For the US market, that price is definitely way too high - but it looks like you live in Canada so I really can't accurately comment on what it should be selling for.

Keep in mind that the F-Sport...

Not quite - you've only lost the market of those who want to buy a pre-LCI RX with the exact pre-LCI RX looks. Besides 90% of the market won't even notice a difference. Keep in mind that the majority...

That's kind of a brash comment to make. The guy just wanted to improve the looks of his car - I don't think he was concerned about his car trying to pass itself off as an LCI RX.

I think that...

I doubt many of us would switch to the NX - Toyota's target market for the NX is clearly aimed at a more sporty crowd with less need for space. However, it fills in the gap they've been missing for...

$38 for an "RX 350" badge?!?! There has to be somewhere online that sells genuine ones for less than that.

You might just consider removing the "R 350" and go for a clean look. I tried to convince my wife to let me do that on her car, but she likes the look with all the badges on. We're taking delivery of...

My bad - for some reason I thought one of those high 30k numbers was the mileage. Figure mid-30's is probably a bit more reasonable then - say $36k ish.

Combine this with rear seats the fold down completely flat along with some more tech upgrades in the front and you'd have a great next gen RX.
