Seeing how there have been many spottings of these showing up at dealers and even on the road you might want to contact your local dealers to see if they have any on their lot to see it for yourself in person.

I think Lexus has some video's on it as well, the next best thing to seeing it in person.

I really like them. I feel that they are very crisp and clear, providing excellent range of light. In my opinion the high beams can be seem from space. No visibility issues at all.

One thing to note - Lexus has an "auto" high beam option. You put on the high beams and the car will auto dim them when it senses oncoming traffic or street lights. I loved that option on my RX and was bummed to find out I can't get it on my RC. I talked with Jeff, my sales guy, and it turns out Lexus is fazing that option out. Apparently it was causing issues with using high beams during full moons because it sensed the brightness and therefore wouldn't allow the high beams to be used.

The auto high beam option is available on the RC F-Sport here in Australia (and the 3-LED headlights are standard). However, we miss out on the Homelink garage door opener on the rear-view mirror, which is a real shame. We also do not have the AWD option. We may be getting the RC300h, which is the hybrid version available in Japan. At the moment, we have three grades of RC350: Luxury (entry level); F-Sport; and Sports Luxury. They are selling like hot cakes in this country. Lexus have a huge hit on their hands.

That's weird. I understand they do specific things for specific markets to make it better suit the needs of people in that market, but not including things like Homelink garage door opener on the rear-view mirror, which to me should be available world-wide, make me wonder what they're thinking.

Having come from a car with HID headlights, and driving my wife's 2004 ES330 with HID the LED headlights in the RC350 are great. They are much brighter, crisper, and with a more defined cutoff.

yeah they sure are
even years from now they should prove to be amazing as with projectors after some time they need to have their lense cleaned for perk performance and cut off.
