You're in for a surprise.

Haven't you noticed over the years car manufacturers have been trying so hard to make aftermarket headunits not fit readily. I think this is their grail solution.

Sadly we're under an embargo. But the rear is really nice.

I'm not surprised. It's probably one of those "one unit for each dealer at most two" type of deal.

I'm gonna throw another pic out there for design comparison. Also two seater with blacked out A pillars.



Maybe this wheelbase is a tad too long. Seems like the best proportion is still Mk3.

Idk. But I think the US is getting around 3,000 cars.

The side reminds me a lot of the 2000GT.

I think a lot of people may feel the same way about the A90.

IMO, on the new car.

Front: Ok
3/4 Front: meh, the BMW mirrors are really killing it.
Side: Not bad.
3/4 Rear: Hot
Rear: F*ck Hot

The same design profile also influenced the design of the 86, making the Supra look like a copy of the 86 even more. People are calling it things like a paddleshift BRZ, luxury FR-S, 86 with a better engine, etc.
