Guess you haven't sorted through the site sponsors yet. Figs is one of the good guys

And the brake "issue" was common with some drivers of all the F cars (ISF, RCF, GSF) the "fix" if you want to call it that, was to put on less aggressive, lower dusting, and much less noisy pad. My solution on my ISF was more aggressive aftermarket (Ferodo & Project Mu) pads.

Most folks who go with the Less aggressive pad are unhappy with the choice, though some are happy.

Here's a recent thread from the GSF Forum:

BTW, the dealer gave the OP bad information IMO.

UPDATE: Lexus had my car for a week and determined that the squeaking while annoying is safe. I have since contacted a lawyer and called 180025lexus.

^^^^So, you would rather pay legal fees than solve the "issue" yourself? There are a myriad of forum sponsors that specialize in brake components. My favorite is http://speedfreaksusa.com.
If you want lower performance pads that are quiet I'm sure they could give you good advice.

But, for me, I'm far more interested in performance than noise or dust. The LC500 is a performance vehicle after all, and performance vehicles are not luxury vehicles and they do come with some compromises.

The fact that Lexus would send someone out to check driving patterns in lieu of addressing what seems to be a fairly obvious problem could even be more comical than offensive. This should not be happening no matter how you drive the car if a proper system was on the car. I change cars super frequently, drive a lot of different cars on the tracks and have never seen such issues. Should not happen except on lower end cars using cheap or underspeced systems.
Right! Iím glad Iím not the only one who sees something wrong with their approach. Definitely not an incognito speed racer lol. Maybe a wanna be.
I took it in again to a different dealership in San Diego and they wouldnít even touch the car. They simply said ďwe would do the same thing that El Cajon did so youíre wasting your time. This just happens with higher end cars. It even happened to Mercedes.Ē Thatís verbatim.
Quite frankly, itís insulting. I have spoken with an attorney but he told me Ca Lemon Law doesnít come into play unless the problem poses a safety hazard. Frustrating to say the very least.

I took delivery just over one month ago. From the very beginning I've had brake issues. The best way I can describe it is that it sounds like an old bus or train trying to come to a stop. It is VERY loud, irritating and embarrassing! My dealership took the car in for a few days, dismantled the brakes, put grease all over them and then put it all back together again. The sound was actually worse after I picked up the car. At this point I don't even want to drive the car. It is a safety issue and I don't want to put my life at risk. Lexus should be ashamed to put out such an awful vehicle. I want nothing to do with this LC 500. If I had known that I would experience all of these issues then I never would have wasted all this money. The dealership and Lexus Canada just dismiss me and say that the metal on metal screeching is completely normal and that there is nothing they can do. They just don't want to admit that there is serious problem. They have no clue how to fix the issue so they close their eyes and pretend everything is ok. The callipers make so much metallic clicking noises as well. It is a completely flawed system. The car is garbage and should be bought back by the dealership/Lexus corporate. I do not drive hard at all. I drive in ECO MODE and do not stomp on the brakes. THIS IS THE WORST CAR EVER! If you are reading this and are considering getting an LC 500 then STOP! DO NOT DO IT! You will be very unhappy!

^^^^Beside the noise, what safety and life threatening issues are you experiencing? BTW, have any of you tried to bed in the brakes? Has the dealer even suggested it?
