That must be something unique to Canada. I can't recall seeing a Lexus split-dealership like that here in the U.S....from what I've seen, they are all stand-alone. In fact, I might be wrong, but I...

Yes, that's certainly true....but I also believe that if a genuine opportunity to save money comes along (and not have the vehicle suffer for it), take it.

When I had my Lexus IS300, the filter...

Oh, I agree. Even though I listed two reasons explaining it, I wasn't necessarily trying to imply otherwise....especially compared to the gauges you'll find in, say, an Audi RS4 or BMW M3. And I, for...

That's why I explained it, line by line. Bitkahuna has better computer skills than I do, and was able to graphically enclose that area.

Thanks, bit. Your diagram is basically correct. It took me a little while to fully-understand the system myself, even after a couple of test-drives and actual ownership. On this car, the Buick...

Agreed. The new dash looks alike something out of a 12K econobox. And that tacked-on video screen doesn't do it any favors, either.
