  1. I bought the above product recently and was fairly sceptical regarding its claims but having used it this weekend I am impressed! Initial prep was thorough power wash snow foaming, iron-off and light claying and the an application of Black Hole polish. Then the ceramic coating - secret is to follow the instruction of using only two sprays per panel, spreading the fluid evenly and then buffing off. It's hard work but any smearing can be corrected via a damp microfiber cloth. The depth of gloss on my Graphite black metallic NX is outstanding (as illustrated) and super smooth. Water beading and sheeting is incredible and all plastic trim and side windows were included in the "coating". Whether the claim that the double application will last 12 months remains to be seen - I am doubtful.
  2. Welcome to the club. I have had my NX for over 2 years and 20000 miles now. No issues and a fantastic car. Enjoy yours.
  3. Think they were introduced for the 2018 model year.
  4. Today's task - washed, polished with Poorboys Black hole and then waxed using Nattys Black Paste wax. Alloys polished using Autoglym Alloy Wheel cleaner and tyres with Autoglym tyre gel. Pleased with all of these products and the final result. Typically its just started to rain! ☹️💦🌧️
  5. I have a 2018 NX Luxury and the polar opposite to you in that I reckon its the most comfortable seat that I have ever had. Always thought the seats in my Volvo S80 were difficult to beat but Lexus proved me wrong. Hope you can get the combination of height and recline etc to suit!
  6. Auto Trader has announced the Lexus NX as the best hybrid car in their New Car awards 2020. Well deserved.
  7. I agree that an extended test drive is a must. Regarding seat comfort I am extremely happy with my 2018MY NX Luxury - possibly the most comfortable car that I have owned and that includes Merc and Volvos.
  8. For more than one vehicle I would recommend Admiral Multicar. I've been with them covering the family "fleet" for over 12 years now and they remain competitive year on year.
  9. A step too far for me. Cost bound to be much greater and therefore repair costs like-wise. Mirrored glass has worked well so far!
  10. I also like the Khaki green. Wish that was available on the NX! Azure blue would be my second choice.
  11. I also have a MY2018 NX and have had a similar issue on about 3 occasions. It's always been during wet weather however each time the problem has "cured" itself within a few minutes and so have never raised the matter with the dealer.
  12. Surprised that fuel consumption is so low as you allude to. I have had my Nx300h for nearly two years and have recorded brim to brim mileage from new. Mixed range of driving has given a average of 41mpg over 18500 miles.
  13. I have applied RainX and it certainly helps.
  14. I have a 2018 NX Luxury and have recorded full tank to tank fill ups from new. I have never got as low a return as 31.5mpg and average has been 41.42 over 17500 miles. Highest so far 46.32 and lowest 34.07. Time of year makes significant difference with the winter months tending to see consumption in the high 30's and summertime seeing mid 40's. Usually drive in normal mode and only occasionally eco and sport. Journeys are a mix of local urban and Motorway. Like you I think it is a superb car - but one where gentle acceleration does help its economy. Follow the tips on hybrid driving as they are helpful. Happy motoring!
  15. A Happy, healthy, peaceful Christmas to all.
