    Toyota has been bringing the red Supra to various auto shows worldwide, and car events too. The 1st actual previewed, driven by Toyota President & CEO Akio Toyoda was also red.

    Usually, racing is synonymous with red.

    Anyone know what the fuel tank capacity is on the 3.0 A90 Supra? I hope it's close to 17-18 gallons.

    The fuel tanks are pretty small these days...

    Yeah and it shouldn't come as a surprise that it's the same size as the Z4 and M2 Comp.

    Dam! not too happy about that. I like road tripping in cars like this. A 300-350 mile range isn't exciting.. I'm looking at this A90 against a used LC500 as my upgrade :hmm:

    The EU Supra looks so much cleaner without the side markers. @Guff, are the ones on the US model easily removable? I recall some people saying that they are just stickers, not sure if they were joking or not.

    I'm sure it would be easy to swap them out but annoyingly you're still going to have the cutout..I dislike them as well, to the point where I would consider a bumper swap to get rid of them altogether.

    Most likely it will be a plastic reflector as most all BMW's. You can remove them and some AFT co. will produce color matched inserts.

    The front reflectors were my first “mod” many years ago.

    Tools needed: heat gun & replacement reflector

    Procedure:
    1). Heat reflector and remove it from inside of the wheel-well

    2). Stick new, non-orange reflector in its place

    3). Enjoy the new look

    They're plastic reflectors inserted into a notch in the bumper, just like how most reflectors are. I'm sure they're not super hard to remove, but they're def not stickers as far as I can tell.
