The GT86 TRD of the North
 
Hello

As the title suggest I live in the North, more specific Norway, a small country in the North part of Europe.

Work: Electrical Technician Officer at a PSV, we are mostly in the North Sea, but I have also been working along the whole coast of Norway, the Barents sea, and at Marocco in the North Atlantic.

When I found out that this was the car for me: When saw the FT86II back in late 2009 early 2010, I knew this was the car I wanted to get one day. So on the 10th of January 2014, I ordered my GT86 TRD, and on the 11th of April I finally got my dream car! :-D

Tracks & laptimes:
Norway: Rudskogen raceway, 1min 58sec I like to go sideways...
Norway: Vċlerbanen, it was raining really hard, forgot to take lap times.
Germany: Nürburgring, about 10min, I didn't drive that hard.

Roadtrips with fellow 86/BRZ owners: Back in 2014, we in the Norwegian ft86 Club, 3 GT86 and a BRZ. Took an Roadtrip from Norway to Nürburgring, then to Switzerland where we met up with Killerbee from this forum, and hit the Swiss alps, before we went a little tour to north Italy and back again!

Nice! Do you or anyone know if I can still buy those TRD rims from Toyota?

AVodka14 04-14-2014 10:55 PM

Nice! Congrats! I have really always liked that blue and the pearl white. Those plus Raven are the best 3 color options IMO. Enjoy the ride!

You probably can, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't :) Best way to find out is to ask your local dealer :)

Cheers

Nice to see a TRD model in Norway.

Sounds like yours is similar to the TRD model we get here but without the TRD brakes.

Looks great with black wheels on the blue.

Yeah, the problem with the break kit, is that it cost about a whopping 17k USD, here in Norway.. so I didn't get em.

But if I feel the need to upgrade the brakes I will probably import them myself from Japan or get brembo.

No I bought the Seibon Carbon hood from a place called BadAssParts Norway, but Toyota put it on for free :)
