  3. Looking to purchase a BRZ

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Hey guys, I'm looking to purchase a 2015 pearl white Subaru BRZ (leather + 6spd). I have driven one and find it enjoyable for a daily driver.. it is an extremely slow car but I think I will live. The main thing I'm worried about is the 2016 model being radically different. I always hear rumors...
  4. Just got a BRZ, I'm new to manual, and 1st gear is proving to be a challenge.

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I got a 2013 BRZ manual transmission yesterday. I've got about 2 hours of practice (half solo) and I constantly screw up getting into first gear. Once I'm in first I have no problem going to 2nd or 3rd and back down. I've watched a lot of youtube videos and had a friend ride with me for about...

  6. Heya!

    New Member Introductions
    I'm a new 2014 World Rally Blue BRZ Sport Tech owner, painfully starting the break-in. I might have 100 km on the odometer by now, but I wouldn't bet on it. I also have a 2007 Impreza Wagon which I'm keeping for the Canadian winters. I did a silly thing and ordered the OEM Kicker subwoofer...
  7. 2014 WRB Journal

    Subaru BRZ Builds and Projects
    Thought I'd start a journal on here to keep track of the slow-going updates on our BRZ. I get excited about the car just looking at it, as well as seeing everyone's take on what they improve/update on their cars. Quick Information: 2014 WRB Limited 6MT As of today, just shy of 800 miles Stock...

    Hey, everyone! Finally going to post a handful of photos of our new car. I've learned a lot from this forum and hope to learn tons more. Mods will be relatively slow-going and light while under warranty. My wife and I are loving this car! Subaru BRZ Limited by midnightrook, on Flickr Subaru...
  9. Should i get my BRZ

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    the obvious answer from you guys would be yes... however, i would like to know if i am getting a decent deal. I visited my subaru dealer yesterday and after a test drive and blah blah blah, he offered me $25,800 for a black 2014 brz limited. of course i know the rule to never buy a new car...

  11. Is there a rear airbag sensor?

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    Took a sliding Camry to the back bumper this morning. Amazingly, no damage, not even a scratch. I'm estimating 3 MPH by the butt dyno and the 2 feet my car slid after being hit. My first thought was wow, someone hit me. My second thought was wow, no airbag. Does the BRZ have a rear airbag...
  12. FS: Motegi Racing TRAKLITE 16x7 with Kuhmo Ecsta XS

    Subaru BRZ Classified Forum
    I have a set of almost brand new Motegi Racing TRAKLITE professionally mounted and balanced with a set of Kuhmo Ecsta XS tires. This is a perfect track setup. I used it for one HPDE event and it was raining that day so I only did 2 sessions going at a very slow speed so essentially these were...
  13. Trouble Shifting Into 2nd Gear

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    I have a '13 BRZ with a manual transmission and less than 2k miles. I am having a problem where when it is cold outside and I just started the car it is nearly impossible to move the shifter into 2nd gear. I have no problem going into 1 or an other gear but going 1 to 2 or 3 to 2 I have to...
  14. 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...
  15. Unexpected understeer?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    So my experience with this car is that when you push it to its limits, it's much more likely to go into oversteer than understeer. However, today I was driving one of my favorite back roads that I hadn't been on in a while. I saw a sharp right hander coming up, and thought I'd have a little fun...

  18. Iteresting Cruise Control Feature

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Interesting Cruise Control Feature On a road trip this past weekend I learned something about the cruise control in the BRZ. Now, everybody knows if you are going with cruise on and press the Accel/Decel lever it will continue to slow down or speed up until you let go. Did you know that if you...
  19. Transmission thud into first gear?

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    New BRZ guy here; 5 days and less than 150 miles on it. Today, I noticed that when I go into first there is a pronounced thud that my wife/passenger also can hear . For example, when sitting at a stoplight I will put the car in neutral and release the clutch. When the light changes I depress the...
  20. Did my first track day with the BRZ

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Today was a great day. I ran my car at a HPDE at Atlanta Motorsports Park in basically perfect conditions (55 in the morning, 72 high). 15 minute sessions with an instructor in the morning, free lunch and drinks, then 20 minute sessions in the afternoon. My current setup seemed to work really...
