Great to be here! Currently driving BMW M Sport 535iX and hungry for the RC350 F Sport. Have driven Lexus GS350 and RX350. BMW line up is too much same same look. I want a car as singular as possible on the road.

Currently driving a 2011 Ct200h, premium in Starfire Pearl. I have never seen very many of the CT200h on the road for 3 years which is fine by me. My car does have a similar look to many other small hatch backs on the road. The RC350 should have another distinctive look and I would be very willing to make switch. Looking forward to more information here on the upcoming launch this Fall.

welcome to the show Kayman! I hear what you're saying and its not just BMW, Audi is probably the worst offender Merc isn't so bad but they're getting there. The RC is actually based on a shortened GS platform so if you liked that should be no worries ;)

hey chuck, welcome aboard! Yea not for anything but CT200h has always been a bit bland in my books. Did you like being hybridized, will you be considering the RC300h or it makes no diff?

i drove the IS350 f sport and the plain one about 2 months ago and i was not that much into it .
i then read about the new rcf and rc f sport and decided to take a look and drive them.
i visited 3 dealerships and e-mailed another one for info on the new rc and one came baclk last week inviting me to the first showing of the rc .
i went yesterday november 5
,they had received the car the day before and that same day they sold a fully equipped one .a twin to the one i got.
when i got there they had about 8 of them or maybe more . 4 were on the showroom including one fully equipped except missing the heated steering wheel ,but had every option that you can get on the rwd.
i looked, drove a base version for a test drive ,and bought the fully rwd on the floor .
within 2 hours i was heading home on it ( left my car in the parking lot and going back for it today )
i know i overpaid which is something i have NEVER DONE .
but ,instead of paying it in full they offered me a one time up front payment fee of $24,000. lease ,and a buy or residual of $38,000.
the car had a list of $55.0---by the time i buy it i will have $62 into it or i may just sell it or return it depending on how i feel about it .
driving it home i found the rear wheel steering disconcerting but will get used to it specially hitting corners fast....a blast.
also found that i am really driving a computer..and too many distractions ............
the manual weights a ton ..........and it takes hours of reading to get it and by the time you do you forgot it .
well, we will see ..........
my other options were the mb sl, jag f , vette ,911.................BUT ALL OF THEM LACK a spare tire which to me is a must due to the long trips i take and thru the mountains .
this was the primary reason i got the rc.

they tried to sell me about $3,000 worth of options such as maintanance ,coatings, and 5 other stuff i do not need nor did i get them.

as long as the car is hot they will keep trying to get as much as they can ...............will drive it again tomorrow . i have to go back today and bring them a check. yes, they let me take it home with a full metal license plate and i have not paid for it yet .

After a year of waiting I finally got my RC! I verbally ordered this car November 2013 after seeing it in a Lexus magazine as a future vehicle. She arrived on Monday 11-03 and I got to take her home on Wednesday 11-05! She's beautiful and exactly what I expected. Thanks to Jeff Farley at Stevinson Lexus of Frederick in north Denver for his patience over the past year as we both waited for this line to arrive.

Hey all! Happy to be on this forum and see the excitement about the new RC. I picked mine up from Lexus in Birmingham Tuesday (same day they came off the truck).

One thing I will put out there for the new owners- I have had major issues trying to activate the Enform Remote App on my iPhone. I'm still waiting for them to get it synced and Lexus tells me it's a known issue!

It took me a bit to get my Enform to connect also. It seems to be slightly delayed waiting for the papers to go through on the back end. A couple of days after I got my car I got an email to activate my account. Once you get that just call the phone number in the email - it is easier to just deal with a person. They will hook your account up, put all the info in there, ask for security questions etc. Once you do that you need to go to your car and hit the SOS button. They come on and that is how they get the signal specific to your car. Take your smart phone with you because during this call they will send you an email with your activation code. Pop it into the app with your VIN and poof you are good to go. After I got off the SOS call mine was activated and working within 15 minutes.

Good luck and enjoy the drive!!!!

My Infiniti G37 coupe lease was going to be up this April so last November I was out and about hitting dealerships trying to find my next car. I have had a few Lexus' in the past and stopped by to see if they were ever going to offer a two door that wasn't a convertible. Jeff Farley, my Lexus contact, showed me their magazine that had pics of the RC and RCF. I was sold right then and there based on a pic and what information Jeff told me. I verbally "ordered" the first RC available for Stevinson Lexus that day. Needless to say I bugged the crap out of Jeff for a year and was on this forum weekly looking for updates, info, etc. They started a wait list a few months ago and I was the first name. I found out about a month ago that my dealership was getting two RC's that were scheduled to arrive November 3rd and I got first pick of which one I wanted. Jeff called me when the delivery truck showed up!

I trust Jeff and I love Lexus and have not been disappointed with previous ones I've owned so I had no hesitation in signing on the dotted line without even taking a test drive!!
