"Are 2013 ES's holding resale value as they always have?" (my guess) :confused:

Trade-in value should be around $26k. See what CarMax offers and go from there, if you're really not interested in keeping it.

Yeah, that damage usually occurs during the winter months around here. They lay salt for the first few storms, then mix it with sand when they determine their salt levels are running scarce. The...

Definitely not hype. I'm 6'4" and without it, the seat bottom is way too short, as in most cars. It's one of my favorite features!

Nice job on the roof! I think the front grill center and rear valance are nice touches, too. Not a huge fan of the blacked out wheels, though. I know others are, so I may be in the minority. It's...

Seems pretty clear in the 350 manual (pg46/PDF pg25): LINK (http://drivers.lexus.com/t3Portal/document/om/OM33A11U/pdf/Topic02_U.pdf) :confused:

Weird, It's very noticeable on mine. The wheel gets much stiffer.

It does apply to the 350.

I drive mainly in Sport mode. When I was driving it daily, I averaged slightly below 26mpg's. That was about 50mi/day round trip, in some stop and go traffic, but mostly...

The only real problem I've encountered when a product's production was moved to another country, was Beck's beer. They now brew the US version in St. Louis. It shares almost no resemblance to the...

If you can share those fees with us, it would be easier to determine your actual price. But, my rough estimate looks like you're getting over 13% off MSRP, which would be the best deal I've seen from...

If by "OTD" you mean with, no trade, plus tax, title, etc... That sounds like a screaming deal. If there's a trade involved, that's meaningless.
If you mean $42,500 is the negotiated price off of...

I'm in IL and haven't had a front plate on my cars since the mid 80's. You'll get stopped more for window tint, than no front plate.

Not sure what you mean by painting the plate black, but it...

I think a lot of people were. I just found mine in the glove-box a few months ago! I had no idea. :) I will never use them, though. They make the key even bigger.

I don't know. If you take a pressure washer and place it at the right angle, the spray can get through pretty much any seal. Like I said, my wife's 2010 CR-V has this issue at a specific car wash. It...
