This September Bowater Toyota are putting best foot forward and getting right behind the drive to inform men how important it is to get more involved with their own health. This month is Blue September, the Prostate Cancer Foundation's national awareness campaign to get more kiwi men talking about their health in general, and getting checkups.

Bowater Toyota where keen to get involved when asked by local customers Placemakers. Nationally they are a cornerstone sponsor of the event. Locally they also get right behind it and get folks motivated and talking about it. Amongst otther activities they will be holding an absolutely awesome fundraising evening on Friday September 12th at the Stoke School - a good old fashioned Quiz Night and auction. All proceeds will be donated to Blue September.

It costs $15 a head, and the tables seat 8, so get a bunch of mates together and call Steffan at Placemakers in Stoke asap to secure your spot.

some kind words from a grateful customer.


It is always so nice to hear positive feedback from customers on the great experience they have had with any one of our busy departments across the region. Good news is good news, and it restores faith in our collective experience and cultural narrative - so when stories like this come to light they are to be celebrated!

Dave Cox from Kapiti had some mechanical issues whilst here on holiday, and was so impressed with how the team at Bowater Toyota handled the whole event that he wrote to tell us.

Not wanting to blow our own trumpets (cue the Al Mapperley Trumpet solo) but we in the media department here at Bowaters feel that this kind of niceness from our valued customers needs to see the light of day.

Improving on perfection. The 2014 Toyota 86 gets tweeked.

MY15 Toyota 86
The new 2014 MY15 model Toyota 86. Perfection. Improved.

Improving on the purest, most engaging and dynamic driving experience Toyota delivers is a lofty development goal, but one that has been successfully realised with the arrival of the MY15 Toyota 86 and GT86.

Upon its debut in 2012 the 86 was hailed as a modern performance phenomenon; a classic rear-drive sports coupe offering perfect weight distribution, perfect balance and a crisp and communicative on-road feel for out-and-out driver involvement.

“When a model launches its first iteration as perfectly realised as the 86 did almost three years ago, the assumption could be made that the car’s development process freezes at that point. Naturally, this couldn’t be further from the truth,” says Neeraj Lala, Toyota New Zealand General Manager of Product. “We are now receiving the 86’s third series of enhancements.  

“Toyota’s engineering division has continued to evolve key 86 performance attributes, delivering in the MY15 model a series of updates that will enhance the enthusiast driver’s ability to safely and confidently control the car as appropriate to the environment, whether that be on the road or the track.”

Together the 86 and GT86 models showcase a number of enhancements designed to further improve and develop the on-road dynamics of this award-winning sports car, as well as add to the tactile enjoyment of its driver-orientated cockpit.
