I know, I'm really hard up having to spend the month of February in the warm climate of Oahu. Poor me.....my RX will be one lonely car. Oh well, I'll survive.

Leave the key fob, I'll run up and warm it up for you every so often. If I have time, I'll wash it!

Yes indeed, it does need a wash!!!
If you ever get a rock chip, you shouldn't need to look far for an airbrush artist.
Did you get the front suspension beefed up to support the weight of all that chrome??


Hit a deer with the wife's car a couple of months ago. Coulda used that nudge bar.

Yeah, I think I'll go hunting to CT soon... a lot of deers on the roads over there..
And it started raining in NY today, I guess the wash day isn't coming yet..

Mine is looking like an RXicle at the moment. A few inches of snow followed by freezing rain. Yummy! I drove through quite a bit of nasty slush this morning with an occasional spray from passing cars. I might need a chisel later between the ice and dirt

My Rx got a light sprinkling of rain today as the temps rose above freezing for the first time in a while. Tonight the temps will plunge again and the snow starts again, another fun drive to work, but thank goodness for the AWD system of the RX 450h!

I hear you Benny. The roads were ice masquerading as snow in spots this morning. It went from snow to rain and turned it crusty. Only slipped a little on a turn, normal quirk with the RX. I'm more into driving in the deep fluffy stuff. I want to do a snow rooster already

Anita, I think we are having the same weather in our respective cities this winter. It is getting really really cold again tonight, nasty. Fortunately those heated ventilated seats on the RX really work well. Now if they would just put a heated steering wheel in I'd really be happy.

I'd never had heated seats before getting my RX. They do work well, don't they? Even on the lowest setting, I have to turn it off after about five minutes, 'cause it's TOO warm!

Benny, a heated steering wheel would be heaven. My sister had it on her A6 10 years ago. A little hint, Lexus? Mine is all leather, no wood, so that's probably a little better. The bun warmers work perfectly What do you think of the heat? I know you were worried about it after my comment.

Pics will have to wait until this weekend. It was mostly rain last night into today. I went through a bunch of puddles that washed the salt away. Snow is in the forecast tomorrow night. After that the temp goes down. Guess the 450h will be dirty for a while.

Ah the original RX had the most powerful heated seats (ask my sons). The second generation had a dial with many choices and were also hot but not as much as the original one. The new one is not nearly as powerful. However, I only like my seat to be warm so they're fine for me.
My car was so dirty (every time I planned to get it washed it snowed again and all the salt on the hilly roads) I finally had it washed today. I'm sure it was splashed on the way home but I can actually tell it is a blue car now!
