How are dealers getting 2022s? It isn’t even on the Toyota website configurator.
It's not at all unprecedented for 2022s to be available for order or even on dealer lots before the website configurator is updated. Manufacturers update the dealer ordering system first and then eventually get around to the public-facing website. Since they have to update the website configurator for every model and trim (and associated options), I'd wager Toyota prioritized the highest volume vehicles first...

Thanks for that info.😊

I ordered my 22 a couple of weeks ago. My dealer took my $500 deposit and said best case would around Thanksgiving when mine came in. It's 3.0 premium phantom gray. Don't know if the color will delay it any. I'm in Northeast Tennessee, so I know we will probably be one of the last regions to start getting them. My fingers are crossed that mine will come in on time if not early. I have already bought a couple of small parts for it. Watching Youtube videos is controlling my patience right now, but that won't last too long.

Mine is slated to arrive mid to late Oct, but I ordered all of my parts already because there is a long wait for some of these parts. Something about Covid... Hate waiting

Good idea. Which wheels + tires are these?

Are you paying MSRP or did you negotiate price?

MSRP. I've bought 3 vehicles from my dealer and bringing my daughter there tomorrow to talk about trading her Scion XB in. That will make 5 cars bought by us. I'm going to try and see if that will give me a better price. 🤞

Yeah I put a deposit about a week ago, it was 1k and the sales manager was very clear that the car would be reserved and not sold from under the rug. I trusted them on that.

Here’s the 2022 3.0 in Nitro yellow. Base model so the brembos aren’t painted. Idrc though.

If you're in the DMV what did you end up doing with the front license plate? I kind of want to risk not putting one on but on the other hand VA cops are dicks lol

there are a few front plate mounting options for the GR. I used the Perrin mount that screws into the driver’s side tow hook

I didn’t put one on because I believe it’s a secondary offense in VA and I try to drive safe and spirited in the right situations. I pass cops often and no stops for not having one, same with my previous 86.
