Read her a bunch of supra reviews then had to break the news that she'll be replaced by one in a couple years.

Hilarious seeing so many people surprised by overwhelmingly positive reviews, I was never in doubt.

Yeah, I'd bet after someone works out how to swap a manual gearbox into the Supra it'll be a good car

Personally, it looks like a great car but if I wanted a 2 seat sports car I'd be looking at a Mustang GT Fastback. with the track package and save over 10 grand to boot. The Supra looks like a teenagers car and will not age well in my opinion.

I don’t know, I’m not sure Mustangs are any cooler. Despite the awful sounding 4-cyl, I’d probably go 718 Cayman around that price point for a 2-seater, or, better yet, a certified preowned 981.

I'm a fan of the Supra, but it's really tragic that there's no manual. Also I feel like we're incredibly spoiled with the E82. I'm planning on keeping my 135i forever as a project, so I can't justify getting another small coupe, I-6 turbo with a DCT transmission.

That's why I think my next fun car will probably be a Cayman GTS in a few years

Been working on blending the quarters. Forgot how much I don't miss doing major bodywork hoping I can get this into shape to where I want it in the next week or two. Still need to tweak fitment with the front end a little, replacing every panel almost at once is tough to make it all back to perfect. I think the hood is throwing me off a little. My vinyl comes in today so I might start wrapping stuff this weekend, we'll see. Ordered a Revozport rear diffuser as well

Looks are definitely subjective, but even then I think calling this "so ugly" is a bit of a stretch. I'll happily scoop a used one up for 30k in 3 years if this attitude remains prevalent. B58's are making crazy power now too.

700whp on a pretty new platform and everyone says the supra handles brilliantly.

Luckily, there will be tons of vehicles with B58's to hold over those that want one without the looks of the supra. I can't think of any coupe in recent years that looks worse than this. No stretch for me, this is a very big miss. Luckily it will have gobs of aftermarket support to help it's looks. I'm sure there will be some heavily modified ones that I don't mind. Varis needs to do a $20k widebody kit I'll never buy

Not really. Some of the reviews I read yesterday say it's a pretty cushy ride, more GT-like, and, even in Sport mode, it leans too much on the track. I couldn't really imagine giving up a lighter, better looking, more utilitarian car with good steering like the N55 135i for the new Supra, and that's not to mention no manual transmission option.

Now, if the new Supra was 2800 lbs and came with a manual, this would be a different discussion, but a Cayman is still the one to beat when it comes to handling.

Really the mkiv was a GT car that was underwhelming in stock form so that's no surprise.

Interesting. Matt Farah is far and away the best driver of the reviewers I watched (and the guy from Speed Academy), and they had glowing reviews of the handling, steering and track ability. Farah was destroying everyone's lap times, got several point byes. He also called it a drift machine. He did say he wished the steering was a tad quicker, but soft, gt like and too leany were not mentioned. Which reviews mentioned those qualities?

I read so many reviews it's hard to keep them straight! Here's one of them.

https://www.autoblog.com/2019/05/12/...g-impressions/

Even Jalopnik said today "But it lacks the tightness that the Cayman has, the directness, the ability to change direction on a dime as if controlled by thought alone," and "The new Supra is good. I’m glad it exists at last. I’m glad it is real. But no matter how fun it was, I think it’s an F-Type-killer, but not a Cayman-killer."

Ya, the b58 is clearly the engine to own now and will probably have the largest aftermarket of any BMW every built thanks to the Supra. My eye has started to wander....but I'll definitely hold out for a few years when depreciation hits.

Completely agree with this, looks like a nice GT car but I wish it was more track focused. Many have commented the steering feels a bit too light as well.

Sorry for taking so long to post a couple of pics of the DCT fluid service I had done. One pic is of the new filter which goes into the side of the trans. The other pic is the opening in the trans where the filter is inserted.

My mechanic said the trans didn't need to be fully dropped to get to the filter. But definitely need to be lowered some so the new filter would have clearance to be inserted into the trans.

Definitely! I had a Mark lll Supra with a manual transmission and that car was a blast! Loved it till I totaled it. Not the Mark lV super supreme Supra, but still lots of fun! Might not've bought it if it didn't come in a manual.

I've heard that Toyota has had a ton of requests for a manual version of the Supra. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw one in a year or two.

As for what I did for the 1er today, I replaced the OFHG and coolant change. Easy stuff. The worst part was actually removing the air box. Not hard-just harder than it should be!

Plugs today!
Not sure if the 95770 NGK's are coming back finally, or if Autozone just has some still floating around... BMS shows backorder, ECS says ~May 16 back in stock

I ordered a set just to see if AZwas totally confused or if they really had these things ready to ship. I wasn't holding my breath, they've been on perma-backorder for months now. They did space on the order for a week, and I had to pester Customer Service to get things rolling, but they shipped the next day after that & were waiting on the front porch for me today...

Mind you, I paid a premium for em at $15 ea, but have em I do. Their website claims to have more available as a ship to home item so if you need and you're willing to cough up more than $11 for em...
