My car arrives 27 DEC. I cant wait. I have been on the ropes about the color. My only regret is I wanted to change it to black but its too late now. All good. The name of my project is called "Fade to Black". So by the time I'm done with this project, the car will be all black anyway. :happy0180:

Hell no. I'm grateful for the chance to own mine.

Only regret is the colour..but then I had no choice in the matter. it was either get the car now or wait a few months for the pick of colours

The fact I (and a few others) could have sold for a handsome profit but didn't is perhaps all you really need to know?

Absolutely no regrets and so grateful that I snagged an unallocated one and only had a 2 month wait instead of my original order still waiting for a build date.

Im thinking of selling mine after a month and a half of ownership. Its a great car and im lucky to have it but I thought it could replace my s15 but I cant bring myself to sell it.

My biggest issue with the 86 is that I dont like the shape and size of it. Its too big and bloated looking to me. Im guessing this is due to safety standards with how they build cars now and plus they gotta fit in all the airbags.

@Fussy : Each to their own that's your opinion & I respect that, but imo the S15 looked dated when it was released & was never a trend setter in the styling stakes, let alone today & compared to the 86/BRZ which has classic sportscar lines & looks great on the road & both are of a similar size. Why not keep the S15? I can understand it if it's been worked & you would miss the FI !
