What happened to all the official curb weights that were just under 2700lbs? What's this 2800lb crap? Were these articles written before the official stats were released last month? (seems likely)

I wonder if I can get the dealership to knock a few hundred dollars off the price of the car for the tires. "hey I want the car but not those crap tires. can you take them off for me? I'll bring my own tires over here when I make delivery."

I wonder how much C&D was paid for the paragraph about agility and the BRZ's understeer...

Many other BRZ reviews have also mentioned the trait of initial understeer so it isn't just C&D.

I think people in the 25 - 35 year age will buy this.

Not unless it happens on the race track then we can't claim insurance.
But! Extra spare parts for me!
