It was not that tan of a color, in fact it's mostly silver. I just heard people refer to it as champagne so that's what i'm doing.

I did a quick little search and this is what I came up with. I work in the parts department at a Toyota dealership, so I used the list provided from our little website / database and cross referenced it with the internet (List from our database) https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4245/34319222694_c2caa36...

Coilovers have been put on hold due to the weather. Its been awful these past few days, so I got bored and started tinkering with the 86.

Been toying around with the idea of going with coilovers, since I already have everything torn down. I was looking at T3's weld on option, since it would make for a good DIY option.

Too much.

If you're looking to import one yourself just contact a legitimate importing company. they will do the dirty work for you.
