  1. bugatti veyron.....lol. spell check, it took me 10 attempts to get it to say " veyron "
  2. Its not a trap they have fallen into, over the years i have come to the conclusion not to take any notice of magazine or TV programs concerning car reviews, they either don't take the car on its own merit or the journalist / TV presenter's have there preferred manufacturer. Other than looks the RC & RC-F are two different cars, insurance, fuel and running costs for a start, then ride comfort the RC is a lot more comfortable. But silly me, as per usual the RC is not fast enough, its 0-60 is to slow and it doesn't go round corners on two wheels so buy a RC-F, in fact don't bother , buy a Baguette Veyron you can pick up a cheep one for a Mill.

    the Blue was definitely a limited colour for the limited addition LC. there was no other blue closet to it although the Azure Blue available on the RC-F is a close match as for the yellow limited addition i can't work out if its a new yellow or not, you my have to ask the dealership on that one, the interior has the yellow door insert and white/light grey seats. https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/lexuslc?source=feed_text

    I haven't herd anything about another limited addition LC only a convertible and the "F" the yellow LC available now is not my cup of tea colour wise, but must admit looks amazing in bright sunlight your unlikely to get any type of discount on the LC, other than buying a second hand / demo one. as for performance, i haven't driven a f type but i would think it would be a lot faster, if your set on performance then i would sagest the LC is not the car for you, its quick enough for me but the LC was not built for neck breaking performance, more of a GT cruiser

    Considering a used LC500

    The dealership's ceramic coating is not that good, they only use a basic coating which you can buy and do yourself. I have had this done on my last 3 cars and have been very happy with it, it is expensive your probably looking around £700 / £1000 mark depending on the amount of paint correction needed and coating used. http://www.theultimatefinish.co.uk/car-care-blog/new-car-protection/lexus-lc-500-v8/

    I am pretty sure that Sonic red is not just a LC colour , Lexus have had this colour for a few years now on various models so I am quite sure they can match it otherwise they would not have mentioned a smart repair, they also no how us Lexus owners require perfection with our cars

    New LC500 Sport+

    its like any new car when you first drive it, you fiddling with every thing while on the move, its all new to you, once you get to no were everything is its easy. I can honestly say i have touched my track pad while on the move no more than 5 times in 10 months, every thing i need is on the steering wheel or voice controlled, and as for the climate control as Malcolm has said "climate concierge" takes care of that.

    New LC500 Sport+

    Hi Jon, Not much to look out for, if you are buying new then i expect that the re call for the high pressure fuel pumps will have been done, if your looking at a pre owned then just make sure it has been done. very much doubt your get any discount on a new car, and iam not sure how long the wait will be for a new one, what i do no is that you are going to enjoy your 2 days

  13. i have Bridestones
  14. I understand that run flats would cause a less comfortable ride BUT my LC with run flats drives a lot smother that my RC-Fwhich did not have run flats even if i put the LC into sports mode so it must be down to the suspension
  15. The LC is the first car i have had with run flat tyres and i admit to not making long out of the way journeys, but isn't the ideal of run flat tyres is that you can carry on driving on them even if you have a puncher, admittedly at a reduced speed, ok if you smash into the curb or large pot hole you could rip the side of the tyre which then of course you could not drive on it.
