    Hi guys as the title says, I'm new to this forum! I used to own a Mk3 Supra, then switched to an N/A 350z which I boosted, then sold that..now I'm living the lux. Style driving a Lexus lol. I have been with Toyota for 10 years and each dealer will have 1 Supra technician to work on the cars, I have plenty experience with major repairs AND have plenty experience in the modified industry due to my previous car. I'm hoping to help you guys out as well as get your help too! Feel free to ask me any questions as will I!!!!

    Saweet. Man we could definitely use your help. I dont know who I speak for, but I know nothing about BMW and that worries me.
    All I can ask is to stay frequent on here we may really need your help. What kind of training have you received? I'm just very interested to learn this engine and platform

    How's it going man! Of course, I'll definitely try my best to stay and keep up with the forum, the cars will be released very soon but training will not be until November-ish but after I get my hands on a few of these, I will be as much of a help as I can. I'm in the same boat as you as being sceptical of the whole bummer thing but with time comes knowledge so I'm looking forward to it.

    For the 3-4 months or so (assuming training doesn't take long) from when customers start receiving their Supra's until there are certifiable technicians to work on them, what would happen if any of them face any issues? go to BMW? (I wish I was joking, but I'm not).

    I was thinking the same. Do I install my dashcam at Toyota or BMW first because they know the electronics better as of this moment.

    In all honesty, everything is a little blurry right now and vague until the car arrives in couple weeks, I will keep you guys posted as much as I can but as of now, I have no answer for that.

    Welcome,
    I would go to a car audio place....likely they will be familiar with BMW and Toyota’s and installing a dash cam is more about the fit and finish. Tapping into a car’s power supply is the easy part...making everything look good is where you need some patience.

    What cam do you have? (I ordered the Blackvue dr900s-2 this morning...only thing I am missing is a car....)

    Make sure they are able to tap the camera power into the switched power, then use the Blackvue battery pack to handle any power when the vehicle is off. BMWs don't tolerate parasitic draw well -- bunch of folks on the M40i forums had issues when trying to tap into constant power for their cams.

    Hi - I have a quick question, I would like to have the bar that extends behind the seats removed, easier for my dog to access the back. From what I have heard its not a structural piece. Anyway when you get some info on this could you post it. Thankyou - Lou

    I think that bar is just part of the trunk cover. Easily comes out. Few videos of people removing it etc.

    The steps in between are really long and possibly unnecessary, I won't know what's actually needed until I get my hands on one, so what I posted is a general step by step. If you get stuck on a particular part let me know and I'll get more in depth with that step for you.
