Glad to have you here on the forum. Would be awesome to see some pics of your new purchase. How are you liking your RC350 so far?

Cheers!

Guys-
I have no pics yet- have had the car some 10 days now- rainy days constantly, so I took opportunity to do following: total clay bar (including windows), one coat of Meguires pre-wax/polish, then a coat of Zaino Z-2 Show car wax/polish, then finally two coats of Klasse High Gloss/Sealer glaze. I will regularly spray surfaces with Optimum spray-on wax/polish to retain luster I love.

Whew, I am tired and sore- all hand-rubbed as I sold my Porter-Cable to a friend who likes the machinery-driven car care route.

As to stares I am getting on the road- I love them as much as I love the feel and handling of the car. It is indeed a peppy road rocket if provoked...

Welcome!

I bet in LA you're probably seeing a lot of RC's, or at least more than others have been seeing elsewhere in the U.S.

Spotting an RC while in an RC will be a cool experience :D

Now I'm even more excited to see some pictures after you have put all that work into the paint job.

Thanks for letting us know what mods you've made to you RC so far. Keep us updated.

Cheers.

Congrats on the new purchase!!!

Believe it or not, the car is very rare in LA as well. I have only seen 2 of them in the past 3 months. The second one was just yesterday. It was a Red RC-F on Vossen wheels!!! We were next to eachother on the street light and being as friendly as I am i tried to compliment his RC-F and the guy would not acknowledge... He was just a douche... lol We are going to see a lot of those.

With that being said, it makes the driving experience just more amazing. Breaks necks on every corner!!!

At least you got to see an RC-F, some people I know in different locations across the united states are only seeing NX's, the only new Lexus they're seeing.

Good to know someone else got to throw on aftermarket wheels on their RC-F, wonder if he's on here or even on Club Lexus.

Congrats on the new ride, and welcome to the club. Since owning mine from mid-December I have seen only two others. One a Orange RC350 and the other a USB RCF when I went to pick up my wife's Lexus two weeks ago.

When I told the Lexus dealer I just saw a USB RCF on the way to them they said they just sold it to them 20 minutes before. Talk about new.

My coworker told me that he saw a Black RC350 F-Sport, and thought it was me, but figured out it wasn't as it was in a different town. Hope to see a few more, but really like the exclusivity so far.

It's for reasons like that I like to make a slight detour to pass by the dealer, always a good opportunity to spot something at a stage like this.

Back when Infiniti Q50's came out, I didn't see any on the road, passed by the local dealer, at least 15 were sitting on their lot just patiently waiting to go through PDI. My eyes lit up.

I saw the Orange RC350 again today when I was coming home from my trainer. It was a older gent like myself. At least someone other than me is driving their new car. :laugh:

At least they will not be as prolific as the Camaro due to their higher price.

Orange must still be a pretty rare slighting though. Not everyone has the confidence to drive down the street in a bright orange RC 350.

I drove by the Keyes Lexus in Van Nuys, CA today and they had an RC-F Orange in display...

I'm not a big fan of luxury cars on these weird colors... But it definitely looked nice!!!

I used to have a 04 Mustang GT Convertible Bright Yellow!!! **** car cost me m license lol.... got 6 speeding tickets in 3 months... and whenever I got pulled over.. I wasnt really speeding... It was just 3-5MPH over the limit... but **** car was Yellow....
