Correct, if AFS, then the headlights are HID. You might want to contact your local service department and/or bring it in to have them diagnose the flickering.

I own a 2006 400h and have found that it has more wind/road noise than my wife's 2012 IS250, and my previous company cars (Ford Fusion, Ford Taurus and Chevy Impala).

Looks good! I'm in the same boat as you, I had to modify the look of my RX so it wouldn't look like just another "Costco Cruiser" :)

I have 20x8.5 +25 with 255/45/20 tires and the Eibach pro kit installed on my 2006 AWD RX400h.

I learned that people install their phone screen protectors in a steamy bathroom to control dust.

Too bad I didn't know that when I installed my new covers.

I'm interested to find out what the cause is as well. I've got a 2006 AWD 400h with almost 95k miles.

Steering wheel looks great!

Headlights are impressive as well. Did you buy a modified set, or did a shop mod them for you?

Oh man, ever since I got the front lip, I've been afraid to look at rear lips, as it will eventually lead to buying side skirts!

Have you tried a fabric glue? Should be pretty easy to find at a local Walmart or Target. My wife and I have made repairs to our microfiber sofa, hats, etc..with the stuff.

The set in your eBay link appear to be exactly like mine!

The rubber seems to be good quality and I haven't noticed any premature wear.

Thanks for the projector links. So tempting!!

Hey Jake:
It is part of an aluminum pedal set that I got from either eBay or Amazon (can't remember) for $40-$50. The set includes the footrest, gas, brake and parking brake pedals.
