  1. @Peter P18 Hi Pete, Sorry to hear you are thinking of selling given all the research, money & effort you have put in to modifying the car. Having had the pleasure of experiencing how well it went before it had the supercharger it will certainly be a unique & special car for someone. Good luck with the sale, but part of me hopes you hang on to it. 😉
  2. Depends when it was registered - most likely its the 2010 model If it has the blue F panel at the bottom of the steering wheel with two equal sized speedo/rev counter. That model year was revised with a mechanical LSD.
  3. Totally agree, it’s a big part of the character of all those cars and a major part of their attraction. The daft part about the QS exhaust is that Lexus themselves commissioned it to help sell the RCF at the Goodwood FoS moving motor show 🙄 so they are clearly aware of the issue - at least in the UK anyway!
  4. I tend to use it sitting in traffic, which in Essex seems to be most of the time🙄 or when cruising on the motorway etc. The thing I really noticed after fitting the QS was how much I had missed the sound of the engine below 3.5k revs for gear changes. Because I do very few miles in my RCF, or the ISF before it, I hadn’t realised noticed how much this was affecting my enjoyment of these cars. For me it’s really my only criticism of the F cars, which is something Lexus really ought to address for markets such as Europe.
  5. I have also never found throttle response to be slow generally. I did initially find the eco drive mode a bit sluggish when pulling away,, but haven’t noticed it since. It may be that I have just adjusted to it, but I also wonder if this may have something to do with the car reacting /learning your driving style?
  6. I don’t have the TVD & my exhaust is flattened in the same way. The car felt more responsive immediately the exhaust was changed & others have said the same. I presume the standard exhaust is slightly more restrictive than the QS. Couldn’t agree more on the sound front. I never got round to changing the exhaust on my ISF, so was determined not to make the same mistake with the RCF.. Got it changed as soon as I got confirmation that it didn’t invalidate the warranty from TWG (who run the Lexus warranties) & also had some help from a certain Mr @Big Rat 👍🏻
  7. They do sound good - hardly ever listen to the ML sound system now😉
  8. Sounds good Matt & it has certainly been a while mate. Happy to oblige re the RCF, as long as I’m not responsible for giving you itchy feet away from that cracking ISF of yours 😉😆
  9. H Matt, Hope all is well with you. Mercedes Benz World at Brooklands is one possibility if it was a southern meet. Duxford aerodrome is another I know some of the guys have been to recently - I’m sure they will have views on its suitability. Be good to catch up 👍🏻
  10. Hi Paul, Good to see you back on the forum mate 👍🏻
  11. Nice - I do like the red leather👍🏻
  12. Congratulations & good choice👍🏻
  13. I think the darker colour is a better contrast with the white paint personally - nice colour 👍🏻
  14. When I had some issues with V8 Audi S4 a while back the master tech commented on the cleaness of the engine by saying it was obvious it hadn’t been run on supermarket fuel, so I suspect there must be something to this - I use Shell VPower.
