You know, I really wish Lexus dealerships listed new vehicles on their website properly (like others, such as MB, BMW, and Porsche, do).

I believe you have mentioned the first issue with any production LFA
Any more details on the engine issue?

There was one red LFA spotted here in Albuquerque not to long ago. It looked identical.

Brand new LFA not even yet broken in, delivered with knock issues? Very very perplexing.

Thanks for clarifying. That never sounded right in the first place.

From all of the reports that have come out of the hard miles on the prototypes for 3 years, the engine is pretty much bullet proof and never misses a beat.

I have a list of every LFA that has been mentioned on this forum.

http://www.toyotareference.com/lexuslfa

Not all are still available for sale, but if you do some clicking to each topic you could probably narrow it down.
