    Test Drive
    had a missed call yesterday, No caller id, 10 minutes later received an email from 'Toyota Demo' if still interested in a test drive an to call or email them, replied to email, unable to call them because no number was given in the email.

    Anyone had the same or know what number to ring?

    My dealer has a WhatsApp group for the people ordering the Supra, someone was on the same boat as you and missed the call. The other person said they were given the number 08000721511 in a confirmation email if they needed to change their booking at all, and apparently the other person got it booked from there. Might be worth a try?

    Just been given same number by dealer, Its Enterprise, yes the car hire firm, who are organising the test drives.

    There appears to be just one vehicle doing a tour of Lancashire, currently in Blackpool, next stop Preston this weekend, then Blackburn, Bury & Bolton etc., test drive booked for although will probably have already collected own vehicle if it goes to schedule.

    Try ringing, Enterprise on 08000721511, I spoke to Seb on Toyota desk, they have a list of names of those who have ordered/shown an interest in the supra to see when the demo vehicle is at your nominated dealer to book a test drive.

    was about to take an insurance policy out with toyota today until they told me they don't cover PPF

    Must be the only company who doesn't cover that

    What’s your verdict after a week of ownership?

    2 feelings:

    I love it. However, I have not driven a decent car made after 1999 before this, so I have 20 years catching up to do. It's so fast compared to my GT4, it takes some getting used too. Adaptive cruise control is a dream come true. It feels so quick under full throttle. It cruises in 8th gear at 40mph when commuting. Comfort and sport modes are night and day. Comfort is a dream to drive, sport really kicks in with its auto rev matching. Like any modern car, compared to a 90's its like the car is driving for you. This is a good/bad thing. It feels like driving a computer game (bad) / but it feels like your driving a computer game (good). I have a flappy paddle gearbox! In comfort mode, you just drive and go. In sports mode, you just drive and go, it knows how to respond to your driving. Manual mode is great fun. 20 years of tech is incredible.

    I hate it (not really). I never thought I would get to the point in life where I could drop 55k on a car, let alone drive a brand new car. I'm scared to drive it because I don't want to scuff it on bush's on country roads or scratch the wheels trying to park. Learning where the front wheels are in the first few days is frustrating.

    I have not encountered any issues with the car except getting supra connect working with my phone.

    Really comfortable. This is my new daily driver and I couldn't be happier/prouder of my new car!

    My delivery date was delayed from last week to end of October (no explanation).
    My "supra champion" has been following up on cars that have already arrived but where the order has been cancelled. He has been told that those cars have to go back to Toyota UK, who will allocate them to the next person on the waiting list. And apparently they do actually mean the waiting list, not existing customers who are still waiting for their cars. That means that someone who didn't reserve and pre-order is likely to get a Supra six weeks earlier than some of us who did...
