RC 350 F Sport coming soon..

Hi, everyone. I just recently test drove the RC 350 F Sport, Ultrasonic Blue Mica a few days ago @Longo Lexus in El Monte, CA and it was like love at first site. I am a proud owner of a Toyota Tacoma TRD for 13+ years and it's finally time to move up to the ranks of Luxury Sport. In negotiations with the salesman and within a few weeks, my new Baby will be mine. It has the Mark Levinson upgraded sound system, fog lamps, land navigation, black interior, parking assist and a few other goodies. I will post pictures once my deal is finalized. Thanks everyone for your time, help, advice, and support on this Beautiful Kuruma. Hehe..

Sincerely,
Akiho-Yoshizawa

Welcome to the forum, glad to have yet another RC350 F Sport owner here

Were there any other coupes you were looking into before finally deciding on the RC? 4 series maybe?

Hi, Soarer.

Yes, I really want and love the BMW M3 Sedan 2015 but $80000 for something in the long run is NOT worthy financial wise to upkeep and maintain. No offense, but the M3 is a very, very beautiful car and powerful but German parts are way too expensive for repairs. No offense but I am not one of those rich, spoiled kids from Asia with unlimited funds from Daddy or Mommy. Yes, I have a few friends like that. Since I have a Toyota for 13+ years and hear nothing but Excellent, Awesome, and High Resale value of Lexus's, you can't go wrong. It's funny that I see lots of M3's in the San Gabriel Valley 626 area but I have NOT seen one RC350 besides in the dealerships. Hmmmm?!? I have been looking in the market and nothing really is Spectacular than this Beautiful RC350 F Sport, in my opinion, of course. I just wished it had a slightly more powerful V6 engine than the regular RC350.

Great choice! As horrible as they are in that department, knowing the experience they provide makes going that direction all too tempting Have you at least had the opportunity to test drive one? Even the 335i is really nice, not as much to worry about and still great to play around with, plus the 335i xDrive model isn't all that far off in price from the RC350.

Welcome to the boards Akiho!

Best part about Lexus are Toyota labor rates (kidding, only kind of)

Hi, Soarer. Yes, I did test drive my friends 3 Series Sedan which was turbocharged and it was very smooth, powerful and responsive. Like I mentioned before, the upkeep after warranty is what worries me in the long run. Ah.. Germans make a very beautiful beast but their parts and service prices are ridiculous. Unless, I had a really high paying salary, my #1 choice is the 2015 M3 Sedan but I am just a regular guy with numerous hobbies and I don't believe in working soley for a vehicle alone. Hehe.. By purchasing an RC 350 F Sport, I can still live comfortably and go out and have fun. You know what I mean? ;-) Do you or have you purchased or leased your RC?
