That is correct, they enlarged the oil return holes in the head and updated the PCV design. Sludge was not as big an issue on the updated 1MZ-FE. My 4ES is running strong at nearly 260,000 miles!

GROM shipped me a replacement VLINE with the newest firmware since mine would not update. And, I must say, it's much better now. The VLINE is actually relatively quick now for what it is, I didn't...

You can definitely have more than one VIN on Lexus owners. I have 3 for all of the Lexus I currently own, and I occasionally add a 4th when I find a car that peaks my interest. lol

Still, I'd say the OP has one of the most tastefully modded ES's on the road. I've seen it in person at a few of our Northeast Lexus meets, and it looks sick! I'm not one to mod an ES, but gotta give...

Thanks! I may experiment with it in the coming weeks. I've squeezed 26 mpg out of the RX300 before, but I just don't have the patience to drive that slow. I don't use cruise control though, i can get...

It get's easier over time. I found that I like the oil caps which slip over the oil filter the best. I now own just about every size oil filter cap, so it's a breeze. Just gotta make sure the exhaust...

Did you only remove the cross bars? Or the rails as well?

I have not, but I too remember reading about a harness change required. There are a few threads on it, perhaps a search will yield some useful results.

1) 2002 Camry was the first year for the new redesign, therefore it makes sense for it to have features the RX300 which was first debuted in 1998 (as a 99') doesn't have. My 02' ES300 has a mist...

RX300's do not have a mist function. I recall a member adding it to their 1st gen ES300, so you may be able to find the thread there. At the very least, you will need a wiper stalk from another Lexus...

It'd be nice if they could get the GROM VLINE working on our cars first before releasing another unfinished product.

I still love it, but I won't lie and say I don't have an itch to get something else after over 10 years with it. Thinking about a 2014+ GS350 or perhaps a 2013+ F Sport RX350 towards the end of this...

In some countries, the 2nd generation body style was offered with the 1MZ-FE and I believe a 5 speed auto as a 2003 model year. It was very rare. I believe the model was called RX300SE.

CarPlay does allow you to make calls through the GROM's microphone and car speakers, so yes completely through the VLINE.
