I have not heard or read before that gauges shut down under adverse conditions, unless the condition itself causes the shutdown (e.g.: melts or shorts out a wire or a sensor). When my cars overheat,...

I don't know what "temperature gauge was at zero" means. There is no zero on a car's temp gauge. If you mean the needle was pinned at the bottom, then it was inoperative and that's a cause for...

Who cares about "some"? I think they look pretty good, and really enhance the blue.

That 1.5 is more than I would have guessed, but I'm not particularly tall and so that is not a difference I would notice. I have a few tall friends (some of my best friends are tall), and one has...

The moonroof in the RC does not reduce headroom nearly as much as a moonroof does in most other cars, I think. Due to the curvature of the roofline of the car, the moonfoof retracts outside the...

I have read that some of that weight comes from the frame parts in the RC that come from the IS convertible. This is heavier due to the stiffness needed in a convertible frame. The result is that we...

That 5 for the RC is pretty low, and no Caddy since 1959 deserves more than a 6. Audis have all looked the same since the 5000, and get a 5 for blandness, just like most BMWs. This appearance thing...

"Earns a front row from parking attendants" means the car look spectacular, and for someone as vain and as superficial as me, that's a major reason for buying a car. Also, every review I have seen...

Pressure of about 35 is fine. I don't think there is any need to go higher.
Why would you want to put a 2nd tier brand of tire on a 1st tier car? Don't do it. There is a reason Michelin is more...

What you did wrong was burn an untested, untried ISO file of a copy protected file system to a DVD of unknown quality, probably without setting the booktype. Copies of NAV DVD data discs are very,...

I find that there are times when I don't want the tilting, so it's nice to be able to turn it off. Also, unlike on my previous cars, as noted above, the position of each mirror can be set for the...

I understand that spoilers can be installed with adhesive (scotch double backed tape?) and that this is sometimes done. In fact, as my spoiler was installed by an out-of-state dealer from whom we...

Jay,
I had a similar reaction, as I had read the brochure pretty well to look at what options were available. I even had the accessories book, but didn't see the spoiler as that book appeared to be...

It's not included in any of the "Packages," but it is a Lexus RC part. In the US, it's not even mentioned in the RC brochure, but is shown in a smaller "Accessories" brochure. I would think any...

If you are installing a V-1, I recommend you consider the Savy. Not only does it make installation an easy five minute process, it adds a nice feature of self muting alerts when the car is moving...

Considering the etymology of the expression "you suck," it means that's a pretty heavy meatball to leave laying out there on the table just because the RC owner has to fold his own mirror, should he...

My "ecru" (white) interior in my old SC430 was very hard to keep clean, and I did not put a lot of miles on it. I like a lighter interior on a dark colored car, to give it some definition, but this...

Lexus has had a very impressive white for a few years now - the best I have ever seen. It's a metallic paint with lots of reflective gold and silver bits in it. But right now, I'm pretty sure that...

I don't think the lack of motorized folding mirrors rises to the level of "sucks," and perhaps those BMW guys just have smaller garages, but my guess is that this option would be little requested in...

Frog: The exterior mirrors will fold in, but motorized folding is not an option on the RC. That is an option generally made available on larger SUVs, and sometimes on the not-all-that-large SUVs.

I just saw a car with Playa, and it had a distinctly yellowish cast. I would suggest looking at the "flaxen" interior, which is a medium tan.
