I wouldn't really buy a computer now because I heard they have a lot more powerful CPUs planned for 2015

haha..that's if that power boost comes.
hard to imagine that they would even give a significant power boost 2 years after they build an engine from scratch for this platform.

So in the interests of having a better driving experience (and some additional safety) they drop steering wheel controls but they add facebook?

The fix is to replace the pump.... with the exact same one that chirps.

Your chirp will return. May take a week, a month, a year. But it'll come back.

Note that even the article you linked to states exactly this fact.

From your link (from last September, BTW):

The issue apparently affects any FR-S with a VIN# ending in 09026 or lower. Newer vehicles are not affected.

That's news to those of us with newer cars...that chirp. And it's likely that yours is going to chirp again eventually too.

Hmm, so no changes to the premium eh? Sweet. No post-purchase guilt!
