Lexus was created by Toyota dude. Many Lexus models are sold outside the US as Toyotas.

Supersaiyan - There's hard to reach, and then there's just bad. The RXs filter is on the front of the block, wedged between the block, catalyst, and radiator. Nearly impossible to change bare-armed without buring yourself.

what sucks about lexus.... is that a lot of parts may be the same exact part as on it's toyota counterpart.... but have different part #'s......

and the RSX wouldn't be nearly as bad.... if it weren't for the supercharger...

Couldn't find the instructions again for the SLR, but basically..

There are 26 steps, and the first step is "remove engine from vehicle" (paraphrasing)

When I swapped the carb on my 88 Accord, NIGHTMARE!!! There are millions of vacuum hoses. It took me three tries to get them all back where they needed to be. Yay for winter beaters! Everything else has been simple, brakes, shocks, upper control arms.
