  1. Missing piece on all US spec hoods?

    Does it have anything to do with factory wheel stance? If it sticks out and serves no real aero purpose it might be something that artificially extends the measurable fender beyond the wheel for legal reasons in certain countries. I've noticed those little tab parts on a few modern performance...
  2. What do you do for a living?

    Work in architecture for a small business, of which I am part owner.
  3. Dealer supplied Delivery Date

    Sheeeit, talk about tripping at the finish line.
  4. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    Not sure if you are specifically looking for a white A91-MT or just a white manual supra, but the Toyota website shows Jay Wolfe is supposed to be getting a white manual prem 3.0 at some point. Jay Wolfe is a markup / ADM dealer though. When I was shopping Supras there this past summer...
  5. Vehicles with worst Drivers

    "Worst Drivers" is a wide net... I mean, on one hand you have the octogenarians who can barely see over the wheel cruising around in their gold 90's Camrys ten under on the limit in the slow lane of the highway with a left turn signal on the whole ride. Then on the other hand you have the 20...
  6. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    I still see 5. One at Jay Wolfe, one at Lou Fusz, one at Tom Pappas, one at Weiss, and one at Ackerman. All are gray, no white. I might be seeing 5 because of my zip code and radius (50 miles)?
  7. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    What's funny is if I use True Car or Cars.com to search for 2023 Supras near me, they both come up nada. But if you go to Toyota's website and search for 2023's available near me it shows over a dozen headed in, what dealers they are going to, and where in the delivery process they are. My...
  8. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    They might -now-, but up until very recently they had a notice on their website saying something to the effect of "local sales only". I should also probably mention that the dealer I'm working with primarily sells trucks. They are a "country" dealer who is located in a very rural area, and the...
  9. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    I think car salespeople, like a LOT of salespeople, are too used to their potential customers being rubes or uninformed. They expect them to basically be marks to be taken, rather than customers to be satisfied... and that breeds a degree of contempt in some salespeople. They feel they can say...
  10. BMW background or just a lover of the supra?

    I've also never owned a BMW, my entire past garage lineup has either been Honda (or derivatives like Acura), Mazda, or Chevy. And I've owned everything from itty bitty super light weight toss cars like Miatas to American all grunt V8 muscle cars. What I want now, in what I feel is my last...
  11. A90 Supra life cycle: Incremental updates? New variants coming? What's next?

    I currently own a convertible that I'm ditching for a Supra. Honestly the last thing I want is another convertible (or removable roof). It might just be because I've owned a few convertibles for long stretches of time in a part of the country where you can really only drop the top for about...
  12. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    Thanks for the lookout, but to misquote Jenine from Ghostbusters I GOT ONE. I literally just got off the phone with my dealer. My allocation came through. Just got my Vspec sheet exactly as I wanted, no port installed options and no markup. Delivery date estimated to be around my birthday in...
  13. Functional Hood Vents OEM Style

    Are there any pictures of the front vents installed? And will they be available in the US?
  14. Manual Allocations in Illinois

    I've had my deposit for a premium manual in since July, and the dealer keeps telling me all the cars are going to the coasts and other regions first and she expects the midwest to get them very late this year or early next year.
  15. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    That is how I see it. If I get an allocation this year, great. If I get one next year, great. Eventually I'll get one. I refuse to pay a mark up for what is basically a regular car. For as much as we love to think otherwise, the Supra is not a Ferrari. It's a 60k car in a world where pickup...
  16. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    I wasn't sold on yellow until I saw one in person. Folks always say the Supra "looks better in person" and I think that goes for the yellow as well. I've seen just about every color of Supra in person except the A91 light blue and the new A91-MT colors, and to me the yellow is the one to have...
  17. How many Supra’s in your area?

    I'm in Saint Louis and while I know there are probably dozens and dozens of Supras here in town, but since they came out I have only seen four in the wild (not including the ones I saw at dealerships for sale). I saw a black one out in front of a mechanic in mid county more than a year ago, I...
  18. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    If you just sit and watch traffic something like 80% of the cars on the road here near me are either white, black, gray (or a various metallic shade), blue, or red. Every now and then you see a green car. But that four post bed of white / black / red / blue seems to be 99% of the cars in this...
  19. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    I was speaking more about the color yellow in my region in general. I've had three local dealers all basically tell me "yellow is a hard sell here" and one dealer even tried to convince me to abandon yellow in favor of another color. All three dealers have called me offering various 2022's in...
  20. 2023 m/t allocation in the US..which/when/where

    I'm in the exact opposite position from you, my preference is ONLY for yellow MT 3.0 Prem with driver assist and no other port addons. I'm basically looking for an unpopular color of a popular transmission of apparently an even more popular car in a region where this color is looked down on...
