Hey everyone my name is Yan! I bought an rc 350 f sport white. It's the awd model. I have to say I don't care what all this reviewers say about the rc. I love it. this car is amazing in the snow and even though I have it for a month now. I can't wait to get back in it everytime. It's quite, but when want to go fast it has enough power for me. I mean let's face it. How many people really go over 75mph without getting pull over or to a track. If you want a truck toy buy the rc f or the m4. I'm not a bmw guy. They break to **** much. So far I love my rc. I haven't had a single problem. I mean it's a lexus. I'm looking forward to know you guys. And start making my rc look a lil better even though it already looks perfect. I know some people don't like the looks of the rc but let me tell you this car looks amazing in person. Everything time I'm driving it everyone ask me about it and I always find people looking at it when it's park. It's defferent and unique. I'm
new to Lexus and I'm already in love with the brand.

Welcome to the forum. Glad to have you hear and you sound like a cool guy who is enthusiastic about Lexus. Would be great if you let us know where you are from (Toronto here) and also posted up a picture of your Lexus.

All the best!

Welcome!

Glad to hear you're not one of those folks that let reviewers think for you, instead buying it because you like it, for reasons that matter to you is the best way to go about a buying a new toy :D

Have you seen the new TOM's kit?

Awesome. May is not too far away.

Are you planning to jump right into doing modifications if you have any in mind already or going to wait it out a bit before you go through with that process?

Hey guys I'm sorry it took so long to answer you guys back. I am from NY. Thank you for welcoming me to the group. I'm already thinking about painting the calipers and some other staff but not in a rush. I mean the car looks amazing. There is not much we can do to it. And I have no idea how to post pics. So can you please let me know how to?

Have you thought about what color you want to paint it?

Seen covers you can get that go right over your OEM calipers, not sure if those would be of any interest to you.

I did test drive the rear wheel drive. And actually that's the one I wanted but I live in ny. And It is my only car so I need the AWD. The rear steering was really nice and I think it feels a bit faster to. But for the way I drive it. It's fine for me. My awd handles really good and the engine sound really nice. I have no regrets. Like I said I needed the awd and I don't really track the car. The awd works really good in the snow when you set it to snow mode. If I live down south then I think the rear is the best bet.

Good reasons for having AWD. Many folks won't be tracking their RC's and so you should expect most to be like yourself, using it for the reasons and conditions where AWD helps.

How have you found it to be in the snow compared to other (non-awd) vehicles you've had?

I used to have subarus which are really good in the snow. My last one was a wrx 2014. That was my little toy. And I have to say the lexus feels a lot better. It might be because the ride quality is Better in the rc but I think I have more control and the car feels like it's clue to the road. So yeah I drove bmw and a lot other cars and this one is by far the best one I have driven before. And I drove the rc in 4" and 8" of snow and it handle great. Sorry I haven't posted pictures yet, I'm waiting for the weather to get nice to take good pictures.

Ride quality is definitely it, Subaru's have been known to be not all that great in that area which just about any Lexus excels at. The plus side to it, that area of Subaru's sort of make them more subaru-like, people love that rawness of them.
