I wanted to create an open thread of miscellaneous things you did on or to your Supra today.

I’ll go first. Today I learned if you hold down the unlock bottom the driver and passenger windows will roll all the way down. Holding the lock will roll up and fold the mirrors!
I tried to set up the garage opener and failed.

Mine failed a few times so I just kept repeating the step and it eventually worked.

Today I let an installer finish up ceramic coating my Supra and then got freaked the fuck out when my backup sensors detected my driveway as an obsticle and slammed on the brakes...

Where does it say how to do it? I searched for some time and didn’t see any steps and I’m pretty sure I did the actual garage motor right...

You were reversing the vehicle with all the doors shut and it automatically applied the brakes?

I was using the service manual. It's under universal remote or something like that.

I drove to work then back home. Also, my neighbor with a nice old Z is apparently now following me on IG

So there is a setting for this - it is off by default.

My thought process was that it was probably never going to activate but that it might save me from doing something boneheaded one day. The issue with my driveway is that its only 3-4 feet long (townhouse) and it's kinda steep on one end - under normal use I never actually go up the steep part - there was no way going up this part was going to hurt the car at all. The car did try to warn me a lot & it was beeping, highlighting the area that it thought I was going to hit (on the backup cam), and then the beep became a solid tone before the braking.

With the headlights, I have no trouble seeing at nightdd, unlike in my 86. I have an astigmatism, so I have trouble at night usually, but these are bright enough, and aim far enough ahead that I have no issues.
