Hey everyone,
Stumbled across this fun forum about what might be my next post divorce fun car!
Currently in a 15 Sti limited, and because of the job working weekends I don't get out to the track like I thought I would when I bought it.
I am looking for a head turning sporty car with some actual creature comforts, and keep finding myself back at the RC350 Fsport.

I have read a lot of mixed reviews from both the sporty aspect, and the comfort aspects, but any review not aimed at one or the other say it is a serviceable fun car. I will know more this week I suppose.

Finding the lease deals people sharing very helpful, will be digging a little deeper for sure.

Happy to be here~

Also being from CO I know you have to have AWD so that limits a lot of choices for sporty & luxury. AWD was a must for me (I live up in the mountains) but I also wanted comfort which a lot of sporty cars don't have. I get a lot of compliments and questions about this car wherever I go.

Surprised you made that move from an STi to this RC350 F-Sport, seems like quite the departure, was thinking an RC-F would be more in line with someone coming from an STi.

Do you think you'll miss the sort of performance the STi offers which the RC350 can't?

That really is a great 350 review DudeAbides. I appreciate that.
As for moving from the Sti to the 350, I will say I am going to miss teh M/T and some of the performance, but in the last 12 months, I attended a single autocross event, and zero track events. From a daily driving aspect, I am going to enjoy the comfort, and style of the Lexus, as well as the fun zip I can get from it.
I live in Colorado and RWD is not a sacrifice I am willing to make unless it is a dedicated second fun car, and the extra $20K+ doesn't fit the budget right now, but yes the RC-F would be awesome to transition into.
I worked out a VERY awesome deal on my 350 F-sport AWD, and between insurance changes etc, its about a $52 payment change lease to lease, should be arriving from the port next 2-3 weeks.
Thanks for all the feedback and info

I am getting a 2016 Mica Blue 350F-sport AWD, Cold weather pkg, dynamic radar cruise, parking assist, LED foglamps, Roof and Nav.
Pics to follow upon arrival
MSRP: $55860
Sale price $50,880 - 1000 military $49,880 actual price

I think somewhere around $56,7XX is fully loaded every option? so not missing much if anything, the spoiler and maybe the illuminated door sills?
