If they refresh it next year, I'd expect a performance bump, but nothing crazy like a supercharger. But who knows if the twins will even get a refresh ? I think it's uncertain. :iono:

The C5Z only comes with base seats. (To save weight I guess) The optional 6 way power sport seats available on the coupe and vert are more comfortable with inflatable bladders and such. Although...

Test drive them both. Then you'll know.

A question...

Towards the end of the video, the reviewer says the ap2 S2000 is a "far superior" sportscar to a stock FR-S/BRZ.

KBB private party value for that car is 18.5k in my area. I don't think it was that low of an offer. Maybe a few thousand less than selling it himself. Which would have gone to auction fees. Or sell...

There is a dealer on ebay with a new red '13 FR-S starting bid 20.9k and no takers.

I don't think 16.7k is that low an offer considering the convenience. I can see them being weary of paying...

ATF is likely preferable to thick gear oil, but yeah we still don't know what it was. But I still would not feel good about it, even if the viscosity is similar. ATF has a different application than...

Dude, I found your source. He put 1 quart of ATF into the engine and was told people used to use that to degunk.
That's a big difference from running straight ATF as a total substitute for the...

Why do you think there is a specified oil viscosity and grade in the owner's manual ?

I'd get the exhaust before a subwoofer. If you want more attention it will get you that, and it's a better compliment to a sports car that a subwoofer.
