Seen Chano as he picked up his BRZ today. First time I looked at one up close. Can not think of a single thing to make them look more hot.

I can think of a few.....brembos, hood scoop with an IC peaking through, some forged BBS wheels, lower stance, fatter tires, and STI emblem on the back......

I agree it's a great looking car, I can just think of a few things to make it look more hot is all.

Yeah, it's weird going from a WRX to a BRZ. When you punch it you expect some oomph, but the BRZ is just smooth all the way. It definitely doesn't feel like a Subaru.

I must be part of a VERY small demographic that thinks the BRZ's power level is just fine. It was super quick to me, and the handling made it that much better.

lol You guys. Mmmmm suit love.



The BRZ is quick, but... it doesn't even make 200WHP, just crank. I would love to see what 200WHP looks like. I know Tainen is almost there with his Nameless Performance parts.

Speaking of which... Did you guys see the Invidia exhaust for the BRZ?



or

I know, right? I honestly think I prefer it over the Nameless Performance axleback. I think the NP and STI exhaust ends look the best, though. This Invidia one has the sound I've been wanting from the BRZ.

I can't believe DJ wound up being right!

The handling and general feel more than makes up for the lack of mid range grunt.

Not at all, as I've mentioned several times I came from an MR2 and loved it. I had more than my share of fun in the snow with it also but AWD just gives that much more confidence and enjoyment potential.

I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that's mostly true. The WRX is the first properly quick car I've ever driven and I guess I'm just spoiled now and not ready to go back.

On paper I thought it looked perfect but it just didn't feel that way, although I'm sure it would be better if it were mine and not brand new and could just redline the piss out of it. I respect what it is and what it was made for, and look forward to seeing where it goes, and if I lived somewhere else I would probably have one. You just can't beat the performance and practicality of a WRX/STi though, especially a wagon/hatchback. I also look forward to driving an STi for the first time someday... I'm sure it will probably have the opposite reaction.

Lol, I wouldn't ask anyone, as I know I wouldn't want someone else driving mine. Not to mention I can't afford one anyways so it would just be frustrating. I do kind of regret not just looking for an older one the second time around, but oh well.

I'd like to see somebody do a single outlet exhaust. It would be a downgrade to looks but would probably drop a good 10-20 lbs off the car vs that setup.

Guess it's been done. Something along these lines is what I'd do if I had a BRZ or a GR WRX/STI. Lightest weight/best flow, screw the looks.

?? I've let people test drive mine, and I've driven other's people's car in the past? Hence the reason I drive an STi is because Rack let me drive his car.
