    As above JW191 posted. More in-depth impressions from Matt Farrah Smokin Tire Podcast stuff from 47mins. A lot of the Americans saying Evolution of our current cars. Lots of door card and screen stuff, interior wise from my 2017 model I see.

    GR86 in Gran Turismo Sport

    Gonna have to try it some more on other tracks like Nur. Yeah I think most newer cars generally lack character not sure if it is them making them safer stability wise.

    Bonnet alarm sensor

    Cheers guys this happened to me only but today on my 2017 GT86 ! Was looking for like 30 mins to see where this cup thing came from, in the engine bay. Lining up the cup to the sensor was a nightmare, I have glued the cup to the adhesive sticker with original Guerilla glue (apparently this can take 100degress of heat, I know engine bay gets very hot). If this does not work, and it falls off again I guess I’ll do the cable tie trick, my other thought was a small firm sponge material or something. Or some people were saying (in some other thread about engine heat) as gets hot in engine bay some epoxy as above also said, or window seal stuff that can take high heat. Not sure how well these epoxy and window seals glue though. It is silly a small sticky pad for this vital piece of plastic.

    I have a question and think I know the answer but cannot find it. I take it Tetsuya Tada GT86 and GR Supra Chief Engineer had no involvement in this GR86 car? From design photos I did not see him and no mention. Obviously early days and he could either be busy on S58 engine GR Supra or manual GR Supra, or something else entirely but would be nice to see if he had any input in this.

    Service prices

    Cheers for this info as my 2017MY only done 20k miles, I take it intermediate service is fine and they will charge extra on top for brakes, tyres etc if needed doing?
  13. Yeah car parts are mega expensive I want 2017 TRD front lip which looks cool but £800! Regards your badge placements. So some GT86 differ greatly with badges too I have noticed, example mine has no side new 86 circle badges which confused me so I Googled some car images and seems some have no badges, some have them. So it is probably a spec/no spoiler thing as mine just GT86 on bottom right thing or 2017/18/19/20 Model year difference.

    I am a excited they say handling is better, and stiffness but it is the same chassis remember so will not be night and day. Will be fun to hear how it drives. It is also like 1cm lower nit sure how many ch difference this will make, wonder how noticeable BHP and torque will be. When I change cars choices will be hard GR Supra, GR86, GR Yaris, 400Z (Hope comes to U.K like 2 litre GR Supra where Toyota changed their mind).

    New GT86 owner

    Really nice I was torn betweeen red and white. Now you mention it I only noticed the notchy gear box feeling the other day, but blue Subaru temp light was still on gauge so that maybe be why.
