I agree about the tire noise on asphalt. That is annoying. But once it's out on the open road, it's pretty sweet!Wow this thread is dead! Can't believe there aren't more SW USA owners by now. Picked up the 3.0 Premium in downshift blue last month (3/2020). Its still stock although I've bumped a few bimmer codes already. This is my daily drive and so I'm not all that anxious to sink another $5k into it solely to impress the neighbors or track it. Still, there are some things (such as catted dp) that may be worthwhile. I have a few bones to pick with the Supra, like excessive tire noise on asphalt, but still love the car. Breaking it in, however, is a pain in the ass.
