Heh, that was just me venting. The opening on the front bumper, just below your license plate is wide open. There is nothing between a small rock and your a/c condensor. I got behind a truck that was dropping gravel on the highway at 65 MPH and it took my condensor out with a tiny puncture. Not warrantied (unfortunately I understand why) and costs $1600 for the dealer to replace.

Darn rocks. Newest mod today...rock crack on driver's side of windshield. "...if it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all...."

Default 400h rides better

Just bought a 350RX... then drove a 400h. 400h rides better due to the increased weight yet still gets better mileage. Oh well... should have done the Green thing

2008 RX400H Silver, Premium Plus Package


Bought it to replace: 2002 Lexus RX 300 with 174,000 miles

Also in the family garage:

mine 2004 V8 Touareg
mine 2005 Buell XB12SS Bike
sister's 2004 V6 Touareg
parent's 2007 V8 Infiniti FX45
brother's 2007 Range Rover Sport


Ya I know we are an SUV family with low mpg, but it is due to all the skiing, boating and winter driving we do. Hard to pull the boat, jetski and hold the dogs in a sedan. I make up for it by riding my bike most of the time unless it is raining.

Hi all, I'm new to this club. I own a 2008 Lexus RX 400h AWD, black onyx exterior with black leather trim and brown walnut accent. I had my front drive'rs and passenger's window tinted to match the factory rears. I installed factory mud guards all around and a Curt tow hitch reciever. I just ordered the factory tow wiring harness which should be installed by next week. It has all options except for the rear seat entertainment. I also own a 2006 Toyota Prius and a 1996 Subaru SVX LSi. Here is a list of my previous vehicles:

2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid
2006 Lexus RX 400h AWD
2005 Lexus GX 470
2004 Lexus GX 470
1992 Subaru SVX LSi
1965 Mustang Coupe

Default My new car!

I got the RX 400h this week after much calling around to find a dealer who would track down the color I wanted. Local dealer salesman was not very helpful - trying very hard to get me to buy what they had. Didn't even want me to order when I suggested it saying the color was no longer available. After calling a few other nearby dealers, one found me one in 20 minutes - and even offered to deal better than the local guy who wanted me to take what was there!

So ... Brandywine Mica with Ivory interior. Most everything except ML stereo and rear entertainment. Got the iPod adapter installed as well. 400 miles averaging 29.5 - we have a Prius so used to how to drive a hybrid.

How much did you cover with the film? Whole front bumper? Whole hood? Headlights? How much did it cost?

On the front window tint, did you match it to the rear windows? If so, what % VLT did you get?

Thanks.

Rich
