    Very nice! I looked at this car in the very same dealership you bought from (I'm in your area) and liked it but my priorities are different so I picked a Prius 2 instead for its lower price and more room, giving up on the luxury you enjoy in your Lexus. But you made an outstanding choice, no doubt about it!

    Very happy with mine here too after 4k miles, although it's not the F-Sport.

    Decided to do the mods myself instead of waiting for the F's.

    Pulled over 50mpg (calculated) on the last tank full.

    Impressive!
    One of your coming projects could be (in my opinion) to change door sills to illuminated ones.

    I'm hoping that the EPA testing was performed with the 'performance' tyres Lexus sells the car with, along with warnings of possible 20k mileage. A more fuel economical tyre just might bring the CT up to Prius level economy except in driving where the higher Cd becomes the overriding factor.

    As you can see in my signature, my real mileage (indicated though) easily surpass EPA sticker, more easily than with my former Prius (same driving habits).
    Having said that, I have to wait to the winter numbers, have the car since May. With Prius I had about 5% hit on mileage during winter (not so cold and wet in my area).

    I can't speak for all CT200h owners, but mine was sold with LRR tyres. Michelin Primacy MXM4's. (I swapped in lightweight wheels, but kept the stock tires as I didn't want to pooch mileage).

    "Most Primacy MXM4 tires meet Michelin's Green X standard* for low rolling resistance that confirms the tire's contribution to reducing vehicle fuel consumption and emissions of CO2 gases." - The Tire Rack

    Further info from a Motor Trend article: Green and Grippy: Michelin's Primacy MXM4 Tire - Motor Trend

    "According to Michelin, the MXM4 will stop up to 19 feet shorter in wet conditions than the ContiProContact, and in back-to-back testing in a pair of identical BMW 328i sedans, your author was able to stop 23 feet shorter on the Michelin tire. A second test, pitting the same cars against one another on a wet handling course, saw your author take 2 seconds off the lap time by switching from the Continental tire to the Michelin tire."

    They call it 'Green and Grippy'. I can't say I disagree. My mileage has been excellent, and handling has also been excellent, especially with the CT200h lowered and with lightweight wheels.
