    Exactly!! :rofl: Moto-san mentioned on his FB post that Toyota's target is to attract new buyers and not previous Toyota owners. The Who and pinball machines are def not part of the millennials and generation z groups.

    Ford did one (and even better then this one) for the Fiesta but this was when arcade games and pinball machines still existed.

    Probably not. The fresh BOV sounds will remain with the MKIV.

    Blow-off valve
    A blow-off valve is not used in current models. Pressure peaks, caused by sudden load shedding due to the inertia of the turbine of the exhaust turbocharger, can be avoided by careful tuning of the Digital Motor Electronics software. With foresighted charging pressure control, pressure peaks can be predicted and reduced by quick adjustment of the electrically-adjustable wastegate valve. Assisted by a delayed load control of the Valvetronic (in the minimum lift direction) or the throttle valve (in the closed direction), the remaining charge air which is produced can be routed to the exhaust emission system via the engine. This form of control thus prevents the exhaust turbocharger shaft from being exposed to excessive torsional stress due to high pressure peaks.

    I'd say so! The marketing blitz is in full steam! I just got hit with this on Facebook but I can't find it on YouTube or anywhere else. Hate to post a FB link here but it's all I got right now...

    We should just call this one, Toyota fights back at the Internet. Its captioned with...

    "Toyota knows that sometimes you just need to feel it instead of listening to the opinions of others" lol

    It could be they just didn't even know about it till the internet pointed it out lol. Doubt they have anyone working in marketing still who was there in the 80s.

    We need to bring back the Toyota jump!

    I bet that spokesperson wasn't even born yet when the MR2 commercial aired. :rofl:

    There was a campaign that Toyota did on FB that was hilarious. They asked for people to upload images of them with their Toyota doing the jump.

    "Gravity & Resonance" add is on YouTube now.



    Kinda funny the last scene they chose to put in the add is the drivers foot pressing the gas pedal next to just one, obviously automatic brake pedal lol
