    My first Supra! (sort of)

    After all my years on the forum, all the posts Ive never actually owned a Supra (apart from a brief flirt with an NA auto, but I won't call it ownership lol) Well now I do.

    Spotted one on Jurgens Facesnake page and it was pretty much everything that I wanted, black, VVTI, auto, utterly and completely bone stock down to the exhaust, in fact the only mod is a JDM head unit, so I went halves with my brother and off we went to Newcastle. Jurgen and the boys changed some bits like a new rad and engine mounts, discs all round.

    Nice extras like 17s, big brakes, aero lip, Super Sport mats, boot blind, LSD. No gash bov's, no induction kits, just a well looked after car as it left the factory.

    No plans other than maybe a gearbox oil cooler, just to cosset and pamper it

    Great investment if you plan on keeping it as stock as it is currently

    That is lovely mate. A really clean example, so nice to see. In re saleable black, so I see why you've got it as an investment. All in all a really good buy.

    And in answer to adams green facelift aero, you will have better luck bumming megan fox before he sells (drift_bear)
    So nice to see a fantastic dark green aero with Recaro seats on a such a nice day. Whoever owns it should be proud. It's a stunner! (Delboy52)

    Thanks all. Im really happy with it Need a couple of things but nothing too bad.
    Surprised how quiet it is, the engine is like a Swiss watch and you can't hear any exhaust noise when you're driving, lovely lol

    Giving the old girl a look over, sorting out a to do list. Always thought it was a little flat, but just assumed it was the stock-ness of it, turns out it was in TTC mode.



    So set everything back to standard, expecting no second turbo, and there was! So thats one job off the list.




    Documentation pointed out that the cam belt needed doing so I thought Id have a look at it, and found this




    Bingo!! So now my job list consist of diff oil, and thats it
