Linseal's Argento FR-S

Hey guys, some of you know I got my FR-S on the 23rd. I finally stopped driving it long enough to take some pics and talk about the car a bit haha. I LOVE this car. I've never had so much fun driving a vehicle before. The only thing I'm driven that comes close is the MK1 MR2. To me this car is exactly what I wanted, something that connects me to the road, something responsive, something quick, and something that looks amazing. This car is planted, taking corners is a breeze, and a blast. The seats keep you where you need to be at all times. I've only had it for 4 days and I've already driven 400 miles up and down the hills of Austin.

I've been working 2 jobs, 7 days a week for 7 months to save up for a down payment for this car, and it was worth it.

This car gets ALOT of attention. From random thumbs ups to people stopping you in the parking to talk cars.

My advice to my fellow FT86clubers, if you don't already have one, GET ONE!

Congrats on the new ride. How did they attach the front license plate to the grille?

Congrats, the car looks amazing! Is there anything about it that you don't like? Any regrets?

I don't know yet. I like keeping things clean and stock for the most part. Maybe just an intake and exhaust.

they put a mount on it, I'll see if I can get a close up. It doesn't look bad.

I love this beast. If I had to have a complaint, I would say that the seat belt lands on my neck and it can get annoying. I had to get a cover to put on it.

Everything else, to me, is perfect.

Seems like quite a few people are complaining about the seatbelt. Is it possible to adjust the seating so the seatbelt is not digging into your neck?

I don't care for the silver, but it really brings out the lines of this car
