    While we're on topic with Kate, has anyone noticed that there hasn't been any babes posing next to the cars at US autoshows? :(

    Is that bar across the back of the seats used for seat belt harnesses?

    They used to have some real nice dresses too, but now they're either wearing suits or uniforms

    100% agree with ya!...Too many tools make judgement and criticize the car before they actually see it in real life, understand facts about manufacturing, why Toyota and BMW did certain things, how it's built to be aftermarket ready with the current fake air ducts, but not realizing that these are conventional (removable)...Glad to hear someone knowledgeable that doesn't just want to whinge like a muppet!
    AND i 100% agree with the need for a manual!!

    Ok, just got back from seeing the car and first impressions are good. I couldn't sit in it despite how much I tried to bribe security ($5), but from what I could see the interior looked pretty tight. But again, I wasn't in it.

    The car is just about the size of my old BRZ, but flatter and wider. I felt it could had been a little lower, but stock ride height is perfect for me. I have a new love for the front bumper, and originally didn't like it. Love the headlights and the rear is amazing. How those rear lights stick out is unreal, I've never seen anything like that in person. I don't know if I like the white outlining around the Supra badge, but it's distinctive.

    What I didn't like, was the chrome Toyota badges (Easy fix). And I thought the "GR" badge was a little out of place where it is, so I may remove mine all together (Much Love Gazoo). Also, the side panel on the door which makes that fake opening, looks like a tacked on afterthought. I think it's supposed to continue the flow of the buttress look from the rear quarter panels, but it gets broken by the panel gap from that piece. They should had just integrated that piece into the door as one, but I'm not a design specialist.

    This car looks good. I personally think anyone saying it looks meh or like a Z4, has never seen it in person. Pass by them on the streets and I bet that song will change. Even my wife said this in a not too dark blue would be killer. I think the real surprise is seeing a car like this being a Toyota, it's been a while.

    I'm not going to post all my pics, b/c I think we've got enough.

    Yeah, your ass is on the floor once you sit in. Also, everyone over 5'10"ish hits their head on the roof getting in lol. I think the door opening is just a little smaller than other cars and so it'll skim the old noggin on ingress. Just gotta get used to that though.
