    Thanks! I believe you get what you pay for with mods. The Ohlins and so very good.

    Hi Annie, it's been great meeting you. I'm very proud of Lois and want to keep here stock. I'm just a little sad that her first owner wasn't so particular about her welfare. Is cherrybomb your cars name or just your forum name?
    I've been so lucky to meet great people through being an 86 owner. One of the joys of owning her is to meet people who are just as passionate as I am. Or crazy! That's in canny us both having a Yaris before. People couldn't believe the jump I'd made but also didn't realise this grey haired 54 year old is a petrol head. Enjoy your red baby Annie. Hope to see you at the next meet. Hope you encounter NO speeding tickets on your travels. X Diane

    I understand about wanting your car sorted out the way you want before meeting up, but honestly, I don't think anyone will look down their noses at you for driving a stock car. And if they do, that's their problem. My car has no mods, yet I am very proud to drive it and show it off. But that's just me. Of course, after driving a Yaris for 18 years, this thing feels like a Ferrari to me! I do call it my poor man's Ferrari haha. And I think even if it were a bucket of rust, I'd be happy.

    NHS? Oh dear. You both have my sympathy lol. I'm sure it's not easy. Florida will be a lovely retreat and getaway, hopefully. America is a great place, aside from the current political nonsense. If you haven't been there before, then being outgoing, you will love it; though I may be biased in my opinion, being American myself

    Nope, not been to any yet. There's a Facebook group for GT86 owners in Scotland, and there's been a fair number of meet ups arranged, a couple of which I was intending to go to, though other commitments just got in the way (my Wife and I work in the NHS so shifts can be unpredictable), and in a pretty daft way there's a couple of things I want done to the car before I start going to meets... though that's a lame excuse as loads of people go to these meets with their cars completely stock! Definitely not a recluse, I love meeting new people Fellow GT86 owners even moreso! I've got a small list of things I want sorted/want to do to my car, though the whole family is going to FL for 3 weeks in May, so all my funds are going into that just now haha.

    Same! I had wanted one for years. The opportunity presented itself, I seen it pop up for sale, had a quick test drive during my lunch break from work. The seats/seating position, the sound, the handling, the notchy gearbox, the looks... I was sold. They do have their quirks or small flaws here and there, but so do all cars that are designed from the ground up like this one, and it just makes them all the more interesting. They always turn heads too.

    I've never actually been to any meet ups yet, though I do plan to eventually! Would be great to finally put some faces to the names of the peeps on here

    Haha, indeed we should! The seats were a pretty unique feature when I first looked at the car. From what I was told from the salesman, it's something that needs to be 'requested'. The previous owner of my car was actually getting another GT86, and he had to ask for the same leather seats for his new one aswell. Seemingly full leather seats like these are a rare thing for these cars!
