I've got a Curt hitch with a Swagman XC2 (older, all metal rack that holds bikes by the wheels with a ratcheting hook holding the frame down).

I've never used a stabilizing straps. My full...

Not a fan of the new rear either. The front is looking better and better every time I look at it. I like the wheels. Can't decide if I like the shark fin antenna. Don't like the blacked out roof,...

I have to commend whoever it is in those pictures manly enough to wear a blue polka-dotted fuschia tank top with striped shorts like a boss.

BTW, the car looks awesome.

The CT desperately needs some kind of front lower lip that is not body colored. My CT can't make it up the In-Laws' driveway, so I have to park it on the curb. I remember scraping up my front lower...

I wished the Daybreak Yellow was available when I was shopping for a CT in 2012. Apparently only in 2011 (what the sales guys said). It would look nice with a caramel interior, imo.

Should be about the same as a 3rd Gen Prius. Lots of videos out there. There's a little door that allows access to that area. Pop the fasteners and get to it.

That's nice. So, the RX lens assembly fit right into the CT reflector? Same mounting holes and screws? Did you use the RX ballasts or aftermarket?

Nice work, once again.

The CT is the entry level Lexus, so I say that if luxury is one of your primary objectives, then the CT is probably not for you. I mean, it's better than a Camry, but probably loses out to the newly...

Do you have your A/C or heater on? What about defrost (especially front)? I've noticed a big drop in MPG with A/C use, and going over 60-65 mph.
