I've heard some V300 Vertex Editions have Rear wheel Steering. Can you confirm if yours does have this system.
Also would be nice to get some pictures of this system at some point, along with your thoughts on how/if it improves handling.

I'm not sure if the car is equipped with rear steering. It's going to the shop on Tuesday so it will be up on the lift for a close inspection. I'll keep you informed.

All JZS161 has ARS (Active Rear Steering). At least I had one in mine. It just looks like another steering rack, electric steering rack. The system replaces the Rear Toe Arm.
