Snap, ordered mine this morning as well.

Did you find it a bit of a mare, the on line Toyota experience wasn’t that smooth.

Hunted the Toyota UK site from 09:30 and couldn’t find the GR86 order page. About 10:10 I got a Toyota UK email linking to the sales page and managed to get the order sorted by 10:40 odd.

Bit sneaky throwing in the charges for the colours, my assumption was that they’d all be a FOC option.

Emailed my dealer this afternoon (who had to give me back a deposit, since the dealers aren’t part of the ordering process for early cars) and they told me that Toyota has now sold all the stock for delivery July.

If true, the early bird caught the worm 😆

Hi
I ordered mine last week than a phone call from the dealer said it had to be done online on the 20th 0f April so I arranged to visit the dealer today at 13:00 hrs.
When I got there they could not follow the online Order process,so I left for them to sort this out a phone call later saying the allocation had been snapped up and you are on a waiting list,not impressed to say I ordered it last week or so I thought.

Saha,

I’m sure you won’t be the only person that suffered the same circumstances.

Yesterday my dealer phoned me and told me he couldn’t place the order, it had to be done by the purchaser direct.

My dealers said it would be a simple link on the Toyota UK portal, there was no such links. My access was via a timely email for Toyota at 10:10 with a link on it.

As far as I know there’s no volume limit on the 2 year run so there will be other shipments.

Try pushing the dealership into calling in a favour, due to the poor communication and the fact that your were not made aware of the process. Good luck.

I too got mine ordered last week via John Roe in Hull last week, but got a call from Lewis my sales guy, top bloke, on the 19th telling me he had to refund me and told me to come to the Dealership for 10am on the 20th, I was there and Lewis tried to help me purchase my GR86 on his computer, no sign of the car on the Toyota website, or my mobile, so he called Toyota, told him to try different things, but still no sign of the GR86 order page, at 10.35 he called Toyota UK back and got told to click on the Yaris and in the web address remove Yaris and replace it with GR86, bingo the GR order page showed up, ordered by 10.40 ish too, electric blue, confirmation emailed from Toyota.
Crazy process and looks like I just got in in the Nick of time, big thank you to Lewis at John Roe, exciting months ahead

Must say, I like the look of the silver, really suits the car, was my second choice, the blue just took it for me

Let hope the ordering process, shipping and all the rest of the stuff we have no control over, goes to plan…

I mailed my dealer this morning gave them the order numbers just so we are in sync.
