  1. Hi Folks! Anyone can recommend me a sunshade that fits on the inside of the windscreen NX? I have a current one but it is absolutely rubbish. It doesn't stay in place because it doesn't fit properly. Any help will be well received. Thanks!
  2. Sorry, I can't be of help with this because I have a tow bar installed after many years with roof bars in other cars, I did hate my previous roof bars! It was so hard to put anything on top and my previous car was not as tall and the NX. I would recommend a tow bar with some system for bikes or suitcases. I'm extremely happy with the system I have. Check my previous posts. Cheers!
  3. I installed my towbar after I bought the car from Lexus. It was part of a deal but the car was second hand. Price was around £600 I think. It's a great tow bar. you can take it off and you see nothing on the back of the car but a small square piece of metal underneath the car. I did post some pictures on this forum a few months ago. Cheers!
  4. I forgot to mention that I already have AA breakdown cover. I have been with the AA for more than 20 years. That is why the Lexus breakdown cover may not be useful for me.
  5. HI i have been offered an extension of the warranty on my car. Coming to 3 years old and I bought it second hand a year ago. The 1 year Warranty is coming to an end then they offered me a deal to extend it 2 years for £795. The offer comes with Lexus Roadside and 2 Free MOTs including Lexus MOT failure. My question is it worth it? Can someone let me know? Here is the list of what is included and not included: The Extended Warranty Covers You For: · Engine Components · Clutch · Gearbox and manual transmission · Automatic transmission · Four wheel drive transmission · Rear axle · Prop shaft · Suspension · Braking system · Turbocharger · Fuel system · Diesel injection systems · Electronic ignition · Electrics · Oil leaks · Cooling system · Steering · Air conditioning · Casings · HV Battery on Hybrids It does have some exclusions which are: · Serviceable items · Drive belt adjustments · Brake and clutch adjustments and replacements due to wear · Glass replacements due to breakages or impact · Lights, bulbs and headlight adjustments · Window and door lock adjustments · Paintwork and bodywork · 12 Volt battery (HV battery on Hybrids is covered) · Interior trim · Corrosion to the exhaust · Road Wheels Any advice on this will be appreciated. Cheers!
  6. Thanks Ian for the advise. I wasn’t thinking of switching it off anyway. I gather it will be difficult for the radar to pick up anything with such heavy rain. Cheers
  7. Wow I'm scare to ask!! On another similar matter I did switch off the rear parking sensor because I had the bicycle rack on the tow bar and I forgot to switch it on when toke it all off. Later on another day my wife tried to park the car and expected a noise.......... Don't ask me what happened next!!!
  8. Many thanks for your help guys . I’ll look at the manual too and see if I can learn how to go around this. It has been very informative. Cheers
  9. Hi Something weird happened at the weekend. While on cruise control at a rainy night a warning light came on with a noise signal and the car canceled the cruise control. I had the pre-crash on. I do not know how to switch it off and I don't really want to switch it off anyway. There was a lot of rain and I'm wondering if that was the problem. The cruise control would not work on those conditions. Does someone know why this happened? How do I fix this?
  10. We bought the tow bar from Lexus Not sure about the cost because Lexus did it as part of a deal when I bought the car. It’s an invisible tow bar which you can remove easily. The carrier was £440. The carrier is great and I’m extremely happy with it. Seems very well made. Good luck!
  11. Lexus replaced the screen no problem. Back as new! I'm a happy man! 🙂
  12. Lexus is looking at it tomorrow. Will let you know! Cheers for that!
  13. Great Thanks A garage told me that Cross Climate are good but not so good if you do low mileage. I only do 3000 miles or a bit more per year then he recon it will be better to get something else. Any advise on this? Any other make apart from the Michelin ones? Many thanks!
  14. Hi Have to change the front tyres. At the moment I have the Yokohama ones. Seem that everybody has this ones and then they change them for a better ones. I'm thinking about getting rim protection tyres. Can someone recommend me anything? I have not idea what to get. but I only want to get the front ones at the moment. The 2 rear ones are ok. But The front ones need to be changed I think they are at the minimum now. Should I go to my Lexus dealer or any garage selling tyres? Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!
  15. Hi I just notice that the Sat Nav screen on my NX is damaged! It looks like it is a scratch but is the anti glare film. There must be some sort of problem with this because I was so careful not to touch it. I know screens can be easy to damage but this is ridiculous! I only clean the dust off! Any other NX owner had the the same problem? I contacted Lexus then I'm waiting to hear...
