    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.

    That bar is definitely structural. You can run without but its there for a reason.

    What are the chances of my warranty being voided if I bring in the car for service and it has bolt-on mods? (intercooler, tune, suspension exhaust... stuff like that)

    Different parts will void the various warranties for power train, suspension, etc.

    You mentioned that each dealer will have 1 supra tech. I assume it's reasonable that you meant "at least" and it's likely many techs at each dealer will be certified in the new hotness for fun/personal growth/redundancy?

    EDIT: Are a decent chunk of techs doing this or is it in the minority? Would hate to have 3-4 supras on the lot waiting on 1 tech

    For now at least 1, I'm sure more will come along the way, I'd hate to have multiple cars waiting as well for one guy.

    im surprised that Toyota didn't just make a deal with BMW to service this car at their stealership.
