  1. EcuTek my 1 Month review

    Haha. It’s like 17 bucks to fill up the tank with 93 here in TX now. I keep it sport mode 100% of the time. If I want to just point a to point b drive, I’ll take the 4Runner ($21 to fill that up with 87).
  2. OBDLink MX+ with BimmerCode

    It just starts in sport mode - if I want it to go back to normal I can just hit the sport mode /normal mode toggle switch and it goes back to normal. I almost always drive in sport mode so i preferred it to start there without me having to hit the button every time I got into the car.
  3. OBDLink MX+ with BimmerCode

    I have changed mine to start in Sport Mode and to shut off exhaust sound that plays through the speakers (seriously helps sound quality)
  4. 2021 Supra 3.0 VS 2020 Supra Exhaust Comparison

    Oh wow, big difference. I love how my 2020 sounds stock and even better with the high flow single cat downpipe. I keep reminding myself that spending $2.5K on an aftermarket exhaust just isn't going to be worth the difference (as a US market Supra) after I installed a DP. That said, if I owned...
  5. HKS HI-POWER exhaust

    You're not far off. Recently installed a catted downpipe (powerneedy) and the sound is maybe 95% there vs. most of the aftermarket exhausts I've heard online (even equal or better than some I've heard). There is definitely a notable difference in exhaust sound even with a catted downpipe --...
  6. The End of An Era... the last Supra?

    Specifically regarding a recession/depression -- I'm not so sure. The issues we are having in our economy right now are not systemic; this downturn is directly due to temporary restrictions placed on the populace. You have to wonder about the bounce back as well, as some people are still able...
  7. Dealer Flash Update Lock

    Where have you seen information about recent updates locking the ECU? There was a post in the MHD thread that speculated the ECU had been locked but it was just user error. I also recall another post about the dealer updating/resetting someone’s ECU and them losing their tune but again, no...
  8. Why does it sound like this?

    I had a 2016 Tacoma with the JBL system as well — it was nearly as good as the Mark Levinson system I had in the IS-F. The Supra system is garbage compared to those two. I almost thought something must be defective, but no, that is how it is. One thing I did that helped was to turn off the...
  9. Best catted downpipe ??

    I was really torn between catted or no cat for the DP -- mainly just based on price and whether even bothering with a cat was going to be worth the almost $600 extra (which I can only hope won't ever trigger a CEL). That said, I saw Powerneedy came in with a good price on their catted DP this...
  10. MST Toyota Supra Intake - Best Price + Free Shipping!

    You folks are still shipping orders out during all of this craziness?
  11. Audio upgrade options

    I had the ML system in my IS-F and it was fantastic — but the JBL audio in a fucking Tacoma sounds way better than this. (Even my 2019 trd pro 4Runner who’s jbl system was last updated in 2007 isn’t as bad) My hearing is kind of shit, so take my opinion with a grain of salt — but it sounds like...
  12. Steering Wheel - Carbon Fiber

    Wow, the one with the Alcantara trim is really nice looking.
  13. 2020 Supra Firesale?

    That is below dealer cost. I imagine you purchased it in Texas so its a Gulf States Toyota region and it would also be below distributor cost. Unless they got you on your trade in/financing (and your story is true) -- someone lost thousands of dollars on that car. How many miles did it...
  14. Any Premium turbulence grey supra delivered yet???

    This is the color I have on order — sight unseen other than a handful of real world (not rendered) photos of it around the net. Thanks for posting the photos of it; they are best of this color I’ve seen. I like it.
  15. Do NOT buy a Supra right now

    You usually don’t have the full details of the deal and why they were able to get the price they did. Maybe they got hosed on the trade-in or financed with questionable credit through the dealer. You might pay below invoice, yet still provide the dealer with big profit. Then sometimes with...
  16. Do NOT buy a Supra right now

    For 2019, transaction prices for corvettes run 90-92% of MSRP (transaction prices includes customer paid cash incentives; does not included finance/lease or dealer cash incentives). Highest discounts as a % of MSPR are on the stingrays with the Z51 package which sell for ~87% of MSRP. The ZR1...
  17. Do NOT buy a Supra right now

    Hah! That’s exactly what you would expect them to say — of course they want to make an extra 6K on your deal. I agree with the previous comment, I’d be surprised if these are still going for over MSRP after November. They aren’t planning to produce a ton so you’re not going to see them...
  18. Comments & Reactions from the Web about the new Supra

    The bottom line is that it doesn’t make business sense to develop a sports coupe from the ground up at this point. Cars sales have been on the decline for the last 7-8 years — so far this year the US light vehicle market is surpassing 70% SUV and truck, the highest it has ever been. In...
  19. Supra vs C8 Corvette

    OEMs almost never lower the price of a model that’s already on the market (other than Tesla). Maybe you’ll see some sales incentives and dealers come off MSRP, but don’t expect much (or a value package after 3-4 years on market). This isn’t a RAV4 — they aren’t planning to sell many of these...
  20. This is the 2020 mid-engine Chevy Corvette

    I’d be shocked if Supra sold anywhere near 10k/year in the US. IHS, a company that forecasts global auto sales, has C8 peaking at 23k/year — but I’d imagine they thought would cost much more than it does now. If it starts at <$60k I’d say 30k/year easy if it isn’t production constrained. (And...
