In all seriousness, (IIRC) I think 2-3mm is the point of replacement and 11-13mm is new. Eyeball internet ruler shows about 5mm.

The car is plenty big enough for a passenger and smaller children - especially when there is a minivan in your stable. Trunk is ample as well.

I find it odd how some people think having a...

18x8.5 Enkei T6S ET 35 with 245/40/18's all around.

This was a quick phone pic when I first put them on. I think they look better in real life then in pictures too.

Stock suspension. The wheels are much more flush than the stock wheels, but there isn't any obvious poke. I wanted something that looked like it could be OEM, but more aggressive and with much better...

Depends where you shop, but there are some pretty cheap 18's out there. DWS's are probably the best all season for actual winter conditions while maintaining some decent dry grip.

A quick phone pic - 18x8.5 ET 35 Enkei T6S with 245/40/18's all around. I was worried a bit about 18's look too small, but I love the look and pics never seem to do black wheels justice IMO.

RWD is ok in winter with the right rubber, but I prefer AWD. So much less worry when pulling into traffic or turning left across traffic.

I believe this is a carbon filter to absorb any volatile fumes from the engine. Not 100% sure, but I think that is how it was described here.

The Lexus infotainment system is pure garbage. My next car will have Android/Carplay.

I'm actually surprised how long this is taking to become mainstream though.

I was very close to an S60 R-Design. The power/torque alone was far more than the IS and felt a lot more than 19hp (could be an altitude thing as well).

Driving wise, the rest of the Lexus is more...
