Ugh, body kit looks horrible. They can have it.

Looks like they didn't even try to hide the fact these are just bulbous plastic trim pieces taped on.

More weight, more ugly, more money. Where do I sign up?

The body kit would look good if they were actually new body panels instead of that ugly glued on look.

Figure the release series 1.0 FR-S will be around $28K.....
It better have push start and those racing seats.....hehe!
So the US will get the quad exhaust, the coilovers, the sway bars, the bucket seats and the interior mods...

I think the quad exhaust just makes that ass look all sorts of Juicy. I'm for it if i can find a better aftermarket company to purchase from. I like the TRD bumper more than anything. If ARK Performance puts out a Quad... game over!

I love how you guys bitch and moan that you get screwed over when it comes to cars....

How about the fact that you can get a porsche 911 for about $100K US brand new yet in Australia the equivalent car would cost $230K US.

You guys get such good prices on some amazing cars compared to us Aussies, not to mention the mustangs, corvettes, camaros etc

As cool as it may be, still way too much. I kind of don't care for the 'super aggressive' look for a car that's still 200hp, unless they S/C it and all that too.

except the type Rs received better engines.

power wise, this TRD is the same as the base models.

only the brakes/suspension/wheels are functional on this car. everything else is there for looks.

i'll even say that the TRD model is overpriced but that's not the point of this thread.

what the EFF!!!!!!!!!!!!?

Stupid scion! I would've gladly taken this over my BRZ! I wonder if any of those TRD parts have been dyno'd. HP gains perhaps.....only time will tell.

I heard from a Toyota rep at Goodwood there will be only 86 TRD versions to order. Besides 40k for a car where the body kit doesn't 100% match the color of the rest of the car is a total rip off!

I hope they make a TRD "club sport" version - something with a little more than the JDM RC version.

I'd rather the GTS version that the Aussies get not sure why people like this so much but not the nur/gts version :S

A GT86 With the GTS bodykit, the black TRD wheels off this car, TRD monoblocks and a custom full exhaust system would be a great car, but it puts you into BMW/Porsche price territory
