I am anxiously waiting for mine too.
bought it on 7th march and was told before signing the paperwork that the delivery can't be done till April aprox because of the recall. Even though the tires are already upgraded and sales person asked lexus for exception but they got refused. So few more days thn i will be able to post some pictures here.
And btw i purchased a 2018 F sports with vossen wheels and full artisan spirit body kit.

Im hoping i can get it soon, the March Programs are ending...im not sure how this effects anything...if we dont finalize the paperwork, what happens, i cannot seem to get a clear picture...but my dealer gave me a loaner and took my old lease back and just holding it so i dont put any more miles on it cause i was right at the limit mark..


I called corp office and all they say is to talk to dealer...they all seem not to know much after all

I think they would start releasing cars in first week of April. I signed all the paperwork for the lease and traded my car in. They gave me a loaner to drive. Than i get a call from dealer saying that they can't payoff my car technically because i have not taken delivery of the car. And my lease is on hold till delivery is ready. Hopefully they don't throw crap about the additional savings not available in April that we got in march

Default Run Flat Tires when cold

I have a 2018 LS500 with the Michelin run flat tires. I've noticed when it's cold outside and I start driving the car, I can feel vibrations through my gas pedal foot and leg especially between 65-70 MPH until several miles are driven, then it rides smoothly. But it seems like the tires have to warm up and "reshape" before they give a smooth ride. We had one unseasonably warm day up here in the New England about a couple of weeks ago and I noticed the tires did not need this warm up period before they gave a smooth ride - it was fine from the beginning of the ride.

I know this may sound really crazy, but I had Lexus agree to change the two front tires a couple of days after I purchased the car (200 miles on it) and the problem persisted. I'm now at 3,000 miles so I've given this some time. My car isn't on the recall list but I am tempted to ask for a replacement set of regular tires. Has anyone experienced this?

I picked up my car today. They said Lexus made an exception since my car had upgraded wheels and non run flats.
Any news on yours?

Yes they sold the car with all the body kit and wheels.
Most of the lexus dealers are now having their several cars upgraded with aftermarket stuff.

I know vossen is working with several dealers in nation and they charge extra from MSRP for these upgrades.

And customer will get warranty on these products from lexus dealership.

Park place lexus where i purchased mine have a lx570 and lc500 upgraded with vossen forged set of wheels available for sale.

You might not see them listed on website but are on dealer floor available for anyone wanting to purchase with all the upgrades
