    I really want one of those, well the BRZ actually.. the couple extra touches like climate control and heated seats make a big difference for me.

    my wife has a BRZ on order, comes in in march/april. . can't wait!! :D

    HUH?? I've owned 8 subies in my life (three at present time) I'd love to see you change the alternator, starter, oil, on another car faster. Each one of those I have done in under 10mins.

    That being said the plugs/valve cover gaskets can be a bit of a buggar. . they take 30-45 min :rolleyes:

    i totally agree on this & you cant boost the motor with reliability bc of the rod design unlike a true wrx/sti motor. Even the BRZ is a waste to me being a subie lover/owner. Toyota really needed to make this car for their young demographic & lack of a true decent mpg rear-drive coupe, not Subaru. IMHO, If you really have the flow (cash), buy an EVO IX & be the happiest of all crowds.
