STi exhaust is a JDM option only, to my knowledge. Several threads on here about it. Some think it's the same as the TRD unit except it has round tips with STi logo. Very pricey as I recall, $1800 US before shipping, duty and taxes.
(But I'd love one for my tS! Can't stand the thought of those funky flat bottom tips with the TRD logo on my BRZ.)

The flat bottoms work well with a cheap diffuser. Just never clean them and you cant see the logo anyway.

Agreed, but thatís the concept 1, this is the concept 2:

The only thing I want from Concept 1:
Headlights
Wheels
Front bumper

Things to keep from Concept 2 :
Everything else, minus the front fender garnish

This might be a first for me. I like my '13 BRZ more than either of those concepts. They both look kind of chunky whereas my '13 has more flowing lines.

Agree.
They just look like slightly squashed tC's

Yea, I get that. I think I primarily like the "face" better. Also, the Concept I looks more like a GT car and would need more power.

In the end, I suspect MK2 will be either a minor tweak to the current look, or something completely different. There's precedence for that in Toyota (MKI to MKII MR2 for example)

Donít be ashamed of the TRD logo! Lol We have to put up with Subaru logos all over the car. Iím totally kidding, I wouldnít really want to put a TRD exhaust on a BRZ, or an STI exhaust on my FR-S. It wouldnít feel right.
And btw the BRZ tS is bada$$, awesome choice!

To fit in with the rest of the latest Toyota styling cues I would expect it to be garish and over done.

Yea, probably so. I could see if you take the red one, remove the rear doors, adjust the back to compensate for that, and then lower the rear of the hood a bit you would pretty much have it.

Concept 1 was kinda cab-forwardish, but had MUCH lower hoodline and fenders and IMO was a cleaner design.
Concept II looks a LOT like the production car overall. Same cab-midward profile, same bloated front fenders and raised hoodline.

None of them looks remotely like a tC or Corolla to me...

Look from the A piller back. There is a huge similarity. Just push the roof down a bit.
Nobody said they looked like a Corolla...YET. The other pics were just a "what if they stick to the Toyota design cues" scenario.
