No GS-F at the Toronto auto show earlier this winter either, which was disappointing. Based on the pictures, I don't think I like how it looks, but I wanted to see it in person because some cars look...

When you say "rain sensing off" do you mean just that the "auto" light is off? If so, there is a separate procedure you have to follow to disable the rain sensing mode completely and have...

Is that the OEM Lexus one? I was looking at these on the Lexus Europe site and wishing they'd sell them here in Canada. North American models list a tow rating of "not recommended" whereas European...

All the "snow" button does is make the car start out in 2nd gear instead of 1st. It does make it easier to get rolling without as much wheelspin. But it sounds like wiredup would like MORE wheelspin,...

You would want to do the opposite of that, actually. Disable traction control while keeping VSC on. Doing that will allow you to get some wheel spin going on to get "unstuck" and is the main reason...

XM traffic was useless for me. The updates were too infrequent, only provided at all during business hours (whereas most of my driving is evenings and weekends), and only covered highways, so I'd get...

I had several 3-4 hour commutes in the past couple of months, total distance about 50 miles each time. I was still pretty comfortable at the end of each of those, and it's an easy car to drive in...

Yes, but only the button inside the trunk lid does both close and open. The button near the driver's seat only opens, as does the button on the outside to the right of the license plate.

I read about that in the manual a long time ago, but haven't seen it happen in my car. But I don't drive in manual mode in the snow either, so I guess that would be why. I'm not sure what triggers...

When I am on the road next to a noisy car, there is a pedal on the floor I can press and it makes the other car quieter. And also smaller. It's pretty neat.

This being my first full winter with the GS and those same tires, they're definitely much better in snow than the Michelin all-seasons. And really good in dry (but cold) conditions, unlike some of...

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.

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...

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...
