    Get the manual. Only difference lang naman is the red leather interior and the aero kit... Things you can add later. The base manual also has comfort access, push start, digital climate control, bixenon headlights with led DRL.

    im pretty sure Toyota would not honor the reservation system. read this link regarding the lamborghini aventador:
    22 year old is first in his country with a Lamborghini Aventador

    in short, the 22 yr old paid an extra $71,000 to so that he could own the 1st Aventador in Saudi bypassing the reservation system since one has to wait 18 months... if they do that in Lamborghini, im pretty sure Toyota would do that too

And I would rather pay cash straight up than throw away money by financing in-house
    Nope, i dont work for Toyota. in fact, we never owned a Toyota. All our cars are/were Hondas. The only exception, a 2012 Mitsu Pajero BK we purchased last March.

    im sorry for both of you. but if i were in both of your shoes, i would wait for the 86

    imho, tingen ko talaga underpriced ito. may mark-up ba talaga ang toyota dito. a car like this should be price like the Nissan 350Z territory.

    puntahan nyo yun mga sportscars sa Autostrada sa Fort, halos kamukha na nito yun mga nakadisplay, more compact version nga lang.

    ang susuwerte naman nun mga VIP na nakakauha ng units, VIP na nga sila pero parang sila pa naka-bargain.

    this looks like a classic yun tipong 60's carrera pag yun bare unit.

    It really is underpriced... At that price range, the mark-up after tax would be razor thin.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    What's wrong with the A/T?

    Dahil hindi dual-clutch?

    So.. wouldn't it be a trade offense if they took reservation money, issued receipts, and then NOT honor their reservation system? That's clearly a DTI case for me won't you agree?

    Then file it.

    It may be a problem on the dealer side... taking reservations without the guarantee from TMPI that they would receive said number of units... or a problem on the supply side, where Toyota in the US was unable to deliver the total number of units. In either case, the dealer has the responsibility to reimburse you your money...

    If the law here were more protective of consumer rights, they should pay it back with interest.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    *genesischain and hrtrob, how did the dealer get you to part with your money? I recall as early as June 21, the motoring press already reported that stocks were sold out. So I'm wondering what sort of enticements were presented to you. In any case, I hope you got your money back. Coz if it sits with the dealer, it earns interest for them and not for you. And niky's right. You should file a case with the DTI or the local courts. Which dealer is this by the way, so we know which one to be wary of.

    you can file a complaint with DTI but in my opinion, its not worth the hassle....
