Hey thanks for taking the time to stop by my build thread.. so I’m pretty new to this platform, never had a previous FRS/BRZ. I’m excited to learn and explore this new chassis. I also own a 2020 civic type r and a 2021 toyota supra, and both of those cars obviously are fast than the GR86 but the GR86 out handles my supra stock vs stock and is right behind my type r as well! I’m really impressed with the little gr86 so far 👍🏽 Anyway on with some pictures

So I have been looking for a base model MT red gr86 for months… I didn’t want a premium because I wasn’t sure if I liked the duckbill wing on the trunk and I was going to change the wheels and seat anyway so I definitely knew I needed a base model.. but everyone I found was ether sold or the dealers wanted 3.5-7k over MSRP. I looked everywhere in state out of state and I couldn’t lock one down, until about 2 weeks ago… the dealer where I bought my supra and tacoma from gave me a call and let me know that a guy had a red GR86 on order but then backed out of the deal and they wanted to know if I wanted it. I drove down to the dealership right away to negotiate a price and put a deposit down on the car. They told me they would sell me
The car at MSRP but after negotiating with the GM for a bit I ended up getting 1k below MSRP because I had bought my previous cars from that dealership. So with that bit finished I went home and the car arrived 3 days later

I have a set of 18x9.5 Volk TE37s on order but with the 6-7 month wait times I had to get something in the mean time. So I contacted my good friend Matt that owns ICB motorsports over in Arizona and he hooked me up with some satin gunmetal 18x8.5 Regamasters. I also picked up a set of 245/35 Falken RT660S

so much better than the premium! Let me know how you like them. I'm not the biggest fan of this style from Recaro, but considering from a pair of RS7s at the moment.
Thanks man. I wasn’t able to find a premium at MSRP lol all the dealerships wanted like 5-7k over.. I was going to change the wheels anyway so with that extra 7k I saved I was able to get wheels suspension and seats lol so it worked out

That’s pretty much what I did too! Hahaha. Exhaust, wheels, coilovers, and small bits. Seats hopefully coming soon, but now I’m looking as some 326 power seats as well. Basically just bride knockoffs, but such a cool company

Beautiful! Definitely on the list once the factory seats start wearing out. They fit the interior so well.
