Ordered my NX in December and finally got it in mid May. I ordered the 200T F Sport AWD in Obsidian (AKA Black), Nav option, power lift gate and heated seats and steering wheel, wish F sport came with vented seats, and black on red interior. I really like the ride, especially coming from a Scion Tc it feels smoother than ever. I am looking forward to some slight customization like getting fire engine red brake calipers, adding a blow out valve to get that turbo hiss, and possibly lowering the suspension slightly. I am also a bit of a techhead so getting more out of the infotainment system would be nice too, like being able to mirror my phones display and more.

Either way cannot wait to dive into the forums and learn more about what others have already done and gather valuable intel on what has worked and what hasn't.

Dynotronics and Vivid Racing might be coming out with something.

But with the NX it might not happen as soon when compared to the RC. Demand with the RC would be higher.

Depends on the benefits that can be gained. If I can get a 10% boost in fuel economy or 15% boost in horse power I would definitely consider an ECU tune.

Even if it's just fuel economy improvements, I would look into getting it as with long-enough ownership, it'll pay for itself and eventually start paying you!

I was talking with a friend and he mentioned that when you go the ECU route, it usually voids your warranty and could cause your turbo to fail prematurely. This is something I may have to wait until someone else has had it for a while and can vouch on the added benefits.

Definitely something to consider. I would also wait for someone to vouch for it.

Patience is indeed key especially with something you wouldn't want to mess with as voiding warranty can backfire big time with a vehicle as new as the TLX.
