  1. Hi and help!

    i could understand it showing 8mpg before the 30 mile test drive as the car has possibly been moved around the forecourt and the engine left running, but 8mpg after the test drive seems very low to me, I got 17mpg from my RC-F and the LC is around the same, thats traveling very short trips though. I would expect to get 19/22/under normal length driving trips, depending on how it was driven.
  2. mine is, picked up September, 805 miles, i think it looks very nice sitting on the driveway. lol
  3. I expect most owners of the RC-F have it on pcp which means the 3 years are coming up, so the oldest RC-F you can buy will be 3 years old, i don't expect you can get one for less than £30k, so your £30k - £35k is around the mim selling mark,
  4. Top gear lc500

    I was hoping that with the new Top Gear bunch that they might start comparing cars that are in the same category, obversely NOT. I understood it with Clarkson and co who have never been fans of the Lexus brand ( except perhaps the LFA ) only Quentin Willson years back had any passion for Lexus ( he owned a LS400 ) The LC500 is NOT a track car its a GT curser.next they will be pitching against a F1 car.
  5. ISF PX value

    i would think the PX value would be determined on what you are PX against, if they are going to make a huge profit on the car your PX against then they can offer you a much better PX value on your car. how much they would give you CASH with no PX would give you a better value of your car.
  6. V8 Recall?

    iam not surprised, they have had this fault on the RC-F since it was released in the US.
  7. Picked Mine Up Today!

    17 m.p.g, but very short trips.
  8. Problems Encountered with the LC500

    Julian what with my alarm and your seat rattle both happening in could weather i think we both need to move to a warmer country,
  9. Problems Encountered with the LC500

    nope mine have been fine, the only issue i have is the alarm going of early hours of the morning, we have narrowed it down to very cold morning's and condensation inside the car, problem is although the alarm going of shows up on the download there are no fault codes coming up. so there's nothing they can do, just have to see how it goes, have had it back 2 weeks now and so far the alarm has not gone of, but then we also haven't had any very cold mornings.
  10. Hi Ben, the adaptive cruse control has 3 settings, you possibly have it set on it's most sensitive, i have altered mine to the middle one and find this works for me,
  11. Long LC Review

    the only annoying thing i have found is when another car gives way to you and lets you come through a gap the car thinks your going to hit it head on and you get the word "BRAKE" come up, and a annoying BEEP, i have managed to alter the sensitivity so it doest happen quite as ofteren now. every thing else works great
  12. Thieving Gits

    i finger tighten mine then give them a another quarter of a turn with something similar to this. mine is a lot smaller, around 5" long it stops the kids from being able to undo them. i normally just loosen them when the car goes in for a service other wise they think the valves caps have welded themselves to the valve stem. i keep it in the centre arm rest so its handy if i need it.
  13. Enjoy the LC Ben, and i hope you issue free, you may want to consider some sort of paint protection, make,s cleaning the car a breeze.

    Get yourself a couple of thees Ben https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-Keyless-Key-Entry-Fob-Guard-Signal-Blocker-Faraday-Bag-Version-for-Phone/232535957664?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&utm_source=LexusOwnersClubUK&utm_medium=ForumLinks&utm_source=LexusOwnersClubUK&utm_medium=ForumLinks
  15. How do you see Blue?

    I looked at clear wrap when i got my RC-F, as Linas.P says it depends on how long you intend to keep the car, other than the odd chip hear and there i would say that 90% of stone chips are on the front bumper, so it depends a lot on your driving patten, I had my RC-F for 27 months and all i had was a very small chip about the size of a pin head on my bumper, but I hardly spend any time on the motorway which is were i would expect you would pick up most chips. for the price of a wrap you could probably get the hole front bumper re sprayed 4 times
  16. SatNav Miles Setting

    I rang them today, they are waiting on Lexus technical to tell them what to do next, apparently the alarm has not go off in the past 12 days they have had it, but that's not unusual as I left the car for 2 weeks when I went away and it didn't go off. I emailed Lexus UK and told them of my concerns, so we will see what they say, like you I wouldn't of used the car a couple of days this week due to the bad weather, but at least it would be nice to have the option.
  17. SatNav Miles Setting

    No i haven't heard anything since last Friday, iam getting really fed up now, its unlike then not to at least give me a update, the last I heard they were going to look at the ECU that controls the Alarm. i will give them a chance to put it right first and see what they end up doing but if iam not happy with the car when i get it back then ill decide what iam going to do. i will expect some sort of compensation
  18. SatNav Miles Setting

    the glass breakage sensors are built into the glass on the LC, on all the other models they are fixed separately onto the glass, i have raised my concern about rattles and squeaks, they have there top technician working on the car, even so ill just keep taking it back if i hear the slightest noise, should hopefully hear something by the end of the week
  19. SatNav Miles Setting

    i will have to have a look at mine, if and when i get it back to see if it is showing KM or miles, its been at Lexus for over a week , they can't seem to sort out the alarm, they are having to take out the back seat to get to the alarm ECU, and they may even have to strip the interior out of the car to replace all the windows as apparently the glass breakage sensors are now built into the glass rather than attached to it. iam not very happy
  20. rear seat access

    I had the seat moving forward issue with my RC-F, when you lift the handle and move the back of the seat forward try pushing the back of the seat towards the steering wheel, because its a new car the seat is a bit stiff, for the first few times it my need a little help, also in time the leather will get supple and the back of the seat will fall further forward by itself triggering the switch. if this doesn't work then its a trip back to the dealer ship.
  21. iam going to have to buy a LC-F now so i can join.
  22. Firstly I would like to say that I don't no the person or have anything to do with the company selling this product i don't, no do any of my friends or family make this product I just thought I would let you all no of a cheep product that would help keep you pride and joy safer. after reading on this form about potential theft of our loved Lexus cars, and how they can now use a detector from out side your house and scan for your keys anywhere in your house I decided do give this product a go, and can say that it works perfectly, once the keys were in the pouch I stood next to the car and the boot and doors would not open, I took the keys out of the pouch, got in the car, put the keys back in the pouch and the car would not start, ( a message saying " Keys not detected ). I brought 2 of this , one for my spare set of keys and one for my general use keys. At less then £3 each I think it was a very good buy. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-Keyless-Key-Entry-Fob-Guard-Signal-Blocker-Faraday-Bag-Version-for-Phone/232535957664?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

  25. LC500 and Multistorey Car Parks

    It's benn fine for the past 3 weeks, I just think it was a slightly drained battery due to the car being shunted around and not really going anywhere, so fingers crossed the problem had solved itself.
