Toyota’s GT 86, called the Scion FR-S in North America, has been billed from the beginning as an affordable sports car engineered for enthusiasts, so makes sense that the company would offer a list of customization accessories to personalize the sport coupe.

Through the company’s German division, we now know that European customers will be able to buy the following series of aftermarket tweaks. Matte racing stripes in either black or silver can be applied to the hood, roof, rear and sides.

A new set of 18-inch alloy wheels is also available in grey or graphite, along with carbon fiber mirror caps. A suspension that lowers the car 30 mm will be available to improve handling, while the interior stands to gain by adding the Toyota “Touch and Go” infotainment system and a JBL sound system.

Those parts are pretty tame, especially given that the GT 86 is expected to undergo heavy surgery at the hands of its individual owners. Still, there can never really be enough parts to satisfy the tuning community, especially not when the point behind customization is as much about one-upping a buddy as it is anything else.

While these pieces aren’t slated for the U.S. market at the moment, it’s hard to imagine that Toyota would hold out on Scion customers, especially when it’s a chance to make more money.
