Test drive all done, i gave it a good seeing to. Being a drifter i wanted to make sure it was capable and i con confirm yes it is. Yes the power is weak below certain revs but who cars. The cabin and trim are fine apart form the wanna be carbon fibre part.

So impressed with the throw of the gearbox its so minimal. I test drove a black one with silver sticker pack but also saw a Grey auto:-

Test drove a black Auto today with silver decals and no GT86 badgeLooks nice in black but still want my red auto with no decals.

The automatic was miles better than I'd expected and the gear changes are a lot quicker than a normal auto if not as quick as a VWDSG gearbox. I really cant wait now!

So i test drove another one today which helped me cement my decision. It was a Silver manual with Black decals:-













What concerned me was on both the cars they had there, these openings were left uncovered:-








I'm guessing its for Mudflaps.


They also had a Red Automatic there:-





I remembered to test the stereo as well and if you fiddle with settings the sound actually comes out pretty nice.

Red looks GREAT!! I've sat in that actual red car, you were at Steven Eagells in St Albans.

The openings on the rear wheel arch have been on all the GT86's i've seen and like you I think they're for mudflaps. Thought there may have been a blanking clip though.
