  1. Hello, I have two questions. I am wanting to put chrome rims on my car. Does anyone know if the stock ones can be chrome dipped? I thought I heard that was possible. If not, where is the best place to buy rims? I am thinking the Lexus dealership will be a lot more expensive for them. Will call them just to get a price. Also, I thought I read somewhere once NOT to use Armor-All on the interior. Is that correct? If so, what would be the best product to use for my interior. I have the black/grey interior. The black part is starting to look dull and show signs of a few light spots throughout. I feel like it needs to "shine" again. Thanks for your help!
  2. My trunk is not opening anymore with either the key or the button inside the car. Does anyone know why? I can't find anything in the manual about it. I am getting tired of using the key to open it up. UGH! Thanks for the help. :D
  3. Hello, I would like to put chrome rims on my wheels. Has anyone ever tried to chrome the existing stock ones that come with the car? Also, if that is not a feasible option, what's the best place to buy them (like a national chain for instance). I am assuming they would be a lot more through the Lexus dealership. Also, no problems with tinting windows right? I am scheduled to have them done next week. Think it will make the car a lot better looking, not to mention a little cooler inside the cabin. It's already getting warm over here on California central coast (thankfully!) B) Thanks.
  4. I must need to have my car serviced, because I've tried several times to change the setting to "off" for having the screen go automatically to the maps. It looks like it should be a very simple thing to do yet it doesn't work for me. Anyone else experience this? Thanks.
  5. I found out that the motion override has to be done each time you re-start the car. Bummer; wish it would just stay that way--oh well, I guess it's better than nothing. <_<
  6. Hi. Can the audio screen be set to be the default screen when the car is turned on? I just always get the navigation map screen. I tried a suggestion someone else had but it didn't work for me. Thanks. :)
  7. Thanks so much for motion overrride directions! Now my last wish would be that the audio screen would be the default screen as opposed to the maps. Is that possible? Thank you!
  8. I've read on some other members' posts about a motion override code for the nav system. Does anyone know the code or where I can find it. I have an '06 GS 430. Thanks.
  9. Thanks for the help with the blank screen--the map voice seems to have brought it back to the "I agree" screen again. Also, I tried to get the Audio screen to be the default screen per instructions, but it is not working for me. I have a GS '06 model; the photo reply to my question looks to be a newer model. I will have to go back through the manual again. Maybe I should update the navigation disc; does this change features like that (defaults, etc.)? Thanks for all the help!
  10. I decided to turn off the screen one day because I was tired of looking at the navigation maps all the time. It will not stay on audio (frustrating). Of course now I can't get the screen back on. What's the secret to get the screen back on? Thanks.
  11. Can anyone tell me if they have the Maroon red paint color on their 2006 GS 430. I seem to have little paint "chips" all over the hood. Please tell me that the paint on this car is not that fragile. Has anyone else had issues with this? I read a few posts about the black color being that way. Thanks. Also, best way to wash it? I have only had it for about 3 weeks and have had it hand washed a couple of times. I seem to notice that these little "chips" appeared after I was FAR behind a concrete truck yesterday and am hoping this is not permanent! HELP! Thanks
  12. Oh, forgot to ask on last post: has anyone had a good i-pod system integrated into their car? If so, can you tell me which one and the cost please. Thanks.
  13. Hello, Anyone successfully transferred their phone book to the bluetooth? I followed the directions on page 242-243 of the owners manual, but the screen that says "overwrite" or "transfer" on the Data Transfer screen does not come up. It just says to have the phone transfer the numbers over. Anyone know how to do that? Thanks!
  14. ps----hubby burst in on that last reply........I'm a mom of two and it is a lot of work but the most wonderful experience you will ever have...I'm gonna cry now because it's so sweet......some friends of ours just announced the same thing last week! It is the coolest thing that a guy is that excited to be a dad! congratulations!!!!
