  1. Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I was thinking about putting in a turbo for my car but it'll be costly and it'll take a while because Im still in school. Ive always wanted a turbo car but now Im looking towards to just being an all-motor car. And my target hp is under 300hp

  3. Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    I brought my car in for it's first oil change at the dealership and let them know I have the chirping. It honestly doesn't bother me but they showed me the Subaru TSB for the fix. I decided I would have them fix the problem anyways. I'm bringing it in tomorrow morning and they said I'd be able...
  4. Subaru BRZ STI Discussion
    A story from MT magazine: STI-Badged Subaru BRZ Spotted Testing at the Nurburgring - WOT on Motor Trend It seems a turbo variant will be reserved for the next gen WRX, not the BRZ. Not a fan of the wing spoiler, but that is typical of anything STI.
  5. Subaru BRZ Builds and Projects
    I picked up a 2013 sterling silver premium BRZ this week and while it will be an extremely slow build it will have some goodies added. So far I have hella horns and a set of enkei's. After that it will get mudflaps and then slow down alot. Nice mod will probably be an exhaust and an...

    I just picked up my BRZ premium last night and I already have 178 miles on it. I really like the car, and the dealership I got it from, I have some disappoints though. In my garage I also have a 400whp 240 and I work on almost daily a 414whp 2011 sti. The clutch setup on the brz is just...

    It's just white Plastidip, didn't clearcoat 'em since I'm thinking of painting them pink in the Spring. Looks better in white in my opinion... It's a very clean look.

    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...
  9. Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    I took my BRZ in to get the oil changed last week and alerted the head mechanic about the engine noise (crickets) and transmission rattle I experience. He just gave me a call and told me that he has parts on order to fix the engine noise issue. He explained that it is related to a plunger...

    Without going into every detail of how and why I thought I would tell you about the first real road trip in the BRZ. On our way home yesterday afternoon to Pocatello from Jackson Wyoming on US 89 in Wyoming we hit TWO deer. This completely unavoidable accident could have been a lot worse had we...

    I apologize if this question has been addressed before but I researched and could not find an answer. I have Motorola Razr Maxx and connected the phone to the headunit in the car with no problem. However, now everytime I turn on the car it sends a message to the phone seeking to pair the...

    I tried the manual's listed resolution for setting a custom background image, but there were black bars. So I asked Subaru customer service and they replied today with the correct Navi screen resolution, 480 x 272. This doesn't seem to be published anywhere, so I thought I'd share. - R.
  16. Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    One of the neat features of the BRZ head unit is the ability to send and receive SMS text messages and MMS through your phone via Bluetooth with an on-screen interface. However my phone doesn't seem to allow this. My phone (Verizon Thunderbolt) is less than a year old and supports Bluetooth...

    Has anyone with their BRZ experimented with a .gif image as the startup screen? Been trying to read around and it seems that no one has tried yet (as far as I've read on forums.) I doubt it'd work but it's worth a try
