It can be rough on bad pavement. Late 2017 and all 18 RS's have revised dampers that help. Even just some inexpensive springs will reduce the pogo effect of the RS, but if your sensitive to it and...

I sold my BRZ because I needed 4 doors and a functional backseat as the kids grew.

What about the new Hyundai Veloster N? Under $30K, good power and torque, not really a traditional 4 door, 6 speed manual, good handling. I'd take one over a Civic SI all day.

I can understand the coupe thing. The BRZ really is a fun little car you just have to decide if the lack of power will be an issue for you.

I know you own a Mustang but if you have not driven a...

If you are going to get rid of the Mustang I think you should also drive an WRX/STI, Focus RS, GTI/Golf R. More practical, all have good handling and plenty of hp/tq, and a little more comfortable....

BRZ

Keep in mind you can almost always negotiate price if they are asking MSRP or near online. BRZ is not new anymore, and I would never pay MSRP.

If you are looking for more power right out of the gate, along with good handling I would go STI, Focus RS, or Golf R. Also consider Mustang GT w/performance pack or a Camaro SS.

FWD cars are getting better though. There is little to no torque steer in a stock GTI w/performance pack. Same with Fiesta ST. Not saying FWD is better or not better, but it is not terrible either...

Yes...

In all seriousness, I think it still looks good, I am just not sure it looks better than the previous gen. I do like the new wheels though.

Chevy, VW, Honda, are just several companies in recent years who have reduced weight in their cars while adding more tech (and usually increasing power).

What do you mean by too small? Not enough backseat room or you just want a bigger car from an exterior dimension perspective? The Camaro's backseat looks as tight or tighter than the BRZ.
