  1. I will do a report after the test drive in 2 weeks, it will only be on private ground, so iam not sure how far we will be able to go, the LC demos are not in our showrooms yet. i have looked and read most of the reviews, but like the RC-F reviews most negative reviews are about the car being to heavy, not enough power, etc, i don't know why Lexus insist on using race tracks for the journalists and car reviewers to drive the cars on, they immediately assume its supposed to be a sports car, even though Lexus themselves have said its a luxury coupe. The NX has pretty good reviews, but i bet if the launched the NX at a racetrack the reviews would have been very different. I love my RC-F, i would just like something with a little more comfortable ride, i knew the RC was going to be fairly firm, and test driving it on a race track wasn't the best option for me to asses that, although it was great fun, but you don't get many pot holes or speed bumps on a race track.
  2. No problem , thank you for your reply, i have asked the same question on a US forum, they have said it seems easer to get in and out of the LC because the seat bolsters are not so high and the entry scuff plates are also lower, ill find out in a couple of weeks when i test drive the LC. the red one in your photo, is it a metallic red.
  3. i am very happy with it, very easy to keep the car clean and as you can see still looks great after 2 years, once its on you shouldn't polish your car only use wax, i use R222 i had it done from new, you can't buy the crystal serum and DIY, its only sold to registered detailing studies, i used Ultimate Finish at brands hatch. https://www.theultimatefinish.co.uk/car-care-blog/new-car-protection/lexus-rc-f-born-on-fuji-speedway-protected-at-brands-hatch/ i will defiantly have it done on my next car.
  4. Well i have a test drive in the LC next month, so lets wait and see.

  8. i think i look really good in that dress, pitty my handbag doesn't match.
  9. iam test driving the LC in 2 weeks, so far I'm can't see anything i don't like, my only concern is how low the car is and at my age,( and getting older ) am i going to be able to get out of the LC with some sort of dignity.lol.
  10. My RC-F will be coming up for sale very soon, so watch this space
  11. Because the LC is not a "F", its a GT coupe, wait until the "F" LC comes out next year then compare them
  12. I do around a 3/4 mile commute to work, and although the engine temperature reaches normal running temperature in that time, the oil and transition temperature only gets to around a quarter, the RC-F starts at 3500 reeves when you first start it and will increase the revs allowed as it walms up, in the depth of winter i can travel my hole journey to work before it reaches the 7200 rev, i don't think the open vents at the front help, in my option they should have automatic flaps that only open when needed, i would think this would improve m.p.g.
  13. good choice of car and colour combination :-) hopefully test driving the LC in a week or so, it will be interesting to see how different they are.
  14. Hi Colin i hope you are well, i have read quite a lot from the US forum concerning squeaky brakes, in some cases Lexus have made a re-call as shown below, others have changed there pads to softer ones which reduces the squeal quite a lot, the problem is softer pads causes more break dust, they don't last as long, and you can't track your car with them.
  15. Hi Phil, Have you also sat in a RC-F, i am trying to determine weather the seating position is lower in the LC than the RC-F, i tend to fall out of the RC so if the LC is even lower ill have to come out on all fours.lol
  16. if your wheels are really bad you can use purple rain or dragons breath, spray on, leave 5 mins, jet wash of, job done, then after applying a couple of coats of Gechniq C5 alloy wheel armour you can just wash them with your normal car shampoo.
  17. It's mainly for the press, they should have explained to you that it's wasn't a finished production car, the RCF's we test drove in Madrid were the same but we were told this, I surprise it's not worth using all the top great materials is the car is only going to be used by the press and for magazine reviews then scrapped, I believe all 10 RCF,s we drove in Madrid were scraped after being used for 3 weeks,
  18. was it a full production model, if you go on Utube there are a few reviews and most say that the cars that they are testing are not full production model's, i think this also included the ones tested in Madrid at the Aracari race track.
  19. I use standard unleaded, runs perfectly ok, I only do short trips ( 2500 miles p/a ), the last two tanks I did put in shell V power, only because I got an offer on it I haven't noticed and difference in power or mpg. As I only do short trips I may use V power for a couple of fill ups just to help keep the engine clean. Red X costs around £5 for two tank fills, so it's no more expensive to use the premium fuel
  20. was lucky enough to get to sit in a LFA, start it a give it a couple of blips on the throttle, unfortunately was not given the chance to take it for a spin. LC500 looks very nice, will be interesting to see it in the flesh and to see how it drives.
  21. i just smile at the Lady on the service desk and say if you don't give me 15% of ill buy a BMW that seems to work, have just paid £478 for the second year 20k service on my RC-F. should have been £545
  22. I did love my GS 450h f-sport and its a car i could quite easily go back to.i only had it 4 years but did not have any issues at all, although i only covered around 12k.
  23. iam not sure what all this " RC-F taken a big hit " is all about, a basic M4 coupe costs 58K new, they have a 2015 M4 coupe on the BMW website with 18k on the clock up for 40K which you will probably get for 38K ish so whats the difference? and 58K is the basic price with no added options, the one for sale has a few added options so the initial cost was probably over 58K.
