  1. The new RX looks fantastic Ed ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Regarding the manuals, yes Lexus still do this - I sent off an email to Lexus customer services after I bought my RX, and the full manual, plus infotainment manual, were received a few days later.
  2. The weather has also got colder recently (at least around here), I would imagine that's a factor - fuel consumption for hybrids does seem to be susceptible to colder temperatures.
  3. These aren't that recent as I've had my RX for almost 2 years: 1) As mentioned on another thread recently, the two small buttons on the boot that lock and unlock the car ๐Ÿ™‚ 2) The two hooks in the boot for hanging shopping bags 3) The small storage compartment to the right of the passenger's footwell There's also apparently two further hooks in the passenger footwell for hanging bags, but I've not found these yet! ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Have you tried smearing the suspect sensor with a small amount of Vaseline or silicone spray? I seem to recall this worked for other members in the past.
  5. Despite my previous post, I also have no complaints at all from Lexus Milton Keynes (where I bought the RX) and Lexus Stockport (where I have it serviced) - both have been excellent.
  6. For my 2nd service recently, I had overpressured my tyres slightly to 2.5 bar cold prior to the service. After I got the car back again, I checked the pressure reading the following day, and it read 2.3 bar cold (correct for the RX). So at least they did adjust the tyre pressures if nothing else ๐Ÿ˜„
  7. Barry, was your RX ever included in the low pressure fuel pump recall? Just curious if that may have anything to do with the hesitency.
  8. For me especially those who drive in the dawn/dusk/heavy rain with just daytime running lights on, so no rear tail lights are illuminated! ๐Ÿ˜ž
  9. I've done quite a lot of miles recently on a mixture of E5 and E10, and I haven't noticed any noticable drop in fuel consumption when using E10.
  10. I didn't play any golf John, but happened to be passing through on the way back from John O'Groats and needed to fill up. Was in Scotland for a week starting off in Dornoch (no golf there either ๐Ÿ™‚), but had a great time visiting various places along the east coast of Sutherland and Caithness.
  11. Filled up in Brora last week at ยฃ1.409 for E10. Have been running a mixture of E5 and E10 the last few months, and not noticed much difference in economy or performance ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. I'm sure you'll love the cooled seats in the summer too ๐Ÿ˜‰ Great choice Ed, can't wait to see the pictures when you eventually get it. Will be like an early Christmas present ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. Hi James, I don't think it's quite the same company, but I've used Shine Repair (part of Smart Insurance) when I scuffed a wing mirror in April this year. After sending a couple of pictures to them via the app, the approval to go ahead and carry out the repair was done within 24 hours. I booked an appointment about 2 weeks after the approval date, but they were able to offer me slots before this, within a few days if I remember (I couldn't have the repair done any earlier than this as I was due to go on holiday). The repair was also done to a very high standard, so no complaints from me.
  14. An interesting and informative review, thank you Nigel ๐Ÿ‘
