Positive. I added arrows to the pictures to show where the line is that I'm talking about. It definitely in the paint and not shadows or anything. It's visible when there is direct sunlight on that side of the car. As you can see in the pictures, it doesn't follow the body lines and is a little wavy. I'll see if I can get an HD video of it if the sun ever comes back out today.

Here's bigger pics with no thumbnails

see these cars are literally brand new.. now if theres any concerns you may have you shouldnt hesitate to bring it to your dealer asap! and address the problems you may have.. so it can be either be taken care of or documented if its not a known issue yet.. if i had that streak of line in my brand new car i would immediately bring it back! and either they fix it or get another one..

I work at a Toyota dealer so I'm sure it will be taken car of one way or another. I showed it to the service department already along with my taillight condensation, and D/S front speaker grill popping out, told them about the idle issue, and I have some noise that I am not sure if it's normal or not so I had them check it out. They aren't sure what it is either. They want to be able to drive another manual FRS to see if makes the same noise.

haha well let me drive you guys nuts some more ..
there are lines on the top of the car parallel to the front windshield and the back on the roof.
They're less than an inch away from both sides roughly.
also those lines on the rear fenders that should be a line that goes down also (think of a right angle).
apparently these lines are from the paper used to transfer the cars on the trucks

thank you. I had the smell of burning wires coming from the engine when I drove off the lot and was a bit worried, but now that I read this I think I'm good.

I think mine might be doing that neutral clunk. I'll have to investigate it more. I'd like to hear what the guy who had it found out.

No, I mean the one where he was pushing in the clutch in neutral and it was making a noise, not shifting.

I have no idea what can be done about this, and I've already confirmed with with at least 6+ frs/brz owners... but I am going to call it the "infamous moist triangle" in the rear window right above the 3rd brake light. Has anyone reported this one yet?
