    Did you look at the Subie version at all? Any specific details that swayed you towards Toyota vs Subaru?

    The car looks sick! Everything I have read and watched says it is a blast to drive. More akin to the japanese sports cars of the mid 90's.

    Subaru added a bunch of things that weren't necessary, like push button start and some other cosmetic thing. Frame, suspension, engine, trans, etc are all the same. The price difference is close to 5 grand also.

    There's one spot that doesn't have exceptional visibility and that is the area to the left rear of the driver. Which in mind is to be expected of a two door car with small windows.

    Front visibility is great and so is rear view mirror visibility through the back window.

    Sheesh! Didn't realize it was that much of a price difference. I can see why you went with the yota version.

    The FR-S has everything it needs, and nothing it doesn't need. Its just a simple small easy to operate and fun to drive car.

    That corners really really really well :cool:

    One incident happened today, air bag light came on in the middle of driving. Shut the car off and restarted, didn't come on again...

    Not sure what kinda sensors these things have....maybe it had to get used to my new seat positioning. Which would be cool yet weird.

    I love mine too. Fun as hell to drive. Perrin over on ft86club.com has the vortech sc they have been tuning and its not to bad. Avo has a decent turbo that I don't think is to expensive and innovate has a twin screw sc coming out soon.

    I'm gonna do a intake tune and headers and a catback at some point. I'm prolly gonna go with borla for the exhaust pieces.

    Have you done anything to the intake at all? Like change it to the Afe or Greddy?

    I haven't looked into Borla for this car yet.

    What color is yours?

    No not yet. Only had it a month. I think I'm gonna do either the afe or maybe the fa20clubs intake. I'm gonna get a tune from them also

    I have a ultramarine

    I love the wide-body look. A guy in my car club drew the concept for the green FR-S and this one:

    He deives a pretty bad-ass challenger.
