    Figured since I got a build for my truck, might as well start one for the BRZ :D

    Gonna be a slow start with lack of pictures but hope to get some things going here soon :cool:

    Picked the car up on 8/22/13, got the windows tinted the following day (15% all around), dropped in a k&n filter, debadged it, and got some weathertechs installed.

    Hey you are missing a pedal. I would go to the dealer and get that checked out.

    Where I live and DC driving daily steered me away.. Paddle shifting aint the same but its still fun to drive either way.

    I am absolutely in love with your car. I would prefer Subaru over the Scion name and the color choice is perfect. Love it.

    Interesting, you chose an automatic like I did with my Impreza (yes that's the Taco shift knob drilled out to 21/64" and threaded on):

    Look into getting a master cylinder brace to limit firewall deflection and improve braking feel:

    I went to 86Fest in Fontana, CA not too long ago and was amazed at the after market stuff available for these cars. I too am a big fan of the Tom's rear LED taillights. Are you planning to switch out the bottom lower light as well to an all red LED assembly?

    The only accessory I wish would fit on the BRZ is the 5:Ad kit found on the FRS. Looking forward to the STI kit but still won't compare. So far, I'm loving your build. Anything you would do different that you've already done?

    There are TONS of things to do this car, definitely hurts the wallet, haha. I do plan to swap the rear lower light, its just kinda far down the list at the moment.

    There are quite a few kits similar to the 5:ad one that are for the brz. I will do a front lip and possibly side skirts, my next thing is s tune, then lower the car 1", then wheels/tires. So far I've thought ahead so I have not done anything I wouldn't do again.
