    Notchy/Slightly rough 2nd -> 3rd shift when warm

    Mine is scrunchy 1 > 2 when cold, and also first time 6 > 5 can crunch a little. Just the once, then it's fine. 1 > 2 though, either I crunch it and ignore it, or I do my best not to. Depends what mood I'm in 😄

    Strange, it's the other way round for me. 3>2 is the worst change and baulks sometimes, all others are fine.
  4. Got my Ohlins fixed too, finally. What did you feel was the difference between these and the Ohlins top mounts ?
  5. Any chance this is still available? Thanks

    225/45/17 tyres?

    Finally ordered 4 PS4 tyres. Next week they'll be mounted. I went for the 225's, as they make the car look a tiny bit better. I don't race the car. A few times a year I make some high speed German Autobahn miles.

    Not OEM currently. Motul now. I also went down the oil change route , when that did not work , I changed the clutch line with a goodridge Braided line reading a forum post and hoping that would help. All placebo effect waned off after a few days and nothing changed. This was 4 years ago and my gearbox is still fine [emoji846] So I've given up and see it is as a characteristic.

  8. Reluctant sale, wanting it to go to someone who will enjoy it and look after it. Rarely used. Kept on driveway and under car cover. Red 63 plate, 25,689 miles. Mileage will go up as I do a long distance drive once a week. Rare full leather interior, not seen many with full leather interior which was an optional extra provided by Toyota at £1600. Exterior TRD spoiler TRD side aero fins (wrapped in carbon effect). Sharkfin antenna Valenti lights (original lights will be provided) Valenti Smoked side indicators (original provided) Black Toyota badges Rear Carbon fibre effect diffuser Tinted back window and rear quarters Interior Aftermarket radio (original provided) Reversing camera Brushed aluminimum reverse selector on gear knob. Carbon fibre wrapped dash hood. Leather Armrest Heated full leather seats; TRD seat belt covers/padding Cusco Accelerator pedal Intec roof mounted 3rd Brake light Mechanical and engine Tomei UEL manifold (original provided), fitted by Fensport and mapped by them with 4 maps using Ecutek. Avo stainless steel catback exhaust (original provided) Tein Flex A coilovers (original provided) Japan Racing JR18 alloys with Michelin Pilot sport S (original provided with wet tyres on) Red induction hose (original provided) MOT until 15th September 2021 Serviced around the same time by Toyota, last two services performed by Toyota once to fix recalls and recently last year because I haven't had time due to work. All other services done by family members with dates and mileage done. Might be able to find receipts if needed. Bad point: left valenti light has had the moisture issue that seems to have plagued all GT86's, unfortunately when drying the moisture out with silicone gel for some reason the casing got cracks on it but they don't leak. Tried to repair the best I can. Will get pictures when I can. I'm sure there are things I have missed and I will update accordingly with more recent photos. Location: Hillingdon £13995 ono Unfortunately I don't have the time to put a lot of this back to original spec. A few things were fitted when I bought it; TRD spoiler, sharkfin aerial, reversing camera, armrest, valenti lights. If someone has the time and know how; or knows someone they can get a real bargain by taking parts off and selling seperately. Apologies if I have missed anything and feel free to ask and will try to answer the best I can.
  9. Hi all. I am located in Lincoln, Lincolnshire. I'm happy to travel to meet you for petrol money, ideally we'd meet somewhere in the middle if you're far away. This would only apply for the exhaust as the other 2 items can be posted. All items are available for collection if you prefer. I have also posted this on the other UK GT86 Forum where I am more well known and been a member for +5 years. https://www.gt86ownersclub.co.uk/threads/q300-exhaust-mishimoto-silicone-intake-trd-rear-aero-stabaliser-4k-miles-done.19341/ I have the following parts for sale. 1) £750 - Invidia Q300 Catback Exhaust System Titanium Tips FITS: Toyota GT86 Subaru BR-Z (Original cost was £955) 2) £ 70 - Mishimoto Silicone Induction Hose - fits Subaru BRZ / FRS / Toyota GT86 - Blue (Original cost was £106) 3) £100 - TRD Aero Stabilizing Cover For 86 (ZN6) MS346-18001 (Original Cost was £175) Prices do not include delivery. If you want to buy all 3 items and collect/meet. I can knock some more money off. Each part has been on my car for a little over 6 months. I have sold my GT86 and in this time they've covered 4,000 miles. The parts are essentially almost new. Exhaust obviously has a bit of road grime on it to be expected but nothing major... pretty shiny still all in all! A bit of autosol and it would look absolutely brand new. I have sold quite a bit of things on here in my time, including another Q300 exhaust so this isn't my first rodeo. Payment will be via bank transfer or Paypal friends and family only. I do not accept cash. Please consult the pictures below: Q300 - Exhaust: Mishimoto Silicone Intake Hose: TRD Rear Aero Cover

    Notchy/Slightly rough 2nd -> 3rd shift when warm

    Thanks for the replies folks! Yeah all other shifts feel completely fine, 4>5 a little bumpy sometimes and 5>6 a tad stiff...but nothing overly remarkable. 3>2 is spot on every time. 2>3 isn't hard to get per se, it just feels a bit rough going in. I'm taking it to Gatwick tomorrow to see what can be done warranty wise. Going to try and drive another they have for sale to see if it feels any different. @BRZ-123 Are you running OEM oil in your box?

    servicing

    I looked through the service history of my vehicle after i bought it, all serviced by Toyota. wrong oil used every time, Diff oil, gear box, brake fluid, nothing was changed ever at any of the correct intervals or just missed completely. First thing i did was buy all the fluids myself and book it into a local garage so I know from my ownership it'll all be followed correctly from a fresh start.

