  1. I have an Invidia catback exhaust (axle-back and mid-pipe), in their boxes with original packing, for sale. The full exhaust is suitable for the RC 350, but only the axle-back is suitable for the RC 200t. The system had been on the car for less than two months (the axle back was purchased first, from Sparesbox), and the mid-pipe was then purchased and imported from Vivid Racing in the USA (and was on the car for less than a month). Exceptionally well made; the cross-over in the mid-pipe produces a terrific exhaust note, but under load was too aggressive for someone my age. Price: $800 for both, or $500 individually.As new condition. Pick-up only or courier at purchaser's expense. Pictures available.

  3. Cold air intake

    My understanding is that F-Sport accessories for the RC 350 are only available through dealerships in the USA (bigger market), and normally do not ship to Australia. It also appears that they have not produced a F-Sport Cold air intake for the 2017 model??? Consequently, what is better? AEM, employing the OEM intake box, or Tanaka? Will the Tanaka void warranty, as I already know the AEM will not. Many thanks.

    Thank you for the advice. I have kept the OEM mids and just the Tanabe axle back. The Invidia system is obviously intended for someone much younger. 40 years ago maybe? But really impressed with the quality of the system, particularly the cross-over on the mids.

    Actually I had Lexus remove the axle back and put the OEM mufflers back on. Drove it for a while and did not like it. Had them remove the mid-pipe and now have Tanabe, which was installed a week ago. Happy with that.

    As of two weeks ago I became a newbie to this forum, having purchased a RC 350 F-Sport three months ago. Previous 12 years have been Alfa Romeo adventures, fortunately without any issues. My last was a 100th anniversary GT, and was sorry to part with it. Great cars. Actually did not have any intention of parting with it (sold it interstate on Carsales the same day it was posted). Saw the ad for the F-Sport upgrade at no additional cost on a Thursday night and went in the next day and bought one. I must admit with some trepidation. But I am not disappointed. Quite the contrary. My only criticism is the exhaust note. After having Italian V6s with their distinctive exhaust notes, I purchased and imported a full Invidia catback system that was installed by the Lexus dealership (with no impact on warranty). But after a couple of weeks determined that it was too aggressive. At low revs it had a terrific growl, but around 3,500 rpm it was ‘aggressive’. So had Lexus remove it and it is now for sale on EBay. Excellent quality but obviously designed with younger persons in mind.
