For my 2005, I am 100% certain that in addition to getting the color coded sensors ( assuming new ), you need to program them into the car and a typical Lexus dealer charges about $100 for it.

At 575+ I think you are doing OK - just a touch high but not crazy high like at the Lexus dealer. Online parts purchase would have been about $250 for the 4 sensors at best. Mount and balance would...

Yeah, when I had my old OEM 5 spoke twisties on, my kid said he liked Mandy's Tourmalines better. Both my kid and Mandy's Tourmalines pressured me into getting the TSW Nurburging.

Started lurking before I bought my SC off lease in 2008. Owned her for 6 years and still a faithful daily driver. I guess that makes me an old timer. This is the best forum I know of. :thumbup:

My 2005 has a clear lens over the tiny bulb on both passenger and driver's side. It is about 1.5"x 0.75" and can be removed quite easily as long as you put pressure on the correct tabs.
