I chose not to have mine installed, but I have it sitting in my glove compartment, ready to whip out onto my dashboard, just in case. I heard Los Angeles County is strict on front license plates.

In stock with Michelins was the only way I was buying.

Mine (a Special Order ES300H UL) came with Bridgestones, but I had negotiated an extra $250 off if it didnít arrive on Michelinís. Drove the BSs ~ 2k miles and then replaced them with Michelin Premier A/S, and I can notice the difference. Full disclosure: I am a 42 year Michelin retiree and spent several years designing tires for Toyota/Lexus!

Last two ESs came with Bridgestones. Dealer swapped them out for Michelin’s, no problem.

My car was rattling from the window/door lock panel. So I added velcro and electrical tape to quiet it down.

Sweet! What size and offset are your rims and what size are you tires? Did the ride quality change? If so, is it very noticeable?

Is the rattling from the 300h or the 350?

Decided to get the trunk carpet mat. Here is the before


Here is the after. The carpet has a rubberized backing and stays in place. The carpet is plush and my trunk organizer no longer needs to be tied down to stop it from sliding around. The mat is described as black but has a grey note to it. It isnít as dark as the trunk lining or the floor mats. Sprung for the genuine Lexus accessory at $100. I saw some custom fit trunk mats on amazon for about half the price. Iím on the fence weather the genuine lexus article was worth the extra $50.

I like that! I tried to get the WeatherTech liner for the trunk, but they don't have it, yet. This might be a good alternative.
