x2. I saw a few for sale posts in the classifieds, but nothing that caught my eye as being suspicious...

Hi guys, I'm thinking of buying a new 2015 Series.Blue sometime soon and wanted to get some feedback on whether it's worth it. I feel like I could get it brand new for 27k. Or should I just go with a Limited for 25.6k? Also, I drove stickshift like once 4 years ago (after a 5 minute lesson drove a car with no 2nd gear for 120 miles, 60 of which was traffic), should I try to get some experience, or do you think I can just learn as I go?
How's the winter driving in Chiberia with brz/frs?

Thanks!

P.S. I'm from NW Burbs, so if I get it - i'll be going to these meets!

In terms of the Series.Blue vs. Limited, the only input I have is if the added features are worth the cost to you. Now onto the discussion of getting a manual, I say go for it. I had hardly driven a manual in years and I picked it up super quick when I bought my FR-S. The easiest way to learn is being forced to. And from what I've heard, the clutch in the Toyobarus is sometimes more difficult for people to get used to when they're coming from a different manual car. Not having driven one in a long time, you won't really have a standard to weigh it against. I found it to be a very forgiving car to get used to daily driving a stick in.

Haven't driven mine in the winter yet, but from what I've heard you will be just fine with a good set of winter tires. I just picked up an extra set of OEM wheels and will be ordering winter tires soon. You'll be fine.

Oh, and welcome! I'm in the NW suburbs too, so I look forward to seeing you out there!

Clutch in these cars is stupid easy to drive on. Decent car for learning.

Thanks! Yeah, I already looked up wheels and tires on tirerack, so I might even go to South Bend to pick them up to save the $100 on shipping. I was looking at steelies with blizzaks, but decided that for $300 more I can get some decent alloys (sparcos), so the total will run at 1k for wheels and tires.
Now the biggest decision making comes in - to get it or not.

Thanks for the input!
