Lexus officially announced the 2005 Lexus Rx330 pricing on Sept 3:
"The RX 330 luxury utility vehicle has been enhanced for 2005 by adding the power rear liftgate, 8-way power passenger seat, and a wood steering wheel and shift knob to the list of standard features. The available Lexus Navigation System gets upgraded software, and adds voice activation and Bluetooth® capability. Both RX models get a price increase of $500 with the MSRP for the RX 330 FWD model at $35,775 and the RX 330 AWD model at $37,175."
Some dealerships here in Southern California already have some 2005 models in stock with additional vehicles arriving in the next few weeks.
According to my local dealer, the EPA mileage for the 2005 Lexus RX330 has been reduced by 1 mpg compared to the 2004 models. Although the dealer did not have an explanation, I wonder if this reduction is a result of changes made to the computer-controlled transmission to improve acceleration and remove the transmission lag some people have complained about.

Hmmmm ... from what I've seen, they're on ALL 05s with the HIDs .... you can go to www.lexus.com and build a car and the packages sent out in your area will come up. You'll see that the AFS are on all cars with HIDs.

Does any one know of a web site that sells Lexus OEM parts such as wiper blade inserts, air cabin filters, etc.

They have some RX330 parts, such as the interior cabin filters.
I had good success with them on some BMW accessories.
#3186 of 3942 6 disc CD changer

Seems like the in dash 6 disc is now a separate option on the new packages coming out as well. Before it seemed included in the Premium Packages and up, now it seems to be an option.
On the Lexus website it looks like it's with the package, but then it's listed again as a separate option under that. When pricing on websites I have noticed I have to add the 6 disc in dash for $500 to make the MSRP add up to the one on the Lexus site.
