  1. They look great, the colour sets off the silver really well and the silver caps are barely noticeable. I think they actually suit the darker wheels. Takes years off it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. There are a lot of great roadside charging solutions being designed, and in many cases implemented, right now From lamp post chargers, to terminals built into the kerb (Oxford City Council ran a trial on this) there’s loads of things coming to make home charging easier. Armadillo and ConnectedKerb are two such companies with products in use now. As time goes on more streamlined, discrete, options suitable for old high streets will be available. Certainly there’s the option to charge at supermarkets, offices, gyms etc springing up everywhere too. I think there’s a place for both Battery and Hydrogen and I don’t think either is the wrong way to go, but Hydrogen seems less practical than charging a battery right now.

  3. Thank you! These are very useful tips Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. When I was shopping for my RX, I seem to remember I found the panoramic roof had a bigger impact on rear headroom than a standard sunroof, on a 2009-2015 450h Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I don’t really have a huge problem with the need to charge it, but I do think it’s very poor to have it as an additional cost. It really should be part of the overall price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Could it be a blocked EGR Valve? This could cause the hesitation felt and as it gets worse could throw up a Check Engine Light? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. You're welcome, happy to help. I did, it seemed to be quite reliable, certainly in the massive stack of bills I had with the car there was no mention of it ever being touched and it seemed to go up and down as it should, sometimes the pump was a little loud but I think that was cold weather rather than age. The only caveat of the air suspension, I would say, is that I couldn't really tell. I don't think the car was exceptionally smooth, especially when compared to conventionally sprung RXs.
  8. I’ve recently sold my 2010 SE-L Premier, I averaged about 30mpg over 25000 miles, my best run was about 37. I couldn’t live without a head up display now, they’re such a good idea and really help with keeping your eyes up on the road, especially if using NAV. The LED Headlights were good, but they never blew my mind. Good, and crisp light but I can live without them. The alloys on the car were in great condition, and despite an ugly coming together between my alloy and a sharp kerb, there was no sign of damage or peeling etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi all, Just a quick update on this, I managed to get this repaired using some super strong Gorilla Glue, it is really strong now and looks as good as new. Lexus weren't interested in a goodwill gesture, understandably really, but thanks to Chris JJ as it was worth a try. The cruise control works as well as ever and I didn't have to mess with an airbag, that made me a little nervous. Sadly, due to changes in personal circumstances, I'm moving the RX on this week. (Not because of the Cruise stalk 😂) I've loved having it and will miss the luxury, but needs must! Thanks for being such a helpful and welcoming group! Alex
  10. Thanks Nigel! I was really surprised too, I think the plastic had just weakened - but the car is 10 years old! But some judicious application of Gorilla Glue on the original part and you'd never know, it's as strong as ever and looks good as new!
  11. Does your key not have a 3rd button? This is the key for my 2010. The key remotely operates the tailgate. I thought the tailgate handle was faulty on mine, but was reassured that only the key or the button on the dash can remotely operate the tailgate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hello, Just driving home this afternoon and on cancelling the cruise control there was a crack and my stalk had snapped! I’m not a heavy handed person, but the stalk does look a little tired. The car is 9 years old and has 100k miles plus, so it’s reasonable wear and tear I suppose. Has anyone else had this happen? I’m nervous of the cost of replacement and wonder if it’s worth buying the stalk and doing it myself. Would be keen to hear your experiences. Thanks! Alex. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. That’s almost identical to the load cover fitted to my pre-facelift RX450 mentioned earlier. It’s a shame they didn’t carry it over as it’s a really clever design. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This I find very interesting, SpottedLaurel of this forum has a post facelift which has this same issue, when comparing our cars we saw my 2010 has some flaps that clip onto the back seat covering up that gap. I wonder if it would be possible to fit this to yours? However, my car has a huge gap against the tailgate that you can see through so it’s not perfect! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Mine never changes the display on the dash, always showing ‘N’ however, if I leave the motorway at a short slip road I hear the compressor working when I reach the roundabout at the top. I’ve always just assumed that it does it without changing the display. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
