Speedometers are not useless.

They don't know or respect his OG status.

1 speedometer is great, 2 is a little excessive.

You guys need to keep in mind, in US we only got 1 grade... vs other countries, they have 3~4 different grades. base model doesn't come with digital speedometer.

Agreed, which is why I would get rid of the digital one.

But much like the styling, to each their own...

I wouldn't have bought the model I have without a digital speedo. In AU the base 86 we call the GT did not (in the start) have a digital speedo, but after trying out the higher GTS spec that did, made me realize it was a must have feature.

If the BRZ didn't have a digital speedo then I would have bought the 86 GTS. Toyota in the very next year after release updated the base GT to have an LSD and digital speedo.

The regular speedo is uselessly small and not as convenient as the digital one. So do you tell me you never use the digital one and actually prefer the analog? When viewed in Kph instead of Miles the needle barely moves.

I also imagine there is localized legislation in every region of the world that stipulates the need for an analog speedo as a set in stone mandatory feature.

Personally I'm the other way round. I'd rather keep the digital and ditch the useless analog one!

Is this 170+/- at the crank? Was the zenki model really that far off the advertised 200hp?

Zenki has 200 crank, puts down 170ish to the wheels.

Ok, that's what I thought..... but all manufacturers advertise power at the crank. If this really gained 20hp, there's no way they wouldn't be rating it at 220hp...
