It is most likely the door seals. You can also try adjusting the cross members of your roof rack but I don't think it's your roof rack or spoiler that is making the noise. I have a 99 as well and no whistle.

My mechanic recommends (Lexus also) Good Year Intregity Tires ...all purpose road tire.

I love everything about my RX300 2003 model, except the exhaust tip looks a little dinky. Does anyone know if there is a customized chrome exhaust tip for this vehicle? It would definitely enhance the look on the car.
#115 of 141 Larger wheels and tires

I just bought the 2006 RX330. I do not like the 18" wheels/tires on it and am thinking about putting 20" on. Does anyone know if this is a good idea as far as wear and tear on the suspension, gas mileage, handling, any issues with going that much bigger? Thanks!

i have a 2001 rx300 that i love. i took it in to have the sun screen - not sun roof = fixed so it wouldn't rattle and when i drove it on the freeway the first time there was huge amount of wind noise that had never occurred before. they are replacing the entire sunroof today. i also put those plastic wind shields on the windows - all around that i bought from a catalogue and the vacuum sensation when the windows are open is less oppressive.
i intend to buy one for the sunroof when i get it back.
query: does anyone out there have a grill cage/guard for their rx 300? i know of a couple that fit, but want someone who has one to give me the facts re their experience...and what model they chose.

Did you get any useful answers to this question? I just purchased a 2002 RX300 and would like the same information.

I just purchased a 2002 RX300 and asked the same question to various dealers in the Chicago area. One said that it wouldn't be cost effective to put one in using factory equipment after the fact. The other said it couldn't be done at all.
I'm going to purchase a Garmin GPS which can be mounted just above the NAV screen. It has voice instructions. Saw it demonstated at Circuit City and it has everything that a Lexus NAV system would have plus much more for less than $500.
#120 of 141 Nav Upgrade from 4.02 to 5.1

I have a '05 RX330 that I bought in March of 2005. The Nav system came with v.4.02 Map DVD. My dealer tells me they now have a version upgrade available, v.5.1 for $250.
My question is has anyone got it for a lower price, and is there much difference or change between the two versions to warrant the cost?

Having just upgraded from rev 1 to 5 I would say 5 isn't worth it, especially from 4.02. My Garmin Roadmate portable still outshines it.
