I should expect counterfeit product for this price but it was worth giving it a try. Beware of the seller, after submitting photo evidence, he was still insisting that the plugs are genuine - stay away from this person. Had to pick up genuine plugs from local dealership and do a comparison.
I’ll start my review with a huge thumbs-up to Lexus Hedge End. They’re consistently a pleasure to deal with but this time one of their sales guys and true petrol head, Michael, really pulled out the stops for me... I’ve been given a LC500 as a courtesy car. So, “how does it compare to the GSF on a rain-soaked February afternoon?” I hear you all ask...
Talking to Ratty the other day about Kitt - his new RC-F. He pretty much confirmed what all RC-F owners know - the RC-F gets lots of attention and comments.

Here's some of my favs -
Whilst waiting at junction, two teenage lads walked by. Lad A said to Lad B - "Oooooo - Lexus.....................................................LOOSER!!!"
Whilst driving slowly through town, a young lad said to his dad - "Daddy - that car makes my ears hurt". The dad just smiled
Sat in a traffic jam. Couple in the car behind were having an argument. I blipped the throttle. The woman s*** herself, then they both immediately started laughing. Marriage guidance by Lexus
Drove past a bus stop (I was in the passenger sear). About 15 school kids queued up, all heads down looking at their phones. All looked up, and syncro swivelled their heads as we went past.
Joining the M5, I applied suitable pedal pressure whilst driving down the slip round. I joined in front of a family in a people carrier. Driver kept flashing me. Initially I thought he was angry, but he was actually giving it the thumbs up. I let him pass and then overtook him. He'd wound the window down just to hear a V8
Let's hear you stories - I know @Comedian has some!
Introduction & Styling
The Lexus NX is certainly a car that stands out and even turns heads. You may have noticed that Lexus have been keen to capitalise on this with the many adverts featuring a certain Mr. will.i.am and the car in question. Lexus are clearly making a bold statement with this car and it shows, particularly when it comes to the F Sport version with its far more pronounced version of the trademark Lexus spindle grill. If you’re familiar with the Lexus range then the styling and indeed the F Sport version should come as no surprise. The company has been busy over the last couple of years updating its range to the new family face and indeed the trend is continuing with the new 2016 Lexus RX that we’ll start to see on the roads early next year.
The LC500 is available as a 5.0 litre V8 which is bred from the race-track or if you are after something a little less aggressive and eco-friendly then look no further than the LC500h which is powered by a 3.5 litre V6 and hybrid motors.
Available in standard trim, Sport or Sport+ versions are offered with very little difference in price between them.
The LC500 that we road tested was the 5.0 litre V8 with Sport+ Pack.
