My other type r was wrote off and I just felt like there was unfinished business so after having a toyota gt86 on test and a focus st old and new nothing compared just love the feel of the type r so here is ........



Got her she was inneed of a really good clean all wheels where kerbed roof was rusting so it's been off to the body shop and got her back yesterday




Let me know what you think

Not sure about the wheel colour though I wanted a lighter grey but there alotdarker than I thought they would be but an amazing finish for wheels

Looking good, how did you find the gt86?
I have to say very drap and boring in the dry horrible sounding engine abit lacking compared to type r. Very unpredictable in the wet I have an mr2 turbo running 350 that much better to drive in the wet. interior has gadgets but feels and looks cheap rattles no boot space to get anything in. All in all not very good

Now they are not really my cup of tea but very interesting comments as the press seem to really rate them:worms:

There not black the a really dark anthrecite grey that's what I'm unsure of

This was the colouring expected



I purposely didn't want black or dark grey wanted above - even took the bloke out side and showed him the rage wheel inserts which are a similar colour :-/ gone out this morning to a flat tyre so tyre not sealed properly is anybody any good with photoshop fancy I doing a wheel on my car to check I'm right :)

Been back for some rework

As I'd already said I wasn't happy with the wheel colour so the body shop agreed to redo the wheels and here are the results :) hope you like






Look loads better in my opinion also tidied up the rust number plate screws too

Cheers Daz
