  1. Changed gearbox oil from factory oil to Motul... what happened?

    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    I swapped the factory oil for Motul in my BRZ and the first and second times I drove the car, the improvement was magical. It was such a slick gearbox! But from the third time or so after I took the car for a drive, the gearbox went back to feeling kind of notchy again (perhaps not as bad as...
  2. Heard brz is hard to feel for clutch engagement point?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Hi there :) So I've recently bought a new manual brz, yes my first manual car. I haven't driven it yet as I want to get used to driving a manual before jumping right into it. So I've been driving one of my brother's miata for a month to work and class, and I'm just slowly getting the hang of...
  3. Notes from a BRZ to WRX

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I know, write off the top you're saying totally different cars, you can't compare them, blah, blah. And you're right. But hear me out. I bought the last of my dealer's allocated BRZ's in 2012, picked it up in November in southern Ontario. I loved the whole concept behind the car, followed it...

  8. Floor Jack Suggestions

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    OK, so I've got a Craftsman 2-ton floor jack that I've since 1989. Works fine and all . . . but . . . won't fit under the BRZ. So I need a new low-profile jack. Anyone got one they really like to recommend?
  9. First driving impressions on your pickup day.

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Just curious what was going through people's mind on the first day they took their new brz home.
  10. Test drove it. Came home with it.

    Hey gang. I'm Patrick. I'd consider myself a "car guy". My commute to work is one hour of empty, windy bliss. I needed something fun for under $30k and this car was probably 4th on my list going in. Then I test drove the thing. Game set match. The lack of power never bothered me, even from the...
  11. CEL & idle dip

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    1500 miles and already a CEL This morning on the way to work I stopped and filled up on gas. Then stopped at a friends house to pick up something. When I was backing out of his driveway I got a CEL and the car went into limp mode. Went to Subaru after work and they told me that I had to make an...

    Thanks to jliltd, a truly generous guy who very kindly offered to let me try out his SS1 MT BRZ Limited, I had my first drive in a BRZ yesterday afternoon. I have exactly the same model on order (October had better come soon!), and I was elated to be able to take jliltd's BRZ for a spin. My wife...
