    Clearly a BMW hater, so when a Supra has BMW parts he starts flaming. His comments mean nothing..

    "Its slow, can't stop, can't turn" This was very funny too

    Quick search on the interwebs shows this guy is not “pretty well known” anywhere and also that a good majority of his IG uploads are the mk5 supra -__-

    Now, some older folks remember watching HVI or BMI and seeing him & his GTR. Interview is a bit long, so can skip til 15:00.



    TLDR; he pretty much doesn’t like it & tbh, I think that’s fine as an opinion. He helped bring tuning world bigger in 90’s and he have legit point. Seeing, building and driving crazy JDM cars, so he knows what he likes and don’t like.

    Do I feel same as him? No. I enjoy new Supra. Don’t think it’s perfect and need to update some of the stuff to be so call “perfect”. I hope GR continue to do annual update, which Tada-san promised.

    Having both like & dislike helps improves and update the car to be better... as long as manufacturer listen to the right ppl.

    He mentioned how he didn't like the R35 GTR either and preferred the R34.

    I'm not sure where you guys are looking but he's not just some schmuck.

    Not sure if you addressed this elsewhere but what would make it perfect in your opinion.

    Well to me he is, bashing on a car without any type of data

    Why doesn't he post the stock RS3 and A45 numbers on the Fuji track he was testing in?

    "Slow, cant stop and cant turn" in comparion to what exactly? A turbocharged NSX-R ? Or a Nismo GTR?

    He starts by flaming BMW so that says it all to me personally
