  1. Subaru BRZ Exterior and Body
    Hi, what are the benefits and cons of waxing vs opti-coat. I know opti-coat last longer but I hear the shine isn't as nice. For detailers or anyone who has done both, which is better?

    I just put the order in for mine here in Miami and the manager told me there was an order since October and he isn't getting it till April! That's crazy! I told him since I just ordered mine they might as well give me the 2014!

    On Aug. 11, I ordered a BRZ Limited AT in WRB. Subaru picked up the order in Sept., and then the regional rep told us that ATs were not being shipped to New England. On Monday, I got the VIN! It will be in December's allocation. I'm in RI, and the port of entry is a few miles away!

    9/15/13: The last of the BRZ has arrived from port. All other BRZ's are now in-stock. At the same time, our first 2014 has been allocated!! Ironically, it's the same package and color as the last 2013 we received... how fitting! As mentioned with last update, in face of having too many BRZ's in...

    I have been following all the press on the BRZ since it started. I recently retired and living in Rome until next spring when I will return to my home in Massachusetts. I have a 2004 MINI Cooper S JCW that is hibernating in my garage in Massachusetts. It is a great car, but it looks like the...

    I don't know about eveyone else out there...but I am not waiting any longer. I ordered my DGM Limited back in April, just got a call from Subaru. They said I'm on the waiting list for AFTER November. FA-Q Subaru! I don't think so! I got on and found 199 BRZs for sale NOW. I found my DGM...

    WOW - Very different animal My 2007 Legacy GT was a fantastic car and saying good bye after 7 years was very painful. The BRZ is not the practical, powerful GT, but it gives me palpitations every time I take it out. I am on the look out for sharp corners to experience the grip and balance that...

    Basically, I just found this video on the ft86 forums and I'm re-posting here. It shows the BRZ driving in snow after it shows it on dirt.

    I would like to lower the BRZ and close some of that gap in the wheel well. The reason I haven't is because I want the ground clearance for New England Winter. My friend says to get some coilovers and then raise the car come winter. I don't know much about cars but I swear I recall reading...
  14. Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    Had a heck of a time polishing and waxing the BRZ tonight. The few bug guts that got on it Saturday where washed off and the surface clay bar'ed. Polished it and then waxed no avail the guts have already clouded over and etched the clear coat. The tag on my microfiber towel put a nice...

    Wonder if someone can confirm this.....I read over at the FRS forum that from this point on, since the summer is winding down, all FRS/BRZs from the factory will be coming with All Season Tires instead of the Summer ones. Anyone know if this is true?? (since I live in the northeast and my BRZ...

    I finally got my premium CBS AT BRZ in New England. I know getting an automatic is considered sacrilege but I have my reasons. This whole process took about 5 months of waiting and working with 4 dealerships (2 of which I had money down with). It was utterly painful since none of the...

    I just noticed at 6am a ship named Cougar Ace docked at Davisville Port in RI. It looks like it came straight from Japan. In 2006 it needed to be rescued and 4700 Mazda were destroyed in the process. This is not an NYK Line vessel which has shipped many Subaru to the US including the first...

    I chatted online with a representative from a dealership and she scheduled an appointment with the internet service manager. He was supposed to call the next evening. He did not call. I called the following evening. All of the salesment were out of the office. They all went to a car show...

    What does it mean if inventory on a Subaru dealer's website says "In Transit"? I've noticed a number of dealers in the northeast have listed BRZ's as "In Transit" as of last Friday (20 July).
