Hi guys

Well its been a long wait, having wanted a Supra for the past 11 years since my Dad picked up his 1998 Supra RZ-S. Finally I reached the stage to own, source and pick up this 2002 Supra RZ-S Tiptronic. It is registered in May 2002 and I have been told its one of the last 103 built in Japan. Few options that came with this particular car are the leather seats front and back as well as the active front spoiler. Very happy with the car and looking forward to many miles with it ! I'm based in the Poole/Bournemouth area and aim to get down to some meets very soon and meet fellow members ! :)

Daniel

Very nice :) Now just leave it alone, no spoilers or kits, will be worth more in the long term ;)

Welcome Daniel.

Are those factory decals down the side of the car? I know they did some. Never seen those ones before though.

Hi mwilkinson - I'm not sure myself to be honest ! They were on the car when it arrived from Japan, I've never seen these vinyls on another supra before myself either :) Anyone got any ideas ?

Thank you I had the same opinion with the wheels ! - I'm looking to get a set of 18's for it soon (possibly AXE-EX10's), but will keep the standard 16's for originality (apart from the wheels I am going to keep the car as stock as much as possible for now).

Thanks ! Indeed that is the plan, I'm going to get a set of wheels for it, but will be keeping the 16's for originality. Other than that not really planning on much else to change for now.

It seems they are :-)
While searching for supra bike racks came across all the oem options, and 'your' car was there 205030

I think it could do with the black lip on the bumper spraying white, and replacing the stock 16's replacing with some stock 17's. :) Otherwise she is perfect :cool:

Ah brilliant Kitch many thanks for this ! - Yeh its interesting I didn't get the 17 inch wheel option on mine, as my Dad had them on his 1998 RZ-S. I thought it was strange they didn't produce a front splitter option to balance out the side skirts and rear spats, but then realized this was probably to allow for the active front spoiler that deploys below the bumper ! :)

I did think this myself to balance out the sideskirt/front bumper line ! I definitely want to change the wheels but will keep the 16's as backup wheels/original spec :)

I had the same problem with mine, but I removed the skirts instead. Whatever you intend to do, I would recommend getting the skirts off and checking the sills underneath. The paint often rubs through under the skirt and causes rust. Also make sure the skirts haven't rubbed the paint off the bottom edge of the doors :)
