So I see the tires different. What else have you done as far as cosmetics? (Not that the tires are entirely cosmetic.)

350 RWHP? Hard to believe impossible to add more than 100rwhp over stock without forced induction. Nice try.

An extra 50hp might be possible from an aggressive tune, exhaust and CAI but only at the flywheel, not rear wheels...

that aggressive tune sounds like it will lead to early engine problems but I agree with your statement that it must be @ the flywheel and not @ the rear wheels

Would love to see a video showing off the mods that you made. Let's see this thing in action.

How much did all this cost

Not sure I understand putting that kind of money out for brembo brakes.
Obviously the RCF is more money and probably worth it if you are looking for more horsepower and still want all of the amenities Lexus has to offer. I opted to get the RC 350 F sport all-wheel-drive I live in Pennsylvania sometimes too much snow I probably would do everything I could to get the RCF for the best possible price if it was not for the snow. Since I drive my car all year around the all-wheel-drive just made sense. Is 50 more horsepower really worth it ?
In any case I'm sure your car is fantastic I love my RC one of the nicest cars I've had in a long time.
