    Toyota Supra TRD mods likely for Australia

    https://www.carsguide.com.au/car-news/toyota-supra-trd-mods-likely-for-australia-74862

    The all-new Toyota Supra hasn't even arrived on sale yet, but there's already a market emerging for modifications and additional equipment.

    A range of Toyota Racing Development (TRD) parts has been revealed, and it looks likely that - regulations permitting - the bolt-on bits will be offered in Australia when the Supra launches in September this year.

    The all-new Supra is already a sight to behold, but the new bolt-on TRD parts include a carbon front spoiler, carbon side skirts, carbon door finishers, carbon rear spats, a carbon rear spoiler and 19-inch forged aluminium wheels (19x9 up front, and 19x10 at the rear).

    Toyota Australia product planning manager, Orlando Rodriguez, said the company is looking at all possibilities for its performance hero model, as Australia's rampant car enthusiast culture will demand it.

    "That's something we're looking into," said Mr Rodriguez. "We need to look into whether it meets all of the ADR Australian requirements, but yeah, definitely something that could come up in the space - we'll keep you updated on that."

    Being a product of a joint-venture between Toyota and BMW - and with powertrains and technology taken from the Bavarian marque's stable rather than familiar Toyota tech - there's a question over how the company will cope with the servicing demands of the high-performance engine.

    Toyota Australia director of marketing and sales, Sean Hanley, said the new Supra may not be solely a Toyota product, but that the brand is confident that won't be a barrier to service or repairs if anything goes wrong.

    "We have shared information and we will make sure that our technicians are trained appropriately to perform any maintenance that is required for the Supra," said Mr Hanley.

    "I can assure you that our customers that buy Supra will be super looked after."

    My salesman called me yesterday and said they had received their allocation and he had a vin number for mine in the color I wanted - Absolute Zero. The spec sheet shows that it has the Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps. Any pictures yet on what that looks like? With all of the photos from the port there must be one that shows what the car looks like with those mirror caps.

    Your right. That is pricey. I was really hoping for the red mirror caps because that is one of the distinguishing features of the LE.

    May be able to request the red ones, and then sell the CF ones privately

    Tbh I hate the red mirror caps and would wrap them gloss black asap.

    I hope you don't have to pay the cf caps because it sounds like you didn't ordered them.

    If my dealer tries to force feed options on me I'm going ballistic.

    Wait for the aftermarket to offer CF parts like mirror caps, "door garnish" (LMAO at that name), front lips, side extensions and rear spoilers. It will be probably cheaper than TRD ones. These TRD reminds me of the BMW M Performance approach with their CF mirror caps, rear spoilers, front lips and the like. You can get cheaper and better quality on the aftermarket.

    We need something like these. Functional.

    Not something like this...

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51GVAvW-HDL._SX425_.jpg

    Aka only for looks. And these TRD parts looks like that only...made for looks. Similar to BMW M Performance Parts like so...https://www.shopbmwusa.com/PERFORMANCE/BMW-M-PERFORMANCE/EXTERIOR-DESIGN---STYLE

    And Toyota is charging BMW M Performance prices for it.

    I would like to assume that they either painted the carbon fiber mirror caps to red (on Absolute White) or they're going to give both.
    For sure paint job isn't that expensive, but to advertise the LE's with red caps and then to sell them with carbon fiber is rather awkward.
    Again, for sure carbon fiber is more expensive, but doesn't add "color" to the car as much as a red cap does.... Anyhow, I suppose Toyota wanted to throw in a few more things for the LE takers. I don't have a problem with that :)

    I highly doubt they will paint the carbon fiber. It would make more sense to include the CF mirror caps for people ordering Red LE.
