Default Got any Subaru BRZ Questions?

Hey everyone,

I figured I'd get on here and see if there were any questions anyone had about the BRZ? I got mine last Monday and have had a lot of time to drive it around. Lot's of fun! But is there anything any of you guys want to know about it? Got any questions? Or any modifications or things you would like me to try out and report back on? Let me know! I'll be looking forward to seeing what questions you guys have. I can also post pictures or videos too.

Thanks,
Darien

Can you fit a mountain bike in the trunk?

How does the clutch engagement feel? I loved my STI (05), but absolutely abhor my 2011's. The 08 Forester wasn't much better, but it didn't really have enough power to be that bothersome.
Thanks!

You should be able to fit a mountain bike in the trunk no problem! And the cool thing is the back seats fold down real nice and give a TON more room I'll post some pics of the trunk with and without the seats folded down.

If you would, stretch a tape from the seat cushion to the roof I would appreciate it...

I know, I know, everyone says there is plenty of room but I still haven't seen an actual measurement, and since they are mythical creatures here in the SE...

I'll have to see how tall the door is... The car is definitely very small, but as long as you aren't 7' you should be able to get in the car just fine

Haha that is pretty cool, I don't meet too many Darien's.

This is the problem. I'm only 6'1", but 5' or so of it is torso
I sit as tall as most 6'7" or so ppl...
I don't fit in cars well and it sucks.

I am 6'7" with a longer than average torso for my height, and I just barely fit in the car. Unfortunately, there isn't room for a helmet.

I like how the OP said he'd answer questions, and he's only answered exactly one.... after someone else already answered it.

Also, he's startyed appending a sig, with a link to what many would consider a business venture.

Fail.

Are the front blinkers integrated into the headlight housing? If so, which part illuminates; if not, I assume its the same amber fender blinker as the FRS. Thanks!

Actually, if you read his first post, he only solicited questions. He never said he'd answer any of them.

1) Where do you live?
2) How well protected is your house?
3) Do you keep a firearm handy while you sleep?
4) Is your auto insurance up to date?

All kidding aside, congrats. I'm jealous.

Thanks Symbiont.

Sounds like it's going to be close/ no go. Gonna come down to trying it when they show up locally. I have word of a BRZ and an FRS in the area already, just gotta get hooked up

My boyfriend is 6'4", normal build but with long legs and my car is fairly comfortable for him. He actually has a good amount of head room too.

I'm 5'3" and seemingly have no trouble fitting in cars at all.

if you turn off traction control or VDC does it stay off or come back on after a few seconds of having fun.
