  1. Officially ordered my A91 edition

    Fly. Your salesman should be able to pick you up at the airport.
  2. How Reliable Is The Supra?

    8K miles? Follow up when it has 50K, 75K, 100K etc. Over 150K miles and the report might actually mean something ;)
  3. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    You may want to read several posts before the one you have quoted. That's where the "attacking" started...and you put a transmission "in" a car, not "on" it. In the words of Randy Pobst, while hot lapping a nice auto trans car: "A monkey could drive this thing." :D
  4. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    You guys should report your scientific findings on 86/BRZ reliability to Consumer reports ASAP. Apparently, they are way off! :D https://www.torquenews.com/1084/10-most-reliable-cars-consumer-reports-subaru-brztoyota-86-ranked-2
  5. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    BMW has suffered with poor QC for some time now. This car isn't two years out, and quick look at the "problems" board here tells me I was right to stay away from the car. Yes, the B58 is solid (except for oil leaks), but that doesn't do any good when you have constant electrical/chassis issues...
  6. Condensation in tail lights

    Why would anyone want them to replace the tail lights with the same leaking units? The only logical course would be for owners to report the the issue, and hope for improved parts.
  7. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    Sounds like you've had some bad luck. Reliability is important to me, which is why I find BMWs reliability, and resale, off-putting, even with better warranty service from Toyota. The 86 has had 8 years for issues to surface and be corrected. Let's see how these 1st & second year BMWs hold up...
  8. Any interest in a Twisted Sisters drive?

    This is a beautiful Texas Hill Country drive, part of which follows the Frio River canyon. I've done it a few times, on a motorcycle. Much of the exposure along the route will "disappear" a vehicle that leaves the road, so a buddy or two is a good idea, or at least let someone know where you are...
  9. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    It's the driver, not the car... ;)
  10. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    I haven't watched the video above, because the factors that make up the right car for, depend on your tastes, and what you want to do with the car. Certain factors are important to most, like reliability. I agree with the idea that much over 300hp is too much for the street. It's easier to agree...
  11. '21 orders opening?

    Depends on the dealer..., but $1K should be enough to show you're serious. Without a ballpark date, I wouldn't sweat it.
  12. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    Love that red as well, same I chose in '13 :)
  13. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    Yes. On a road course, especially a technical one, it's 95% talent/set up over power. I can't count the times I've seen NA miatas hound cars with 6x the HP on track.
  14. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    The Supra is too new to have a "known issues" list, but BMW has had more than its' share of issues, which knock them well below Toyota and Porsche in both reliability and resale. In any case, Toyota has a better warranty track record. As far as "who cares" about MT: I do. I've driven many higher...
  15. Supra vs 86 Compared and Contrasted in TFL Review

    I just bought my 2nd 86 (1st was a '13 FRS). I decided this after driving a '19 718 CS w PDK. I haven't been able to drive a supra, but I haven't heard anyone say the tranny is better than a PDK. As good as the PDK was (and it may have grown on me), I realized that I really wanted to get back...
  16. Toyota Supra and BMW Z4 Sales Figures

    Not so obvious if you're shopping for a Supra on Autotrader. For the 1st time since dealers were stocked on '20s, a search on this site for new Supras yields less than the 1000 result max. As of this post, 977 new and 118 used Supras are listed. I am surprised to see the number still listed at...
  17. The End of An Era... the last Supra?

    "Excesses of the past"? Sounding a bit post-apocalyptic, aren't we? This is not the Great Depression. The US economy will come back quickly, once restrictions are lifted. Sure, you could find yourself over extended with loss of income, and I'm not saying there won't be deals out there. Many...
  18. PhD Racing Supra A90 WINS Super Lap Battle COTA Street class!

    Did you ever have the cracking issue with stock rotors on the S2K? When I was tracking my '08 CR, some guys were getting hairline heat cracking on their S2Ks...it would be welcomed to hear the Supra rotors were more stout, under the same driver...
