Other than that, regular maintenance, tire pressure. Check to see if your RX has all the recall done, if so great, if not schedule with a dealership to get it taken care of.
that all I can think of just from top of my head. Are you planning on doing some mild modding of your RX ?
mowmow, I read some of your mod posts,
your a great help on this site. I am new to the site as i haven't even hit 1 month of lexus ownership and as soon as I got the car my mind started going nuts as to what I wanted to do. Obviously money is a big issue so its mostly just minor tweaking and I am in Canada and I compared various sites. Every time I googled something like :How can I change my ____ Lights on RX...." Club lexus would be the top link and it was always the most helpful. Hence I joined and learnt a lot from your specific posts. Thanks
I have changed the lights on the door to LED. Those lights light up the ground when you open the driver/pass door. I changed the license plate lights to LED also. And I changed The Interior dome lights to LED.
All the above went from stock yellow to bright white with a tint of blue.
I left the map lights as they are never used unless you are searching for something that fell down or reading a map
... sometimes the yellow is a better searching light.
TO DO LIST
My fog lights are still Yellow stock. I am in the process of looking for a 9006 bulb thats a similar colour to the stock hid's (any advice). I think just changing the bulb is the cheapest thing. 10-15$. for a pair of 9006
In Canada we have daytime running lights ( not sure if thats the same in USA)
they are also the stock yellow. If you look in the headlight> on the inside of the stock hid headlights is the high beam compartments. In the corner of that there is a small bulb thats just in the corner of the high beam compartment. Thats the bulb I want to change to LED or a better color bulb (Any advice on what I should use or what the bulb is)
Next summer (as winter is here in a few weeks) looking to put 20" matte black rims on it. Get high gloss black paint for the calipers. and a regular size tire as low profiles i feel, compromise the smoothness that lexus has. and part of the reason you bu this vehicle. haven't decided what type of rim yet. Probably multi spoke.
My car is the same picture as J9AVN post up just above. same color I mean.
The one thing I really want to do is change my audio> I have the non premium sound. NO
DVD/GPS/Touchscreen/Backup Cam i was looking at this:
and then maybe like a pioneer after market screen with the whole gps/nav/camera ect... as right now i don't even have an ipod connection. Gotta settle for poor quality with an fm transmitter.
however doing this I lose my steering controls.
very sad. Any where i can get the stock premium audio without taking a loan? like maybe a used one?
(ANY SUGGESSTIONS or reference to things people have done?)
other than that. keeping it stock for the most part.
btw I fell in love with the BLUE Lights in the CHROME door plate that light up the word LEXUS on all 4 doors.
Biggest seller when buying the car> And I have a black interior.
