I wouldn't buy a BMW, even with a warranty. It's just not worth the hassle. LOL about the BMW X5 battery story. You just can't make this stuff up!

I saw a new GX460 in the showroom and it was...

I personally dislike brushed aluminum. It's cold and cheap looking IMO. The LX interior has nice curves to the dash and so does the '05 GX, but the new GX dash is boxy looking and reminds me of the...

Good luck with your GX ny888! You've done everything right so far. If your tire pressure light does come on again don't forget to check the spare! If that's not it, you may have a slow leak in one...

I'm waiting for the re-designed GX to come out before I sell my '05. I sure hope it retains all it's good points and unique styling, otherwise I'll have to get something else instead.

I don't like the arm rests either. Too narrow and not long enough!

I might be interested in a center console as well. The only problem I see is the removal of the existing arm rests if one does...

FYI fellow GX owners, I ordered the bumper cover yesterday. It comes primed and costs $265+tax. According to my auto body guy I've used for years, it's a 3 stage paint job and the total cost to...

Rear Bumper Cover Cost for 2005 GX?

Anyone know how much an OEM white rear bumper cover for a 2005 GX cost? Dented mine last night backing into something and must replace.

Sound advice, but wouldn't you have to pay sales tax where you purchase the vehicle (if there is a state sales tax), or at time you register in your state? Just curious.

They do not look that much different than in my '05. I couldn't tell how to take the old arm rests off last night. It could be simple and I just don't see it, or very difficult and I don't want to...

Either model would do the trick. The only thing to say here is that the LX is a little bigger, but a little worse on gas. If it's a matter of style, then I would choose the GX IMHO. I would test...

It appears that Lexus is styling their SUV's similar to the Toyota SUV line. IMO, there's very little styling diffs. Just look at the Highlander. The LX 570 has a similar base style to it even...

Thanks for the tip "Sickntired!" Tryed it last night and it made a difference. It also proves that it works on '05 GX models for anyone else having this issue.
