Lightbulb Got my loaded 2014 CT w/ PPF. Got questions? Let me know!

I finally got my custom ordered 2014 Ultrasonic Blue Mica F Sport. It has a few rare features so I wanted to list them in case anyone had any questions regarding them, or would like photos or videos.
  • Radar cruise control with pre-collision warning
  • Parking sensors (not that rare, I know)
  • LED headlight/foglight package
  • Accessories:
    • Cargo mat
    • Cargo tray
    • Cargo net
    • Spider cargo net
    • Wheel locks
    • Rear bumper protector (the stainless steel type)
    • Key gloves (both Lexus and F Sport model)
    • Lexus dealer keychain + Lexus / F Sport logo keychain
  • Xpel Ultimate paint protection film on the front end (entire hood, bumper, headlights, foglights, fenders, mirrors, and A-pillar + first part of the roof (before the sunroof) )

The rest of the options include the F Sport leather and Lexus Display Audio packages.

Thank you! I planned to, had to wait for the film to cure and then wash the car. Will post as soon as that's done.

Thank you!

You can have both! I just didn't want navigation. $1500 just for the navigation software, Lexus Enform, and the controller. Not worth it IMHO.

In the US, the packages work like this: you have two separate paths:
  1. Seat Comfort Package > Premium Package > Leather Package (also called Luxury Package)
  2. Lexus Display Audio Package > Navigation Package

Each package includes everything in the previous package.

Congrats!.. I also have a fully loaded 2011 CT. I wish I could have parking sensors and LED fog lights but got everything else. Maybe I can change out my halogen fog lights to LED fog lights?

I don't see why not, lots of people do it. You can also change your headlights, if they're not LED.

You can also find parking sensors that go underneath your front or rear bumper, and beep when you get too close to something based on a distance you calibrate.

This is important information to have. I think I want the leather package, but without the leather seats (due to issues i have been reading about them).

I don't see how you can do that. What issues are you talking about anyway?

I haven't had the chance to do much with the car, since I work so much, but I did get the car washed for the first time yesterday. I had a moment during work to take 2 quick shots. I'll get more down the road, and use the same link:

How does the navigation compare? I have a 2012 and the nav inputs and function seem so outdated as compared to my 2013 Mini Coopers.

I've heard about the leather seats cracking. But this past weekend, I was in my friends mini and after a roadtrip of about 2 hours, we were sticking to the seat. I may have to reconsider the leather seats anyhow!

I have the Lexus Display Audio package, so no navigation.

All I know is that leather will always dry and crack if you allow it to absorb moisture without cleaning/conditioning it. I'm not aware of any specific issues with Lexus leather, but I plan to use a cleaner and conditioner on mine.

I have a leather desk chair that I didn't maintain. In 2 to 3 years, a good 30 to 40% of it is now cracking and peeling off because of moisture left on it (sweat, spills, etc.).
