kind of facelft was due as these are low volume production cars. Mine was actually delivered with a paint chip on the passenger door. As the Sales exec handed me the delivery notice to sign I did a thorough check and spotted it, luckily. They soon had it done but not sure if the damage had been done before or after the protective treatment I paid £500 for... Loving the Sport+ mode off the line. I need to do a 0-60 real time check, I think it beats the 8.5s. Although not as rapid as my RX8 it ain't far behind.
  12. Picked up a pair of door shadow lights the other night. A mate who has a GT86 was sent a set of Lexus logo shadow lights by accident so I took them off his hands. I was a bit sceptical about how good they would be and was pleasantly surprised tonight. Nice touch for a sophisticated car. Not much detail on the model no. or source but if anyone wants to know ill try and find out. The box states 3D Laser Shadow Light.
  13. hi guys im new

  14. hi guys im new

    New here too so welcome from one 300h owner to another. Enjoy.
  15. rear seat access

    Update. Popped into Listers Lexus and they took a look. They got it to work immediately however had found my emergency high vis vest under the seat and suspected this might have interfered with the system. Although i was still able to move the seat backwards and forwards manually. Anyway working now and need another home for my high vis.
