  1. Infotainment Favorite Touch Buttons - any other uses?

    One for the single radio station I ever listen to, one for tires, one for oil, one for trip computer... the others are a bit too far away for an easy reach to matter - simpler to just use the controller for the rest IMO.
  2. Toyota Presents World Debut of the New 2022 GR 86

    It looks just like a miniature (and budget) version of the RC-F I had. I think I would have preferred it actually - especially at <40% of the MSRP. Doubt many others would feel that way however. I certainly didn't until I'd owned it for a few months. ;)
  3. First oil change, when did you guys get yours done?

    Too bad you didn't have an analysis done of that... would have been interesting to see what the actual composition of the debris was (i.e. which metals were involved, what was sealant/gasket material, etc.). I tried to do an analysis on my first change but the dealership "forgot" to pull any...
  4. Toyota Supra gone after 2023, Partnership with BMW to Continue

    Am I the only one that's a bit sad they're not actually doing that? ;) I've already got my MKV... and I know my wife would jump at the opportunity to trade our disappointing (to say the least) RX350 for a X7 M50i... especially if the BMW premium was reduced like the Z4->MKV is... if it were...
  5. Car excessively burning oil?

    I think you definitely don't have the issue. If you're tracking it that hard and only need 1.5qt in 6K miles... you're golden. Heck, probably have ~15% of that amount coating your charge pipe (or in the catch can if you use one). :p Many people are burning that much with just regular driving...
  6. First oil change, when did you guys get yours done?

    Yeah, pay-walled whitepapers are the bane of my existence (don't care as much about automotive engineering... but I sure wish the membership to AES was a bit cheaper). To the other point... that's the real issue - even where there is empirical data (and available directly without surrogates)...
  7. First oil change, when did you guys get yours done?

    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/oil-change-truths/ or https://www.popsci.com/earthtalk/article/2008-08/science-changing-your-oil/ (they're both the same article...) or https://actascientific.com/ASNH/pdf/ASNH-02-0083.pdf (paper discussing re: cooking oils, but viscosity changes, etc...
  8. Who has highest mileage?

    That is the max... it's the line not the top of the bar. It shouldn't go above where it is in the picture.
  9. Supra vinyl design

    Not my taste, but it's a wrap... so why not? If you decide you don't like it later - you take it off... it's just money. ;) With how often some people swap wheels... a 1-2 year wrap is dirt cheap by comparison. I would recommend PPF on all the white areas however... so they're just as...
  10. 2022 Nissan Z Leaked with Specs

    Well, considering the interior of my past G's and Z's - it won't be that much of a letdown for most and expected for many. If they just manage to improve the seats, honestly I don't mind - at least they've used good plastic (i.e. it doesn't crack and fade super quickly). If they really are...
  11. Wheel Fitment

    Plus they're cast wheels so possibly not as durable either. Some are fine, others crack pretty easily - especially at this price point IMO. I'd say a downgrade in multiple ways. ESR has forged options (although most are unappealing to me aesthetically speaking, but that's subjective)...
  12. Who has highest mileage?

    Have you checked your mirror adjustment switch? The passenger mirror will only tilt when the switch is in one position (with the driver mirror selected). It's actually a nice feature as you can turn it off and on as needed. Yours may very well be broken, but I just thought I'd ask in case you...
  13. Who has highest mileage?

    WOW! That's a busy 2.5 months! :thumbsup:
  14. Make the Supra quieter on highways

    Without a doubt, the biggest variable in this equation (assuming stock wheels and tires that is) is going road conditions and tire wear. Some tires get louder as they wear and others get quieter. I'm not sure where the PSS sits in that regard... but mine are 14K miles in... so definitely...
  15. 2021 Supra A91 screen brightness

    Since most (if not all) adjustments made by Bimmercode are reversible (and are options already present in the default code) - it would be a very, very difficult argument to make for invalidating the warranty. About the only possible approach to that would be invalidating the warranty only on...
  16. Want to tune, so which year should I buy?

    So in other words... it's a tiny bit of a payback for taking the depreciation hit of getting a 2020 before they announced the power bump in the 2021. :p (Or at least a benefit to getting one of the first 2021's to hit the lots).
  17. Want to tune, so which year should I buy?

    You'd also have to be wary of any units which were updated by the dealership which I believe would then lock them even if they were "born" early enough. I'm not 100% positive on that, but I'm pretty sure I read a few threads of people with unlocked units which were locked after the update.
  18. Make the Supra quieter on highways

    You are correct about the difference in DBMeter Pro - I have mine calibrated to a +6dB on A-weighted measurements - which is what the difference was between the app on my phone and my Reed wand (naturally there's some vairance in the adjustment I'm sure so that's probably still a +/- 3dBA at...
  19. Wouldnt Rev after starting

    I quite like the looks of it... completely different purpose and design (muscle vs. sport) but honestly the biggest issue I have with the Challenger is manufacturer (reliability). I know they've gotten much better than the past... but the Mopar of the 80's left such an impression on me, I'm...
  20. Make the Supra quieter on highways

    Just did an informal test on mine on the way to the office... it was raining, but with limited traffic (I work nights) and DBMeter Pro on my iPhone showed: MIN: 63dBA MAX: 74dBA AVG: 66dBA That was at 80 MPH (cruise set @ 82), on 38PSI tires, stock interior over 5 minutes. It included a...
