    It's been just over a week I got my Supra and just getting my feet wet. ;)

    I hope to see you sometime soon and like to know what you did to your Supra.

    Do you drive through Cliffside Park? I've seen a white Supra here couple of times (by the PD) but obviously dunno if that's you.

    That's shitty about the flat. Did you use the goo provided by Toyota or did you buy some repair kit? I bought a tire repair kit from amazon in anticipation of getting a flat since I didn't want to use the goo because it apparently ruins tpms[?]

    I just plugged it with kit. thankfully, I found out at home. The tire deflated over night and i found out just as i got in the car where there was warning. I agree with you on using that kit. unless it's an absolute emergency, I'd avoid it since it's going to make a mess inside of the tire. my only concern is when i go to track in few weeks, this might be weakest point.

    Blows but it's in a good spot to fix it. I've never had problems with tires holding pressure after plugging it up before but also haven't tested them on the track so I dunno.

    Good thing you had a jack.. I'd need to snag one from the gf or something because why would Toyota include it.

    on the jack... I'd blame germans on this one. ;) because my BMWs did not have it as well.. but then they were equipped /w run-flats. Also, I'm not sure about other toyota but jack point is distinctively same as BMW where it has plastic piece that BMW jack adaptor might be helpful..

    I blame both I guess. My gf's X1 has a jack so did my mini. Both also had run flats, go figure. Anyways, don't wanna high jack your thread with flat tire talk lol
