Managed to give the car a quick dry with a drying towel between showers and get a quick coat of Soft 99 Kiwami Extreme on the car, which is great, easy to apply and beads well



Some reflection shots




and lovely shiny new mirrors, which work perfectly

New (to me) Lexus GS450h

Put an Air Con cleaner through the car tonight - great stuff, used one a year or so ago and does the job well.

The air con in the Lexus is super cold

Hi, saw in your Toyota thread about settings for door locks etc.

You could try this, not sure how up to date it is.

Thanks. Had another play around tonight, checking all the systems etc and it’s just not an option.

I have an OBD plug in on my wife’s RAV4, which does the feature I need so I have plugged that into the Lexus and will try the next time it is out. I thought I’d TechStream here to auto lock, but it’s not available there either!!!

The Avensis is all set up for auto locking without issue now







Loving having the software and access to the info. Managed to scan my wife’s car, it picked up a slightly low tire as TPMS was on, sorted tyres but light still on. Into Techstream, no issue and reset the code!

OBD plug in does not work on the Lexus. Looks like no auto door locking for me!

I'm having the same issue with the Prius, I would like to enable Auto Door Lock but it seems I can't either. Think on the newer gen cars you can but mine being a Gen 2 car it seems I can't. Oh well!

A pity. The plug in works on my wife’s new Rav (but feature not an option in Techstream) and I have been able to set the Avensis without issue!

Still plenty going on with the Lexus, before I start the winter prep - paintwork, winter tyres on etc.

A basic list from the top of my head needing done (be plenty I have missed)
