    Trying To Trace Previous Owner

    Well I said I’d report back so here we go. I got a nice email back from the previous owner to say that he handed everything over to The Car Shop when he traded the car in. After a long battle they where quite forthright in their last email to say that they were done with this matter and not to contact them again about it. They then put a block on our emails. So the upshot is that somewhere in the Car Shop empire is a spare GT86 key fob and a Sigma Alarms booklet with our security code on it. That leaves us with two possible options. First we could put it in the hands of our Toyota dealer o supply us a new fob and code it, followed by resetting the Sigma code. Possible cost of around £350+. Second, (and this is where you guys can maybe advise me if it’s possible) source a second hand fob and possibly code it myself using the dark magic of 2 pushes of this, 4 presses of that, do a funny dance etc etc. Once that is done I’ll have two working fobs which then enables me to reset the Sigma code. Any help appreciated. Thanks Bod

    Bought Myself a Winter Project

    Well I have run it round the patio but it’s a bit fast for a small area and it’s difficult not to bump into things. I just built it for the fun of building it really and to have another model of my car. GT86 is next🤘The shell has already arrived.

    All done.

    I only bought it because the MR2 shell has to sit on a Tamiya M-06 chassis which has 3 wheelbase settings. Obviously the kit comes with the Beetle shell but that requires the chassis to be built on the longest wheelbase. The MR2 requires the shortest wheelbase settings so the shells are not interchangeable. I only built the Beetle shell as a practice exercise but now I have no use for it. It’s now just a shed ornament.

    I’ve already built it mate and I’m not sure how well it will post or even if it’s the colour you’d like.

    I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now. Got myself a 1/10th scale Tamiya VW Beetle with an M06 chassis with sole intention of putting a Mk1 shell on it to match my own car. Here’s the pictures of what it’s all about

    We have tracked down the previous owners name and address. A letter will be sent this week. Watch this space.

    Actually I’ve just realised that Subaru use Sigma as their alarm system and a GT86 is in reality a Subaru. All is starting to make sense. So all I need is the code for the keypad.

    So are you saying @Devon Aygo that the Sigma system is a standard fitting?

    Trying To Trace Previous Owner

    That’s what we’ve got Phil. I looked on the net for sigma car alarms and the pad we have goes on the S30 system. Having said that, the sonic/motion sensors look different and I can’t find the siren for the system anywhere. Enquiries are continuing. I’ll report back soon. Bod i

    Thanks Mike, The log book isn’t back yet and I’m kind of impatient to get this sorted. The dealer won’t give out any information as usual in this day and age. Bod
