    If this is true the resale value of the BRZ could be pretty good. From the article: A new report coming from Australia indicates the Subaru BRZ might not receive a second generation. It seems the Subaru BRZ could be terminated after only one generation in the event that Toyota and BMW will...

    I'm going to go purchase a 2014 this upcoming weekend. I have the choice of manual and automatic in the colo that I want. My only question is...does it matter which one I get (aside from price.) Will I be missing out on anything if I get the automatic? I commute every day, so driving it would be...

    P0019 P0351 P0300 P0011 P0021 P0016 P000A These are my engine codes. I have seen them 6 times in the last two months and four of those times they cleared the engine codes and claimed they could not find them. The car has made tinging noises, bucked, jumped, rattled, popped, completely lost...

    I can some similarities between the two. The new WRX has a lower more aggressive profile. Looks like the BRZ's fatter big brother. What do you guys think?

    1. Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ ($25,710 for FR-S, base and as tested; $28,265 for BRZ as tested) To me, the highest accomplishment is designing a special car that nearly any new-car buyer can afford. This pair of genuine sports cars — virtual twins jointly developed by Toyota and Subaru — seem...

    Would you recommend this modification? What is the sound difference (outside and in) with just the axleback versus with the downpipe? Do you pull out the resonator tube with this modification or leave it? Any noticeable difference in engine or powertrain performance? More power? Gears...

    Which car manufacturer should Subaru work with next on a joint venture vehicle? My vote is for Porsche. I'd love to see what the two boxer engine manufactures come up with together. I'd love for that car to be an ultra light car, 1500 pounds weight or less.

    Do you agree with that statement? Do you think the BRZ will go down as an iconic car? One man's opinion
  12. Subaru BRZ STI Discussion
    Even before the Subaru BRZ made its debut at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, we were given a taste of what the people over at Subaru Tecnica International (STI), Subaru’s go-fast division, were planning for the car thanks to their unique BRZ Concept - STI. Then, at the 2012 Australian Motor Show...

    That is a pretty strong resemblance. Unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the Lexus LF-CC Concept is a stunning design executed on familiar bones. Lexus is using the Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S /Toyota FT-86 as a platform for their next sporty hybrid coupe. This is no mere one-off concept, the...

    So I put a deposit in on a BRZ that the dealership said was coming in the next week, brand new. I get a call yesterday saying that they got word that the car is a listed as a dealership demo and has 150 miles on it and by the time it gets here about 300 miles (they are driving it down from new...

    Looking into performance upgrades for my BRZ, decided to start with intake and exhaust. Options so far seem very limited. The only intakes I found are from Injen and Takeda. I haven't started looking into exhaust kits yet. My question to you guys is: do I wait for more options to appear on the...

    Thought everyone here might appreciate this from the Toronto Tuner Syndicate: "Apparently there was 3 written off in the first 4 days it's was available ... It's a very light car and very easy to kick out the back end ... Guy from the dealership was saying if you have never driven a real...

    Usually, at any dealer, when you go in and try to do the financing paperwork for your purchase/lease, they try to sell you add-ons (extended warranties, clear pain protection, etc.). For those that have purchased or plan on purchasing the BRZ, what did you buy with it? Does it make sense to...

    I have only seen a few gas stations with 93 octane. So far Shell,ConocoPhillips, BP, and SAMs club, or if push comes to shove put in 91 with octane booster. I'm liking the way the 93 feels. Hopefully this will start a thread of some in your area.

    Thought all you engine techies would like this. so I present a picture of the Crankshaft showing that it is flat plane crankshaft....which should help the exhaust guys tuning and the "Ferrari esq, superbikes-R1, CBR 1000" sound. also means that engine vibration is cancelled by each piston...
