Hey all!

I'm Dan and I live in Maryland. Last year I bought a Nitro Yellow GR Supra 2.0, which I recently traded for a Neptune Blue GR86. Even more recently, I put a deposit down for a GR Corolla. It's somewhat unfortunate that there won't be any "stupid" color options for the GR Corolla, but I'm ready to embrace the sleeper life with a white or red Core.

Prior to becoming an apparent GR fan, my enthusiast car history consisted of Fiesta STs, a MK7 GTI, and Miatas. I also owned a base E210 Corolla Hatchback as a commuter car, but sold it (at a profit!) after landing a permanent remote work position.

It's amazing how Toyota has not only completely changed my perception of the brand from its boring appliance manufacturer image, but also how they've managed to get someone who historically has had minimal brand loyalty to buy 3 GR products in a row!

Welcome! And I must say Wow on all the GR products. What do you think of the 86? I almost bought one a few months ago but was not impressed by the ride quality. Took my wife on the ride, to have a second opinion, and she didn't like it either. Love that Neptune color!

Thanks! The ride quality is definitely on the stiff side; the first thing my girlfriend commented on after I switched was how much bumpier the ride was compared to the Supra. I heard the BRZ's suspension tuning is a little softer in comparison, but I can't say for sure without having seat time in one myself.

Welcome! I seriously wish Toyota was offering the GRC in that blue. That's a gorgeous color.

Love your blue with the bronze wheels!
