2020 Toyota Supra LE #1292
I haven't done a forum build thread in a loooong time, so I'm hoping I keep up with it.

I have a 2020 GR Supra in Nocturnal Black, Launch Edition #1292, which I have affectionately named Betty. I flew to a dealership in Connecticut to pick her up and then drove her 450 miles home to Virginia:

I previously built a 2011 Cadillac CTS-V, manual 6-speed:

And before that, a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST, manual & AWD swapped:

And I still own my 2012 Yamaha R6 for when Virginia weather wants to cooperate:

Yes, I'm aware everything is always all black and I have absolutely no variety when it comes to taste so don't anticipate anything different with the Supra, haha.

I raced auto-cross and road course in my previous builds, and I think the A90 is a perfect platform to be competitive in both so thats my current goal.

First things first, tint. 15% around and 35% windshield in ceramic film:

Before I hit 500 miles, I installed a K&N drop in intake filter, Verus resonator delete, Titan Motorsports catless downpipe and the MHD Stage 2 tune. I was pleasantly surprised at how much faster the car felt already:

My husband owns the white one, Launch Edition #422. He found his 2 days after I found mine. We were an expensive household that week :D

Had the car fully ceramic coated, makes the black paint SO much easier to maintain.

Also decided to go for a different look and swapped out the Rexpeed spoiler for the Seibon spoiler. Install was easy and took about 20 minutes. Haven't decided if I'm going to paint match it to the car yet
