Hello fellow Tlx owners!
So I purchased my 21 TypeS about a month ago now, its sitting on 600 miles

Ive noticed a flew sounds ( because I actually lower the amazing sound system and listen for anyyyyything) when breaking the first few pumps follow by a clicking noise, dont know where its coming from but it does this every time, mostly on reverse breaking!

also, when driving(any mode)normal acceleration and coming to a slow stop, i hear a click noise when the transmission lowers in gears and comes to a stop. Mostly when driving from light to light, its almost like the transmission disengages the gear when coming to stop and you hear the mechanism. Its not easily noticeable because the car drives perfectly normal, not vibrating not lag no loss of power, but when no music is on and your ears are wide open you will hear it.

any fellow TLX owners with a 10AT trans experience this?

No, 21 Advance. It used to be far worse with my steering wheel/horn area. I had to bang it about 1000 times around the perimiter of the horn. Its almost like something had to be broken in. Clicks to the left, clicks to the right. Play my music to drown it out , and even that doesnt work properly time to time.

Does anyone have a suggestion for conditioning the top of the dashboard under the windshield?

Looking to start conditioning it before sun start's doing damage.

If you have a seat leather conditioner recommendation it would also be appreciated.

For both the dash leather and the seats, I completely and without reservation recommend:

Leatherique Rejuvenator and Pristine Clean

You need both...the products are described on the web site. Their online store sells a kit of one eight ounce bottle of each for $30, which is a good place to start and will last you quite awhile if used as directed.

Suggest you also get a windshield sun shade. Be careful of what you treat the dash with, anything that leaves a glossy appearance will cause glare on the windshield. For that reason I use Griots leather care on my Porsche turbo leather dash board.

I agree with this, I hear the same thing.
