After ages of waiting,I finally can introduce myself as a proud owner of a brand new Toyota 86.
I have just taken delivery of my Crystal White Pearl High spec manual.

So, I would like take this opportunity to introduce myself and request any tips,hints from you experienced owners to keep my car in tip top condition.

I have no major plans to modify her as I think she's stunning as she is but if there are any group buys on subtle cosmetic items I would appreciate any related info.

I'm based in Durban and If there are any guys getting together I would love to be involved. Thanks guys...

Thanks Freedom.

I'm actually looking for the GT86 badge that fits onto the boot just below the number plate.

Congrats on the superb choice of everyday vehicle! Did you try eBay? or maybe with Ryan, as they do groupbuys

Try eBay UK - that's where I got mine.
eg: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-To...item3cd78b339c

Congrats!

I was down in durbs with mine last week.
It's so much more fun.

unlike my other cars, the 86 doesnt gain much in power with the altitude difference but picks up alot more torque which just makes it so great.

I must admit, I forgot about the extra torque and while trying to do a 180 degree turn i added too much power and ended up doing a 360...

Welcome Desi! Hope you have many happy miles with your 86
You made an awesome choice and I love the colour

@Diesel, you're so right...the car is SO much of fun in DBN...but hey, its still quite awesome up here in Gauteng :-) I'm sure the 360 looked awesome...lol
