I will be very interested to see the final pricing for the GS-F. One reason I ended up going for the GS instead of some of the competing cars with more power, is that the more powerful versions of...

I don't think there is. It's brighter with the car in park, and dims down quite a bit once you put it in gear.

My dealer also goes a bit crazy with the tire pressure and it makes the ride harsher...

I've read the issue with running the tank dry in modern cars is not with getting it started again, but rather that the fuel pump can be damaged. The pump is cooled by the fuel flowing through it,...

I'm not sure if the noise mine makes is the same one you're talking about. I notice it most around 50 MPH at light throttle, and is a very high pitched sound like a little jet engine. But very, very...

I don't like to give it the beans until the engine is warmed up. At this time of year, where I live, my commute is short enough the engine never does warm all the way up. So WOT has to wait for a...

RES+ is not available for the GS at all, as far as I know, and never has been. The RES+ tab doesn't even appear on the compatibility web page when you select GS 350.

The current GS also has that PTC heater when you get the cold weather package or equivalent (e.g. all Canadian models have it). It's not very powerful (a few hundred watts) but it does start to take...

How quickly does the rest of the wheel feel as warm as the sides with this mod? I ask because my commute is really short, and it gets really cold here, so I'd like the whole wheel to be warm in 30-60...

If the heated steering wheel is important to you, just wanted to make sure you know the entire wheel is not heated, only the grip areas at the side are. This is the thing I dislike most about the car...

That's not really their main purpose though. Dirty headlights with HID bulbs will cause a glare problem for other drivers way before they stop lighting up the road effectively. The main reason for...

I've tried to do this before and found the cruise control won't engage in manual mode, unfortunately.

Anyway I agree this is about the tuning of the cruise control, though may not be for economy...

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...

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.

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...

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.
