  3. Maintenance requirements

    Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Hi everyone! I am planning on retiring one of my vehicles and was looking at the BRZ. Seems a pretty reliable vehicle and lots of fun to drive. 3 questions for you: 1. What maintenance is required for this rwd vehicle? Oil changes every 6,000 miles or so (Mobil 1 ... 0W20? Or what?) and a rear...

    I came across this article. It is copied below but the charts (which are great) did not come through. The link is copied below. Stick in a dummy email address to get the entire article.

  6. Subaru BRZ: in the midst of intense Sibling rivalry

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    It might be the new BRZ sports coupe of Subaru but it sounds like a Toyota and looks too like a Toyota. At the danger of duplicating ourselves, the Toyota 86 sports coupe and the Subaru BRZ project were a combined effort between the two giant car making companies of Japan. Toyota New Zealand...

    I'll leave this right here. Discuss. Who should get more praise for the BRZ/FR-S Subaru or Toyota?
  8. 2013 Subaru BRZ - Meeting the STI

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    With all the hype surrounding the BRZ, you'd almost be forgiven for thinking Subaru has never offered a car that appealed to enthusiasts before. While Subaru cars may be most closely associated with Whole Foods and dog parks to the average person, the brand is widely known for its rally heritage...
  9. Are you talking too much

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    So this morning wake up and head to the car wash. "What the hell car is that? Wow, who makes that thing? All wheel drive right? No turbo? Are you sure?" Then off to the diner and another crowd of people. "That car looks amazing. How much did it cost? That's it? What a great deal." Finish the...
  10. 2015 Subaru BRZ Turbo

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    The Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S have been tearing up in sales lately, becoming the No. 1 and No. 2 selling cars, respectively. This comes as quite a surprise, considering they both were met with some minor grumbling over the fact that neither had any plans for a turbocharged model any time soon...
  11. Only black interior?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Like many I was so excited to see Subaru coming out with the BRZ. Nice to see a nice lower cost rear wheel drive sports car. It greatly reminded me of my first car - a 1982 Mazda RX-7. However I now crossed it off my list. The reason? Black interior. I live in the desert of Arizona. No...
  12. Is the BRZ going to be your daily driver?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Is your BRZ going to be the car you use as a daily driver? If so, tell us what part of the country you live in, I'm curious how many people in the north or midwest will be using this as a DD in the winter.
  13. Why all the AT hate?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I feel like this need to be addressed, since there seems to be a ton of MT purists on here. You do know the AT better gas mileage than the MT? And it's not like maybe the fraction of a second quicker MT is going make much difference on an already slow car. AT or MT, isn't this car about the...
  14. BRZ or WRX?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I have always wanted a WRX. It was actually how I found out about the BRZ. (Went to Subaru's web site to build and price a WRX). Is anyone struggling to decide which to buy? WRX (5 door) would be more practical from a utility/passenger standpoint. The 5 doors are hard to find though. Limited...
  15. Car Decisions BRZ Sti? or keep putting money in my old WRX for Track?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    So I currently have a 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX. The only mods I have was what came with the car used. Which was: -Pro Drive Exhaust -Pro Drive Tune up -HKS Ground Kit -K&N Intake -Pro Drive Wheels -Track Brake Pads -Everything else is OEM I use it as a daily commuter but I recently took my WRX...
  16. Rumor: Subaru BRZ STI to Be Naturally Aspirated, Rear-drive

    Subaru BRZ STI Discussion
    Now that the Subaru BRZ is nearly on sale and we've had one in our office to test, people are back to the fun game of speculation on the BRZ STi. Auto Express is the latest peddler of such rumors thanks to a conversation they had with Subaru marketing manager Atoshi Atake. "We have already had...
  17. TTAC Publishes Exclusive Picture Of Supply-Constrained Subaru BRZ

    Subaru BRZ News and Reviews
    Car & Driver horrified lovers of unadulterated driving fun with the news that "just 6000 Subaru BRZ sports cars will be allocated to the U.S. for the 2013 model year." The source of that report is somehow suspect: "A Subaru dealer." Car and Driver's telephone budget must have been cut. The...
  18. Subaru celebrates 40th anniversary of AWD

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Yes the BRZ isn't AWD but that doesn't mean we can't be proud to own a Subaru. Who knows maybe the BRZ will one day be all wheel drive.
  19. Great insight about future WRX

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    There is a good pic(wouldn't paste) and article about where Subaru might be heading over the next few years on The odd thing is that it seems that some of what they have said might be double talk. At the shows for the BRZ reps have been asked if this was the platform that the...
  20. Subaru BRZ STi Exposed! A complete look at the Subaru BRZ STi Concept

    Subaru BRZ STI Discussion
    Come April it's going to be a mighty hard choice for potential owners of the 86 and BRZ. Which car to go for? They are virtually the same vehicle, no major differences except the badges and of course similar prices. However, once the car you see here hits the showroom it's going to be might...
