*** UPDATED 23/07/13 – New Invoices and Toyota 86 Periodic Maintenance Check-Sheet are Now Uploaded ***
Several 86 owners are getting billed excessively and differently for the same type servicing interval. The Maintenance costs of the 86, by far, seem to exceed that of certain German cars which kills the purpose of it being an entry level sports car.
As a courtesy for 86 owners of the UAE, our members provide you with this compilation of personal experiences and data. We hope the following helps you figure out what you are paying for when your 86 goes to servicing, what oil grade to use and what you should replace during every service interval.
This year’s Tokyo Motor Show featured some really interesting concept cars from Nissan and Honda. The following concepts seem hint that there is still an appeal and interest in an entry level drivers’ car which is something we dearly miss these days. Nissan’s IDx Freeflow sends a strong message with its resemblance to the once reputable Datsun 510; while Honda’s Beat, seems to have grown a bit bigger than its Kei car origins.
First of all, I would like to confess to the fact there was little to no activity on this blog for the past couple of months but its just that work, life and the fact some amazing club members left the UAE earlier this summer, just pushed me a bit away from this community.
Nevertheless I am back with some news and photos of the updated 2015 Subaru Impreza concept. Its good to see that Subaru is back in the scene, their cars are starting to look more distinct and original compared to what they used to offer, ever since the beginning of time.
