Hows it going everyone, Hope you're all having a good monday so far :D. Im brand new to this forum and figured it would only be right to properly introduce myself. My name is Noel and I currently live in Orlando, FL. I dont as of yet own a Lexus or have ever owned one but god willing will be able to own a RC350 F-sport in the upcoming future. I have owned two Toyotas (95 Camry, 99 Corolla) one BMW (2004 E46) and currently own a Nissan (2011 370z). I like many of you saw the RC350 F-sport and instantly fell in love with the looks and the fact that it was a two door coupe with style and elegance. Before buying my Z about two years ago I was eyeing the IS 350 as I have always liked the newer look of the IS line up especially the F-Sport but didnt like having four doors. Everything about the RC draws me to it like a moth to a flame. The only thing I could probably say IMO is a downside is the lack of HP as Im currently sitting a bit above 300WHP with bolt ons from the VQ37 motor in the Z. I feel I've slowly outgrown the want for so much horsepower and speed and prefer something with great looks and a slight bit of grunt when needed. Anyways I wont bore you guys to death just wanted to say Hey!!! to all of you and I look forward to seeing this community grow in the coming months. I attached a few pics of my little Z as well.

Nice choices of vehicles, from your ideal commuter toyotas to the fun E46 and Z.
I think one thing you'll miss about the Z, is the sound those VQ's have, VQ engines just have this really nice tone to them.

Have you at least had the chance to test drive an RC as yet?

Your are definitely going to notice the power difference. But this can be very deceptive... as you will eventually notice its not so much of a power difference but mostly sound.

The VQ engine does make a great sound!!! I come from a VQ35 with some bolt on mods too. As a matter of fact I still have it.

Keep in mind too that VQ has been around and there are a lot of parts and mods for it. This car is NEW and there is almost nothing out there for it... But there will be. I am currently waiting on my Intake and I will get an exhaust as soon as there is one available.. HKS I would prefer..

That is a very nice Lady Z!!!
What did u do on your Z? Intake, exhaust, HFC and Tune?
