    IMO the only MKV's I could see being very valuable in the future would be the LE cars with very low plaque #s. Excluding the owner of the first LE car, I would guess numbers 2 - 11 could fetch a real pretty penny. Just a guess anyway.

    Lol just the ones paying the 10k+ markups. But, beauty and value is subjective.

    Haters that can't afford a base Corolla: Dude nice BWM. No 2J? No thanks dude. Toyota totally ruined this car.

    FF9 Release: Yo, pop the hood! POP THE HOOD! *Reveals crazy B58 build*

    Same haters that can't afford a base Corolla: DUDE I told you this car was going to be nasty! Guaranteed will be destroying supercars! Oh man nice job Toyota. I would totally pay over MSRP for these dude. Oh man that's exactly how I would build my MKV Supra!

    Considering that #2 was in California and the dealer was asking for a $50k markup, I would be surprised if it's ever worth what that person paid for it. As the VINs show, the actual LE #s seem to have been assigned somewhat randomly and not necessarily in the order in which the cars were produced / arrived in the states / were sold, so I'm not sure why anyone would care what # their LE is unless it's a "cool" number (like 1~10, 666, 777, 1000, 1500, etc.); even then I don't think that would really justify an increase in value in the future if the buyer actually understood how the LE #s 2~1,500 were assigned.

    No disrespect, but I think Tada-san, per his Japanese culture, bowed down to everything BMW asked, which I guess is totally understandable considering everything. Therefore, I think Toyota had/has absolutely no control over the Magna facility to have them build things in incremental order. Besides the random VIN's we kept on seeing non-LE editions being delivered ahead of time. Total speculation, but I do see a complete lack of organization and lack of communication between BMW & Toyota.
    So, I completely agree none of the LE's will add value down the line. Signature can be replicated, nothing special. LE number, unless cross-checked with BMW/Toyota upon selling can also be replicated with determined parties and I'm sure aftermarket companies can easily add colored door trims and blacked out wheels...

    Toyota seems like the one keeping the partnership together

    what I'm curious is now that Brian O' Connor is not in F&F films (Rest in Peace Paul Walker.) WHO would drive the supra? Han is dead, Giselle is dead, Dom drives muscle, Luke drives haulers, Mia is not in the movie anymore, so would they introduce a new character or would someone live up to Brian's legend?
