I for one proud that my IS is an auto - too painful to row the gears in traffic jam at the beginning/end of the long work day. Go auto:D

A hum coming from the back.

Search but did not find anything on the SC430 forum - my bad if it's already mentioned before. When all windows are rolled up and the engine is running, I can hear a constant (small) hum coming from...

Same here - way better with a quick twist (speed and precision). Looking around for the rocker buttons on the steering wheel is not ideal and bound to hit the Next and Back button. Anyway, congrats...

Not the end of the world if you have two fronts that are different, but it's best to use the same brand and rotate them so they wear out about the same time. Also, it looks down right cheap (I'm...

Of my 3 cars, the SC will be least likely to go - will try to hold on to her as long as I can. Like Kaisersea1 said, it's most likely depends on the repair bill for me also.

I really don't care if it's accurate or not. I kinda like the distinction of 'claim to fame' from the OP. Now I got something to brag to family and friends.:woohoo:

We don't have that much snow here, only rain. I have summer tires on mine so when there's a chance of snow I take the RX.

Anyone guess is as good as any. But, in the IS recall, they reprogram the ecu to over ride the acceleration if brake pedal is detected, change out the brake pedal for a smaller one, made sure the...

Yep, lots of Toyota share V6 engines (Camary, Highlander, Sienna, Solara, ES, RX etc.). As for gasoline for the RX330, I've used both the 87 and 92 octane (Mostly 87 (90% of the time) unless gas is...

Yep, they do pretty well in the Seattle rain also. Currently, clocking at 34k miles on them. Probably will go with the Solus KL21 as noz34me stated above once mine need replacing.
