Yeah, got it in auto because it'll be my only car for work and whatnot. Plus the ex-gf wanted to drive it if I was unavailable...

Anyways, I got the car in white and it's auto with paddle shifters; from reviews, and having drove one in person myself, I've got no regrets...

My stick-shifting playtime is over for now...unless I decide to keep the MR-S in the end lol

i've driven an frs with paddles a couple of time, and its super fun! <3 the sport mode. can't lose going either way in this car, just a blast to drive. i thought about keeping my aw11, but once i got my zn6, i couldn't think of a reason why i would need it. looking forward to what you're going to do with your brz! :happy0180:

Congrats and welcome to the board!

The new tips are from Canadian Tire..."Tuned Performance Exhaust, stainless steel exhaust tip" 30 bucks for each; $67 for both. They're 2.25" Inlet, 4" Outlet. Inlet is a little big for our bare pipes, so you'll need to spend some time adjusting those bolts to make them look right.

These look great for now over the stock tips as they stand out alittle more; not screaming rice, but not tiny enough to be made fun of. Alternatively, you can get the JDM ones which would cost you almost triple the price if you really want that look... For me, this is just a temporary appearance quick fix until a nice axleback I want is out.

Also, I had to chase down a Crappy Tire to get these...haha, I went to three CT and none of them had these. Finally, went all the way down to Richmond's CT on Steveston Hwy and fortunately they had a few left. Happy hunting!

Opti-coating this baby this weekend! We should totally do a small meetup/photoshoot! Perhaps at QE park or down at Granville Island!...Stanley Park??

P.S. I've got a buddy who's pro with SLR cameras and he promised to take some shoots!
