Word. I love me some lights. Check out Nigel-JDMParts on Facebook to see a video demonstration of the lights blinking and DRL settings.

Ewwww... not the rocket bunny. It's too incomplete and pieced together for me. This kit, ML24, looks more uniform. Hopefully you have plenty of time to undo the body kit when you need to take off your front or rear bumpers, though.

No, I'm saying the rocket bunny kit has too many separate pieces compared to this one, plus I don't like the lower part of the design of the rocket bunny kit. This kit flows all the way to the bottom of the car and around the front lip. It's more complete or at least better thought-out.

I really was considering a Hot Lava FR-S for a minute.

Here's an up-to-date article: http://www.7tune.com/news-the-facts-...ti-ts-version/

It's the "tS" (tuned by STI). The problem is most Americans want MOAR POWAR, so would never pay the extra that a BRZ tS would cost. I would, but I have a true appreciation for pure handling delight. Most people that talk to me say, "Oh, I wish it had more power." It's a car that you have to learn to drive. I hear the Honda S2000 was the same way, except the BRZ is much more forgiving for beginners.

Basically the BRZ tS is everything I'm trying to build my car up to, so I actually love it! It'll be Japan-only, though, so we can enjoy spending about $10k in STI parts before we even come close to making our own BRZ STI, and that doesn't even include Brembos.

It appears that Galaxy Blue Silica has been discontinued for MY2014 BRZ. Also 6-speed automatic is no longer available on the Premium trim of the BRZ.
