I REALLY wanted a Toyota GT-86, believe me. If they had at launch what will be the upcoming Monogram Series, I would be in a rebadged FR-S right now. I really wanted my amenities, though. I was already having a tough time giving up my sunroof/moonroof that I had in my Forester and WRX Limited. Alaska is dark for so long during the winter that I knew how important it was for me to feel like I had enough light when the sun DID some out during the winter, which is the middle of the afternoon when I take off for lunch. Also I wanted seat warmers and side mirror defrosters. Push button start was just a bonus. I figured trying to add any of those features (minus push button) on the FR-S later would be more work than I wanted to invest.

If I lived somewhere warmer, I think a stripped down FR-S would've been fine. I did initially like the GT-86/FR-S front bumper much more. The BRZ's was polarizing (as was the name "BRZ"). Now I've grown to love it, though.