    Thanks and have confirmation email. Found similar link via a few dealer websites but it's strange that any direct link on Toyota UK site has been removed. Even the blog about it that still up links to the service page that doesn't mention it any more lol I suspect Toyota UK are quietly pulling it 🙄

    Anyone got the link to the Toyota 5+ club registration? I thought it was under servicing on the Toyota UK site but I can't find it anywhere?

    Notchy/Slightly rough 2nd -> 3rd shift when warm

    Most common notchiness twins owners with MT gearbox observe - is harder to get into 2nd when cold. Most ignore, as it goes away after 5min of driving. Now if it's hard to get 2>3 .. imho it's something else. Unfortunately i don't know well, what it might be and how to fix. One thing i'd try, is to adjust plate that positions lever at right places .. was it reverse lockout plate? If that doesn't help .. while oil change is relatively simplest/cheapest thing to do, so worth trying for that reason, but i somewhat doubt if it will fix (after all, other gear engagement is fine?), i suspect something wrong with gearbox of this specific car. But as it's 2018 .. there should be warranty, no? Make dealership fix/replace it. Disassembly of gearbox to inspect synchros/gears and-or replace will take long time and will cost a lot. New gearbox costs extraorbitant sums (IIRC ~4K?). If warranty is not an option, i'd also explore to get used gearbox (600-1K), as imho it would be cheaper and quicker then disassembly/overhaul/cost of parts/time to receive them

    Cheap BBK swap

    So someone else is on a similar track of thinking and has asked for interest in FB on kits .. details below so you might want to explore and compare and contrast ≈===========≈ I wonder if anyone would be interested in purchasing brackets that allow you to run RS250 Megane Brembos on a GT86? These will also fit BRZ and Subaru Imprezas After looking at the price of second hand Brembo items I just couldn’t stomach the cost. 15-20 year old calipers that will more than likely need a rebuild and have probably been heli-coiled cause of galvanic corrosion. The MEGANE RS250 Brembos can be purchased brand new for approx €300-350 from lots of sellers on EBAY. The piston sizes are equivalent to the OE optional extra Brembos found on the 2017+ cars. Anyway I’ve designed these brackets that are made from billet aluminium and are KTL coated. For those of you who are not familiar - KTL coating is an automotive standard coating that is electro plated to these brackets. Using off the shelf Subaru WRX STi discs 326mm vs. 294mm & Brembo pads. This is a 100% bolt on solution. I would sell the brackets with all the associated hardware - GR10.9 bolts in automotive geomet coating. Then it’s just up to you to go to your local motor factors and buy the parts. All associated part numbers etc. will be supplied with the kit also. Please reply to this post if you are interested. I would need minimum 10. off confirmed orders of the brackets before I am able to get them manufactured. Approx €200 Sent from my SM-G781B using Tapatalk

    GT86 Racecar build

    Yes agree they have a questionable reliability but my preference was a centrifugal charger with air-air intercooler so choices are quite limited, I also love the power delivery and think it really suits the car, but perhaps my mind will change when it come time to replace it [emoji16]

    GT86 Racecar build

    Pretty cool stuff throughout. Missed this thread until now. Have to ask though, with all this effort why did you choose the only SC known for repeated failures?

    Or you look at your car often in show windows as you pass I look in reflections of parked cars for oncoming vehicles when I back out of my garage because the view is very limited.

    Notchy/Slightly rough 2nd -> 3rd shift when warm

    I don't have the newer model, but being an owner for a while can tell you that the gearbox is generally bullet proof with no reliability issues. It can how ever be a bit temperamental with the notchiness in those places you mention, two to three or three to two... I have tried everything and got no result except placebo. So my honest advise will be to get used to it and see that as a characteristic feature not as a limitation that needs to be addressed.

    Tuning Developments NA KIT + stock exhaust

    Yes indeed I know that also, thats partly why i picked this car, and also caus drivers of gt86s/brzs probably have a lot better reputation than drivers of st3s. Im defintely on the more mature side for my age so I'd like to affiliate myself with the former group of drivers! Oh wow only 25£, may be worth a go then when i have the £££ saved up for it, thanks for the info [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    And there is a good reason to it. Not many people crash these cars. The lower the accidents or thefts, the lesser the risk. BTW, Admiral charged me 25£ additionally for the TD manifold and Remap. So it's worth asking and is not a big premium. Sent from my SM-G781B using Tapatalk

    Tuning Developments NA KIT + stock exhaust

    100% i know that haha!! I'm very lucky indeed, was only doable because of the insurance prices, in fact for some reason it worked out cheaper than insuring my 1.2 polo i had just before this! Most other cars i was looking at, like a focus st3 were upwards of 2.5k to insure!
  26. Well if you do have to wait a bit, you can always console yourself with the fact that you're doing fairly ok already at 21 driving a stock 86. Got my first car at 25. A 45bhp 1 litre Polo 🤣

    Tuning Developments NA KIT + stock exhaust

    Ah interesting, im still only 21 so might need to wait a bit until I can get specialist insurance. Adrian flux wanted 4500 just to be insured on the stock gt86. Currently with admiral and theyre ok with mods but i reckon will cost a lot if i wanted to do a tune, was £60 just for my exhaust. Will look at those companies around renewal though, maybe after a year the price will go down as you say. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
