  1. How wide is possible?

    Subaru BRZ Builds and Projects
    Without fender rolling or doing any body work, how wide can you go with rims and tires? I'm looking to put 18 inch TSW BARDO MATTE BLACK Wheels 9.5 wide all around. Is this possible, has anyone tried this, were there issues?

  3. '15 WRX / Forester 2.0 turbo engine swap?

    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    Anybody thought about the possibility of swapping in the 2.0L turbo from the new WRX and the Forester? The BRZ has a 2.0 flat four, like this engine, so it would should theoretically fit, right? Other people have done bolt-on supers and turbos, so the space that the turbo takes up wouldn't be a...

    Subaru BRZ Exterior and Body
    After alot of research and forum lurking I finally got off the dime and purchased a new BRZ Limited in pearl white. I couldn't be happier with my decision. The car is only three weeks old so I haven't modded anything yet with the exception of having it Opticoated. After some research into...

  8. Autocross/Insurance

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Hey Guys, I signed up for a rally cross event through SCCA in a few weeks, but I am starting to have second thoughts about going through with it.

  10. Worth it to hold out for a 2014?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Hello, I have been looking at the BRZ for over a year now, and have finally made the decision to move forwards - but I don't know if I should hold out for a 2014 or not. I know the differences are very minimal, but I had one question - is the new radio an entire new unit or are they just...

    The kit being sold by Phastek is the real deal, I am happy to report. I just got my kit and had it installed today at a local modshop. Works great and only took about an hour to have installed. Kit was about $70 and the install was $48. My favorite new mod on my brz.:D

  15. Anyone have protection plan, worth it so far?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    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.
  16. BRZ Seat Head Restraint Angle

    Subaru BRZ Interior Appearance
    I find the angle of the head restraint is tipped too far forward, causing an uncomfortable driving position. This issue is present in quite a few new vehicles. Even with the restraint at the upper most adjustment it tips my head / neck forward. Is there a reason for this design that I am not...

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I was all ready to purchase a new Galaxy Blue BRZ from my local dealer, but they first had to find one and get it here.

  18. Auto Dimming + Tint worth it?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    So my BRZ I just purchase isn't going to come with an auto dimming rear view mirror and to add it is around $150 or so. I'm going to tint my rear window 15% and was wondering if it even matter if I have auto dimming mirrors? I feel like the dark tint wouldn't even make a difference if the...
