  1. I think it depends a lot on what interest rate they are offering you. That will tell you what the repayment is going to be. If you pay back at the minimum rate and have a big balloon at the end you may get it under £300. I think reviews seem to be positive so far, though it's UK reviews that count. If they're really good, they won't be going cheap come June 2023. I don't expect it to quite go like the GR Yaris as its not a homologation special. Still at least you can get heated seats!

    In comes the GR86

    I was out for a walk with Richard yesterday. He said that the demo is expected in Spring, thinking March/April. He has some pre-orders in, but delivery is expected for June. Obviously we are awaiting full UK specifications. I would expect that to be released before the demo arrives, so anytime soon really. As soon as he gets the demo, I will be reviewing it.

    Japfest Silverstone Sunday, April 10, 2022 Experience non-stop high-speed performance track action including spectacular drifting displays, a huge retail village and over 4,000 cars on display from the UK’s thriving club scene. Firmly established as Europe’s biggest Japanese car show, Japfest is the premier event for the serious enthusiast with all day edge-of-the-seat track action; this show never ceases to amaze. Generally our first and usually our biggest gathering of Toyota GT86's and Subaru BRZ's for the year! I'm sure you all won't want to miss out on this one!

We look forward to welcoming the regulars aswell as the new people we have taken on over the past year. https://www.fastcar.co.uk/japfest-silverstone/ We will have our usual day before gathering at a hotel which will be the Hilton Double tree again as per last year.

    In comes the GR86

    Ah I see! The Yaris red, is simply 'Scarlet Flare' which has been available on the Corolla for a couple of years at least. It looks good in the sun, but it doesn't look good in my opinion when dirty or on a dull day. I had a courtesy Corolla in that colour two years ago.

    That's not what I meant. I meant that you may well have the colours that Will suggested.

    Richard did say colour are 'same as GR Yaris TBC'. So I suspect there are likely more colours to be available. The GR Yaris was only available in Gazoo Racing colours plus the pearl white. I would expect that if you put a deposit down now, when it comes to placing an actual order you can choose your colour then and it would seem likely there'll be more colours available judging by what we already know from other markets. The Neptune Blue is a really nice colour. 👍

    Haha! The BBS ones are made in Japan.

    In comes the GR86

    For the geeks out there, we've worked out on the GR Yaris forum that the wheels are a cheaper cast version with thicker spokes than the GRY circuit pack forged BBS wheels. PCD looks different which is is no surprise as fully expect GR86 to use 5x100PCD compared to the 5x114.3 PCD of the GRY.

    My GT86 Stolen- house burgled

    It really is. Mark is very upset about it, but can't see how he can sort it. Maybe there will be a way. We'll see.

    My GT86 Stolen- house burgled

    Pretty much certain it'll be written off. Mark will not be able to afford it to insure it again after this, so it's game over for that car. It would have been easier if it was burnt out in all honesty. Nothing will happen until Mark has an anti-fraud interview on Friday. Guessing this is because it's stolen recovered. Police forensics were done on Saturday. Nothing found.

    My GT86 Stolen- house burgled

    Both. They just smashed the crap out of it I expect, judging by how they launched it off my driveway. Obviously annoyed they didn't get the car they came for, so ruined the GT.

    My GT86 Stolen- house burgled

    We are pretty much definite it was one burglar who came in. I expect if I had got up sooner they would have legged it. The most common response by far, the police said. The last thing they want is confrontation. What is properly scary is that it took us 10 minutes to get through on 999. With that in mind, various trophies and stuff are now positioned around the house, just in case. Not sure I'd be brave enough to clobber a burglar, but just in case we are. Mark won't be leaving his keys downstairs again. Fortunately I am far more careful with mine. Disklok fitted and Ghost being installed tomorrow. Obviously anti snap locks fitted by locksmith last Saturday. Will think about posts too.
