They sold one when i was there. Think she bought a Crosstreck. The center of the lot is still full of used domestic new cars though. They had the BRZs pulled up to the road frontage for passers by to see. Only had about truck load. Sure others are on the way. Would take at least 6 or 8 truck loads to fill the lot. Not a huge lot like the chevrolet Peltier lot. Maybe 50 cars max cap.

I just test drove the silver BRZ Limited. Gutless.
I'm ready for the service/parts dept to open.
I asked about a grand opening meet/show, but the manager wasn't around.

D - You've got some crazy $&@* on your fb page. Hahaha.

I'll call up there again tomorrow. He seemed so excited and even mentioned how two guys there drove a Mazdaspeed 3 and a WRX and was all for it. I just never heard back from him.

Definitely do though. Would be nice to get a lot of East Texas Scoobs out in one place at once.

Yea! I run 2 FB pages dealing in odd shxx. 15000 likers. Gets crazy. Lmao. Yea hope they go with the legacy turbo position in the brz tired of the scion crap stealing subi tech and saying its theres. The atmosphere when walking in seemed souly geared to the family market to me rampager. Like they weren't to interested in pushing sport mkt to hard. Hope they do though. But, was just first feelings upon entry.

He said his computer was not registered for Subaru parts. "As far as lookin up parts" So DO look up your part #s numbers before you go purchase. Part schematics might not be accessible from his computer for a little while longer. Parts dept. is open till 6:00.

I called and ordered a couple things. They are sourcing parts from another dealer until they are completely up and running.

I stopped by there tonight after heading home from helping a buddy swap motors from his wrecked miata to his new shell, and noticed they were open (I don't make it over on that side of town very often). I still would love a BRZ, gutless as they may be, because I can always get an AVO turbo kits for it and not be quite so gutless any more lol and if she happens to go, then just build it and go for awesome lmao

1st: who's the black WRX with pinks. Saw you twice Thursday. You have TXIC stickers,so I figure your in here.
2nd: mystic, the rumor mill is still that even though they want the brz to be naturally aspirated they haven't kicked the idea of the legacy lower turbo location for the STI model. Have to wait and see. Wish they would. Tired of seeing that Scion steal the steam. Brz needs to get on top and not trade tech and info with Toyota any further if they want to be the winner in this sales wise. You know toyion" can't do it without further suckleing of there teet.

Well, both companies confirmed at, err, whatever car event that is that they would have forced induction models: Toyota with a supercharged and Subaru with a turbocharged.

The FRS will always be the sales champ. They are building way more of them.
Subaru has repeatedly said no turbo. They were recently interviewed and the phrase, "It's not all about 0-60..." was muttered.

Needs to be soon. But after next weekend, so I can fix my nasty oil leak first!

Also, depending on when, I may be in a Bugeye and can have my brother drive the Saabaru in
