Greetings from Sydney. Picked up my titanium (atomic silver) NX Last weekend and absolutely love it. Done 1300kms with 6.4 L/100km fuel consumption. Will keep trying see if I can beat official 5.7L/ 100km. Cheers Jason

Great to have you here on the forum and glad that you are liking the NX so far. What vehicles have you owned in the past? Anything you'd like to change or add to the NX?

Hi Mister~ This is my first Lexus. I just sold my 2006 Mazda 3 as it's time to move on~ I really want Lexus to design a proper space for drivers to put sunglasses. The space under the vanity mirror is just a pain to use.
Other than I haven't drive long enough to spot anything to improve :)

When your biggest complaint is the lack of a sunglasses holder, I think that you are doing alright.

Welcome to the forum!

Not bad feedback for someone that has already done 1300KMs.

Are you planning to get any accessories/modifications?

Keep us posted on how your experience goes as you rack up more km's.

Speaking of accessories, there must be something that works well to hold your sunglasses. Has anyone found a good fix?

So far I'm still enjoying the stock setting of the car. The only modification I can think about is something like this:

Will keep you guys posted on how I feel after 5000kms and if I got any good mods :)

Thanks mate. I got 4 days off so did a road trip and that's how I got my 1300kms :)

To beat the mileage is not easy....especailly it's winter in Sydney now.
When I start the car at 5 AM in the morning, the engine also start to warm up the battery or whatever.
Have to drive it for about 10 mins to see the motor running.

I'll take it as a practice season see what can I achieve in winter and then do a serious test in summer. But to be honest, I will be more than happy to anything below 6.0L/100KM.

Will definitely post a photo if I luckily beat the official mileage

you got it ~ I got 4 days off and took the car around the state, from mountains to coast, and yes~good way to break the engine in.

According to the manual, my first service will be at 15000kms.
I don't know if I should do it that late as this figure looks a bit scary to me...:eek:

Nothing like hitting the mountains, trekking through the rock mountains has always been on my list, at times a bit discouraging since i'm all the way on the east coast and it's on the other end!
