I saw your post about smashing a rim on your brand new GS. Still hurts just to think about that.

The AWD system on the RX is very different. It has no center differential at all, just a clutch to...

Yeah I just had to pull three clips out of each side. Still managed to lose one somewhere, though. Such is life.

I went with the Philips X-treme Vision 921 LED bulbs. Here's a comparison during...

Just changed out my reverse lights for LEDs and can confirm this--the fasteners for the trunk liner don't have any special way of releasing them, you just have to pull hard enough on them. They're...

Not so, the 70/30 torque split happens because of the mechanical design of the center differential, so is there in all modes. The "50/50" split described in several places is done by locking up the...

I've been really surprised how good Starfire Pearl makes the car look under a streetlamp at night. It glows and sparkles even more than it does in the sun. Looks even better if it's been rained on.

Can't help you with a part number, but our Canadian 2014's have those wheels in colour called "Liquid Graphite". So says the brochure anyway. I don't think US models got that colour, they got the...

These don't seem to be available in colours other than red (at least for the 7440 and 7443 versions I would need for turn signals on a 2014 GS). Is that the case?

Yeah, the thing with that is polarized sunglasses are particularly effective at filtering out light that grazed off a surface at a low angle, like road glare from a sunset. Unfortunately the HUD also...

Overall height of RWD models is 57.3 inches. For AWD models that increases to 57.9 inches. So there should be an additional 0.6 inches of wheel gap when equipped with the same wheels and tires.

Tapping into mirror power?

MSRP should be the same at any dealer, but that doesn't really matter, because dealers can and often do sell for less than that. It's worth getting a quote from several different dealers. That gives...

I had the same impression after test driving the GS and the 5-Series... the 4GS is a better handling, more fun to drive car.

I tend to keep my cars a really long time, so after the 4GS I'll probably end up with something that has AWD with an electric motor per wheel. It'll be powered by fusion, or celery, or something.
