Age: 35,36 soon.
Gender: Guy
Current Car: 2001 Chevy Cavalier (modded).
Current Preference (FRS/56/BRZ):BRZ limited in Crystal Black Pearl, or Galaxy Blue Silica
Ideal Price: $26-27K.
To High, I'm out Price: >$29-30K OTD.
Other Cars you are "Cross Shopping": Been looking at the Civic Si, Camaro SS1 or LT2 with RS package. WRX, to name a few. Trying to stay under 29K to keep payments affordable, though putting down a decent down payment on the car.

Just hoping I can get lucky and they become available while I am back from afghanistan before I head to my next duty station while I am home on leave for a month. Would like to support local dealers.

If it does not become ready around that time, I am not really sure what I will do. Might just wait till I get to TX but not 100% on that.

I answered ideal price with what I think is a fair price (because ideally it'd be $0)

Age: 41
Gender: M
Current Car: 1999 MX5
Current Preference (FRS/86/BRZ): BRZL or FRS
Fair Price (FRS/BRZP/BRZL): $23k, $24.5k, $27k
Too High, I'm out Price (FRS/BRZP/BRZL): $23.5k, $25k, $27.5k
Other Cars you are "Cross Shopping": none

I initially had no preference, but now that we know the BRZL is only 14 pounds heavier than the BRZP, I'll probably spring for the L. But if the FRS is significantly lighter and cheaper, then I'll probably go for it.

Other Cars you are "Cross Shopping": interesting situation, my fiancÚ and I only have 1 car and need a 2nd in June. So if I go the fun, more expensive route, BRZ is my only choice. If I decide that I should be reasonable and go cheaper and more economical, I'm considering another Impreza, a Mazda 3 skyactiv, outside chance of a Prius if gas goes toward $5. yeah weird situation.
