  1. Car shutter when braking.

    How do those come loose?! Did you mod the suspension? If I was Toyota and suspension bolts were loose on an unmodified car, I’d tighten them with locktite and go back to look for other examples of that occurring.
  2. Extended warranty

    I would double check with whoever you want to buy your extended warranty from, but pretty sure a Toyota extended warranty just needs to be purchased before the original 3/36 basic warranty expires. If you’re buying through someone like Jennifer, I’m pretty sure the price is the same throughout...
  3. Extended warranty

    I want to say it was a little over $3K. TLDR: I wouldn’t bother asking the local dealer to match the price. Way too detailed version… You can ask your local dealership for their best price but it’s doubtful they’d get close. I negotiate a lot of car deals for families & friends and always...
  4. Toyota Paint Code, BMW Paint Code, BMW Part# Touchup Paint

    None of the local Toyota dealers had it in stock so buying it at BMW was the easiest way for me to find it. I picked it up at the local BMW dealer. Interestingly, it was cheaper for me to buy it from them online and pick it up vs walking in and buying it at the parts counter. A61 Carmine Red...
  5. 2021 Value?

    I think you might be under pricing your car if you’re listing it for sale by owner vs selling it to a dealer. I thought this Refraction Blue was way over priced but he seems to have sold it relatively quick (3-4 weeks)...
  6. Throttle hesitation

    My 2021 just started doing this after the recall was performed last weekend. it’s ECU date is 6/20. Not sure if that makes a difference.
  7. Official Manual Transmission discussion thread

    I would've bought a manual Supra if it had been available and wouldn’t have had wandering eyes but planning to move on and put a deposit on a 2023 Z06. I know…it’s an automaticbut it sounds nuts! Who knows in the long run though. I’m notoriously cheap and may keep the Supra to preserve cash...
  8. Any interest in a Twisted Sisters drive?

    Interested but depends on my son’s golf tournament schedule. Let us know what day you have in mind.
  9. Navigation not loading after software recall

    Do you recall which dealership they went to for the recall? I’m scheduled to have the update performed at RR Toyota this weekend. I’ve spoken with the Supra tech there and he’s the only one I trust with my MKV.
  10. Extended warranty

    I went with the 10/125 plan through Jennifer and it was super easy. Personally, I’d rather pay a known amount up front vs chancing it all the way to 125K miles. I was thinking about it for a while but made my mind up when the dealer had to replace the electric power steering rack under 5K...
  11. Paint Protection Film on Supra

    It’s been a while since you had the suntek ppf ultra applied at bespoke. Still happy with it? That’s the same shop and ppf I’ve been considering for my 2021 but I haven’t pulled the trigger on it. Thanks for the info!
  12. Car shutter when braking.

    Have you tracked your car, are you aggressive on the brakes, do you live in a hilly area? Could be warped rotors. It would feel like a pulsation through the brake pedal and sometimes through the steering wheel. I haven’t run into that with the Supra but it’s been an issue for us with several...
  13. Cannot measure oil

    Not sure where you’re located but Aaron at Round Rock Toyota (in Texas) solved a few early issues for me (replaced the steering rack, solved a computer issue that made the computer go nuts…). I got the chance to speak with him when my car was in for service and he seemed experienced and well...
  14. Looking for San Antonio people

    A lot of the Austin MKV owners mention PPE in Georgetown for mods. The owner is pretty cool and has one of the faster MKV’s in Austin. https://www.performanceplaygroundengineering.com/
  15. SVRA / Cars & Caffeine at COTA?

    Full disclosure. I live in Austin so it’s easy for me to get out there. I’ve gone to watch he vintage races every year for the past several years. It’s my favorite racing of the year but I’ve always gone strictly to watch the racing. I had no idea they host a car show until I noticed the...
  16. SVRA / Cars & Caffeine at COTA?

    Anyone attending the vintage races at COTA and registering for the associated “Hagerty Cars & Caffeine” car show in early November? I noticed the Corvette club plans to have their own car corral and wondered if any Supra owners are planning to attend...
  17. Will Catless Downpipe Void Warranty?

    I asked the Supra tech at my local dealership about mods recently. He said it’s up to the service manager and Toyota. When we spoke about specific mods, he said cat back exhausts and cold air intakes were probably fine but commented I might run into trouble with a catless or high flow down...
  18. Reduced Driver Assistance Warning Popped Up

    Problem solved! The issue happened in January when I owned the car for ~1.5 months and 1,500 miles. Six months and 5,000 miles have passed since then with no recurrence of the issue. I got a chance to speak with the Supra tech at my dealership recently…He said he hasn’t seen the safety...
  19. It's Time to Play "Will This Fit Back There?" / Your most ridiculous trunk pictures stories!

    Golf carry bag, golf pull cart, and small cooler to strap onto pull cart. I made a dealer prove it could carry a full set of clubs and cart before I bought my MKV since my son plays a lot of tournaments and I needed a “practical” car to get him to his tournaments. Now if it would only make it...
  20. Discounted new Supra’s on Autotrader website…

    I keep seeing people mention looking for a tunable MKV but wonder if they’re just looking / hoping to find one or if people are willing to pay extra for a tunable MKV. Just curious after a local shop made a similar comment based on my Supra’s build date.** **I was a looking for an exhaust...
