    Any idea if we're getting the half red/half black Alcantara seats seen in the Japanese market cars?

    I don't believe so, but knowing Toyota, they'll bring it in some wacky special edition in a year or two.

    The car will receive a power bump, but I never heard months vs years. One of the higher ups said he was thinking it would be around 2 years, and that was back in January but I'd have to check. (I think most of us would expect this sort of thing)

    I was under the impression that was for the regular car though.

    Based on the Car and Driver recent test results, the 385hp engine is already here.

    This is what I'm saying. The new MKV is a 385hp car

    I was all set on getting a Launch Edition, but I feel like if I wait a little longer, there might be a better "special edition" model out there and yes, i'm a sucker for those since I have a Series.Blue BRZ.

    Considering acceleration times posted by Car and Driver review, I have a feeling that US Supras are already equipped with 382hp engine without the particulate filter despite the fact that Toyota is advertising that the car has 335hp.

    Something is up for sure. It doesn’t add up to a 3.8sec 0-60. Even the stated 4.1sec 0-60 seemed undoable with 335hp at 3,397lbs.

    I don't know if we'll get a dyno posted anytime soon, but I still plan on dynoing the day I get mine. I know it's down the road a bit, but I really think this car is underrated.

    one of the reviews in europe timed it at 4.0secs already. And thats for the Europe car. so the car is underrated will be my conclusion.

    He states the heads are not the only thing different on the M1 and O1

    Lol, I don't think anyone here thought it was just the manifold, esp considering the heads have to be entirely different for those different manifolds to work. There's already a thread on here from a few months ago outlining all the differences between the M1 and O1, including the block and turbocharger differences.

    That being said, this gentleman is spot on with the WLTP stuff, and so the reasoning is definitely legit. Just still odd that BMW/Toyota were a bit shortsighted with how this engine would fare with the current emissions regulations and are changing things so soon. Either way, doesn't matter, more horsepower is a good thing, and sooner is also a good thing. Props to ynguldyn for finding the info, I guess it remains to be seen when exactly these changes are rolled out.
