    Hello I am a brand new forum member and new owner of the SUPRA. I am a long term Toyota owner and have always wanted a SUPRA since the 80s. I own many cars and brands and actually turned in my leased Jaguar F-Type R for the Supra and initially thought I am crazy for doing this since I did not even test drive the Supra prior to buying her. And wow wow wow is all I can say what a truly fun fun fun car she makes me feel like a little kid again. My dads first Toyota which I just loved was a used 1973 Toyota Celica GT which he purchased in 1975. Even as a little kid I loved the Toyota FJ and trucks which so many years later and many Toyota vehicles as well I feel very fortunate to be a proud owner of one. And here she is:

    Welcome. I too wanted a Supra in the 80s; instead I got a MR2. Then I got a FRS and then a 86. Now I have a “big boy” car. :thumbsup:

    Congrats! The car is beautiful! I’m glad to hear you like the car so much after selling the F-Type. I was really interested in the F-Type until the Supra came out.

    I had a 335i with the JB4 unit. If you have basic mechanical skills, then installation is pretty simple. Burger Tuning is active on a lot of forums and constantly rolling out updates to newer versions of their software. Nonetheless, I found the differences between stock to JB4 night and day.

    One example. When I addeded the AR Design downpipe and Meisterschaft full exhaust, I was fish tailing from stop signs lol. I had to start being more gentle on the acceleration because the JB4 unit had increased the boost. It was smooth, but raw power.

    BMW motors/cars are expensive, but the performance mods are fewer. Fewer mods that yield bigger power/torque numbers. I remember I had an old Acura Integra. Could spend thousands of dollars, and after a tune, probably get 20-30whp.
    With a BMW, you can spend maybe $1500 and get 50-80whp with tune and some performance mods.

    Got her tinted today and side marker lamps darkened out as well. She’s got 400 miles on her and averaging close to 30 mpg just awesome. And the attention on this car is unlike anything I have ever owned lol. Everywhere I go someone is wanting to either talk, take a picture, thumbs up drive by.

    Yes and I actually asked for the launch edition which came in late July. I was in Florida at that time and told them to go ahead and sell her. And then this one cane in last week and they called me right when she came off the truck, I was so busy with work I told them I’ll get there when I can but understand if she sells. On Saturday I drive by the dealership and was amazed she was there. A lot of lookers and thinkers but no takers besides me which I’m super excited I got her. And what color is yours coming in?
