    Default just bought an AE86 have some questions


    TO REMOVE ADS, PLEASE

    I just got me an AE86 Trueno and I have a few basic questions:

    - how do I tell If I have a GTV or a GT Apex model?

    - how do I operate the popup headlights?

    - was there any badges on the rear?

    - what were the orginal colours it was sold in? I'm only aware of the two-tone
    red/black and white/black for GT Apex and silver for GTV.

    - did each model come with a different type of wheels?

    - what were the optional extras?

    - did the digital dash only come with the GT Apex model?

    - I have a blue/white door and seat trim but red dash, is that normal or should it be blue as well?

    No, only stickers, not real badges as such
    - what were the orginal colours it was sold in? I'm only aware of the two-tone

    There is a lot of them, look in the Tech articles section for more info on colors and paint codes

    unleaded

    headlight control is the top right dial it has headlight icons.

    check in the engine bay on the firewall on the card it should say the orginal colour and other information

    Always run 98 octane also, the Japanese ECU's are designed to run high octane fuel.

    Whats the model code on the build plate?
    Something like this, AE86-FCPVF
    Google it and click on car-net.jp/car_spec/toyota/trueno

    as trueno85 said the headlight is the knob on the right. if you want the headlights to stay up but the lights to be off (say changing bulbs), turn them all the way on and then push the knob in and it turns one more click.

    to find out if its a true gt apex model.check all the glass on the car(window).it should be a light yellow glass.the digital speedo is an option.or why don't you just post up a pick and let us have a look?
