Hi, soarer. That's good news for Lexus but I I am still waiting for an RC350 or RCF, to zoom by me on any Los Angeles freeway. Hehe.. I am so disappointed that none of them are on the road while I am out and about. Uh.. :-( I finally saw my 1st IS250, at work in White and black interior a few days ago. I also saw an extremely beautiful M3 2015 sedan in white in our parking lot @Space X and it belongs to some VIP. Hopefully, I will be the first one to own an RC350 F Sport. Hehe.. In a few months guys.. ;-)

Since we have over 4500+ employees. I get to see a bunch of new vehicles that were recently purchased or leased. There is even a Special Lease Deal for Space X employees only for the Tesla.

It was a different dude, his name starts with a B. Do you know if there is a cold air intake available for the RC350 yet?

Most likely was Brian Erickson, I do not believe they have anything yet for the RC350, read someone using one for a GS350 and they said it was bolt off bolt on no issues....

I have only seen 2 of ur cars on the street. A very nice RC350 FSport White and an Orange RC-F.

They are not around as much as the IS250-350... Which makes it even better. I am yet to not get a compliment on my car when driving it. It's typically tumbs up when on freeway or guys at red lights saying "I didnt know Lexus had a Sports Car!!!" Lol.

GET YOURS ALREADY!!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

I installed mine. It's a Takeda Intake for the GS350

It's a direct bolt on fit!!! Looks Great.

I installed mine a couple of weeks ago. Here is a pic.

I have the Torque Pro App that I will use to measure 0-30, and 0-60 mph times and post a video. I need to get a cell phone windshield mount first.

I have noticed that before the install if I took off using Sport+, gear selector in M, and the paddle shifters it was quick, and sounded good, but nothing too special.

After the install using Sport+, gear selector in M, and the paddle shifters the car is noticeable stronger, and in fact the Traction Control light will now flicker when I jump on it. It didn't do that before.

The sound is much more noticeable, but in a good way. Under normal driving you don't even hear it, until you mash the peddle.

I'd say it was worth the money, and only took 1 hour or less to take off the old one and install the new one.

I hope RC-F owners are considering the intake from that same brand.

Too bad there doesn't seem to be any before and after video's of that brands GS350 intake on a GS or even an RC.

On an IS-F:
