That’s true, all Supras need a little time before it will open the valve. You hit the sport button right after initial start and it’s a couple minutes before the valve opens. But if you’re already warmed up then it’s a little odd to only be coming out of the left.
Actually the OEM likely has the best filtration. The aftermarket filters boast about airflow which means they do not filter as much brand new. The ironic thing about filters (engine intake, cabin air, even home HVAC) is the dirtier they get the better they filter because the openings get...
Well… brand new, yes. But eventually even my BMC drop in could do a better job at filtration if I let it get dirty enough. There’s a very fine line that is the sweet spot between filtration and flow. You’d hope BMW did their research to find it with the OEM filter.
Don’t believe there is and also wouldn’t believe the LED strip could produce enough lumens to function safely as a headlight.
Edit: Also that strip blinks for the front signal so essentially your headlight would be blinking amber whenever you indicate.
