Default I just had a crisis...

...I just saw/sat in my first BRZ

Someone at Toyota/Subaru seriously must have read my mind when the made this car. Its just EXACTLY what I wanted!

Seats are only slightly worse than my JDM WRX seats, but the seating position is soooo perfect its not even funny. Everything about this car is 100% what I want!


But Its going to be a long, long time before I can get one, so now I'm depressed

I understand your pain. I got to sit in/drive a BRZ here at the local dealership. If it wasn't for the major financial hit I would take trading a 1 year old WRX for it I would have in a heart beat.

Such a lovely little coupe.

I love the car as well and think it is damn near perfect (more torque would be nice but I haven't driven one yet so who knows). My problem is that its ground clearance is minimal and I live in CT (seriously inconsistent winters) and can't swing owning 2 cars due to having one that I shouldn't drive in the winter.

Is it bad that the BRZ is helping to sway my thoughts of moving south?

Kosta, I sat in a FR-S yesterday and I've got the same problem as you. I was really hoping there would be something I'd hate about it (aside from the cheaper stuff that's in the FR-S)... but there wasn't. Now I'm sad.

I'm *so* impressed with the BRZ seats. Bolstering is perfect.. Most option sport seats in cars have fairly good lower/hip bolstering, but the BRZ has that AND the upper/shoulder bolstering. Holds you in really well.

I was initially disappointed in the lack of torque during my drive home from the dealership.. But that quickly went away once I finally got the car on some twisty roads. It became clear what engineers and designers had in mind: A car that is meant to live in the 5k+ RPM range. The BRZ does not give a good first impression if you're driving on the street.. It took a nice freeway onramp for me to "get" it.

First thing I noticed was the bolstering was great, but I had about an inch of lateral room that I could slide back and forth in. My JDM seats just hold me tight (and I literally got out of them about a minute before I sat in the BRZ, so it was a direct comparison )
