    Oh really? To be honest, I've never properly looked into them, doesn't surprise me though, is it a decent thing to drive when it does work? Always struck me as one of the best all rounders you can get.

    Supra just ticks so many boxes for me, fast, reliable, comfy, easy to work on, relatively cheap to run, for what i use mine for i`m struggling to find another car in the price bracket tbh.

    Its about what you like... If you like one brand and blend of tea then you stick with it despite other people saying there are "better" brands/blends on the market, yeah you may dabble from time to time but at the end of the day you end up going to the same brand you started with.
    Same thing with cars...

    If you like a particular blend of features (looks, power, blah, blah) then you will stick with it.
    Just because there are "better" cars on the market does not mean someone or you will like that "blend" of car for long or ever.

    I personally think the GTR is soulless, heavy and boring to drive, the power is fun but then it gets old real quick. I like raw fast cars.
    The Supra is older and therefore more raw and hard to drive quickly and gives you much better sense of achievement when driving quickly.

    My Track Supra is the rawest car I have ever driven and I love it, hell it does not even have a brake servo... (that's lots of fun on circuits with cold brakes).

    Alex_gt has now removed his post, shame, I was hoping for some sort of witty come back to my rebuttal, I'm just glad I managed to quote it beforehand

    Anyways, I was hoping someone would post that is a new buyer that's purchased a TT6 at their new inflated prices, I'm not saying they shouldn't buy one, I'm just interested to know where this demand is coming from, most who have replied bought their cars in the days when (bar singles) all Supras were mainly going for less than £10k

    I think that may have been a mod. I believe his language and demeanour is a constant sore point on the forum with members and mods alike.

    Yeah, but is yours doesn't even have the engine in its original place , my question to you would be, would you buy it again if you were buying a standard car for nigh on £20k?

    Depends on what you use the car for really.

    I have an amazing company car with 390bhp and 768nm torque and 4wd. Plenty of power and so nice and refined with all the mod cons. It's amazing and perfect for daily use.

    I contrast that to the supra and I often come out feeling knackered after a run in the supra for all the right reasons. Your senses are alive, you're often driving on the edge, the sound and harshness of boost is epic and the whole experience is exhilarating for not a great deal of outlay in cost.

    They are chalk and cheese. For every day use I would choose the BMW or another similar model every time. BUT for all out thrills and a true mental and unmatchable driving experience it's the Supra.

    One thing I will never get , the current price an R34 GTR commands , WTF , 70K

    Even as a die hard Supra fan, even if the car had all the bells and whistles , not a chance I would pay it! Crazy!

    Within Ireland , VRT tax commanded on a new car or anything with a bit of power ; 1990's Jap car makes sense for performance , build quality, Condition 2nd hand JDM cars for a reasonably affordable price

    New M5, GTR RS6 here starts at 130K to 180K with some extra's, annual Motortax 2100

    New M4 ex-extras 120K
