Hi everyone! I知 very excited to be a part of the FR-S/86/BRZ community! I致e been wanting one of the twins since they were first announced. I had made a promise to myself before the twins were announced if Toyota made an affordable sports car again I would buy one.
Some of my previous cars; 2002 WRX (what a great car), 2006 VW GTI, 2009 Corolla XRS, and a few others, a Tacoma and some other Corollas. My FR-S is my first proper sports car. So I知 looking forward to the experience!

Smile Hello from San Diego

Hi All, long time lurker, first time poster. Bought a 2015 FR-S last year, Installed JDL headers, IRP Short Shifter, and running an E85 stage 2 tune using OFT, all through the guidance of this forum! Hope to contribute in any way I can.

Finally bought an FR-S about a month ago and I知 just getting around to posting. I rolled the dice and bought a 13 that has been modded some and has around 70,xxx miles. It痴 a second vehicle and I like working on my own stuff so not too worried. Throw out bearing took a crap so I replaced it, put in an exedy stage one clutch, verus clutch fork, and pivot point and got it back on the road today. Hopefully for many more miles of enjoyment.

Hey everyone. I'm new to both this forum and FR-S ownership. I bought a raven-colored 2013 auto two weeks ago. It has 156,000 miles on it葉he most I've ever seen on an 86 by a country mile傭ut it was stock, well-maintained and I got it for a bargain.



I'm not much of a "car guy" (thus the auto trans). More into guitars and video games, but I fell in love with the FR-S the first time I saw it and I'm ecstatic to finally own one.



Located in Cincinnati.

Welcome to the club @86AutoNoob.

There are several of the cars on here with 150,000+ miles on it, mine included at about 153,000 as of this morning. Just shows we love to drive our cars, very few garage queens here.
