Summary:

Unreal, love it

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with the car, but I did crack an alloy that had to be fixed!

General Comments:

Love the car think it looks unreal in white. I wash it almost every day and just look at it. I have have super lightweight alloys on it from Japan in pearl white with a blue rim and centre cap. It makes the car stand out!

Love the acceleration of the car, and it's not too bad on petrol either.

Everything you could want or need is in the cabin. Ice cold air con, cup holders and I love the electric folding mirrors!

The seats are awesome, and the super strut suspension sticks it to the road. However, the suspension is really hard, even at low speed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Love those levins!!

Imported a black AE111 Trueno BZR 1998 1.6 20v 6speed similar to the levins apart from front lights and rear lights.

Not registered yet due to SVA (waiting for the 10 year rule to apply) which will be in NOV 1998 meaning straight to MOT.

I did drive my Trueno back from the docks about 80 miles . All I can say is the quality of the car is more Lexus nothing like the earlier Toyotas nice and solid. The drive was surprisingly quick but very hard suspension (super strut), nothing else on the road that looks like it... awesome coupe!!! Can't wait to get it back on the road.
