  1. Mine is also a pearlescent white 2017. Recently had about 60% of the front bumper painted after minor damage. Normal repair price and match is perfect.

    Hello all, my gt86 blanco

    And if you are forced down the Toyota route consider easing the financial load by selling the unused side decal. If you were nearer me I’d certainly buy it.

    Hello all, my gt86 blanco

    Understand the desire for originality but imo the remaining side decal was the best. Certainly consider living with it for a while and see what you think after a few months of ownership. Have fun

    Post your GT86 / BRZ pic of day!

    Just to underline that it is a GT, these pictures taken on a 3000+ mile European road trip in 2018. Hotel parking on the Amalfi coast and a great Villa stopover near Verona

    225/45/17 tyres?

    Just checked wheels on my 2017 Pro and they are 17 x 7. I’ve run Maxxis Victra Sport 5 size 225 (215 not available I think) on one wet track day so far and thought they were good. The price was £183 for four from tyreleader (plus fitting)

    Thoughts on Pirelli PZERO Nero Tyres?

    Thanks for the tyreleader recommend, I hadn't heard of them. Just had four Maxxis Victra Sport 5 225/45/R17 91V delivered for £184 all in - great price and looking forward to seeing how they perform at Bedford on 28 August. Maxxis tyres were also a suggestion in this thread so thanks also to SimonG68 and Deacon, others? for that.

  9. Off for my first MOT tomorrow - some rust on brake discs that I’ll need to rub off on the local by-pass first - I’m sure [emoji1986] will understand if I get stopped [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yes, also glad you’ve got in. I’ve been using a solar trickle charger periodically but now also ordered a ctek unit with battery condition indication and the fly leads I can leave in place - seems like a good solution as long as you don’t have to trail power cables across a public footpath Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Window box

    Temporarily installed window box when my wife decided to buy plants on day out in Worcestershire countryside. I’m thinking it looks good enough to become permanent 😎
  13. When I bought mine and saw battery issues I checked I had the 65 battery then use a solar conditioner with panel left on the dashboard. So far so good Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Similar thing happened to me in a Florida liquor store when I was 52ish - felt good till store owner said he was checking to see if I was entitled to the over 60s discount! Ouch! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
