    I don't agree, personally. For one, he never actually says what he wishes was different about it. It seems most of his complaints still stem from the fact that it's a BMW (I don't deny this one), and it is still somewhat of a nostalgia trip. I also dislike the comparisons he drew between cars, the M2C is more, the Z4 is a lot more, and the TTRS is more still. For the price point, it would be difficult for me to find another car that fulfills as many roles as successfully as the Supra.

    Yea, but then we're talking used, and you can get a Supra in the 40's with a few thousand.

    I really do wonder what Matt would say if he ever review a stock MKIV Supra ( he did on a 700whp MKIV ). He's comparing the nostalgia, the legend of the tuned MKIV with a stock 2021 car, doesn't seem fair to me. The other option would be to review Adam's LZ Supra, that would be a fair comparison.

    We do have takes on two stock Supra MKIV TT 6-speeds from Regular Car Reviews : )






    I do agree though that I wish Farah would comment more on specifics about the car and what he would still like to see improved (other than the wind buffeting which he mentioned). It seemed like he had mostly made up his mind beforehand when he got to drive the 2021 3.0L before posting his video.

    I found it interesting that he felt the brakes weren't quite enough for the power. Maybe this will be addressed with the GRMN and/or a TRD/GR over the counter brake upgrade kit at the dealer?

    An aftermarket AP Racing caliper and rotor upgrade was mentioned above and that sounds like a good alternative for the DIY folks.

    Exactly! I really feel like this car is hard to beat for the price and what it offers. I haven't seen a fair comparison yet. Everyone always throws out this or that car but typically it's used or in a completely different price class. Also.. as we all know. The Supra is selling far below msrp so that makes the price comparison even steeper.

    I guess 2 worst "reviews" I have seen so far and I saw all of them. Poor driving accompanied by random words. My grandma would put better content.

    This is a very biased report. I wonder whether you are president of the Mark IV fan club. Either way you make some very inconsistent comments and if you are comparing cars at very different price points it might be useful to spell out the difference.

    I used to watch most of his videos. But now I realize he's gotten too spoiled with driving truly incredible cars. Like okay, let me buy a 100k Cayman GT4 so I can get a "comparable" new 6 cylinder sports car. And his part about the "identity crisis" told me that he doesn't understand that its SUPPOSED to be daily capable car. If it was "focused" and all the other adjectives, it would probably drive like crap on the road. Dude needs to take a step back and reassess a little.
