    Has anybody used the Night Vision System? I heard it works well but can't really imagine how it works.

    Here's a photo of what it does....I believe it uses an IR beam to scan the road, enhances the image, then projects it onto the screen/windshield. Actually, IR systems like this are superior to brighter headlamps. Not sure about the Toyota/Lexus system, but other systems I've seen light are so bright, you don't even need headlights to see!

    The Lexus USA website has a very good description and explanation on how it functions.

    Looks slick, but I'd rather have e-code HID low beams.
