    Last year supra was made in japan

    i been looking around to see what changes were made by the factory on the 99-01 all i noticed was the gauges. can some shed some light on this. also would it be possible to change the gauges from an american supra to the ones in the 2000 model. the one with the boost gauge?

    Im not sure if it would work as all the ones with different gauges are RHD.

    I also know there was a tiptronic version of the car that had a different shift console, and a 3 spoke steering wheel with arrow buttons on the front.

    I think a new, smaller ABS unit was made as well

    I'm sure there's more but that's all that came to mind at the moment.

    i kinda think it wouldnt work since theres most likely diff wires going to the gauages. maybe a JDM wirring harness witch would be reall hard to work with if you car isnt RHD.but you never know

    Last model year was 2002 in japan but yea the gauges are for a RHD car depending on how they are positioned and wired. I didn't know there was a tiptronic, interesting.

    I was wondering if it was imported to any other countries such as UAE and other middle east nations. What was the price tag on the 02 models in US$'s? Also I have seen the state charts for the US import Supras but not the total production #'s over all.

    a JDM gauge cluster can be used on a USDM Supra. Got a buddy who did it. Hell if i understood how he wired it up though. but it looks pretty bad ass to see it, but kind of weird also since it sticks out the dash verse sitting under it.

    You could, but it's not worth it, and they are ugly. You'd have to wire it in yourself as it's not going to just plug in. It will also be in km/h. PITA, but you can make anything work if you want to spend the time on it.
