Definitely the back-up camera. I have been very surprised at how often first-time passengers literally say "wow" when I shift into reverse and the screen flashes to the rear view and how much repeat...

Good tip on the air vents! I will have to try redirecting mine and see if it solves the similar problem my girlfriend has reported. After the first few weeks of having my IS and having her tell me...

Not really a feature as much as an unexpected use for a feature, specifically, the auto-tilt-down side windows. I have always been obsessive about making sure I am as much inside the lines of a...

I sympathize with the frustration because I (like many here) ran into these issues when purchasing my IS. (Long story short: 6-week wait, which otherwise would have been a 3-4-month wait for a...

As others have noted, the ML difference goes beyond an extra speaker. ML does give you extra features, notably (with Nav) the ability to play DVD-Video and DVD-Audio. (Actually, I'm not sure of any...

Your original post made it sound more like a financial issue, but this sounds like you're talking more about a matter of principle (i.e., whom you are paying your money to). If you have a moral...

In audio, every link in the chain is going to have some effect on sound quality. All other things being equal, better quality in one part of the chain will mean better sound. As applied to this...

On my car, when you switch from one mode to another, the volume level returns to whatever you had it set at the last time you used that mode. (E.g., if I listen to FM at 35, then switch to CD and...

Plus better sound quality due to higher grade components. (The most important difference in my book, but YMMV.)

On the contrary, the fact that your ears couldn't handle it means you are YOUNG, with the sharp hearing of youth. Ever heard how loud old people turn up the volume on their TV's? :) And many of...

One (maybe the only) reason the dealer is offering you such a good deal on the G35 is that the redesigned '07 G35 is going to hit the lots soon. So the older generation cars are going to show their...

First of all, don't panic. You have not yet confirmed that it's a lux package and not a sport package. It might be that the discrepancy in MSRP is from some other add-ons, etc. that the dealer is...

I like it fine. It's certainly a much nicer solution for hanging a coat than tacking it onto the above-door hook, and it's also a handy place to hang a wet umbrella as I learned this morning. Plus...

I have not fully figured this out yet, so this answer might be dead wrong. (It does not help that there is not really a standardized content for DVD-A discs--i.e., some have a high-rez 2-channel...

On the issue of the tC vs. the IS, I guess the better way to express my view is that I think the tC is evocative of the IS, more than that the two cars actually look closely alike. Hard to explain,...

I respectfully suggest that you are more sensitive to the existence or lack of "windshield eyebrows" than the vast majority of people. It's not a feature I ever notice on other cars, and I certainly...

I would say that the tC definitely bears a much closer resemblance to the IS than a Camry does. If I were 10 years younger, I could sure see myself driving a tC. It is a sweet little car.

P.S....

Looking at the pics of the new Camry on the Toyota website, all I see is a vague Toyota-family resemblance to the IS. Overall, I doubt anyone would ever mistake an '06 IS for an '07 Camry or vice...
