So, I brought it home! (y)



2019 Scat Pack With Plus package, Alpine Upgrade, Driver's convenience, sunroof, and nav.

I'll clean the bugs off tomorrow. I had to get up at 5AM to go pick her up and I'm beat.

Sharp looking ride.

Thanks all! It was hard for me to keep my foot out of it, but doing the break in properly. Only 328 miles on her so far.

Worse. Big splats take some scrubbing.
Agree. Bugs weren't the major issue though. I was washing it and there's tar splattered on the right side of the car. I got most of it off this morning and will have to work on the rest at a later date.

All I have to say is DAMN. I can only feather the throttle and I'm over the speed limit. I'm not even trying to romp on it at all. This should be interesting.

Thanks! I'm enjoying the car a bunch. Way more fun than my Toyota 86 that I traded it in for.
You sound like me. I had been driving a loaded focus ST since 2015. Traded it in on my WB ScatPack and man that was a good choice. ????

I had a 2017 RT challenger before the 86. I thought I would like a smaller and lighter car and traded the RT for it. One of the biggest mistakes of my life right there. I loathed that vehicle after a month of ownership and wanted out of it ASAP. The first time I brought the 86 to my buddies house, he says to rev the motor when I started it. I did and he just walked back inside his house without saying a word. I think it took him 6 + months to even ride in it. He owns a 40th anny vette and a 2016 mustang gt.

Never been much of a foreign car fanatic, but after visiting the Toyota website and reading up on the 86, I can only imagine the buyer’s remorse you experienced after ditching the 2017 R/T. That 156 lb-ft of torque is right up there......with my 2013 Dodge Dart. :ROFLMAO:

Getting nano ceramic tint tomorrow. This should do wonders with the heat we're having now. I'll have to take some before and after pictures.
