    Michelin Pilot Sport 5?

    The Pilot Sport 5 even out yet? I’d be curious as to what they are like too. Personally I’m not a fan of Michelin tyres. I went with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asym 5’s over PS4’s. But would also like to see what the PS5’s are like.

    In comes the GR86

    Tbh we’ve all known for years that cone filters suck in hot engine bay air and that the stock air boxes are not the restriction that the aftermarket would make you believe. Thousands of people have done back to back dynos proving this.

    Post your GT86 / BRZ pic of day!

    First wash of 2022, the first time i’ve had the car out in daylight wearing its 2017+ facelift spoiler and first time i’ve ever shared pictures of my car on this thread
  4. As per title im looking for a spoilerless boot lid. If I could get one in Hot Lava Orange (H8R) then even better. Willing to travel nation wide for the right one.

    Brake callipers upgrade

    I agree, I'd save £310 and get the Reylands own discs. They aren't going to be poor quality.
  6. Hey Chaps, I've going to be replacing my prefacelift spoiler with a facelift version which means I'll have 5x holes that need filling/covering somehow. I'm just curious what others who have done the same thing may have done here? The obvious option is to take the boot lid to the body shop to have them filled, however I know some people have covered the holes with a small ebay style lip/led brake light etc I like the option of avoiding the bodyshop and finding something else to go over the holes. This at least means I can easily revert to the old spoiler if I change my mind. Cheers!

    Brake callipers upgrade

    APRacing (Cosworth Spec) 6pot/355mm floating fronts and matching APRacing 4pot/335mm rears. They cost £4300 from partbox but I was quite lucky that they were doing 20% discount at the time so got them for £3500.

    Brake callipers upgrade

    I wouldn’t worry too much about the brake balance. Most people only upgrade the fronts as they do all the work. I’d do as much as you are willing to spend. But if you can stretch to doing the fronts and rears its money well spent. I did both the fronts and rears and am glad I did as it’s neck snapping under heavy braking.
  9. Can you rotate the coil 90 degrees in the hole so the bolt hole flange part is out the way enough to pull off the connector? I generally use mechanics pick tools to undo connectors.
  10. Right now the used car market is on fire. Also Toyota confirmed the GR86 wont meet future emissions so it’ll only be on sale for two years. So I believe the smart money will be on selling your car now for top dollar, getting a GR86 on preorder and just doing without a sports car for a while until the new car arrives. Or if its your only car you could buy a few hundred quids worth of beater off ebay to use for 6 months (then just PX it in against the GR86 when it arrives). Supercharging/turbocharging your 86 is something many of us have done (myself included) with great results, but if you can sell your GT86 and get a GR86 with the combined money you would have otherwise spent charging your current car then makes sense to get the limited edition new car which has the power you are looking for straight out of the box.
