    OK, I admit it. I bump the nose in parking lots a lot. Looking for some solutions (yes, I could drive better) like a camera or sensor. Anyone done that?

    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...

    Did anyone else notice a big change in engine noises around 2k or with hot temps of summer? When I take it up to about 6-7k I get a high pitched almost like exhaust leak sound started about 2k but also coincided with 90-100 degree temps. Sent from Free App

    I was on a waiting list for a BRZ in spring 2012. i passed it up for a VW GTI. Obviously, the GTI has an advantage in practicality. Its fairly entertaining to drive and is comfortably finished. Alas, I still yearn for RWD and oversteer. I thinking of selling the GTI and getting the BRZ. Has...

    I'm currently breaking in right now, I've gone over 4000 rpm a couple of times by accident and sloppy shifting once in a while. should i be worried? this is the first manual car i've owned and havent driven stick in a few years. I'm just concerned it will mess the car up! I've been trying to...

    I have been looking to change the HID's from the stock 4300K to 6000K (to match all the bulbs I replaced with LED's) but I'm afraid the daytime running lights will no longer match and might look funny... anyway to change the color on these as well???

    So I bought myself a '14 BRZ Limited in Lightning Red on October 30th. My intention was to purchase a daily driver that I could take out to the twisties on the weekends and the occasional track day. The car was meant to replace my motorcycle, which became just pain too dangerous now that I...

    Hello all, This Tuesday I decided to drive my (almost 3 weeks old) BRZ for a long trip (310 mi. each way) to Rochester, NY! I live in northern NJ so to get to the upstate NY it's pretty much all highways from 55 to 65 mph speed limit. I did not buy my BRZ for its fuel economy but man, I got...

    Hi, all! I've actually been here for several weeks, throwing in the occasional random post. (Not a newb to forums. Just this one.) Yesterday, I put down a deposit on a white, manual '13 Limited. Should pick it up tomorrow night. Me? My name is Steve and I'm 56 years old. I do...

    This chassis is pretty knife edge. Same corner as I experienced this in the wet produced the same snap oversteer in the dry. Highly entertaining but unnecessarily exciting. Do be careful as you explore the limits of this chassis. I highly recommend you switch the traction control completely off...

    Hi guys. While parking at 24 hour fitness, I hit a curb with my brz. The part that hit the curb was the right tow hook underneath the car. I kept applying gas after I hit the curb because I was shocked. There was a huge pillar blocking my right view, so i did not know there was a curb when i...
  16. Subaru BRZ Interior Appearance
    I find the angle of the head restraint is tipped too far forward, causing an uncomfortable driving position. This issue is present in quite a few new vehicles. Even with the restraint at the upper most adjustment it tips my head / neck forward. Is there a reason for this design that I am not...

    anybody notice with A/C on and braking for a stop, the idle drops to 500rpm for a second and engine sounds like a quiet jackhammer? or diesel? it's got to be the direct fuel injection making the noise as the engine almost stalls. any TSB's for this?

    I have scratches on my roof almost dead center in front of the antenna. The scratches aren't really in a pattern.. A few of them cross, one kinda sweeps in from the drivers side then there are random scratches around the center. I almost thought it was spider web strands. I tried to see if I...

    Don't switch off the traction control the first time you exploit the capabilities of your BRZ in the wet! That Torsen LSD is set up very tight indeed.
