Think the Toyota Approved Used programme has a 30 day exchange facility - though don't know what terms and conditions are attached.

I didn't get it through Toyota,it was a car sales place as she's a year old BUT I for her approx £2,500 cheaper then a Toyota shop!!! I will preserve and try with the sports mode on etc. I'm sure it will be fine

I've been driving on manual,with the paddies and vac sport off and feels like a totally different drive. Next is traction control OFF when I'm feeling brave

I had an auto gt86 for two years and loved it because it gave such variation of changing gear depending on your mood and roads. i.e. Auto, auto sport mode, manual with paddles, manual with stick shift and auto with manual override. Stick with it and try all the modes.

Be very careful with t/c off....i span mine like that. Used to love it in vsc sport in dry but be careful in wet with vsc sport as it can still catch you out.

The gt86 owners club is another good forum to get information.

My commute is 2 miles each day in traffic so never really used car properly. I went for a total change for something I wanted that was unique, economical and clever. Toyota iq2 auto. Got £4k off pre reg and load of cash back on gt86. I miss the fun of gt86 but not constant worry of it getting marked etc.
