Saying Goodbye is hard to do!!!!!!!!

Hi Everyone,

After 4.5 years I decided to trade in my 2011 Camaro for a 2015 Lexus RC F. I've had a blast getting advice and help from you all and giving help to those that have asked. I received a really good trade-in value for my Camaro.

I could not have met a nicer bunch of people, and hopefully you will not mind me lurking around to see what's happening from time to time.

I also took off a bunch of mods that I had installed, and you can see them listed in the appropriate subforums for sale. (Electronics, Tuning, Engine, and Manuals)

Have a Merry Christmas and very Happy and safe New Year.

Peter

Thanks. I'll be around as I wrote the MyLink install instructions for GEN5DIY, and I'll help any way I can.

If you need any cool mods check out the subforums I mentioned.

Love Lexus, was even looking at an IS-F, but found that the mod market just isn't there. After bolt ons, there's nothing left.

Sadly turned me off. My wife has a 2015 IS350 Fsport AWD and it's great

Good luck!

We are going to miss you too.

Thanks for all of your and Maureen's help.

Oh hell yes I remember Bondurant, and I have the video to keep reminding me of the fun at CFII and meeting you.

Hell I would have gotten the new C7, but I'm too tall and with only 1/2" before my knee hit the dash that was too close for me. The new Lexus has 46" of leg room.

All the best to you and yours for Christmas also.

Peter

Looking at the specs its like the Japanese Camaro Lol, I see they took a letter from GM on making cars fat and heavy lol. Nice upgrade from the Camaro though!
