Also you can always badge it a Toyota and swap the head unit.
well the brz lights are better and the scion radio is uglier but I think it has better specs or at least more watts right? The BRZ premium seats have similar cloth to WRX seats FR-S seats are sort of fake suede, they probably won't hold up as well.

Difference between BRZ Premium and FR-S is mainly what your taste is and HIDs. The real difference is when you put the Limited in the equation.

Yeah the HIDs are my main reason for not wanting the FR-S, the other stuff I don't care that much about but adding factory HIDs is quite expensive after the fact.

Yeah either wait a yr for a used one or buy new... 3k for 20k miles is not what you want

yeah I guess 21k doesnt really worry me that much and when you buy new you take a pretty big depreciation hit right off the bat. The thing I like about the used one is that my WRX's trade in value and mileage is about the same so it would be almost a straight trade. Really depends on how it was driven. We got a 1 year old CPO 06 civic ex in 07 with 14k on it for about the price of a new LX and that proved to be a good move but that isn't quite the same thing..lol.

Eh...not much depreciation. No miles > 21K miles. And yes, adding HIDs after the fact if not expensive is time consuming...and my time's worth money.

Also WRB

I only did it since I was getting 2900 trade in equity and with a down payment my monthly dropped 125...plus 50% gas milage.

Those are the financial reasons. The other stuff is pretty awesome too but it depends on your wants and needs

Putting kids in a car seat in the back daily will suck on these cars.

Booster seat age to 10 is probably fine

Add a chainsaw or chipper to your garage and you can own a Miata.
