No pics, but I agree that they produce a relatively even strong blue/ white light for 20-30 feet ahead with a strong cutoff. However, as you would expect, they fall off relatively quickly. I have...

Nah, now we're confusing demographics. Also a turbo 86 would still be slow.

250-260hp for $30K with 235 tires and a Toyota-sourced 8 speed auto would put a hypothetical GR86 at 3000+ pounds, a...

I continue to ponder my throwout bearing. On cold mornings it squeals until I touch the clutch, then the sound goes away. The colder it is, the more pumps of the clutch it takes it make it shut up....

It looks a little funky to me, but that's to be expect with EVs. The different trims and pricing seem spot-on too. I'm happy they went with a dedicated platform as well. Beating Honda and Toyota to...

I would say that they are neither FWD or RWD. Basically, they use the same arrangement as Subaru. So when you look at the car, it has the proportions and engine placement of a FWD car, but there are...

I think they have to figure out how to get it to that level. Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger all offer a lot for under $30K. The current 370z is overpriced against them, especially in Nismo form.

I'm fine with a quiet exhaust if the engine sounds good.

One reason I went aftermarket was to drown out the sound of gravel in a blender.
