    Glad that isn’t my dealership. Seriously, with all phone in everyone’s pockets, what are these dealerships thinking??

    Maybe this was the new owner show-boating...I guess if that was the case, who cares, but if this is just employees screwing around, that would really be a shame.

    @BrettS if possible, could you let me know if the HVAC and odometer is configurable to imperial units in Canada?

    Have any buyers heard anything from their dealers on the whole software issue for PDI equipment?

    Dealers in the Chicago region were sent an email last week to make sure all the correct programs were downloaded onto the new scan tool we just had to buy. We were warned that it would take roughly 4 to 5 hours to update. We did it right away, however our Supra has decided to hang around at some rail head so we still haven't got ours in yet.

    Long story short, I placed my deposit I was first in line, the dealership owner was second. Car comes in and now I’m miraculously the second in line. They never said who bought the car but I have a pretty good idea what happened. I guess being the owner has its benefits...

    that actually happened at the first dealer i went to. Dropped the deposit. A month or two later. im told the owner of the dealer is buying the one i was supposed to get and the second one the dealer was supposed to get. Its kinda dirty move by owners honestly.

    In that first Supraboi video the brake lights are blinking, but not the inner turn signal portion on the rear, but on the front the yellow turn signal lights are flashing. That is really odd.

    Front: Turn Signal Flash
    Rear: Brake Engage Flash

    Weird quirk i just noticed
