It seems EXTREMELY unlikely that VDIM will be an option, not standard.

If anyone goes to the LA Auto Show this week, can you please share some photos of the new RX? Thanks.
#73 of 284 2010 RX.......A BIG DISSAPPOINTMENT!!!

2010 RX350 is a big dissapointment. Some will like it and buy just because of "L".
Exterior looks like a love child between Camry and Highlander. Interior does not have a luxury feeling like other Lexus models and the angular/swoop dash is kinda innovative but not sure if many will like it. Nice tech gadgets but what a waste when the car as a complete package is big let down. Didn't expect this from Lexus on their best selling car and a bench mark for luxury SUV's.

But then maybe we're getting a truly functional AWD system, maybe even R/AWD.
But no word yet on DFI or not....??
But how are there implementing the Atkinson cycle on the RX450h's V6...??
I have always assumed that would require some sort of intake backflow prevention such as a reed valve as used in 2-cycle engines, or going over to the Miller cycle's positive displacement SuperCharger as Mazda did with the V6 in the Millennia S.
#75 of 284 REAR CAMERA
Nov 20, 2008 (4:28 pm)
Is there a rear camera without having to buy the navigation system. I have an 06
without the nav and will probably look elsewhere if the nav and rear camera are not separated.

Yeah, Sanish, I'm having a hard time taking to the new strange and weird-looking lines of the 2010 RX. What a shame. I really like my '07 RX350 so much! It just does everything so well! Well, it was bound to happen.
This reminds me of the new Acura TL. You take a car that's been hugely popular in its previous generation and then it becomes close to impossible to live up to the expectations for the new generation model that comes up. To me, it's not just Lexus and Acura that are facing this problem. I also think that some of the changes on the new Infinitis, such as the FX are having the same problem. I still like the previous gen FX and the
previous gen G35 coupe better than the current versions that are out on the road today.
Oh, well. At this point, I'm kind of pinning my hopes on the new
Audi Q5. I've been seeing several around town(probably being driven by salesmen or managers at the dealership, as the car won't be on sale until supposedly March of 2009). So far that's a sweet-looking car! Right now, I guess it's a good thing I still have a little less than two years left on my lease. That way Audi can iron out any bugs on the Q5, as I'm not so sure reliability would be quite as good as my Lexus.
