Was driving behind a silver 86 on the N1 South before Marlboro this morning. Anyone here?

Nope, not I. I have silver and was heading south but nowhere near Marlboro. I hardly ever see another 86 on the roads

Same here, I was surprised when this one didn't even wave back.

I think I have seen the same one driving down Sylvia's Pass in the morning - the driver does not wave...

Silver Standard model?

In the presence of other 86's, his car isn't as exclusive... Or he has chronic piles and in that case definitely bought the wrong kind of car! LOL!

Same as when I drive my Mini's - we always acknowledge the others - no matter how tired they look.

Haha, no it was the same with the ST's when there weren't as many around - everybody was friendly and waving at each other.

I reckon we'll be exclusive for a long time - limited stock and most will be written off sadly by joy riders attempting to drift. Once watched a youngster pushing a Lumina - still couldn't get it to slide despite severe provocation. The 86 isn't as forgiving... My traction control stays on!

Yep, 800 for 2012 and 58/month after that.

How is it possible to NOT get a Lumina sideways? My 86 has forgiven me on a couple of occasions but then I'm not expecting it to handle like a FWD car so I guess that's the secret.

I love scaring my passenger(s) in an underground parking lot - turn in quickly and kick the throttle on a smooth concrete surface... I think the traction control noises are more frightening than the weight transfer.

I used to use the handbrake on my RXI to do the same - 45 degrees sideways at least between concrete pillars... The Mini is a whole other ballgame altogether... ))

Anyone seen any Blue High Spec manuals around??? My dealer told me this spec was extremely rare and they were only like 3 in SA?
