UAE 86's - What have you done so far....

Guys,

Just a quick post to enquire what everyone has done to their 86 so far. I want to see what is available locally. Mine is in for a header back system from Fox today and should have it back tomorrow.

Also have a TRD air filter on order from Amazon.

Tint was done by the dealer (3M 30% all round)

Rest is stock, for now....

I installed a dash camera on the first day I got from the agency. Car is just parked for days now as I still on process of getting my driving license (Only one school in Abu Dhabi and it takes weeks/month before they give you a schedule, 20 hours worth of class spread over 3 months because of unavailability on their side, need wasta maybe)

List on my mind:

Drop in filter
Strut bar
LED bulbs

At the moment its a glorified toy that I can't play with. :-(

I like this thread

Mind if we add costs to it.

I'd be interested to know how much your exhaust was and how much the strut bar was as well - and where we can source locally.

Agreed.

Dash Camera - ITB100HD, shipped from Korea: cost including EMS shipping 215 USD

I was quoted for tint with 2 years warranty 3M at Car Plus Marina Mall for 600AED, might avail over the weekend.

3M Tint from Dealer - AED 900
TRD drop in filter - US$ 60 plus shipping
Fox exhaust header back system - AED 4K

Still the best price i could get. Phoned around cheapest system ordered was a Borla system at AED 4.5K. Wanted a Supersprint but that was AED 9K!!

Update:

3M tint done in Marina Mall Car Plus - 600 AED I removed the rear brake light so they can do a full tint on the back.

Congrats. Because mine was done by the dealer I got to see the tint with both the third light cut out and now covered. Looks much better if the rear brake light is removed and the whole window is tinted.

Btw the new exhaust sounds awesome. Stock is just too quiet.

Did you ask the dealer if the header back would void the warranty? Are the secondary catalytic converters still there?

That's pricey. Any HP gain? Share a video if you can for how it sounds.

I heard the TRD dual cat back is going for slightly less than 4K. And sounds great in this video

Sorry to go off topic - you can get the TRD for just over a 1100USD+ shipping + import duty but there is no way Toyota UAE will offer the cat back for that price (if they offer it at all).

Definitely looks better than having a tint cutout for the center brake lights. I removed the lights myself (2 minute DIY) before bringing it to the tint installer.

I did not ask the dealer since it would make no difference if the exhaust after the header is changed. This conversation will be had if the need arises. For any warranty work that has nothing to do with the exhasut this should not be a problem. Everything is changed after the maf sensor and not before. That is why I will not change out the headers.

Second cat is gone but replaced by HF cat.

After adding about 150 km to the car the engine response has improved a lot. Rev matching a lot easier now.

Lovin the sound. Should have come like this stock.

They will offer it but my guess is about AED 7K. Can't see them doing it for less than that.

The thing is that they tend to be very sneaky by not saying anything about voiding a modified car warranty as long as they are receiving money from the service intervals. However, when there is an issue that is covered by warranty they would start haggling. Anyways, enjoy it and I hope you would never face any issue.
