If your ego bruises easy and inferior comments bother you stay away from the 2.0. Its that simple.

I can tell you that a 2.0 that runs with us gets the most attention because his car looks much better than a stock 3.0.

General Rule -- Buy the car you want. Don't buy a lesser car thinking you can build on it later. Unless you are professional mechanic or automotive engineer, a tinkered with car feels like a tinkered with car.

So if you ever want to race the car, ever think about tuning the car, putting another down pipe on the car etc.. etc.. You want the 3.0. The 3.0 is so much more than just the 3.0 liter engine. It comes with the adaptive suspension (true differnce between chill and d**** head mode), electronic rear diff, 4 piston brakes, etc... And before you ask, yes, all of that would cost much more than 7k to upgrade a 2.0 to compete with a 3.0.

But... if you just want to chill. Have some fun running up and down the highway. Have people look at your car with envy. Etc.. Buy the 2.0. I won't tell.

NOTE: I did drive both 2.0 and 3.0 before deciding on the 3.0 Premium.

In the real world nobody gives a shit if it's a 2.0 or 3.0 and if somebody lets a $50k decision be influenced by a few keyboard warriors, I'd say that's very sad

The best piece of advice I've actually seen in this thread is the opposite....Ignore what others think, test drive both and buy what you want

Congrats and enjoy it! Grab a JB4 and get with @Jesse DaBears for a strong 93 tune that really wakes the B48 up! Plug and play, untraceable and a huge difference over the OEM tune and powerband. Keep us updated on your mods and thoughts of the platform :thumbsup:

There is a reason for different variations of the Supra as with why cars like the Miata and even Audi TT roadster existed. People want different things in a vehicle.

Be sure you are comfortable with the lesser powered 2.0 before committing to it. Drive both to see which one you want to commit to.

Money comes and money goes, but getting a car can tie you to one for a while in some circumstances.

I drove the Audi A5 Sport Back RS5, S5 to be sure I'd be happy with the A5 and not longing for more performance. Hell I drove the A6/S6 and A7/R7 too for comparison before getting the A5.

You have to be happy and not have buyers remorse. Never be concerned with what the other guy/girl has be confident in your choice. I hope you get a Supra that you enjoy everyday of ownership.

Sometime brutal honesty helps. A buddy of mine got a 2.0 and modded it for track use. Ultimately he couldn’t deal with the negative comments from external people and sold it for the 3.0.

I agree, F what people say with their trash comments. But in the end if you don’t have thick skin it will get to you.

Welcome to the club, and ignore all of the 'poo-poo on the 2.0' nonsense! You'll have a blast with the car, and unlike Camaro & Mustang, which proudly broadcast that you didn't get the good one with a V8, there's little to no obviously-visible indicators that the 2.0 is a 'lesser' car. You're going to get Supercar-level attention in your MKV, so be ready!

Don’t get me wrong. I love the 2.0, but I’m very in touch with my feminine side😂

will the brakes on 3.0 direct replacement on the 2.0?or do still need different kind of parts to install?
