Even the 86? I understand that the BRZs are much rarer than the 86 there?

I think a few pieces of 86 are already here and at least they are on websites. But Subaru - not a damn thing.
86 vs BRZ is depended on local importers, I think that it is different in every country, I don't have any hard data.

I was just curious. Don't see many of them on here. Pretty much just 86s.

series.yellow

That's odd. So the series.yellow is definitely black, wonder why there is different colors.

When I last checked the numbers were: GT86 circa 5.4k and BRZ circa 560 in the UK..

The UK gets the new BRZ from this spring.. I thought that the changes were cosmetic with some minor tweaks to the spring rates and improved breathing but read that the engine has had some work:


Under the bonnet, the 2.0-litre flat four gets new cylinder blocks, a new camshaft and lighter rocker arms.


And only 5bhp increase... going that deep into the engine you would think they could have extracted some more BHP..

I thought the EU 86s weren't getting the upgraded engine due to emission standards?
