Wow. 
I assumed that a Lexus dealer wouldn’t selling a car with an after market exhaust (other than a Quicksilver) as I was under the impression that such an exhaust would void the warranty.

Us Lexus owners are a bit different, we expect perfection......The dealer definitely did not appreciate this. Though he says he has 2 people he is confident will put down a deposit so we will probably

Ok that's good, I am not mad then 🙂 I think all it needs is some privacy glass as the lighter interior is very apparent from outside....was the same on my IS250 which had same colour interior. I

brembo callipers and rotors but the pads are a hybrid Brembo/Galfer affair.

There are lots of videos of this car on you tube. He is called Black Panther. I wouldn't buy this car, it hasn't had a pampered life as such. If you wanted a track car this would be fine but it is way too expensive for the mileage etc.

The salesman at Tunbridge Wells branch said to me on Sunday you would probably get them to include the standard exhaust in the deal...or at least swap it back for you.

Imagine shelling out £30k at a Lexus dealer only to later be pointed in the direction of Mr Panthaas videos or do we think Lexus Nottingham will be totally upfront :whistling:

No no, price rise was on the blue one I saw down in Kent.

Interesting that Lexus have backtracked on the black one though....you are right they may have fitted or offered the standard pipe.

Sod’s law applying in that the Nottingham one is the closest to me but also the,err...least desirable.

That car should be bound for the auctions,I’m really surprised that a Lexus dealer is trying to retail it

That's the problem. Within reason we do expect perfection. So a Lexus main dealer has the below car for sale. Its a Lexus Used Approved vehicle at price you would expect from a Lexus dealer (ie quite high). Lets be honest it won't be perfect due to age and mileage but you'd get comfort thats its approved...but read on.

What they won't tell you is that the wonderful specimen above is the one on the right below.

Having just found out about the special 6 stage paint that is the Azure Blue, I would urge anybody that goes to view this blue RCF down in deep kent to inspect the body very very carefully. As mentioned above the dealer had the bonnet resprayed and although it looked good on the surface, I was looking at it completely unaware of the special paint required. I am also 99% sure his back street body shop did not blend in the wings or bumper as he asked them to take it off the car.....

This is not to put people off, just beware 🙂

I got told by Hedge End that fitting an aftermarket exhaust would be fine and they have multiple customers running aftermarket exhaust and warrantys.

What about removal of the resonator hmmmmm?

I am planning to do that, as many have in the US....keep it for welding back in when needed.

I cant see that being an issue. I asked via email to make sure I had something in writing.

I would be wary of drone doing that though, the US lot dont seem to have a problem with bleeding ear drums given the exhaust mods some do to their daily drivers.

The black one with Armytrix.... seems to have the Bluetooth dongle/remote sensor missing to active the opening closing of the valves, you should see it sticking out under dash as it connects into the OBD port as with my one

A 15 plate red RCF with 35,000 on the clock briefly appeared on AT for £26500 at Lexus, Sidcup earlier this week. It was sold before they could put the pictures up. 

Anyone on here ?

I noticed this.

When you peruse Autotrader as a regular sad habit,as I do,you tend to notice only a few cars every year that look very underpriced...I tend to think this was one of them and someone swooped in and snapped it up...good luck to them.

I can’t think the dealership lost money on it,so someone got a poor trade in price.

All speculation of course...
