    F-Sport Crowdsource

    Crowdsourcing can be a powerful tool for understanding people, their thoughts, feelings, and interactions. Often, these observations lend themselves well to enhancing products and services.

    For this reason, we are excited to announce the forthcoming launch of The Lexus Performance Registry. Until now, enthusiasts would gather in-person, or online in forums like Club Lexus.

    Lexus is welcoming this community with open arms and providing a gathering place with a geographically-tagged map, where Lexus owners can share their car, location, and modifications. There is an emphasis on F-Sport-equipped cars, but all are welcome.

    To sign up early, check out this link on The Lexus Enthusiast, one of our favorite car blogs. They have arranged for an exclusive early registration program, so have at it. If you join through The Lexus Enthusiast, Club Lexus, or My.IS, you will automatically be identified as a member of that group, too. Pretty cool to see everyone getting along with each other.

    Airport Friendly

    As the saying goes, "There are those who travel, and those who travel well." We have come to know our guests as the latter. That's why we are pleased to share these travel tips with you...

    Since 9/11 airport security has tightened significantly. While that is mostly a blessing, negotiating long security lines can be cumbersome, even downright annoying.

    And just when we thought the TSA was taking about as much initiative to streamline their process as does the DMV, they went and did something to totally redeem themselves: they offered to work with companies to develop airport friendly products that do not need to be removed for security screening.

    These products include, but are not limited to, laptop bags, shoes, and belts. These three are the approved styles of laptop bag:

    • Laptop bags must have a separate compartment that folds flat for the computer, and the computer may not be obstructed by pockets, zippers, or accessories of any sort.
    • Shoes must be steel-free, including linings and structural support.
    • Belts must not have steel buckles.

    If there is enough interest in this article and the products it mentions, we might even stock some new items in our Parts department, so please let us know what you think.

    Oh, and one more friendly reminder, from us to you: schedule your next vehicle service when you plan to fly out of town; leave the car with us (for up to 3 days); receive complimentary shuttle rides to and from SJC (during business hours), and save the money you would have spent on long-term parking to, you know, buy that chic laptop bag.

    A Swift Dance Partner in the French Riviera

    Judging by the number of times everyone has viewed our LFA posts, we're assuming you'd like to see more. So here you have it, a graceful dancer, epic scenery, and a legendary locale. Close the door to your office, drift away to the Côte d'Azur, and play the part of Brigitte Bardot in the arms of Lexus' white knight, if only for 3 minutes.
