Greetings everyone.

Just picked up an atomic silver NX200t yesterday. Love it especially in Sport mode. Looking forward to the weekend and the first road trip.

Wondering what everyone's MPG has been thus far.

Cheers

Is the road trip this weekend, or is that happening further in the future?

Most MPGs are coming in around 26 mpg I think. Sometimes slightly below that. Basically in line with what Lexus said it should be.

Congrats on the purchase!

Welcome :)

How many miles have you managed to put on your NX200T so far?
Have you started looking into accessories to get?

I believe I am at 74 miles. Basically just the mileage from the dealership to the house and then the office today.

I did order a cargo mat online from a California Lexus dealer. Was looking for the WeatherTech floor mats, but they are not offering them yet for the NX. Will pick up some bodyside moldings online and install them myself. Dealers are really marking up some of the basic accessories.

Any recommended vendors to buy from?

Greetings...

26 MPG isn't too bad before any type of break-in period.

Road trip this weekend will just be for a few hours, not a long journey yet. Those will have to wait for some future long weekends.

How has your NX been thus far?

Not sure of any vendors aside from Lexus but Sewell Lexus might be cheaper. I know if you're a member on Club Lexus you get a discount on parts from Sewell Lexus

I just ordered the body moldings & mud flaps from <http://factorylexusparts.com/nx200t/>. They're also a CL vendor & you can use the discount code "CL5" for an extra 10% off. Cheapest I've found w/ free shipping.

Great! Thanks for adding that in.
Nothing better than getting it right from the source and for the cheapest available price.

I think it's even good enough that other dealers may not want to match their price, but it would still be worth trying.

I fear how the mudguards will look, never liked them on any vehicle i've owned but still in for seeing how they'll look on the NX.
What helps is the NX has a black plastic liner running along the fender which helps a mudguard to blend in.

Mudguards can look cheap sometimes no matter what car they are on. THey should blend in as much as possible instead of being this nice looking thing.

No they don't.

Some vehicles just look right with them. This is a luxury SUV, not something folks would be in favor of having this on as much as they'd be on other vehicles.

But the vehicles that look good with them are usually trucks and semis. These are parts that are meant to get dirty. It's not like there really are luxurious versions of mud guards. They serve a purpose, but that purpose isn't good looks.
