Very nice, he's actually considering the same approach as myself (except for his kids). Picking up an AT to really get into driving and then a MT later. Up until now I haven't had the means to really get into cars all too much.

Again, thanks for the link Ichi. It's been a huge help.

Thanks for the awesome review! I'm glad that you like the blue color too. I already ordered mine in blue and was having second thoughts because of a lack of pictures, but it sounds like it looks good in person. If you have any pictures of the blue car can you post them?

A couple of questions i had:

- How would you comment on the "presence" of the car? Would it stand out on the streets?

- What did you think about the exhaust note?

- what would be your first mod?

k, here's my answers

1. TBH, currently yes. But after that a while no. A while I was driving back from the track and heading to hotel, cop was behind me. He didn't really care at all. I was driving Hot Lava, so it's not dull color here, Bright Orange! You get some attention for a bit from modded car guys, but that's pretty much it

2. Inside or outside? Inside is from intake and I said it, it's quiet when it needed to be and it become loud when it needed to be. As for outside exhaust note, not loud. Prob go for 2.25" exhaust kit, but other than that not loud by any means.

3. Good question. The first mod I will do is Oil Catch Tank. You don't get any gain of HP or TQ. It doesn't drive you faster, just keep the engine live longer. I'll be tracking this car, so I want to make sure oil doesn't go into intake. Boxer engine is well know for that weakness. too much (side) G's, oil will go into the intake and white smoke comes out from the exhaust... & guess what, when I was test driving it, someone (I know who) when big G that oil went up and into intake.

Hope that helped

Thanks Ichi, I started to doubt myself if I should get this car but you reaffirmed that the FRS is the right choice.

Glad to help you out!

BUT don't believe everything I say, test drive it first then decide. When you drive the car and it's everything that I wrote was true, then buy it! Cuz seriously, it's an great car!

Thanks for the review, ichitaka! I was a bit afraid that car will be loud inside; now you removed the last concern.
Now it makes a bit more difficult to wait - in my country GT86 will be available _probably_ in September. Probably, because it is not even announced on the dealer's webpage.

Also they're planning to make an extra filters. So you can make it louder or quieter. Tada-san is making a lot of options for this car, so stay tuned

Ichitaka, you are a dangerous man: you make me think about customizing the car that I can not even order yet!
In "hot lava" colour; red seems to be just a bit too dark (judging by photos). Manual, with small rear spoiler...
