FRS

ended up with an FRS after the original plan used (C63) since gas mileage was an issue not to mention its half the price, and its brand new..and car was so cheap that i can passed it on to my daughter after a year or two , then probably by that time i have many options for my 2nd car.
this car is nothing compare to our M3 but 2 weeks of driving it...its worth the try.

my 10 yr old son took this iphone shot on the day that we picked it up..sorry for the angle shot...i think he's tryin to be creative.....

Some suspension mods on that thing will make it one of the most fun cars you can drive. Nice pick!

Great choice! I've been tossing around the idea of scooping a Galaxy Blue BRZ. Enjoy

What made you get the FRS over the BRZ? If Subaru ever comes out with a BRZ STi version, I may have to look in to that as track toy

These are good on the track? That's awesome. I didn't know that. How does the Subaru variant compare on the track?

there's not much of a difference between the two...but mod wise...im much more interested on making it as a GT86 which is Toyota...and body styling..there's more mods available.plus Hot Lava color is not available in BRZ if im not mistaken
if the BRZ sti version is available..ill get it

IMO there's a premium over the BRZ (they are rarer than FRS). I think those guys at EverydayDriver tested them back to back and said the suspension might be just a tad different (springs).

Also the interior in the BRZ is slightly nicer.

Personally I'd go FRS too. Dealers in my area have markups on them (idiots), plus I'm waiting to see what the BRZ STi will be like.

Modding them is also fairly cheap, you can turn them into a track monster for less than $10K, and that includes a Rocket Bunny body kit.
I wouldn't have guessed. (Well maybe I might have guessed for the Subaru variant of the FRS).

Rocket bunny kit looks pretty legit too.




Like those wheels too.. what are they?

Congrats.
I think she'll be happy with this car. But say "NO" to hello kitty stickers all over when she gets the car.
