So the CarPlay is still in beta and from what I understand they are still undergoing certification for it; likely why it isn't shown on the page for the VLite itself. It works perfectly though so far...

No, bad idea. That will not get the car to operating temperature, instead you'll just end up with oil fuel dilution.

OP, let the car sit on a battery tender and drive it when you are ready.

Nothing, it's their job; let them figure it out.

IMO, looks like a rear main seal leak. Hard to tell from the picture. I wonder if they will try to blame it on the visible damage.

That's because the video on step 3 is of a Toyota Sienna. Only the video in step 1 is a ES350, the rest are different cars.

There is no dipstick in the ES350 for the transmission fluid.

I think that's a great price! However, you should factor in another timing belt replacement if it was last changed in 2008.
