Default Oh hai. Couldn't stay away from Subaru for long

I'm back, and in a '15 Crystal White Pearl BRZ Series.blue.

Traded in my '14 Ram 1500 Crew Cab for it. I had wanted a BRZ since they were announced, and instead I purchased the Ram because the needs fit the bill at the time.

Now I no longer need a gigantic truck, and the series.blue in white was calling my name. Looked and only found 2 available in the MD/PA/DE area, both in MD. Once I found one close to me, I couldn't let her slip away.

So hai!

Thanks I love it. Co-worker has a '12 base, and he let me drive it to lunch about 2 weeks ago. From that point forward I was looking for THE one. I'd check every day, on cars.com and other sites, and one day the car popped up on a lot around an hour away. Started e-mailing them yesterday morning, and by yesterday evening I was driving her home.

I've only had mine for 6 months or so but it's still a blast to drive. Today I was 12 miles from work on my way home when I realized I didn't even have the volume on. Who needs a radio when you get to drive a go kart on the roads haha. I wish it was as fast as my wrx which wasn't a rocket ship by any means but the extra pep would really make this car a contender. I will trade mine when a faster version emerges. You got any mods in the works?

Congrats and welcome to our crazy little group! Not that the car needs much, but I'm also curious about which mods you might be considering.

heyooooo.

couple mods i recommend that are cheap and make it come alive/nicer to drive or be in. RCE yellow springs, TIC steering rack bushings, EDM armrest.

this is a relatively quiet forum, for serious inquiries about these cars get on ft86club.com i'm jive turkey on there as well.

pictures!

and lastly, don't try to drive on the stock tires in bad weather, or anything below 60's. its a death trap.

Thanks guys I'll check out ft86club. First I want the Tom's or alternate tail lamps like Valenti's that are red, not these yuck clear lenses. Then a valenti lower brake light setup. Some CF vinyl bits, and thats pretty much it. She'll go into storage/ reduced usage mode next summer for 3-5 years while I'm relocated to Korea. Then when I come home she'll get go fast goodies, suspension bits, and other goodies

3-5 YEARS?!!??!?!?! I couldn't do it! JUST COULD NOT! A god among men you is.

Replace the orange side markers with clear ones.

Jive, where would you get the EDM armrest besides eBay? Looks like it's about $200 there, about the cheapest I've seen.

I will keep it at my house for you. I might borrow your wheels and a decent portion of your aero kit. And your push button start.

Some people say they do. I have the metal bushings and what I'll say is steering/turn-in is a bit sharper. There's no way to improve feel on an electric rack though IMO.
