Kevin,

With your interest in Lexus Scotland,have you noticed on their Facebook page that they are awaiting a LC500 convertible demo in July.Its Sonic Silver with red leather apparently.

Hopefully,yours will be delivered well before then.

A J.

Just looked at their Facebook site, thanks A J. When I received an email, and my Lexus Link changed to Build in Progress. I did ring Sean, and he checked his systems, and said it was looking like late March early April. The internet says Japan has serious issues with Covid, like many other countries, so it might be later...

I read in one of your posts on, What car next?, that you wrote, my last M4. I presume you have had a couple of M4's ? I have had two M4 convertibles, and they were good...!

I don't know if you read my post to Ryan on, apple Car Play...? I thought I would write it, because I don't like reading the words... "Pathetic from Lexus..." I think Ryan is a youngster, probably not old enough to drive, and spends a lot of his time on the internet... I see one of his posts was at 3.54 AM...!

Stay safe Cheers Kevin

Kevin,Lets hope your car is being built now and then its the transport which may not be delayed by the virus.

I have no time for the comments continually made by the person you referred to.Constant moaning about a car he doesnt own .No one is forcing him to get one.I think the technical term is trolling.

Yes seen a lot of the videos and had the top down on the new convertible to check it out, love it.

i don’t think you can fault the car technically, I must say I really enjoyed my Jaguar XK coupe and the convertibles and do think Jaguar made a backward step with the introduction of the F type.

I am sure that the Lexus convertible will be the market leader as there is not much out there to contest it, and will certainly keep me happy for a couple of years, if we ever get back on the road and the Pandemic is over.

cheers

Hello Steve, I hope you and your family and friends, and any business colleagues, are all safe and well.

Good to read that you are happy with your convertible, and can’t fault it technically. Even though I am still waiting for mine, I also think it will be a market leader.

I also think, I will keep mine for a couple of years. You will see my posts in the Topic, apple Car Play, that I don’t keep my cars very long…!

I kept my helicopter for longer than any car in the last 30 years…

I am more than happy with my Coupe Sport+. I shouldn’t have waited nearly 20 years to have another Lexus…

When my partners and I, sold our Group of Companies in 2002, and I had a few more bob in the bank. I went to my local BMW Dealer and bought a BMW 750i… Thinking back it wasn’t as nice as the LS 400…!

How many Lexus’s have you owned…? Was the LC 500 Coupe your first…?

I have my Concierge set up on my Coupe, and it works very well…

Have you watched the Canadian video, where the reviewer drives it with the roof down @ -6C, and he's enjoying driving it...! The video definitely looks like it was exactly as it happened...?  The Concierge was obviously working well...! 

I would imagine that you can drive your convertible with the roof down at the moment, when you are allowed to, and the Concierge will do what it is designed to do…?

Reading the latest news about the vaccine being delivered, is encouraging…

I hope you haven’t any business problems because of the Lockdown.

Cheers

Kevin

Hello Steve, I think we will soon read posts from other Convertible owners on the Forum.

I remember another couple of convertibles that I only owned for a few months. A BMW Z4 and a Mercedes C43AMG...

I am very much looking forward to my LC 500 convertible arriving...

I think if friends of mine wanted to have a bet with me, that I wouldn't keep the LC 500 Convertible longer than I have kept other convertibles, they would lose...!

Cheers

Hi

The convertible was only my second Lexus, I had the coupe for 12 months when I ordered the convertible. My last 3 cars have been Xks, and Mercedes  SLC ‘s prior to that. As I have said I was more than happy with the jag XK Until it was decommissioned.

Although the Pandemic has seriously impacted our business, we are coping.

My wife and I are now senior citizens and we can’t wait to go on our usual outings around Lancashire with the top down. I just feel that the car needs a bigger windbreak that doesn’t seem to be available at the moment, and due to the newness of the car other manufacturers haven’t brought any out.

keep safe

cheers Steve

Hello Steve

Hopefully the Pandemic will be sorted by our Government in the next few months… The news about the vaccines being delivered, is very positive…

My Lexus Link, yesterday, changed to ‘Left The Factory’, and I also got an email. My dealer has checked, and it isn’t expected to land in the UK until 23rd February… and he says it will still be ready for delivery in March…  

I recently retired from Property Development, to spend more time at home with my wife, who has MS.

I am still currently involved with Property Development, which fortunately, can continue, with Covid restrictions.

I have bought the adjacent house, and I am extending and improving it. I also have a permission for a new build adjacent to it… 

Are you saying that the convertible needs a bigger windbreak than the one that the car comes with…? Picture attached… 

I have found the review below very interesting. It saves having to read the Owner’s Manual when my convertible finally arrives…!

I have also had an SLC, great car, but not as good as the LC 500 Convertible…! 

Stay safe

Cheers

Kevin
