  2. Hello fellow LC500 Owners. I found great options for front camera option and navigation-DVD bypass from Beat-Sonic. There are a few YouTube videos for the LC500 that they made. These options allow me to select between front and rear cameras while driving. Much needed when parking to prevent damage to the front spoiler. Especially for those high end, costly front spoilers/lips or for those with lowered/air bagged suspensions. I added a few pictures of what the final look is. There are a few different camera options also. I have to have a front plate in Maryland, so I mounted on the plate, but this can and could have been mounted on the grille. If anyone is interested and in the DC, Maryland, or Virginia area, message me and we can discuss this option. I can install for you as well and we can discuss options and pricing. A large portion of the dash must be disassembled to get behind the factory radio and DVD player. But so worth it for the options. If you have questions or need a reference, contact Eric at Beat-Sonic and he’ll recommend me. IMG_5259.MOV

  4. White potatoes are on the same "no" list as corn.😏 Sweet potatoes = 👍
  5. Good. I would take the $500 and have the car towed to a well-rated shop, especially one that has worked on your model, a non-hybrid version, or a different model but with the same engine. If they never have, consider a well-rated Toyota dealership.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Unless he put it on a dynamometer, how would he know that the engine, while under load, and the transmission going thru the gears were operating as intended? Insist the Dealer go out on a test drive. Selling your vehicle when the warrantee runs out makes it worth less to the Dealer because he has to spend money to re-certify. I didn't pick up on any problems with my 2018 RX 350 except poor seat ventilation and they insisted it was working "to their liking"...
  8. Car comercials used to say "your results may vary", which pretty much means your results will vary.
  9. Your car has a hard drive and if you have a satellite radio channel saved as a favorite, the car will take you to beginning of a song when you change channels
  10. Last week
  11. To reduce fading of interior upholstery, Jupiter window tinting window tinting is applied to the inside of a vehicle's windows. This covering material reflects and absorbs infrared and ultraviolet light. It helps keep the interior cooler by reducing the load on a vehicle's AC system.
  12. There is not enough data for the 2019 and 2020 models but the 2018 model's "Climate system" is rated as average. All model years before that were either better than average or much better than average in that category. Who replaced the motors?
  13. The 23 RX 350h (by one account) will be AWD and e-CVT standard, and get 36 MPG on “Premium” gas, according to a posting by Kirk Kreifels. There is no way a Lexus dealer is going to give up a next-Gen RX 350h AWD next year for under 64K$ IMHO. Lets face it, Gavan, the RX 350 is a rolling Box Car( compared to low-drag Lexus sedans like the ES). My last 100 mile interstate trip, I got a surprising 31 MPG with the RX 350, but I got 50 MPG with the ES 300h (same route / same traffic). But I don’t drive 75 MPH like some guys. That’s for those who like to wear their tires out quicker and spend more time at the gas pump. I hate hanging out at tire stores and gas stations.
  14. I'm looking at a 2012 IS 250 and it also needs front seat replacement. I'll check that link
  15. I just followed all the youtube advice about the LS400 being the best car ever made and I purchased a 2000 LS400. I would like to customize it a bit and I am partial to black steering wheels. The wood rim can be covered and protected with a leather cover, but then I still have the center pad and the side control buttons. As the stalks are already black, I am planning on removing the air bag pad and spraying several coats of black paint......is it covered with vinyl or leather? Any advice? Thank you
  16. I've owned a 2019 RX450h for 3 years and have never had that problem. It's possible some particles may have gotten into the vehicle air circulation system. I would start with replacing the cabin air filter system and having the inside of the car thoroughly cleaned. Good luck.
  17. 1. Did you buy Lexus/Toyota OEM oxygen sensors? If not, that may be why the check light is still illuminated. Did you delete the code(s)? Mass air flow sensors can often be cleaned with CDC Mass Air Flow cleaner spray but a new OEM unit should've fixed the problem if you cleared the codes. Did you buy an OEM MAF sensor? 2. Steering shakes over 60. That may be an unbalanced wheel/tire. Take your car to a tire shop. Discount tire will do this for free if you bought tires from them before. A shaking steering wheel could also indicate worn suspension components. Try the balancing, first but if that doesn't work, have the front end checked as soon as possible. 3. You should avoid buying a vehicle in which the owner removed the air filter.
  18. We just got a 22 Lexus GX 460 and are looking to replace the white fog lamp bulbs with yellow or amber. Any recommendations on bulb choice?
  19. Reinstalling a motor after installing a new head gasket and seals. My son helped with the removal of the fuel rail. I don’t have any washers with the parts but think it should have a crush washer under each of the three mounting bolts, or maybe not since no fuel passes through these areas. Thanks in advance for any help.
  20. I bought a 2019 used Lexus RX 350 with 30K miles. When i registered the car with Lexus and saw a service problem at 23K miles the fan belt popped off causing the engine to overheat and there was a loud pop and car shut off. car was towed in and a Block check done and Lexus said all was ok. Do I need to be concerned down the road at 50 to 100K miles?
  21. 2013 Rx350 states no higher ethanol content than 10% E10. With some areas going to E15 what does a person do? What is the danger of using E15? What to use instead?
  22. My goodness, I love the dance, the bob and weave, the could it be toss of spaghetti against the wall. The replacement of every single part except the door hinges. YOUR INJECTORS ARE BAD. My company rebuilds injectors, is rated 5 star across the board for the last 12 years, I own a 1990 LS 400 which now purrs like a kitty, and I have seen MANY sets of these injectors that leak down and have bad sprays. Surging, gas smell, melted cats, etc are CAUSED BY THESE BAD INJECTORS. They are fairly easy to remove -- save yourself time and effort and bad words and pre order the throttle body and upper intake manifold gaskets from Rock Auto. Pull the intake of course, makes reinstallation much easier. I'm not shilling for my biz, we got lots. I'm in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, so look us up if you want this fixed. By the way, don't ignore the cold start injector. Under the intake. It clogs solid and makes cold starts take a while. Later LS 400 models upgraded the software so the cold start was eliminated.
  23. Makes sense but unfortunately my old one is bit ripped..I guess I still need to reuse it. Thanks
  24. When my trunk malfunctioned the car was being used by an older family member who did not read good English nor have the best sight so telling them it was in the manual was not too helpful. I sent this video to him and it helped him get the trunk open, which needed to be open ASAP since it had groceries. Later, when I saw it in the manual I wasn't exactly sure what was being shown so it was easier for me to follow a video than the manual. Personally, I have a hard time following things when I read them, especially instructions, if I can follow along a video it helps understand what is in the manual. Thanks a bunch for the reply!
  25. There is an emergency access to the trunk on your ES300.
  26. Found this to easily get into trunk with this trunk emergency open on the ES300.
  27. Found a trunk emergency open accessible from the inside of the car for my ES300.
