    AT.. It's not a bad auto I'm pretty impressed with it compared to the manual. I'm still hitting about 25 but I'm only on the first tank I'm sure when I put the second tank in ill be consistently hitting 35+

    You won't see the top #s until after the 1000 mile break in... I started really seeing a difference around 1600 miles

    its a blast! its kept me grinning from ear to ear and the way it stays planted and very controlled at a higher speed into turns and even full on sideways! all the while getting good mpg's!

    I sold my '94 twin turbo 3000GT when I bought this... just as a "power reference"

    Its not overly fast, but its decently quick, alot more than you'd expect for the #s. The big thing is its lighter than a Prius :p

    Prius@~2800 > FR-S@~2700

    Love the FRS. I actually went to the dealer for that car but instead went with my Tacoma. I'm a bit to big for it. I always think I'm a small little Asian.

    supercharged with lots of midtravel bling.
    Jay I think the pics are missing something. Not used to noticing the car in them.

    On a side note I tried to sell the wife on an FR-S and she wasn't real receptive to the idea, but she really liked the roadtrip pics.

    That car is screaming,"drop me an inch." Plus, you'll get better gas mileage due to the lower wind resistance.

    Exactly. But I already got rid of it and it really needs to get replaced so I can get my Jeep back. Im working on getting a car we both can agree with.

    Jay has been helping me try to convince her on an FR-S with pics but maybe a test will help.
