When I look at the front lower part under the seat, it's basically a whole plastic "shroud" across the bottom. I can gently jiggle it -- it's connected but not immovable.

And for thousands less, you could have gotten a loaded Camry V6, leather and all, same basic car as Lexus, but without the fancy name. Maybe a really good choice for a daily driver for the wife. ...

Less "what"? Anyway, sounds like you chose a basic 528i "stripper" -- that's your own issue. There is no plastic steering wheel in any F10. I doubt it really feels like a Jetta, but with the vinyl...

+1. I haven't owned ANY car out of warranty since 2003. That's the way to go.

Only if it's a separate "album" to the hdd. You can't add individual tracks to an existing album/playlist.

The solution to CA locking/unlocking due to hose water hitting the handle is to place the fob in the car while washing it. The OP had the key in the running car. This (rain water) is not the cause...

The atrocious mouse system in the Lexus should be a showstopper for anyone, IMO. I again rode in my wife's friends 4th RX3xx, and drove it, and the mouse and total interface is awful. Take, for...

The engine was running during all of this? That may be the "key". If the fob was still in the car and the center dash lock button was used, it thought you were still in the car. Since then the...

Unless I'm mistaken, the Modern Line was dropped for the 3 as well, maybe before dropping the 5. In fact, I hate the "lines" idea altogether. It's simply a marketing ploy to increase the cost. ...

As you may know, the unpopular "Modern Line" was dropped the year after it was introduced. There were probably many factors, possibly including the unnecessarily individualized key fob.

WOW! What is that, acid? Some of you guys clean too much I'm afraid. Less is usually better I've found. Good luck with the damage. Always test a new product on an inconspicuous place.

So you've never sat in an F10 with standard seats? Nowhere near "cheap" or bench-like. Undoubtedly the multi-contours afford many more adjustments, but there's nothing crappy about the standard...

Pictures on a slant are "fun" sometimes for effect -- but for every picture? It's actually hard to "see" the car at those angles. Looks clean, not sure what else you want to do to it.
