  1. Thanks - they are the 18" Premium Pack ones that used to be on the Premier grade 🙂
  2. I have the same car in Sonic White with Sandstone Leather - it's an amazing vehicle, not perfect, but amazing anyway 🙂
  3. I seem to have problems getting it to remember my log in details - so although it is quite useful/interesting, having to log on to it each time I start a journey is a pain!
  4. I have similar issues with my IS300 and a Samsung Galaxy Note 8... Whichever cable (Samsung official, or cheap third party one) I use, the phone says it cannot transfer data via USB. To get around this, I set up my Wifi Hotspot - and the car found that OK and I was using that for connected services - but I have noticed that the car keeps dropping the Phone/Audio/Bluetooth connection (sometimes in mid call) and then restarts the connection seconds later. Incidentally, the only way I could get the car to connect to the wifi hotspot was to leave the phone on the phone screen where you turn on the hot spot - don't go back to the main home screen...
  5. I must admit I am loving the challenge of learning to drive Hybrid - I like the coasting (downhill it runs for ages!) and looking ahead should be standard anyway! Not a fan of braking long and slowly to get the regeneration "E" on the consumption meter - it's just how I roll 😄
  6. Only done about a 1000 miles in my 2019 IS300h - about 47mpg on the dash so far...
  7. Dashboard average has gone up to 47.5 on a longer run - but seems to be settled around 47 for my daily 19-mile (each way) cross-country commute - not quite got 1000 miles yet, so hoping there's potential to go up - how are you finding yours? Biggest annoyance is the dated nav screen - managed to get it to sync to my phone's wifi hotspot - just need to get a decent way to make the phone accessible so I can change tracks/playlists etc.... I am actually slightly chuffed to see I can play DVDs in the car now though 😉
  8. I have managed to get the In-car IT working - but only by using the Mobile wifi Hotspot on my Samsung Galaxy Note - the USB cable ports will charge the phone, but keep getting messages saying the phone can't communicate with the car. Its like a routine now... 1) Get in car 2) Activate mobile wifi hotspot on phone, and leave it on that screen 3) Power on car and plug phone into USB 4) put phone in centre pocket Usually by the time I have stowed the phone, the car has done it's startup sequence and connected itself. Just need to sort out "Car Mode" on the Android phone, so I can actually choose different music playlists from large buttons that are accessible while driving! I totally agree the In-car IT is pretty old fashioned - Don't understand why Apple/Android systems haven't been fitted after all this time
  9. Wow Kikovuk - I'm just coming up to my first 1000 miles - averaging 47.3 mpg on the dash - happy with that!
  10. Thank you - it's a real diamond of a car! Didn't quite appreciate the pearlescent nature of the Sonic White - looks great... Now, should it have more than one reversing light, and should the rear parking sensors make a noise...?
  11. Which combination of assorted codes did the job?
  12. Exactly the problem I have - I can register the Vehicle Number, the VIN Number and the Multimedia number, but can't get the "Version Code" - surely this must be the same for every IS300? Do you recommend I just ask a Dealer?
  13. Finally took delivery yesterday! IS300H with Premium Pack - Sonic White with Sandstone Leather and 18" Alloys - Those triple-LED headlights are fantastic... Can't believe what a difference there is between the car I remember test driving and this new 2019 MY version... Now to learn what all the bits do!
