You don't lose anywhere near as much space as you think. I think if you test drove the car for a day you wouldn't even hesitate to buy it.

You can thank insurance reasons for that. I am happy to say if all your friends are 5'6 and under you may be able to fit 4 people in your car.

Nothing wrong with that. My dad is that way, new cars evert two years.

But the brz is more practical than people think. However it isnt a hatch. Lol there will definetly be issues if you always use the wrx, especially if you want someone over 5ft in the back seat.

There's FAR too much sexiness going on in this thread. It's melting all my Alaskan snow much too quickly. Prepare for the flood!

no spacers, no issues on stock suspension. the tires were the stock WRX tires. so they were 235/40/17 i think.

It depends on what you're going for. I'm trying to make a Toyota GT-86 Limited, so the BRZ Limited is the best place to start. If you're needing more of a daily driver, the BRZ Premium or Limited are more suitable. If I were mostly going to track the car, the FR-S would be preferable because of the money saved, weight, and lack of content. Headlights are fugly, though. Would need at least BRZ headlights ASAP.

I cant make it I was just pulled over by South River's Best and didnt have a current insurance card.So I'm not going to press my luck.

Yeah Everything is painted... the only thing installed is the wing though.It's been too cold to install the flares and lip.I heard that that 3m tape likes 70ish degrees for a solid stick.

idk the silver headlights are growing on me. on the FR-S and the 12-13 WRX/STI's I think they just don't photograph well in person they aren't bad. The fact that they aren't HIDs and the stock FR-S stereo is the biggest issue for me. I like the FR-S front bumper better I think and the white tach. I don't like that its a scion..lol. I think the FR-S seats are nicer than the BRZ Premium seats..certainly not as nice as the limited seats.

There is only one manual BRZ at my dealer, scion has 4 different manual FR-S's plus a black CPO with 21500 miles for 22999 with a 7 year 100k warranty and toyo proxies

21.5K miles for $23K? Pass. Who cares if 100K mile warranty... Your resale is insta-****ed due to that mileage. 2 years worth of miles on a less than year old car.

Celery....

Interesting I disagree with you about everything except the front bumper and the scion radio sucking.

Also you can always badge it a Toyota and swap the head unit.
