  1. Traded in WRX for this!

    New Member Introductions
    I loved my WRX, but this is the car for me. Picked up a silver 2016 BRZ Premium yesterday. So far so good. I was wondering if anyone had some good reading on the VCS and TRAC buttons and what they actually do to the car's systems. I read the vague descriptions in the manual and didn't quite...
  2. Auxiliary /USB port not workin!

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Hello all, I'm hoping for some collective wisdom here. Just brought home a 2013 Subaru BRZ. I've combed the internet and tried everything we've found to no avail. The aux and usb port will not recognize ANY device. We've tried different devices and phones. We've tried having bluetooth both...
  3. Locking the doors while your car is warming up(It's cold out there!)

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Not sure if I'm just an idiot, please don't answer that, but when I go out in the morning to warm up my 2015 BRZ keyless, why can't I lock the doors with the key fob as I'm tripping over myself to get out of the cold? I know I can manually lock the doors when I'm in there, but when it's cold...
  4. interior lighting question

    Subaru BRZ Interior Appearance
    Had the opportunity to drive my new 2015 series blue this evening, first time in the dark. I noticed the 3 push buttons to the left of the speedo were dark, is that the way there are? Also the seat heater rockers switches did not light up, (like the seat insignia) a small led came on when you...

    New Member Introductions
    Been wanting a WRX since 2002, but had just bought a Suzuki Esteem wagon in 2001( 5 & 7 yr old kids at the time). 300,000 km later it was time to pass the car to my youngest(we will time share in winter). As soon as I heard about the BRZ a few yrs back, it's what I wanted. So I got it. So far, 5...
  6. 2013 limited HD and RDS radio

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Has anyone been able to get the HD radio or rds to work. The manual says it should display the RDS data but the buttons don't light up for text On stations that work on our other vehicles. Tuning to a HD station gets nothing more then music. Thanks
  7. Experience with Pioneer AVIC NEX Series?

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Hi, Picking up our new BRZ on Saturday. Based on what I've read, the head unit is a prime target for an early upgrade. I've done a few searches but have not found any discussion of the Pioneer AVIC NEX series. Has anyone installed one of these in a BRZ? Is it possible to connect the...
  8. Rust due to rock chip

    Subaru BRZ Exterior and Body
    A couple weeks ago I got a good sized rock chip on the roof of my BRZ (right above the driver's head). Well, it chipped all the way to the metal and has already started to suffer a little surface rust. I am ordering a Dr. Colorchip kit to fix the chip but I want to remove the rust before I...

    Before, the iPod feature on the stock Pioneer did not see my iPhone 5 (iOS 6), now all of a sudden it recognizes my iPhone 5 with iOS 7, but no sound, anyone else experience this?
  11. DIY loose/falling rearview mirror fix

    Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    shameless photo of my baby: So I noticed that a lot of people have been having problems with their rearview mirrors either getting loose, or falling off completely. Should be covered under warranty, so if you have a dealership near you and don't mind waiting for them to fix it, then I would...
  12. Thoughts on interior issues?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Apparently the buttons on the screen are hard to press, the nav sucks, there's no center armrest, the screen is hard to see in the sun, etc... What are YOUR complaints about the interior and will these be addressed in future years you think?
  13. GPS buttons freeze then fly

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Has anyone else had an issue with the GPS buttons freezing? I'll press a button like zoom in/out, it won't respond. I'll try then to push a couple other buttons, still nothing, then it'll suddenly go through what I just pushed rapidly, like it was taking for ever to think. I don't know why...
  14. So you've locked your keys in your trunk...

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I went to try out the cancel trunk button today while on a run. I tucked the RFID part of my keys into my running shorts, then tossed my regular keys and bags into the trunk, pressed the cancel trunk button (small button on drivers side in trunk) and thought I could come back later, start up...
