  2. Rattle when I decelerate?

    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    Last night I installed a new exhaust and drove it around, everything seemed fine until I started it this morning and noticed when I'm at 4000 RPM and decelerating there's is a rattle noise and it sounds like it's under the hood but I'm not sure. Does anyone know what it could be or how to fix it?
  3. Looking for a BRZ; which years to avoid?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    The wife wants a BRZ and I'm much obliged to help her ;-) We're considering both new and used; ultimately it depends on price vs. what we get. Clearly the 2017 has a number of improvements, in particular the shorter gears and slightly more power and revised suspension settings. But if we find...

    Hello to all, I ordered a BRZ and I am hoping to get it by no later than December. Just in time for winter. :-( Which leads me to my first set of questions. Since I am planning to get the car during the beginning of winter, I would like to order new snow tires (once I get a confirmed...

    New Member Introductions
    I'm going to picking up my new 2015 Crystal White BRZ Limited later this afternoon. This will be my first Subaru after a long history of BMW's and Audi's. It will be my "weekend fun car" but I'm sure I'll want to drive it to work occasionally as well. I just sold my 2013 Audi TT-RS a little...
  8. Tow Hook Color

    Subaru BRZ Exterior and Body
    I have a WR Blue BRZ, and I decided to get the Raceseng Tug View tow hook/GoPro mount for the front. I also eventually want to get Gold OZ Racing Ultralaggera wheels, so I was wondering what color tow hook I should get. I like the red one, but I don't know if it would look good with the gold...

    I know this topic has been brought up before. However, the only topics/comments were last posted was around 2012-2013 and I was wondering if anybody was still having problems with this. I have a 2015 BRZ blue series and the chirping noise has started when I reached 500 miles. Any help or...

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    So I love taking road trips, and now that my BRZ is broken in I decided to take it on a 1500 mile one. WOW.. The car really loosened up on this trip, speeds of 95mph sustained and she just prrrrrd still had power to give I was shocked a little. So I drove 1100 miles in the first day of the...
  15. Subaru BRZ might be discontinued

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    If this is true the resale value of the BRZ could be pretty good. From the article: A new report coming from Australia indicates the Subaru BRZ might not receive a second generation. It seems the Subaru BRZ could be terminated after only one generation in the event that Toyota and BMW will...

  18. Limited Sales may doom "More Power"

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Just received the following Road & Track article: Why We Won't Get a Faster FR-S - News - Road & Track This news doesn't bode well for our wanting "more power" from the factory. Though disappointed, I choose to think that our cars are increasingly rare and thus much more valuable!
  19. Door lock buzzer volume

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Owner's manual claims that the volume of the buzzer that rings when the doors are locked can be progremmed by the dealer. The buzzer on my car is so quiet I can barely hear it (no, I'm not deaf yet). Is this normal? Does anybody know the magic sequence of actions that can be used to modify the...

    Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Not sure if this post belongs here or not but I'll ask anyway. So, I have the TSW Gunmetal NURBURGRING wheels on my car and I've gotten a couple of significant scrapes on the edges of them. Could I use plastic dip or something similar to touch those up so they're not so noticeable? I see there...
