  1. Hello, Can you tell me what are your mpgs like, I'm mainly interested in city driving so I don't know if the gs 300 is the right car for me. Thank you in advance
  2. After having an NX300h for a few days as part of a curtesy car whilst my IS was in for a service I thought that I would write a little review on my findings. I picked the car up late on Thursday evening form my local Cardiff Lexus. The car was a demonstrator; SE spec. From what I understand the SE is not the base model but one up. It had some of the usual refinements that I like, heated seats, sat nav etc, but it was missing the basics such as parking sensors, although it did have a reversing camera! One thing that I really did think was a serious need for improvement was the info entertainment system. There was a USB port but it seemed this was to be used to charge phones and not as a socket where you could plug a USB stick full of music. The audio quality on the standard system was not amazing either. Visually the car is very striking to look at. What’s really weird is when you first start driving it. Being a Hybrid the first time you turn it on its complete silence. Even when the engine springs into life it doesn’t really make much more noise. The cabin layout was nice with a screen upon the dash, heating controls underneath and the usual buttons on the steering wheel allowing you to change the volume, answer phone calls etc. This car also featured an electronic hand break. This can be activated via the press of a button, or when the vehicle is placed in ‘Park’. Something that was a little strange was the break hold. This comes on automatically on my partners Golf, but you need to press the ‘break hold’ button at the start of each journey to activate it. Once the ignition is turned off you have to turn the break hold feature back on. This essentially puts the hand break on when you come to a stop regardless of whether you are in park or not, a handy feature. As previously mentioned, the driving element of this is fun. Initially I didn’t like it as much but as I drove around town I found myself fixated on the energy monitor. The Hybrid system will start you off, and, providing you are light with the throttle, can take you up to speeds of 40MPH. However, the range is incredibly limited, although this maybe down to the fact that I live in Wales and we have lots of hills here (I think I managed just over a mile on battery power). The car is almost silent when driving below 10MPH, and it doesn’t really get much noisier when you go faster. If I am being truthfully honest though I do think my IS is quieter at speed. The gearbox in this car is not a traditional 6 speed automatic. The E-CVT is a ‘gearless’ gearbox which does have massive benefits around town. You will never feel it change gear… as it doesn’t! The gearbox seemed to cope really well with around town driving, however when driving back to the dealership there was a section of road on the motorway which was uphill. When I put my foot down to overtake the engine did roar into live to give a little extra boost. Some of the car reviews slate this, but honestly it’s not as bad as people make out. If you are going to be planting the throttle everywhere you go then yes, the engine will generate quite a bit of noise, but if you are gentle with it, then you’ll be fine. Most of my driving is usually around town. On the motorway the car’s trip computer displayed 44MPG. When handing it back it was showing 42MPG. That included Cardiff to Swansea and the return trip one trip to work and a trip to a local city in total probably around 200 miles. Although this is not an acid test as I didn’t have the car long enough to do a lot of town driving I still feel that around town economy was better than what the IS would usually give. Motorway driving however, was disappointing. Considering the official figures are low 50s, this falls short. So I suppose the million dollar question would be would I buy one? At the moment the prices are too high for me, as typically I like to buy second hand and there’s not too many of them around. I did like the size and rear space (not that I take many people) and I did like the elevated driving position, but I do feel that there needs to be tweaks made. It would be nice if the battery range was a little longer as Mitsubishi have a 38 mile range in their SUV equivalent (although it’s a PHEV). The other thing that I found strange was the battery technology that Lexus are using, I would have thought LiPO would have been put into their modern cars. All in all an enjoyable drive.
  3. Hello, A while back I had my headlights and foglight bulbs replaced with Osrams - that made quite a difference. I also replaced my boot lightbulbs with LEDs which helped too. Using LED 501's on my front sidelights has also made things brighter. I used 501 Ring Premium LED 12V W5W Canbus Wedge Bulbs. Q. Has anyone changed their side indicators ( 501? ) or taillights - which are not the same - i.e., different bulbs depending on which tail light?
  4. Hello, Does anyone know ... Do updated Satnav disks influence how the Satnav picture looks, or is it just the data that's more up to date? Regards.
  5. Does anyone here have SatNav disks for an RX300 SEL 2004, that are more up to date than the originals that they would like to sell?
  6. Hello, I have a couple of spare good quality 501 LED ( flat ) bulbs that I bought in error. Does anyone know if any of the inside bulbs are 501's? I took a look at a boot light bulb but that was a long, round shape - so no good to replace. Just wondering if there is somewhere I can reuse them? Piers.
  7. Hello, Can anyone suggest appropriate ( Osram? ) LED bulbs to replace my existing RX300 side light bulbs, please? eBay, Amazon? I did buy these from eBay... (Osram LED 6000K Cool White W5W (501) Wedge 12V 1W Led Bulbs Long Life 2850CW-02B) But the packaging suggests inside the car use only... Regards. ** In fact i'd be happy to hear LED bulb recommendations generally, Fogs, tail light etc... **

    Wanted - Rx300 Gen2

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for a well maintained and highly specced RX300. I'd be especially interested in a car that has had an LPG conversion. Anywhere within about 100 miles of Cheltenham would be fine.
