Hey guys i'm new to the forum and just purchased my RC 350 F-Sport. I was able to get a sweet deal when i turned in my GS350 3 months early on the lease. Here are some pics of Angie.

Obsedian Black with Rioja RED interior. I opted for the dealers carbon fiber wrap which includes the front bottom lip, side mirrors, roof, and lip spoiler.:eek:

Congratulations! Your new girl is a stunner. I bet she turns heads wherever she goes. The carbon fibre touches are nice, and the red interior was a great choice. The only thing I don't like about the North American versions are the headlights. Here in Australia we get the tri-LEDs by default.

@supratt thanks she definitely gets a lot of looks. Wow so you guys get the tri LEDs on all the rcs??? If so that's a major plus and I'd have to admit that's something I'd be jealous over? looking to lower the car sometime next week on some RSR springs and possibly begin my search for a nice exhaust that commands attention

You have one of my favorite color combinations, that black exterior with the red interior is a killer combo.

yes i agree 100% i really wanted the orange or blue but the interior colors were light colors and that was a no go for me. Black gets easy dirty but i hand wash her weekly so she stays clean

Hi, mfresh21. Your "Angie" RC 350 is Beautiful and Awesome in black. I was thinking about that color too but black is darn hard to upkeep and maintain. I am getting the Ultrasonic Blue Mica with black interior within the next few weeks and my deal is in negotiations. Hehe.. Please enjoy your new ride.. ;-)

Looks great. The red interior is such a good choice. Would be cool if you could post a few more pictures of the interior so we can take a look.

Thanks i sure will iv'e already put 400 miles on her in a week lol. Orange and blue were my first two choices however they didn't have the interior colors that i wanted to match with so i had to go with my third option of black.I make it a sunday ritual to go out and hand wash my car. i make it my stress free time :D

I'll have some pics up of the interior today. Yesterday I was able to change out the rest of the interior bulbs that didn't come led. Iv'e never understood why they would make the car interior lighting led yet leave a few lights inside and out non led. For ex; the dome lights are led but the foot pedal lighting (both driver and passenger) are yellow. as well as the lights on both doors. The one that honestly looks the nicest is the reverse light in LED it gives the car a sweet touch and also makes the reverse camera look a lot more clearer.

Hi, mfresh21.

Oh my goodness.. Angie's red interior is f'..ing Extravagant and Eye Catching. Sorry, for cursing but I meant it it a good way. Hehe.. Longo Lexus showed me the White and Silver Exterior With Red interior but your Black exterior stands out much more.

Hi, mfresh21.

Hehe.. I am sure I will put some high milage too and 400 miles is not too bad. Driving to and from work at 5 days is 200 miles for me but at least, it's going to be very, very enjoyable and smooth. Just curious, what is the highest speed you put Angie in? On test drive, I did hit 70 MPH, and I barely touched the gas pedal. I will have to control my speed because I do drive my Tacoma at 75-90 MPH on the 110 Freeway @330am after work. Yes, I will indeed need to control my Adrenaline Speed Demon within me. Uh... ;-(

thanks for the comments. it will be a smooth ride indeed. I've only taken her up to 90mph and that was a night that I felt like opening her up considering the fact that I am still breaking her in. ill tell you this. she has plenty of room to open up for more. when I cruise her on the freeway @ 80 mph she's steady at 2,000 RPM and the scary thing is you don't feel it. Don't expect to do high mpg on your car though ive noticed on eco im only getting about 14mpg which is terrible. im not sure if it's because shes still breaking in or if its because I like switching her over to sport S + and giving her some gas to hear her scream.>:D

Now that is something I have noticed a lot of reviews miss out on, what it's like as a streetable vehicle which through my experience... is great, something you can vouch for as well.

Have you owned any vehicles in the past that were anything even slightly like the RC?

Hi, Mfresh21. Wow.. Hitting 90mph, must had been nerve racking and fun as, well. Only when I am alone is when I hit higher speeds. I don't race or hot rod, I just love driving fast, even in my Tacoma Truck. Just please be careful from law enforcement and I don't think it would help you on insurance purposes either. I am sure it is way too easy to just barely tap on the gas pedal and you are already at 80+mph. uh... I am still so afraid to get behind the wheel and let her rip, like you mentioned. Hehe.. just be careful and enjoy, Angie at reasonable speeds. I am sure when other cars look at her, they get so jealous just by seeing her zoom by. Hehe.. ;-)

Hi, Soarer. Yes, when I test drove the RC350 F Sport, it was very comfortable, quiet, smooth, and quite easy to manage. It was a Rear Wheel Drive and I did get to drive it about 7-10 miles on the city and freeway. Without even trying, I hit 70mph by barely hitting on the gas pedal. The brakes were normal and since I own a Toyota Tacoma truck for the past 13+ past years, it seemed somewhat the same on brakes. Yes, I had two previous sports cars before. A 1996 Acura, Integra, 4 door and a 1994 Mazda MX3 coupe, all V4, engines with no mods, all stock. This will be my 1st REAL Sports Coupe with this much HP. I never really was into racing or power, I loved those cars because of the looks and body style. I still love the 2015, BMW, M3, Sedan but mainly for the body. Of course, you can't go wrong with the V6, twin turbo at 400+HP, I believe. Hehe.. How about you?
