★ Mr.Impreza ~ Urbanized Dreams ~ Fujitsubo Build ★

Welcome ~ Current Status of Car ~


Introduction

Hey everyone. Thanks for taking the time to check out my build thread. If you would like to know more about my build and past, please continue reading.

The 86 is now my 3rd weekend car and I believe this is the one I'll be keeping for the rest of my life.

I purchased the car on the last week of July in 2014.

My build focus;

Lightly enhance the performance/handling using OEM+ parts while keeping it naturally aspirated, reliable and close to the OEM characteristics.
Keep exterior and interior close to stock apart from a few little details such as switching the branding from Scion FRS to Toyota 86 and adding a spoiler to compliment the body.
To me, this car has a timeless look that shares elements of new and old design and I don't want to take away from that.

Regarding my past cars;

My very first sports car was a 2002 Subaru WRX stock. I purchased that car when I was 17 and in the course of 5 years I ended up doing a complete STI conversion. I missed some things though, such as the JDM STI headlights. Anyways, I loved that car, but because I bought it used and was the 3rd owner, I never felt like it was truly mine. In the 5 years of ownership I only put 65,000Km, however on the 5th year, the car was already at 186,000km since I bought it at 119,000Km. So i decided to sell it and make the worst decision ever.
The BMW 335i.
I wanted to jump into a luxury sports car and honestly it was such a mistake. The BMW was unreliable, felt so boring to drive and compared to my Subaru there was no raw driving experience.
I quickly got rid of the BMW within 1 year and bought myself a 2015 Toyota 86 (Scion FRS).

I've always loved and had a passion for Japanese cars and feels great to be back in one again.
The history of the 86, Drifting, Initial D, Keiichi Tsuchiya, etc...are just a bonus on top of an already yummy cake.

Hello 86.

Also for those interested (FRSport Shop Review)

I won't be doing a proper full review until spring though since the car is going into winter storage soon. However I'll install it in the winter so I may be able to get sound clips made. I'll post pictures of the actual front pipe next month when I open it up

You order Catless cuz you already have a Cat?

Interested to follow up on how it sounds with your exhaust setup (full Fujitsubo setup).

Not 86 related, but I bought a 2007 Honda Fit Sport in 5 speed manual!
Only 59,500Km!
Not going to mod it, but I did a window tint on it, 20% all around

I bought it to use as a daily car. Main reason is to keep mileage low on the 2017 Accord Sport.

*Also, I've updated my 86 Mod List*

Nice tasteful mods while still retaining the OEM flavour. That's what I am going for with my build, too.


and Holy Asian Tony Stark!!!
