The BRZ isn't breaking any boundaries don't get me wrong but neither did the S2000 (stylistically) yet no one really complains.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong per say with the ST's looks, just that it looks close enough to a regular Focus to be a bit disappointing, i.e. not "special"

I want to feel like a snowflake damnit!

To be honest, I actually prefer the front end on the base focus hatch over the catfish ST grille.

I'm with this guy. Had they let open the grill it would've looked better. And been functional rather than those damn shutters.

What's wrong with the shutters? Seems like a cool idea to me.

Lots of variables for them to open. So far it looks like they open to late and cause heat soak.

Cobb programs it out but no you can't pull a fuse. You can unplug the motor but it throws a code.

I promise it will go round a track faster than down a strip.

Btw it lost a tenth with slicks on.

Maybe just a difference in the weather? Because it should grip much better off the line.

I don't think I can get the slicks heated up. The GY's actually did very well.

Ahh, my personale preference is the Dunlop Direzza Z2's, excellent tires, and if I end up doing seasonal tires on the BRZ that's what I'm running.

80mph in the 1/8th? Not bad at all. My GY's grip very well also. I still wouldn't mind having a set of radials though just because.
