Hi all I am a new user who has been lurking on this site for months now just reading and researching. I have finally decided to buy a FR-S and have given my local dealer a $500 deposit to secure the next car to arrive that matches my spec.
I asked quite a few questions about TRD parts and dealer installed upgrades and after some poking and prodding my dealer came back to me with a list of potential things they could do. Below is a list of all the possible things my dealer said they could do (at least these are the things I was interested in) and I wanted to share. Prices are considered final-installed.
So I know that no matter what I will be upgrading my exhaust and air intake. I am just wondering if the TRD parts are worth the money or even comparable to other after market parts.
- Leather seats - $1495
- Shark Fin Antenna - $125
- 5 Axis Body Kit w/spoiler - $2495 (not sure if this includes the lowering kit or not will ask monday)
- TRD Exhaust - $1235
- 18' Black Matte Wheels and tires $1695
- Clear sheild by 3m - $695
- Window Tint - $299
- TRD Cold Air intake - $525
I am also considering getting this exhaust instead: http://www.borla.com/products/frs_br...t__140496.html. It is considerably cheaper and if its just bolt on I could install myself. Borla claims 4-6hp/tourque gains at the wheels.
I have never seen or heard of the TRD Cold Air intake before and cannot find a single piece of information on it anywhere on the internet. I was given a picture of what it looks like and I just cant tell if it would be worth the cost. The url to the picture is: http://www.toyotaasg.com/imagebank/98102.jpg (if you click the link you will see the picture). I have tried to get into that site but it seems to be a Toyota dealer parts site and a region and dealer code is required to access. If anyone has info that could be helpful getting in there that it would be appreciated!!
Any info or opinions you have would be greatly appreciated. I have not taken delivery of my FR-S but once they call I will have to be ready to make some decisions on what (if any) of these dealer installed options I want.
