  1. I have to agree with the majority and say that the nav built in to my 2010 RX is rubbish. I’ve used it twice and it just seemed very dim-witted, like every manufacturer system I’ve tried. I run Waze on my iPhone with a magnetic holder so the phone sits just below the screen. Live accurate updates and I already own a smartphone so don’t need to purchase an additional device.

  2. I knew it was in there somewhere! Glad to hear you got it sorted Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You can turn the flicking between screens off. I forget how, but I was being driven spare by it flicking back and forth and eventually found the setting. It’s called “last screen” or something like that. The random opening of the map when you push a button is apparently “as specified” I even booked mine in to the dealer for it and there was nothing wrong, “it’s just what it does” was essentially the report back.

  4. Although I have a 450h rather than a 400h, my experience chimes with yours. I do a lot of miles (between 1500 and 2000 a month) and my RX is perfect. Sure it’s a little thirstier than my previous car, but for it’s sheer bulk it’s very economical. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be when stuck in a traffic jam than sat in my sound-insulated, comfortable, silently gliding truck. Just buy a Lexus! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Another one for 390-400 miles a tank. Even in this much cooler weather it very rarely drops below 360 miles. The worst I’ve had was 330 and that was because I turned Eco Mode off and drove it like I stole it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. That sounds great! Once you’ve picked it up and you’re free give me a bell [emoji16]. I did the same thing with autotrader ads and searched and searched all week. I had my doubts until I rounded the corner of the dealership, when I saw it sat outside I was sure! Love at first sight and all that. I think it was to do with it being the most expensive car I’d ever bought - you want to be sure. Yours looks like an absolute cracker, the drive home will be something else!

  7. Great choice and it looks fab! Glad to hear you’re all happy with it. I know the “waiting a week” feeling and it’ll be the longest ever! Weirdly, we’ve got a matching tyre set up. Hope to see it at some point and have an RXoff [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Sounds promising! Don’t forget to snap pics of the ones you see, never get tired at looking at RX’s! Have a great day out, good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Can’t wait to see it! It looks like a good one [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. That’s beautiful! The interior is stunning, hope it does you a good turn Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Excited to hear you’re starting the process! I found Cambridge extremely expensive too (hence going to Stockport). Guildford seemed good value for money and seemed to have good stocks. (A long way from you I know!) Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. That’s a good tip regarding the tailgate as mine has just started doing that! I’m due a service in the next couple of months at Cambridge. The car has had 4 previous owners who seem to have alternated between Bolton & Stockport (where I bought it) for servicing so hoping to keep up the Lexus stamps as long as feasible!

  13. This has the potential to be a great thread! I’ve got a 2010 SE-L Premier with 92000 miles. If yours is on 161k looks like I’ve got nothing but maintenance to worry about for a long time...! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I was thinking about this post as I was out in mine earlier. I find shutting the sunroof cover/blind makes a huge difference (in Lexus noise terms) to the amount of noise in the cabin. I don’t have the panoramic roof, just a standard sunroof, but do try to do high speed trips with the blind shut as it’s a little more peaceful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. That is an amazing price, I paid the thick end of £18k for a 2010! SL, I had an email from Steven Eagell this morning advising me of 0% interest rates at the moment for a January Sale. It sounds like a real shame that your local one is white! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
