On another view you could buy a genuine RS with a unique color and sell the bodykit parts for a decent chunk of change and then you're not out any money when you modify to "better looking" parts. Oh, and you STILL have the color and interior appointments. If you don't see the value in certain versions ok, but what you're saying has no grounding.


You say you bought a 2017 86, why didn't you just buy a 2013 and modify it better instead of spending the money on a new car? - Same argument....basically.

You need to rethink why I bought the 2017 86 BASE model and not the USD TRD model. (Since you seem slow, USD TRD comes with the TRD RIMS for extra $1k etc..) Which makes it an irrelevant argument.
You also basically made my point in where "why buy the RS AND sell its part for other aftermarket parts?" C'mon man.
And why are you guys so up beat on "push start, dual climate control, etc?" There's a key.. Put it in 😂

Complete paint job - 6k minimum
OEM 86 headlights - 1k
OEM push-start/climate control - 1k
Seats - 800
TRD wheel - 200

Roughly 9k, and that's being conservative and not counting exhaust, or lip kits.

Why would you buy the "TRD" oem parts when you can make your own build???

The only TRD specific part I listed was the steering wheel. Aftermarket steering wheels are probably just as expensive.

Isn't the RS 1.0 unique to the US market only? From memory even the TRD body kit is unique and different to the regular JDM one.

Assuming you love the color then (to me) the RS 1.0 is a no brainer considering the OP is not looking to modify in the short term, and if they decide to keep it clean and stock long term, then the car will likely hold its value exceedingly well over the years.

I'm almost willing to gamble that they would get most (if not all) their money back a few years down the line, if selling it to roll into a new car.

I'm pretty sure the body kit is the same that's on the black line edition down there. I might be wrong though...

USDM RS1.0 TRD and the australian Blackline kits are the same down to the side vents.
They're different from the JDM TRD one.

Some people usually the younger folks imo only care about how the car looks from the outside. Nothing wrong with that just different generation / culture.

I for one would never buy the base model as it is to me a decontent car deviating from the original intended design. For example to me the manual HVAC center console looks like an afterthought, as opposed to cars like old Hondas where controls are usually well integrated regardless of trim level.

Yeah, but there is a difference between modifying your car with quality aftermarket parts and using cheap knock offs. A lot of younger people are quick to buy parts only to realize that they don't look good up close, or start falling apart after a couple months.

A lot of used 86s on the market will have replica wheels, tacky wings, and be covered in plastidip.

I'm a sucker for quality parts especially coming from the factory.

RS 1.0 is quite rice and I have no idea what sort of options we got here with the NC but something like this yellow one would be very nice.
