  1. I currently have an 08 ES 350 w/nav & satelite radio and would like to get an ipod integration kit. Most Dallas area dealerships are wanting $650 or more for a complete installation. Way too much. Which of these aftermarket kits should I go with? Pros and cons are appreciated. Does anyone know of a Dallas area installer? Thanks.
  2. No change in tire pressure that I'm aware of. My previous 24 mpg is combined city and highway. Yes, traffic can be very stop and go here in Dallas especially during rush hour.
  3. I have a 08 ES 350 with 4900 miles on it. I recently took it to the dealership for its 5000 service. Prior to this I was averaging 24 mpg in the city. After the service I'm only getting 22 mpg. Should this happening? What can I do to increase this? Thanks. P.S. I did change to synthetic oil.
  4. Is it normal that when I start my 08 ES 350 the engine seems to sound very clanky or almost like a diesel engine for lack of a better way to describe it. Well, maybe not as load as a diesel engine but very different from what I think it should sound. This seems to smooth out after a few minutes. I've noticed this since the weather has gotten colder (I live in Dallas). When I took it to the dealer, they say this is normal and there is nothing wrong. A service advisor says it probably sounds this way because the oil hasn't had time to go throughout the system. They say they compared my car to another vehicle and didn't hear any difference. Are they feeding me a boatload of crap? I like everything about the car with this one exception.
  5. How do you remove the bulb cover which is located underneath the side view mirrors? These lights come on when you unlock the car. I'd like to change the bulbs to LED's for my 08 ES350. Thanks.

  7. AVG MPG vs. Tank AVG MPG. I've noticed that I average 19.4 for average mpg but the tank average mpg is usually higher which is about 23.4. What's the difference? With my combined city and highway driving I would like to assume I'm getting 23.4 mpg. Is this a good assumption?
  8. I WANT TO CHANGE THE FRONT INTERIOR AMBER FLOOR LIGHTING TO A LED BULB ON MY 08 ES 350. HOW DO YOU REMOVE THIS BULB? WHAT SIZE DOES IT TAKE? I USUALLY ORDER FROM SUPERBRIGHTLEDS.COM. THANKS.
