So it`s not BMW`s off the shelf "adaptive suspension", since that has no height adjustment that I know of? Also that could help explain the low CoG.

That's a nice feature. I hope KW builds some upgrade suspension that supports this

I do recall reading that the Z4's M sport suspension is active as well and lowered 10mm.
It`s lowered 10mm compared to the non-adaptive version, but it has no ride height change itself. Probably similar for the Supra.

I believe this is what it will be as well. These are adaptive dampers with standard springs, not air suspension. The 7mm lower is compared to the basic suspension option I believe.

The first video in the second post in the "Reviews are in for 2020 Supra MKV preproduction car. " about 9:50 in talks about it lowering itself 7mm when required

@A70TTR ... so here are my thoughts.

Toyota is opening up the order banks this October to really gauge initial interest to justify to higher ups that they should do other variants of the car? I.e manual, race version etc.

What are your thoughts in opening up the order banks prior to even releasing the entire spec sheet.

@A70TTR - Not sure if you can even speak to this, But I've seen consistent reviews pertaining to the lack of/or disappointment in the Brake setup for the Supra. Is this something Toyota will assess and potentially adjust? Or are we stuck with what we've seen so far?

Not sure if you follow tech closely, but this is becoming more common as of late, and while it's annoying companies have found that if enough hype exists they can't get away with it.

That said, I'm not sure that really applies here or what their strategy is.

It was probably due to all the journalists beating the hell out of the car back to back. If I was the ream on site, I'd be changing pads after a few runs.

If there was genuine issues however, then it should be addressed (unlikely due to all the track testing on the 'Ring).
