I'm selling my GT86.

Only because I'm buying a 2017 GT86.

There is nothing persae wrong with my current 86, save that it has had one minor accident and numerous niggles and issues with getting the dealership to fix them, but I just wanted a fresh one.

Won't get it till August. :(  Long wait.

As I got a bonus and pay rise in work this year the new car cost (deposit + slight rise monthly payments) is offset completely by that :)

Going for a Pro to get the wing, but also looking forward to the half leather seats and... the Track mode button.

I think it's a real credit to the car when even existing owners upgrade to the new model or return to buy a 2nd/3rd of the original. Would be interesting to hear your views come September when you're settled in.

The more important question though... what colour?  :D

The fastest colour of course.  Red.

Good to hear someone liking the 86 so much to replace with the new version. It will be good to get the comparisions. Wonder if the audio is any better

I doubt it.  I just hope the cabin rattles are better.  The worst is when the car is in a rattly mood on a particular day and so you put the HiFi on to drown it out and ... the door cards start buzzing with the bass.

I'm thinking this time I will go straight ahead and get the boot wired for a bass bin.

Congratulations on the bonus and pay rise and glad you are spending it on a Toyota. Why not consider it's twin , the BRZ this time?

I bet the rattles are still there, unless they have lined the backs of the plastic panels with foam. I just ended up fixing them myself on mine :)
