Local dealership has had one ever since they were first made available. No takers yet. I always thought this car would look nice in yellow but I dunno. Looks...OK but I agree, tough sell.

If you were referring to that upper "mouth guard" piece then I'm with you as well. I noticed all the photos of the car that I liked was when this wasn't as noticeable.

The lack of updates from Toyota on the 86 is frigging annoying. Another conspiracy theory, they're holding off on releasing any info in order to get rid of as many remaining FRSs they can.
