I've recently purchased a used 2009 Aurion GSV40R Touring and it has TRD badging on the engine cover and brembo brakes fitted all round. I've always assumed that this was a factory option although I couldn't find anything on it.

Do you guys think the badge is perhaps a fake and the brembo's were fitted aftermarket. Does anyone else have the same?

Fake badges and have you actually touched the brakes? They are likely plastic/aluminium covers. Don't touch them after driving, they will be hot.

looks like the guy just fitted aftermarket brembos on? i've seen aurions with the touring badge on but looked exactly like the sportivo. he possibly could have done some tune ups on it other than that looks pretty normal to me

yeah your probably right nothing but pure stock power lol

All it is, is a bog stock Touring with some crappy eBay parts, there has been no "tune up" done.

There is nothing wrong with the stock power output, it is not a slow car by any means. But there is no real way to extract any more power without forced induction.

Ok thanks fellas, that all makes sense now.

Yeah it looks like it is a plastic brake caliper cover. First time I looked I could swear it was metallic but turns out it wasn't.
