    Ok, I just got a 2000 RX 300 and looked closely at the headlight and taillight assemblies. The ones on the new 2003 version are much "cooler" than the ones on my 2000 model. Can I simply buy the new versions and easily replace them? If so, about how much? Yes, I am holding on....waiting for sticker shock. But is it doable...easily?

    Try doing a search, I believe this has been discussed on this forum in the past. Very expensive proposition as I recall!

    Recently baught certified '01 RX300. It has the remote starter, but dealer says they did not receive the remote from the previous seller, Is there any way the lexus remote can be programmed to remote start the car or what are the other options?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm quite sure that remote starter is an aftermarket product, not OEM Lexus. This thread from Lexus Owners Club may be helpful:

    Hello....I'm new to this site. I just recently purchased my RX 300 and I'm looking for after market accesories. i.e....woodgrain steering wheels, clear taillights and other stuff if anyone got some info. please pass it on thanks. I don't know if it was mentioned before but I would to get some info.
  • Just bought a 2000 rx and like many people who asked the same question but still can't get to the answer. Like jov1, I am looking for a pair of aftermarket clear tail lights like those in year 2001 and above but I can't find it. And no, or don't carry them. Will sincerely appreciate your help to the real source. Thanks.
  • Can Anybody recomend a good tire... with a quiet ride and good handling.
  • I'm looking for a bumper guard that mounts to prevent front and rear end scratches (NOT the top rear bumper guard that I already have). I read Tony's message #28, but the link to the guards he recommends is no longer good. Do you (or anyone) know where I can purchase such guards? I'd prefer some kind of rubber molding, if okay looking. I'd rather NOT put grille guards or big hardware on my beautiful newly purchased champagne gold 1999 RX300. All in-put appreciated. THANKS!!!
  • grfx25,

    What tires do you have now? I have the Bridgstone Duelers on my RX and I like them.

    My installer and I are stumped as to where to place the Delphi XM Satellite Radio unit on the RX 300 dashboard. We do not want to impede the passenger side airbag, the two pull-out trays in the mid to lower front center of the between seats console, the swing-down door for the CD player/maps compartment, and we do not want to impede driver visibility by placing the unit anywhere in the driver's field of vision from the driver's seat. Any suggestions?
  • My solution to this "problem" seven months ago was to use a cell phone bracket designed to "fit" in the groove between the wood trim and the side panel of the front console. A quick google/yahoo search of lexus cell phone bracket will point you in the right direction. The Delphi XM car kit will mount with enough clearance for the glove box, does not block the driver's view, and it is low enough and to the left of the passenger seat to not be a problem with the passenger side air bag. This location also allows the driver and or the passenger to be able to "view" the unit and safely change channels. I will take a few pictures and post them for you to check it out.

    One nice option with this installation is it is a "drill" free installation, so if Lexus ever decides to come out with a satellite module that integrates into the existing system or if you need to move the Delphi to another vehicle it can removed without any trace it had ever been installed.
  • Willis, I do not use a service/place to upload pictures to the Internet to link to them, so if you would like to see the pictures of my Rx300 with the Delphi XM radio installed just send me an e-mail and I will send them to you. I tried to send them to you, but your e-mail appears to be out of date.
  • Paul - if you don't mind, I would greatly appreciate pictures of your Delphia installation. I just got my 01 RX300 and love it but am seriously missing my XM. I had the Alpine XM built-in but my husband doesn't want to upset the original Lexus equipment so told me I have to use our Delphi from the boombox. Thank you!
  • the installation pics have been sent per your request. Please let me know if they convince your husband to do the install.
  • Hi Paul,

    I appreciate if you could forward that to as I have just bought mine 04 RX330 and the first thing that I wanted to have on it is XM. Your help will be appreciated.

    thanks in advance.

    If possible, could you email the satellite install pics to me too?! (
    Also, I'm interested to know, is anyone using an input adaptor to connect their Satellite units, or are you modulating over FM? I have an '01 RX300, and am desperate for an aux input instead of cassette adaptor or FM modulation.

    Most appreciated.

    I've been looking forever for a double-wide armrest for my wife's RX300 with no luck. It seems now that I have found the PERFECT product... BUT for the PT cruiser.

    Here's a link to the pic of what I'm looking for:

    Does anyone know if there is a "Lexus" version of this anywhere out there? Those little folding thingies on the RX are my only gripe about the vehicle.

    Hi, this is Walt out in Sacramento. 11-20-04
    I too have a RX330 and would like to install the XM unit. I may discontinue my Skyfi and buy a Roady 2 and mount it in the center console (the part that clam shells open. it come with a built-in fm modulator.

    Any better ideas?

  • Does anyone know of an MP3 CD changer unit that will replace the factory CD changer in the glove compartment of my 1999 Lexus RX300? It doesn't say Nakamichi, so I'm guessing it is the base head unit.

    Proud owner of a 99 RX looking for advice on a wooden steering wheel. I know where to get one (ebay) it's just that the fitment of the 01 and up RX300's concerns me. I read somewhere that someone put a 01 wood in a 99 and the space around the airbag in between the wheel was larger than with the original wheel. Are the 99-00 air bags smaller than 01-03 or is the wheel bigger, please help. Also, dash colors available I believe are black grey or sandlwood, is this right?

  • mikeytmikeyt Posts: 22
    Also,,, etc. These should help. Just Google search the item.
  • lknmanlknman Posts: 1
    Saw your post and offer to send a picture, could I request a picture as well? Thanks

  • mikeytmikeyt Posts: 22
    I guess try ebay for the lights and lower grill, but the radiator cover might be hard. See what the dealer wants, it can't be that much.

    We just bought our RX 300 today and have been trying to figure out how to work the CD player - I guess there is supposed to be a CD changer in the glove box - is that correct? There is nothing in ours and I have seen them on E-bay but don't know how they are supposed to connect - there doesn't seem to be a plug in the glove box but appears to be a hole in it that maybe leads to a plug? Help!
