I really hope Toyota actually takes this seriously and does more than what I am expecting them to do....

We don't need a pile of new wiper motors and wheel nuts.

I am going to have to makes some calls to the people I know in Plano, TX at their corporate headquarters.
See if I can find out anything useful.

I added lots of comments about what I was hoping for parts wise. Asked for entire interiors, all the hoses and rubber in the engine bay, and some modern TRD stuff, like a 3inch downpipe that doesn't hang below the bottom of the car.

I was also glad to see MR2 stuff as a possible option. Granted, I cannot really afford a Supra now, but it would be sweet to get the AW11 fixed up as well after I sell some organs.

I just got an email survey this morning from Toyota asking me first about how much I've spent on Toyota genuine, and then anything else combined. They then proceed to ask about my interest in certain parts, and wondering how many I'd be interested in, why, and how much is be willing to pay. The answers are only selectable, a bit closed ended.

The list of parts is not really impressive to say the least, but addresses some other otherwise unavailable parts.

I'm not going to get my hopes up, but I will show interest through this survey, and hopefully they expand their selection.
What? suspension bushings and upper mounts not on the list ?

There are no aftermarket bushings that are rubber type (OE replacement or stiffer type). In general I won't use poly bushings.

Yes I want to keep the factory ride quality of the car and not go to PU. Besides there is an issue with the KYB upper mounts for the rear with TEMS shocks.

I tend to lean this way as well. I think there's good reason no OEMs use poly bushings.

Yes, rubber is much cheaper. Also with Poly OEM NVH levels can easily reached.

Anyway, the list of reproduction parts as per the attachment is not very promising to say the least

What link are you folks using to register your car?
https://www.toyota.com/owners/my-vehicle in my browser, and I'm logged on... presumably www.toyota.com :)

Edit: After answering this I went back and made sure I opt-ed in because it's been a couple of weeks since I registered. They have a form on the site for opt-in for such things as "heritage parts" and "supra", so I filled out that crap. I need a dealer part, so I may push a bit tomorrow at the dealership.

Where did you find the forms? I am registered, but can't see any form or opt-in.

After registering my car by creating a user account, I went to this menu at the bottom of the page and clicked on "Email Updates"

That took me to this page, and the subsequent pages are very detailed check boxes.

I only did this part yesterday myself. I had registered the first day we started talking about it, and have not heard anything.

I was at the dealer this morning to get parts... which they did not have. I totally forgot about asking... my bad.

I'm due to go back tomorrow for an oil pan drain plug which I think is 18 mm... surprised the dealer didn't have one. Perhaps that shows a need for Heritage Parts :)

Do you like those magnetic oil drain plugs? I run those in my Lexus and Supra oil pan. I still need to find one for the r154 and differential plug.

I haven't gotten in magnetic drain plugs.

I'm scared to death of metal in my crankcase though. There are stories about people not properly cleaning their blocks...

It's been so long between various steps that I lose confidence that I've done things right.

Taking things apart for the past two weeks has allowed me to check my work :)

Once I got that far, and had the pan off, I spent three days just making the pan pretty.

Fumoto drain plug is da bomb. Mine needed a 2nd gasket, but has been good for years now.

The parts guys at the dealership admitted they knew nothing about the Heritage Parts program. They asked me to explain what it was, and promised they'd try to find something out about it. They are going to ask the guy in Texas where they place orders and see what they can find out.

I'm probably going to buy whatever they remake. I'm trying to have as many spare parts as I can have for my car. I've already got spare panel, hood, full interiors, I think two full interiors...….all kinds of electrical parts..etc.

Here is the list, I was surprised to see propeller shaft. I thought most people would just go one-piece?

View attachment 82683

Here is the link:
It's a start. Certainly not enough :( Weather strip could be nice if they have more than one. Funny they include front emblem. Hope they also start making the clip that holds it on... it has been discontinued. I've got my hopes up on a used one. Had the emblem for years. No clip same number of years... like ten or twelve.

Edit: I went with one piece.

The form is great. It asks more detail than I would have guessed. The details asked make me think they're legitimately trying to understand needs on this stuff.

I'll fill it out for my current 91 and for my previous 90. And... perhaps for my other 3 previous mk3's, haha.

I requested all quarter window trim, side louvre panels(window vents), usdm89+ front lip, and gauge panel shroud- the black part that always cracks around the mounting points. The tiresome part, is having to look up the oem original part numbers.

100% on the front lip -- 99% of supras dont have them anymore (in good condition anyways)

Just catching up on this thread and just registered and filled out the form for email updates on heritage parts.

Stuff I'd want is basically about the same as what a lot of you have already mentioned: rubber bushings, TEMS, all the hoses, interior parts.

Does anyone know what the criteria Toyota uses to classify a part as discontinued? Since they updated the parts/inventory system that all dealers seem to use, it seems once a part is classified as "discontinued", it's updated that way across the board, leaving some doubt as to whether there might actually be some inventory still sitting on a shelf somewhere. I asked McGeorge Toyota (I order most of my stuff from them online) if they knew whether it's just based on production being stopped, or if it's that plus all inventory is also wiped out, but they said they didn't know.

I can't answer your question, but have to say that it's always advisable to search even if discontinued in the states. I recently stumbled on a site that looked like a parts department that was really only ordering from another outlet, both in Japan, but nothing was considered "discontinued". They were very chatty and sent multiple advisories as to the status of the order and it was finally revealed that "your request will be submitted to" whatever the outlet... factory, distributor, etc. The price for the item, plus the fees and shipping were so outrageous that even the smallest part would end up costing 80 to 100 dollars. This company has learned that it always pays to ask, so that's what they do... and in the advent they are successful, KA-CHING! As a parts man in the 60s who knew every inch of his parts department, there were things that existed that others couldn't find, or parts that were written off at inventory time for various reasons that still existed... You've got to ask someone who will go through the motions, check the supersessions, look in stock where it should be, etc. For some of the stuff it's obvious why it's discontinued, others, not so much.

Somewhere...
There was a Japanese site that sometimes had discontinued parts.
I can't remember the name of it currently.

Amayama? Their well has been running pretty dry as of late for both the MK2 MR2 and MK3 Supra. Still worth a look to confirm though.
I just ordered a boat load of body clips and parts from amayama to find out that a lot of them have ceased to exist new and I was the first to try and order them in a while apparently. They have some stuff but they're dried up for the most part.
