hi all,

im a current subaru owner, i have a liberty ( legacy) MY06 GT STI, with a few mods. ive had it since new and due for a new car soon, ill be in the US in a week and look forward to taking a BRZ on a test drive.

there not released here yet, we have to wait a few more months, ill more than likely go for a white one and mod it straight away.

looking forward to learning from you guys, and drooling over your cars.

Welcome!

It sucks you guys have to wait months longer than US. I expected Australia to get BRZ's the same time or close to those in the U.S.

Keep us updated on your future BRZ purchase!

Welcome! Australia has a long track record of car enthusiasts, and you all had access to many cool cars that we could not get here in the USA. Let us know how you plan to modify, as it would be cool to compare notes with someone living in the southern hemisphere... Nice to meet you!

Hey guys. I'm from Adelaide, placed a deposit and cant wait for it to arrive. Dealership is talking early July, but can't give me the final list of options being imported. They say that they Subaru Australia are only importing one spec with the only option being leather or cloth seats. I hope to be looking at a shiny Limited spec with leather and full options when they call me up.
Nice to see and hear how things are going down in the US.

Thanks for the info Mrpom. My dealer couldn't tell me the final price, but said that "they would expect it to be something very close to a top spec Impreza around $48K", so i'm hoping you are closer to the mark. Either way it's a lot different to the US price. On the other hand i've also read that it's about $140K in Singapore... go figure.

Now's your chance to finally sit in one, a lot of dealerships should have their demo BRZ by now and will let you get a full look at the BRZ, maybe test drive it too, who knows.

Update us on when you do get to sit in one.

Hi Ogleberry I am only going by suburu and toyotas small press releases stating they would like to keep it under the price of the WRX.Toyota want to keep their ft86 base model the same as the golf gti base which is $38000 so I am hoping the brz is around the $42000 mark.It does sound good to get one for the $25000 like in the US but the US wages are only half the Australian average making them similar prices,car manufacturers call australia treasure island we now no why cheers

Hey Mrpom, thanks for the heads up and i'll be keeping a close eye on their site to check out the pricing. I read somewhere also that Subaru Australia planned to launch the BRZ 'around the same time as Toyota Australia', so will try to get some more info on that too.
