Coming back from the Half Moon Bay MR2 meet today, saw a white FRS.

On the way, saw a blue BRZ with gold wheels and no mud flaps.

(had to add this one) Black McLaren on the way to Half Moon Bay. Hell of a way to spend $195,000....but oh so sexy

I was hoping you'd come hang out on top of the mountain for a bit and chat. Where did you head off to?

I have a Perrin cat back which you can check out here:http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40250

What interested you about the exhaust?
I'm from Sunnyvale, so I just took Page Mill back down to 280. If it wasn't so late I would've definitely chatted for a bit.

I liked that I heard a few little blips from your exhaust and it had a nice note, but it wasn't overwhelmingly loud. The Perrin one is at the top of my list, so it's nice to see that I actually like the sound! Is it the resonated or non-resonated one?

I'll try to come out to some of the local meets. Eventually my plates will read BCUZ BXR once I sell the WRX.

Yeah I try to get up to Skyline on Friday nights between 11 and 11:30. I enjoy driving up there, and hanging out and seeing the different types of cars that come in. Some nights the crowd is a bit young, some nights everyone is mid 20s to early 30s. I just hang out till I get bored. Sometimes they take off down 9 on the SC side and drive really fast so I head home. Everyone is good natured and there's no racing or anything. Hopefully I'll see you up there some night.

I have the resonated version and I'm surprised you could actually hear it! I always thought it was pretty quiet which is why I picked it up. There are a few guys in the nor cal group with different exhausts. If you get to one of the drives or meets, just ask someone to turn on their car and they'd be happy to let you have a listen, inside and outside the car. Its definitely a great advantage to having such an enthusiastic group of owners.

Were your windows up or down when you say you could hear my exhaust?

I didn't realize people hung out up there? Where at?

My windows were down and you must have downshifted because I just heard a little blip. Quiet with a nice tone is just what I'm looking for. My WRX was too loud with a castles downpipe and Cobb catback and I didn't like pulling up to client meetings in it. It felt like such a boy car. I definitely want to keep the BRZ refined, but fun.

Saw a DGM BRZ parked close to me on the second floor of the parking garage in the Santa Clara Convention Center for Japan Expo. Fellow anime fan?

Saw an Ultramarine FR-S rebadged with red/smoke tails, plasti-dipped wheels, shark fin antenna and triangle brake mode on the Embarcadero this evening. Very clean.

Was in my back yard in Monterey and heard someone ebrake skid and looked up to see a black frs. I really hate when people do stupid crap in residential neighborhoods.

Drove to Big Sur today and back. Saw a white BRZ on the way down in the opposite lane going 880N, then saw a Ultramarine FR-S on 880S, driver wouldn't look over.

Then outside of Monterey saw a white FR-S with aftermarket LED strips, then a final white FR-s on Highway 1!
