  1. Just an FYI on the window chrome delete, there is an Lexus OEM replacement part for the window trim that comes in gloss black (from when they did the black edition RC) that you can order from the dealer. I forgot how much it costs but i recall it being reasonably priced. Might be a good option for those interested.
  2. Definitely try out dark gunmetal. The GSF wheels look fantastic in dark gunmetal grey. Supposedly the closest colour is Shadow Chrome.
  3. That looks great. Definitely suits the cars exterior.
  4. It's going to be a head turner. Great choice 👍 and congratulations. The wait is always long isn't it 😂
  5. Great write up. Congratulations on the C63s AMG. Thanks for the comparison. At least you got loaned exceptional machines when the C63s was in the garage 😁. I agree on most of your points. It is funny that the F performance line of the Lexus brand don't get recognized by the masses. In fact, I've even experienced this myself at a dealer when i asked to get brand new floor mats for my GS-F, he got me a GS floor mat (the very same ones i have on my car) even after i specifically told him i wanted to make sure the car had the proper GS-F mats. His explanation was that those were the only floor mats made for the GS 🤦‍♂️ I have since given up and decided to rather spend the money elsewhere 😂. Which is why i have invested in a valved exhaust system to open up the glorious NA V8 sound at low revs and have the ability to turn it off with a remote when the situation needs me to be more "discrete". The F has plenty of torque, it's just that it's higher up the rev range. To have fun in an F in low speed you only need to drive it in manual (and you'll probably only need 1st/2nd gear or maybe occasionally 3rd) and keep it at higher RPM. Can't deny the wonders of turbo charged engines though, must be hilarious having access to torque so easily 😁 Enjoy your AMG ownership, hope the C63s has had enough of garage visits (except of course for the usual service) and even if it does then hopefully the loaners will continue to be epic cars at least 👍 😃
  6. It was great going down to Beaulieu with other Lexus F members on here. Nice to finally meet other members and good to see David again. There were 2 RCFs, 3 ISFs and believe it or not 4 GSFs on site 😁 Cezar and Kieran definitely lead the pack with their insane GTHaus bazookas. Davids red RCF got quite abit of attention while it was there with the aftermarket wheels on they look stunning and the super clean paint made the state of mine a shame 😂
  7. The V8 does sound pretty epic even if it is a little restricted by the exhaust. Here is where you can find the setting to turn off the map screen auto return.
  8. Congratulations on the GSF. Yes there is, I switched off the automatic return to map by going through the settings. I forgot which exact menu setting to go through but it is possible. Will check tomorrow if you still can't find it. Regarding parking sensors, i believe there is only 2 in the front.
  9. I believe you can reset the TPMS yourself within the settings. How to initialize the tire pressure warning system Park the vehicle in a safe place and turn the engine switch off. Initialization cannot be performed while the vehicle is moving. Adjust the tire inflation pressure to the specified cold tire inflation pressure level. (→P. 623) Make sure to adjust the tire pressure to the specified cold tire inflation pressure level. The tire pressure warning system will operate based on this pressure level. Turn the engine switch to IGNITION ON mode. Press or on the meter control switch and select . Press or on the meter control switch and select “Vehicle Settings”. Then press . Press or on the meter control switch and select “TPMS”. Then press and hold until a message is displayed. The message will be displayed on the multi-information display and the tire pressure warning light will blink slowly 3 times. When the message disappears, initialization is complete. Got those from the manual. Hope it helps and sorts out your TPMS issue.
  10. Our stock front wheels are 9 inch with 255 on. 265 on the 9.5 would eliminate that stretched look.
  11. The diffuser looks good. The sun is out, the car is clean, looks great!
  12. The only "safe" way of going about it i'm afraid is to make sure the lowering springs that you decide to go with has rates that is within the specifications of the AVS shocks. Swift springs are highly reputable and can provide you with custom spring rates for your needs i believe. As always, these things do come with "proceed with caution". Oh and the Artisan Spirits wheel arch extension is quite pricey. Maybe the cost of a JDM piece might be easier to swallow. Although they don't cover as much of the wheel arch as the Artisan Spirits. They are body colour painted and are $180 + shipping costs for a pair.
  13. They look fantastic @B1RMA David. I think the red paint and bronze wheel matches really well and spot on with going with concave wheels 👍 Hope to see it in person soon.
