With the black, I think I'd try using liquid shoe polish. Perhaps it will work, but, unless you rub on it with a coarse cloth, it shouldn't make things any worse. With a color other than black,...

What I find interesting is the way that Toyota and Lexus seem to want to remake their image to one of a company that makes "bold" and exciting vehicles.

Toyota put the "bold" (to me, ugly)...

I have no knowledge of when the 2016 ES will be available, but my guess is that it will be very early relative to when new model year vehicles are customarily available.

In the same vein, when does a steering wheel have so many buttons on it that using them becomes a distraction to driving? To my taste, the steering wheel on the 2016 ES has a very cluttered look,...
