Nice option if you don't mind having a company do a conversion on your new Supra...

Doesn't this use the ZF 8hp series transmission? From what I've heard, it's a pretty nice auto.

The 8HP is pretty nice, but it can get confused during rolling stop maneuvers. At least with FCA programming, they hold 3rd until shifting to 1st at a stop. This results in some pretty terrible downshifts into 1st or 2nd when the vehicle catches on to the fact that coming to a full stop was never the intention.
