Nope. I tried, but could not get him down. It was basically the price. It is a long story, but I walked over $150, and he caved. He obviously won... Or maybe I did???

It might not appeal to everyone, but I must say, it is a real clean install and really took some skill to do. Amazing what people do to customize their rides!

If I am not mistaken, the second gen RX has galvanized body panels, so rust should not be much of an issue. Not sure if the new ones also have this.

I would disagree that they are working as designed. To me, it appears to be a design flaw. The seal should be sealed as there are vents on the back. Plus, the seam faces the front, where driving in...

The IS is pretty nice! If I were looking for a sedan, that woudl have been my choice. You can't go wrong with that. Much better than any VW/Audi, just too expensive to own.
