I wonder what rental cars they actually have available... :shifty:

I hired a BRZ when I was there which was pretty fun. It's quite an enjoyable experience driving on the elevated highways in Tokyo at night.

To be honest I wont lie, if Honda released something like this

In the UK I’d be very tempted, think it looks pretty neat and a little bit quirky!

Nice, what colour? I assume M and sport means it goes fast.

That is one fine looking Toaster!

Unfortunately that's probably what I'll be getting as whatever I get it will need to be able to fit a child seat in there. I'm also not looking forward to the 80km/h speed limits on the highways. :dread:

My car stereo screen looks like this

It was normal then one morning it looked like that, next day it was back to normal and then changed again and now it’s been like the photo for 4 days, anyone else had this problem? I will take it to the dealership but don’t have much time at the moment and wanted to know if I could quickly and easily fix it

Find the fuse for it, pull that out and leave it for 10 mins, then put it back to reset it, see if that helps.

New Supra looks strikingly similar to the new Z4....... :roll:

I also never realised that they actually switched out the Corolla name for the Auris, no idea how good it’ll end up being but the Corolla Hybrid pictured there looks pretty smart to be fair.

Yeah it’s a bit of a cop out in my opinion, previous gen looked a load better to my eyes. Not sure why they didn’t just develop one themselves really but I guess they’ve done a joint venture before with Subaru on the BRZ/GT86 so why not continue.

Dread to think how much a similarly spec’d Z4 is then :dread:
