I like his 6 rules. I will apply them when doing big reviews on cars, especially #2, lol.

I don't know what he was complaining about on the sound too. I thought it sounded great.

Well, it looks like a turbo model seems to be imminent if the info is accurate. It's nice that someone has taken the time to look over the details side-by-side, because I can see that over the next few years, swapping parts between the cars to make a version just for you is going to be all the rage.

But—and it pains us to say this—it’s debatable whether the FR-S and BRZ need more power.
Anyone that says that about a bone stock vehicle is not a gearhead.

At a certain point, more power actually messes up the car. It depends on what the goal is. A well-balanced car won't have excessive power that can't be controlled in a detailed fashion.

I wouldn't say omg it needs to have a crapton more power necessarily but, a gearhead is gonna at least do the basic intake/exhaust stuff.

Oh yeah, that I agree. Unless it's pretty close to perfect stock. I mean, my Boxster will lose power with intake and exhaust. Dyno proven, lol.

Just got an email this morning from Subaru saying that dealers are taking pre-orders for the new BRZ.

There are a group of people on the west coast that have been organizing a group buy via some dealership in CA. I think it's been going on for the past month. I do know at least a few others have pre-ordered before then and actually test drove the car. Maybe they just know someone that knows someone though.

A little bird told me some slightly inside information to the local BRZ allotment. From one of the managers over at the Subaru dealer.

Landers McLarty should get 4 BRZs that were sent to them by Subaru. They didn't get a "pick" of the car. No details on date of delivery or final price, but they are coming.

Jealous! And 25K! Sweeeet. That means it shouldn't cost 30K+ for the Limited trim.

You might be surprised what demand will do to your demands. Regal Nissan wanted $15k down for a GTR sight unseen and undriven. And even if you didn't like it upon arrival--tough, it's yours. That was a pretty big determent from me looking into a GTR seriously when I had the cash.

That's typical dealership allotment for new cars, so there's going to be a lot of people flying all over to get the one they want and/or dealer trades.
