    Hello all. Well I did it this Monday. Traded in my 13 CR-Z on a new 17 Yellow edition. Picked it up with 80 miles on it and now have about 250. Have already installed the STi front lip and factory sub. The STi side and aft spoilers are on order. Have ordered the FT86 speed factory non aggressive...
    Snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures make winter driving treacherous; nevertheless you're prepared, right? But what about your wiper blades? If they're the same ones that baked on your windshield all summer then you could be in for problems. How do you know if your wiper blades...

    There's a odor that is coming from the AC/fan unit and I think it is coming from something in the air ducts. Where does the car take in air for the cabin air AC/fan unit. I looked at the air filter in the glove box but it doesn't smell weird. Jeremy

    So i recently tinted my '14 BRZ, about a week ago. I chosed 20% all around. It looks great, but at night, I notice that the defroster lines in the rear windshield are more visible. When other cars are behind me with their headlights, It a little blurry/distorted because of the defroster lines...

    I'm wondering how many miles you have on your BRZ and if there are any issues? Since this is a first model year car, I'm deciding between the 2013, 2014, or waiting a few years. I'm looking at a manual.
  6. Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Hi everyone! I am planning on retiring one of my vehicles and was looking at the BRZ. Seems a pretty reliable vehicle and lots of fun to drive. 3 questions for you: 1. What maintenance is required for this rwd vehicle? Oil changes every 6,000 miles or so (Mobil 1 ... 0W20? Or what?) and a rear...

    Just got this Limited brand new bad boy the other day, been loving the car itself! I opted for the metallic gray, but I saw one of those dark blue ones at the Subaru place and they are gorgeous. As for the nav/screen software...well, as someone who writes software for a living, it's a little...
  8. Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    I am wondering if the windshield in the BRZ is of poor quality or do I just have really bad luck? I have had my car for about 6 month's now and in that time I have had 3 rock chip repairs ($50 a pop) and just yesterday, what seemed like nothing more than a grain of sand hitting my windshield...

  11. Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I have read in various forums that when someone buys a new or used car they are encouraged to purchase what I call "add-ons" such as extra warranties, maintenance deals, extra types of insurance for such things as wheel damage, exterior finish protection and on-and-on. The salesperson with...

    shameless photo of my baby: So I noticed that a lot of people have been having problems with their rearview mirrors either getting loose, or falling off completely. Should be covered under warranty, so if you have a dealership near you and don't mind waiting for them to fix it, then I would...

    I'm wondering if the protection plan for roadside assistance, windshield replacement, lost key replacement, and paintless dent repair is worth it? It seems good but just like anything else I'm kinda second guessing myself.

    Apparently the buttons on the screen are hard to press, the nav sucks, there's no center armrest, the screen is hard to see in the sun, etc... What are YOUR complaints about the interior and will these be addressed in future years you think?

    Hey all! Been away from these forums for awhile. Here are some updated pics of the BRZ... :cool:

    This may be a goofy question but hey. When I recently had my BRZ's oil changed for the first time (mid-winter), the dealership I took it too "kindly" topped off my washer fluid. It was either the cheapest crap or it mixed with what was in there from the factory to create a useless mess that...

    A few days ago I totaled my 7 month old BRZ after dropping the right front wheel off the paved road and into a 2 foot deep gulley. After hitting an embankment the car rolled a couple of times. The pics tell the story. BTW, I wound up with only a few scratches and a lot of bruises. The...

    Hello from Tucson, Arizona. Finally decided it was time to get the BRZ. Local dealer said they had a WR Blue on the way but salesperson said it was already spoken for, but they did have a preowned BRZ with just under 10k miles on it-Limited 6MT. Guy who had it got tired of shifting on the...

    My brother was riding with me and noticed the two side windows are a bit darker than the windshield. Almost looks like their tinted yellow a bit. I haven't tinted them or anything. Anyone else notice that?
