Default What did you do to your GS today?

just finished washing mine using Pinnacle wash and pinnacle liquid wax afterwards. I used a leaf blower to assist in drying off the car I also washed the wife's 2013 Accord Coupe. Ready for the rain now

After dinner, I went back over the windows and cleaned off a few drops that had accumulated.

Nothing glamorous - PSI was down to 30 all around - added about 3lbs in each tire.

Blew the soot out with a few WOT runs from a running-start to over 100 mph. Always enjoyable.

Default leather seats

I just got a 2016 GS350 and thought the front seats leather is somewhat stiff, so I treated twice with Mothers, but no change so it may be a tougher material.
Any thoughts?

Car leather seats are typically treated with a sealer to keep anything from soaking into the leather to prevent staining. So leather treatment or conditioner probably won't have much of an effect on the leather.

Replaced the driver side mirror cap since mine had a nasty paint chip out of it. OEM painted part from Lexus was a perfect match and install was under half an hour.

Also installed OEM painted mud guards that I ordered from a Toyota dealer in Japan. Great fit and again, perfect paint match.

May I ask: How much did you pay for the painted mud guards? Seen them on eBay for $340+

Those are probably the same parts I picked up. Selling for $300 before shipping.

Gotcha...Did you need to drill holes to get them to mount correctly?
