I don't know about the rest of you guys/gals still waiting but depression has reached a new level for me. It has been almost 13 weeks since I ordered with no official date in sight. It would seem my Canadian FRS has gone into a state of limbo (built in May). Whether or not it is because it has been sitting at port awaiting a Pioneer stereo upgrade for three weeks like other Canadians have said my dealer does not know. My current vehicle should have been sold for at least a month, and it is almost reaching time for repairs just to make it road safe. I honestly hope I get good news soon or I might shop and elsewhere, a standard FRS doesn't thrill me and neither does the BRZ front end. Here's to hoping for some decent customer service from Scion Canada, and would hate to leave this great community for something else.

that really sucks my friend. Is this the case for all dealerships in the great white north? Do any dealerships have 10series that you can just buy?

Looking around. With only 125 ATs. Many of the are spoken for. Or dealers don't know anything. I want AT because I have an 50 mile round trip to work, and I'd love the extra fuel mileage.

You can get 34 MPG out of a manual.. right now I'm at almost 25 MPG and that's shifting @ 4K RPM's and a few blasts all the way to a certain speed in 6th gear @ 4500 RPM...

I'm an inefficient driver...

So distressing to hear, sorry for your experience. Hope you get it soon, we read here that A/T's outnumber M/T's 2:1 so please wait, it will be worth it.

@Luis_GT, it only gets better. Still maintaining <4Krpm I went from 20 mpg to 25.9 mpg during the first 500 miles on technical mountain roads constantly accel/shift/braking to a freeway run out to the East side of the Gorge @ 3.5K rpm+ in 6th and got 29.8 mpg.

Of course these will prolly be the best numbers I'll ever see. Once broken in it's eeeehaaa time. As good as she sounds now and as throttle response constantly improves, I'm really looking forward to the 1K mile break-in when I'll change out to Red Line 0W-20 and let 'er rip.

So, do it. You won't kill your car. Break in is more or less pointless anymore. Numerous threads on this.

Obviously any of them besides Five Axis and OEM Scion spoilers have to be painted by a local shop (since these both can be ordered factory painted from dealer). There are some that require drilling and those that just stick with 3m.

I wanted a GT86/BRZ Limited in Silver Ignition but I have my doubts due to having to get it paint matched, and drilling into my bumper. Five Axis seems like a good deal considering it can always be remove it in the future, and install seems fairly easy for DIY.

Noticed these weren't in that thread:
GT86/BRZ Limited

OEM Scion Spoiler

Comparison
I personally think that the rear end of this car needs a spoiler. It just looks kind of unfinished that way. Although I wouldn't go so far as to say it looks like a Prius =P

My preference was for the GT86 spoiler, but since I was getting a small discount on the Scion OEM spoiler (15%), I essentially got the car with it. In my mind, it wasn't worth trying to order the GT86 spoiler, trying to paint match it (not sure that would be easy with our paint colour), and then having to install it. For $500, I got it installed.

In my mind the Scion OEM spoiler looks kind of like a cross between the GT86 spoiler (my preference) and the 5-Axis (which I had been considering before).

FiRStsc10n - hang in there buddy! The car will be worth the wait. Don't let the whole Scion Canada corporation ruin this car for you.

If the dealer doesn't know anything, can the head office tell you any further? Wondering if you can track it by VIN#?

I know of one in BC in AT that is at a dealership in Vancouver if you are willing to come out here
