My last oil fill was Mobil 0W-30. Still running it.
0W oil will flow better than 5W oil at cold temps. I'm guessing the reason Lexus didn't recommend it is because it didn't exist or wasn't...

He's running Win7. You probably have the XP-only version (like me). I happened to have an old rickety XP laptop that I installed it on and it worked. If you don't have one you could run a virtual...

Yes I see this as well on my 03. They take a while before you can feel anything and even then they never really get very warm at all. In contrast to my 11 Subaru's seat heaters they really suck.
