brake shields have been around for years; I had them on my 1989 Maxima. They may cut down on brake dust build-up on the wheels, but also impede brake cooling.

HID generates less heat than tungsten bulb, so of course it's not as hot. Fog light housing is smaller than headlight's, so it can get pretty hot after 2 hours, plus there is more air moving over...

for the frugal DIY type you can just buy a high-quality home air filter for $15 and cut to fit. One home air filter is enough to make several.

The active nature of the fob results in much shorter battery life; unfortunately, Lexus used an odd-sized battery that's not readily available in stores. Mine died after 1.5 years. Just ordered 5...

did they actually call it "HID" or just "xenon" or "HID-like?" Xenon just means the bulbs contain xenon gas, and does not equal "high intensity discharge." Blue-tinted bulbs of the same wattage...

if I understand it correctly, having a rolling code means that the code in the fob changes with each locking/unlocking. How can a credit card, without power source, do that?

All white--that's so 80's. Remember all the white MB's and BMW's in Miami Vice; and all the white Honda/Acura's in the early 90's?! Sometimes more is just more, not better.

don't bother--you won't be able to keep up with it--after awhile the black stain will set in. It's like trying to keep the bottom of your shoes clean.
