Is anybody using CD-Changer?
In Canada we have a premium package for $4,950 that include:
Leather Seat Surfaces
Tires: P215/45R17 AS
Wheels: 17" Aluminum Alloy
Power Moonroof
6-Disc CD Changer
10 Speakers
Driver Seat Memory System
Garage Door Opener
Mirrors Linked to Seat Memory
Rain Sensing Wipers
Auto-Dimming Side View Mirrors
Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirror w/Backup Camera (Includes compass.)
I think CD-Changers are obsolete in MP3+USB age?

Tires: P215/45R17 - don't see any advantage of going to larger rim tires. Can anybody educate me what is their advantage over 205/55R16?
In Canada with winter 6-months out of 12, what is the point of going to wider tires?

Driver Seat Memory - would be the only feature that I see useful (but paying 5K extra for this feature is a bit too much).

Are there any use of backup camera in such a small car?

We have a lower package Touring Package $1950
Tires: P215/45R17 AS
Wheels: 17" Aluminum Alloy
Power Moonroof
I'll select only Power Moonroof, and skip the 17in tires, as I don't see any advantage to them.
What would be the price difference between P215/45R17 vs. P205/55R16?
I would like to ask them for a credit.

I would like to get a memory seats option but I don't think, they will special order for me considering, those models are going off the lot as soon as they can get them and on top of it the situation in Japan.

I don't know anyone who uses MP3/USB. Everyone I know listens to the radio or CDs. I prefer the radio, actually. Something about the element of surprise. I don't want to know the next song that will play. Surprise me. If I don't like it, I flip it. For moods when I want to hear a special CD, like for holidays, then I'll pop in a CD. Someone I know used to listen to audio books in the car. Also, it takes time to download music. Not many people I know take the time to do that. Might be an age thing (I'm in the middle aged crowd.)
I'm not young either :-/ but I think the CD's are thing of the past.
1.) There is very little difference between quality of the MP3 recording vs. WAV
2.) Most of the time CD only include few hits of a given artist and the rest of the recording are junk. I usually rip my CD and collect only the songs I like it (convert them to MP3).
3.) CD only holds about 12-songs (+/-5), on a USB stick I can have hundreds.

If Lexus was smart they should have added solid-state drive (SSD); I'm sure it would be cheaper, take less room than the CD Changer and be more practical. I think they were rushing the first model to the market and went with the flow.
