As correctly stated above, in 2012 you can use a smartphone and play whatever you want on it through car's speakers.
For 2013+, Lexus added apps, such as Pandora.

The very first drive my RX450h took was a road trip. :D
I picked it up in Philly and drove 400 miles home. I kept different speeds and let the engine RPMs go up and down.

What exactly are you trying to get out of it? If you end up with stiffer shocks, the suspension will follow every single bump on the road and so will the body of the vehicle. It will be...

I am going to agree with the above. I am yet to see a curve on a freeway, going though which would make the RX unsettled.
In fact, there is a curve on my way to work where my IS shows its colors...

I have no issues with the suspension of the '13 RX450h. It is tuned well for what it is. Ride is just fine with 19" rims. I even nicknamed it the "couch on wheels."

Sorry, I gave up on apps a long time ago. Enform is not even installed on my phone. Wouldn't be able to tell if it was down. I guess I should re-install it.

You are correct, HID option is a mess. For some reason, Lexus decided to put halogens into RXs, particularly late years. Even Corollas have HIDs nowadays.

When stopped, keep your foot firmly on the brake. Give it gas and see if RPMs rise to 3,500. Slowly release the brake and leave 2 strips of rubber behind (ideally). ...

2013 is when the mid-cycle refresh was done. It is 1/2 generation newer.
