Default Your Atomic Silver LC

TimboIS, I noticed that you have an LC in Atomic Silver. How do you like the color? Do you find it's appealing? Did you specifically order your LC in that color? Reason I'm asking, is because I'm considering an LC that has that exterior color (not my primary choice, but it's a good price), and TBH, I'm not convinced on it - it's like a brownish silver? Your feedback would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

I specificaly ordered it that color. Go with what YOU want, not to save a few $, you’ll regret it.

I purchased a new LC 500 a few weeks ago for spring delivery. The sales contract had a spot for remarks and typed in there was " high performance brakes will make a loud squeal which is normal".
If their sales contract says that it may be because they have had issues. I also have a 911 which has 45,000 miles on it with no squeals

You should have crossed that section out before signing.

I would have walked if they tried to weasel that crap into a sales contract. I have a 911 Turbo S and have never heard of such a thing. My LC is prettier than my 911, but slower (obviously) yet still doesn't have squealing breaks. If others exhibit that trait, folks need to lawyer up. Don't take the b.s.

I don't own a high performance car, but the only time I've heard of noisy brakes being "normal" is with carbon disks. and yes the fix supposedly is to bed them with a few high speed stops. It's just a bit odd that Lexus is using this as an excuse on their steel disk brakes.

I seriously doubt this is an official “Lexus Corp” proviso, rather a dealer issue. Boarderline as bad as new Tesla warranty that excludes “squeaks and rattles”.
