That illuminated strip along the top part of the door is brighter when the car is in "Park." When you shift into gear, it dims about 50%.

I've had a startup image in my car for a while, and it's a lot of fun. The book also talks of a "screenoff" image, and I followed those directions pretty carefully, but can't get any image to appear....

In my experience, the compass in the rear view mirror is usually added to cars without the NAV system installed. Also, a Compass readout is, I think, available on one of the info screens on the dash,...

Rain sensing wipers are available on the RC350; I have them on my car. My window sticker shows them as a part of the "Luxury Package." My recollection is that the "auto" feature is activated by...

This is not needed of 4 door sedans. I had these in my SC430. It's a convenience feature which is more convenient the less the back seat is used.

I agree with the retired officer. If a driver is going that fast over the limit, he should expect a ticket. If his detector gave him little warning, then he needs a better one. If he got nabbed by...

I just did over 2,000 miles on my trip with my V1 and received alerts to slow down several times to avoid those annoying conversations with Officers of the Law. I usually cruised between 85 and 90,...

I've seen the red with both the light beige and the darker beige, and very much prefer the darker shade, which Lexus calls "flaxen." (This is a color combination used extensively by Ferrari.) When I...

I just did a trip of just over 2,000 miles, almost all of which was highway driving, and my average was just under 25 mpg. I kept real data for that computation, but the computer in the car gave me...

Regardless of whether you use a mount that hangs the V1 under the mirror (which is pretty low) or whether you mount it to the side of the mirror, concealing the cable takes no effort at all. I did...

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.
