Are the pics showing up? I've not used Picasa in forever, and now it's become Google suckage.

Lol, only in Europe do they call the car "GT-86"

In Japan, and now North America, it's known as the "Toyota 86".

I feel bad for saying this, but I do laugh at all the mis-informed people on here that slap on the "GT-86" badge on their cars and think it's JDM... (My BIGGEST pet peeve)

On that note, congrats with your purchase!!!

Thanks! I know white was not the most popular around here, but I think it's the best if you are not into look-at-me. I think it's soo-poib! I'm considering lowering just a tad, and a real low-key lip if there is such a thing.

Edit: To be honest, I do like the side profile of the new front end more than the FR-S.

I agree with you, white is the color I would go with as well

Dealerships aren't interested in the cars. They figure is 3 years old you might be tired of it so they'll replace with a new one for you because you want the new one so bad. I don't like that little round badge either WTF didn't even know they were doing that. Its awful. The only thing at all this car need in change was power boost. It didn't need refinement or facia change, it needed a power boost. Maybe next gen I guess.

I'd buy it again if it had more power, but I'd probably have to get an auto, as my knee is getting worse and traffic is getting worse. I would not buy it the way it stands with an auto

I'm of the opinion that... if you think the car is in dire need of more power, you're probably driving it wrong.

The 86 does feel like it has more HP and torque, how many I don't know. Any third-party dyno runs out there? It feels like an OFT-tuned FR-S right off the lot.

Love the tail lights on the 2017 models. Congrats!

BTW white is obviously the best color.

Congrats! White works really well. I would imagine that black works well too.

I know there was some speculation about the white. As far as I can tell, the 86 "Halo" is the same as the '13 "Whiteout". Dealer said there have been some improvements to the paint as well. Time will tell.

IMHO the white color shows off the lines of the car the best .....
