Nebula Grey is a really sharp paint job - pictures don't really do it justice. I avoided it because I didn't think it looked dark enough, but in the real world it looks a lot darker (which is a good...

I vaguely recall a couple of months ago looking at tire reviews, and some people said those Pirellis were great at first, but got much noisier once they wore in a bit. I can't remember where I saw...

Am I the only one who doesn't like that positioning of the DRLs? To me it looks really untidy not having them integrated in the headlamp housings.

We had a decent amount of snow in Toronto this week, and I had to drive across the city twice during the messiest part of it. After that, I couldn't even tell what colour my car is any more....

Sadly not. While it has 'auto-locate' meaning it figures out which sensor is at which corner of the car, it doesn't have 'auto-learn' where it will pick up entirely new sensors on its own. If you get...

Regular xenon is usually just the low beams, and the high beams are separate units (e.g. halogen projectors). Bi-xenon means it's for both low and high beams. Typically it's not the bulb that's...

When I bought mine a year ago, the dealer took just under $5k off the MSRP. Then there was a promo for $2k delivery credit for cash deals that month (but it's $2k after taxes, so really like $1,700...

The good thing about using summer tires in the winter is you will never hear any tire noise. The screams of the driver will drown it out.

Follow-up: I did end up getting LM-32s, and so far they seem like a very good choice for the kind of winter weather we get in Toronto. That is: cold, with dry roads much of the time, while still...

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...

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.

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?

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.
