Lexus Mark Levison sound system
With regard to the radio amplifier it's disappointing to hear that a problem that has been around for three years has not been fixed.

As for the brake pad wear sensor, it is also disappointing that there is not a sensor to let you know when pads are worn out. I would agree that sensors are needed on all wheels, or at least they should be fitted to the wheels most appropriate for our market.
