    It has 25,000 miles on it. Still smells like new and looks new. Very well taken care of with oil changed every 3,000 miles. It's that Subaru blue color. I have one problem. Those three switches on the dash by the tach... are they supposed to light up when the lights are on? They don't. And...
  2. interior lighting question

    Subaru BRZ Interior Appearance
    Had the opportunity to drive my new 2015 series blue this evening, first time in the dark. I noticed the 3 push buttons to the left of the speedo were dark, is that the way there are?

  4. 2.0L FA DOHC H-4 Boxer

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    It's my understanding that the engine uses both direct and port injection systems, but when exactly is it doing one or the other? and does the port injection happen enough to dissolve the carbon buildup on the valves caused by direct injection? I ask cause I'm looking at getting a subaru next...

  6. Cup holder failure = big mess

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I swung by Mc D's yesterday on the way home, and part of my poor choices that day, I picked a 'large' coke. Fitting nicely into the cup holder, I felt relatively comfortable. A few blocks later I came to a stop sign and braked appropriately. The cup stayed snugly tucked into the holder...
