Whether due to "teething problems" with changes to MY21 or simple luck of the draw on the assembly line... the fact that I've put 20K completely trouble-free miles on my MY20 (and been able to actually drive it for an additional year) means no regrets whatsoever. I'll take that any day over a chance of oil consumption issues and a locked DME.

Most of the differences between the two are only going to be noticed when driven back-to-back or on a track (or at least on completely deserted roads). I can't even open it up to it's full capabilities for more than a few seconds before being stuck behind a soccer mom in a van.

If they'd done a major upgrade in the interior on the other hand (iDrive 7/8, better seats, audio, etc.) then I would have a few regrets I imagine. ;) The aftermarket can easily solve everything else - and even some of those.
Exactly this. The 21 breathes better up top……….which unless on a track is totally useless. As Digicidal said, after a few seconds of fun I’m stuck usually behind some soccer Mom, traffic, etc. welcome to New England. :confused1:

I'm wondering if this should be titled, "Any 2021 Owners regretting their purchase?" after all the issues /w oil & ECU. :D

In my honest opinion, both are great models and shouldn't have any regret after buying any model year of supra. But if you do, I don't think it's MY specific and you should move onto next car.

Oil burning is exaggerated and Mission Performance plans to release tunes later this year.

None here. Downpipe and tuned 2020 on E30 made 471/553 dynojet. Factory unlocked ECU. 20 spools a stock turbine housing slightly quicker. HKS hipermax hybrid kit was designed for the 20 not the 21. Besides a 20 can run a 6 port head if you so desire and then have 11:1 compression.

The majority of people complapining either don’t own a 21 or don‘t read the owners manual. When people complain about having to add some oil at 5K miles when they have bolt ons and drive their car one quarter of a mile at a time I shake my head.
