Any tips on getting a used LC 500?
My fiancée and I are shopping for a sporty-ish coupe in the $60k range. We’re looking for something that feels special to drive but can also be used on longer trips through the national parks and such. Not a track day toy nor a family truckster, if that makes sense.
We tried the BMW M440i and liked it OK, and we’re testing the Merc C43 (and C63) soon. A friend recommended I look into the LC, and the idea is growing on me, as I can find some decent used examples in the $60k range. I figure a Lexus with 20,000mi on the clock is less likely to have problems than a brand new AMG.
I was wondering if y’all had any advice for prospective owners like us - things you perhaps wish you knew in advance, or good places to find quality LC500s at a good price. I’m especially interested in your perspective if you’ve owned a sporty Merc or BMW and have thoughts about how these cars all compare. We’re located in WA state, if that makes any difference, and we’re not in a hurry.
Thanks in advance for any advice you have.
