Red face Well I am out. Thanks everyone! Long live Z

I loved my 370Z and wanted to thank everyone here. I did not post much but I did a lot of lurking and reading. Learned a lot and who knows I may come back.

The Z was pretty much bulletproof and I did enjoy her but the wife wanted to be able to bring a few more bags and crap with her when we rolled out in my car. I am going to miss my Black Cherry girl. Almost had a tear when I drove away in my new RC F. The "new" car is 2015 14k miles Ultrasonic blue carbon package with torque vectoring differential. It feels wild in the corners with the TVD especially in slalom mode. (pics attached)

I know... I know... . I know. It is not M4 fast and it has less torque than a Mustang GT, and no manual gear box but something about driving it spoke to me. As an added bonus It has Lexus quality and Toyota reliability.

If you want to see what it is like driving it check out this video at 19:19. It was his first time driving it.

For those of you that are like, "dude you could have TT'd your Z and blow that stupid Lexus away!" Well yes but... I give you the supercharged version of the RCF that starts at 666 HP. You can buy the kit now but they are still working on making it better.

Sick car man. The amount of money I dumped into my car I should have just gotten the Lexus RC. Not balling enough for the RCF

Ha! No... you have to kind of fall back in to it but if you are not over 5'8" it is not bad. You would not want to do a bunch of hours back there but if you are dipping out with friends for lunch (short trip) it works!

Congratulations Toyota/Lexus have excellent resale value as well as being very dependable as long as you do all your general maintenance that is. I would have kept the Z but to each their own.

From a fellow black cherry owner, congrats on the new car, good luck with it.

I drove a 2017 IS and was pleasantly surprised, Im sure its way different than your car, but was my first "newer" lexus drive and enjoyed it. Lexus has vastly improved of late in my opinion, so, again, good luck with it.
