Talking Crap. Now I have done it.

My local Toyota/Scion dealer finally received an FRS that wasn't sold before it arrived and they gave me the call to come take if for a spin. I was worried that after all these months of reading magazine articles and this forum praising the car that I would have built it up too much and be disappointed. I WAS NOT! This is a seriously fun car! I need to wait a little longer before pulling the trigger but, I have to say, my mind is pretty well made up.

It definitely doesn't have that acceleration punch of some other cars in the price range, but run it through some corners and I wouldn't want to be in anything else. It's just super fun, planted, and great to drive. Probably one of the best car's I've driven, including ones that cost 4 times as much.

My Two Cents...

My Mustang cost a little bit more. It's also faster. But it's also a lot less fun to drive.

Everything was perfect except the color. I am also trying to figure out if I want to wait for a 2014 model.

Oh, God…

That didn’t take long.

You’re not going to start up, again, are you?

The FRS/BRZ are junk. You were hypnotized by the dealer. It was all a dream. Slow and cheap.

lol, honestly, I came from a 500 rwhp cobra and I was told I would regret the swap. Friends and family alike. I have not regretted it a single day. The FRS/BRZ is better than its hype. I was hooked after my first test drive. There is something about this car that is SUPER addicting! As said before....welcome to the dark side

I tried finding a replacement for my Integra Type-R for probably 3 years. Drove tons of "fast" cars, but they just weren't FUN.

Took the brz out, and by the 2nd corner, I knew it was what I'd been looking for. It just puts a smile on your face at every corner. And even when below the speed limit.
