  1. I can’t find the article now but a friend who just bought an NX was told by the dealer that an update was coming May 2020 to add CarPlay functionality to their car. The UX will likely be the same as CarPlay is a listed feature of the 2019 UX
  2. Whichever is the cheapest option for CarPlay to be possible. You will never ever use built in Nav if you can use the live traffic info and up to date mapping with the likes of Waze. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Makes sense. I have been toying between IS and NX. Sound isn’t a super critical thing for me but it definitely pushes me more towards NX after reading more about it.
  4. So what did you do in the end, just put it back as it was and leave it or did you route a loom? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It’s weird because every single advert I’ve seen for a used IS300h has mentioned 6 speakers (or ML). I’m not sure if it’s just that nobody bothers with the premium nav in the UK or the listings are incorrect in regard to the speaker quantity. If it is a 6 speaker setup, is the hole in the parcel shelf still there but blanked off or is it a different shelf without the hole do you know? Thanks
  6. What are people’s thoughts on the standard 6 speaker system in the IS300h, I have heard mixed reviews that they are pretty poor for a luxury car. I don’t want power but I definitely want good clarity. What are the upgrade options if they aren’t great? Thanks
  7. Hadn’t thought of it like that. Maybe I can cope with 36 years of life. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I would MUCH rather have replaceable bulbs but I think those LED units are completely sealed. Frustrating as I want some of the other premier features but would happily do without the LED headlights it comes with Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Well I hadn’t planned on buying an extended warranty but with prices like that then maybe I should! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Have you got a link for your soundproofing? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Oh dear. Is it something that commonly fails do you know? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Has anyone ever had an issue with their LED headlights? I worry that if any of them break it would be extortionate to repair? I’m looking at buying a 15 Reg ideally with the premier pack but I worry about options that could end up being a ridiculous price if you can’t fix them yourself. Anyone know what the repair cost of them is? Thanks
  13. Yeah that’s allowed... they only have to be one type of considerate at once. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 1. I want the opposite, I like how understated they are. Quiet quality over street cred any day. 2. I’m fine with the ECVT. Read bad things on the reviews but didn’t see the issue myself 3. That’s okay. 4. Yeah that worries me the most, I’m just hoping I can live with it or add the CarPlay option by installing a vLine box. 5. Not bothered. I don’t see the IS as an old persons car at all. My only other concern is I’ve read that the drivers seat bolster gets badly worn quite quickly which isn’t good. For such an expensive car that will annoy me.
  15. Not interested at all in a Mercedes and I want Indicators so BMW is out. To be honest I’ve gone off German cars recently after reading about the reliability of Toyota and Lexus. I’ve run my car into the ground and it’s always been bomb proof so I took it for granted but recently it’s started playing up (hence the new car hunt) and reliability and build quality is a massive thing for me.
