Hi All
Just joined the club.I've ordered a black, manual transmission one with leather seats.
Expected delivery 1st Sep.


I can't wait



Thanks to all the posters on here with the background and advice that helped my choice.
I had 3 test drives - 2 manual and 1 auto.


The GT86 is just a bit smaller that my Civic Type R, and easily fits in my garage as I found out on test drive 2.

Nice! Bet you can't wait and less than a month to go too!


I'm waiting for next spring to give me a chance to save lots of pennies and want to see what the TRD comes in at.

The Bedford dealer let me and the wife take their GT86 for couple hours!

No way, my dealer wouldn't allow me to test drive it without him, I was guna bring my cousin along as he's interested in getting the BRZ but I didn't in the end, otherwise someone would have had to get squash in the back

To be fair I had been in contact with my dealer since November. They had my home address and had been sending of stuff. Also I had put a deposit down so they might have had my details...

Garage test
The dealer came with me and looked a bit sheepish as I drove slowly into the garage - he didn't believe it was a smaller car than my Type R (FN2).

I took my CDs out on a drive too to check out the standard sound system - more than adequate.


Like the plate 'GT86Owner' !

Probably a good move to get to know the dealer and then take your wife with you for a test drive in what is essentially a 2 seater. Lee would never fit in the back.

Yes exactly, I didnt want the wife to have to sit in the back!

I think they let us take it because they felt bad that I ordered it on the 2nd December and not getting it until sept.....


I have to say Steven Eagell Toyota have been pretty good of recent, but a huge lack of info leading up to it.
