Not much is currently known about the X7 but it is known that it will be higher in the luxury category. I believe it will move into Range Rover territory.

As far as GL/GLS, it's not a larger ML...

I believe the reason they don't is because the truck shares the platform with the 4Runner and in order to do that, Toyota/Lexus will have to put more money into developing the platform to make a...

I think Lexus wants this and the RC-F to be a low volume. The M3 used to be a "special" car in that it was homologated to participate in a race. It's now gone main stream in that they sell a ton of...

Rumors suggest about $100k. Not sure if this is starting, nicely optioned, or topped out but I suspect that this vehicle will also be a very very low volume vehicle like how they expect the RC-F to...

I'm pretty sure it's not a concept as their early press release said they are releasing a new vehicle to add to the F line up at the Detroit Auto Show and the two pictures shown are teaser pics. This...

Official Terminator Genisys Trailer

I'm a huge fan of the Terminator series, particularly 1 & 2 and not so much 4. 3 was ok so I was a little skeptical about this movie but the trailer looks pretty good....

Oh. I didn't realize they weren't direct injected. If that's the case, then I assume using injector cleaner additives such as Lucas Oil will actually benefit the injectors then correct?

intake cleaning/walnut blasting

We have a 2012 RX450h and it currently has about 60500 miles. These engines are direct injected correct?

If so, has anybody done any intake cleaning due to carbon build up? We also have a 2008 335...

The reason why I mention a 19" wheel option that's more aggressive is because IMO, the 18" wheels don't fit quite right. They seem way to small for the car and the rear wheels seem like they're way...

a couple of things I'm hoping for down the road

Maybe when Lexus does a refresh, I'd like to see a couple of changes.

The first one being to the engines. Although they are proven, they're behind the times. Plain and simply, Lexus needs to go...

wish list for mid life cycle refresh
