#102 of 141 Altering my ride
Oct 21, 2005 (3:35 pm)
I have a 2000 RX300, and I like it a lot. But to be honest, I always have found it a little too soft riding. I switched to H-rated severe weather tires (Nokian) and that firmed it up a bit.
Any thoughts or experiences about firming it up a bit more, without going insane? I don't expect that TRD will have much - this isn't a TRD-target car. I have never altered springs/shocks/antisway bars. The service writer suggested I might get some help if I upsize the wheels/tires, which I could consider.
Thanks in advance for any help. Tim

We never received an owners manual for our 2000 rx300. Does anyone know how to program the garage door opener buttons above the driver's sun visor?

#106 of 141 Re: What about the rear cargo cover for RX 300?
Dec 02, 2005 (4:46 pm)
I just bought a used 1999 RX 300 and love the car but the original owner lost the rear cargo cover. I am told that an original OEM cargo cover is about $600 but I can't even find that on any Lexus web site. The only place I can find the RX 300 cargo cover for sale is on eBay and it's all auctions. Any suggestion on where to find an aftermarket cargo cover for the RX 300?

Google™ found this one for $149.95:

I had the same problem when I bought my 2000. I think the new price was a little under $600. I checked on the internet, and found a place that discounted Lexus parts - that brought it down to about $450 or so.
Eventually I actually bought mine off eBay for $125+$15 shipping, and it was absolutely mint. Even if it were not, it would have been hard to argue with the price difference. I looked at completed auctions - they tend to go for $150-175.
Other than these options, you could try places that part out wrecked cars, but I tried a couple of those and had no luck. Tim

Can anyone steer me in the right direction to get a NAV update for 2002 RX300? Can they be installed by owner or is it too complicated?
#111 of 141 Help! Wind-whistle from RX 300!!
Dec 19, 2005 (11:12 am)
We just a bought a 99 RX 300 in great condition, but every time we get over 65 mph, we hear this wind whistle. We know it is not the windows, but can't figure if it's from the tires or from the roof rack &/or spoiler. Can anyone give us any help???
