Congrats man! You knocked out the things I want to do immediately upon delivery as well, chrome bulbs and shorty. I like your style. Is the driving experience everything you hoped it would be?

Yes! The power is right as expected, torque dip is noticeable but very manageable. Low rpm power is way better than expected and even cruising in 6th the car responds quickly to the gas pedal. Havent revved past 5k rpms so I really don't know the power that well yet. Having bought this car sight unseen, much less never having seen a single BRZ/FRS in person aside from the ATL Auto Show, all I had to go on were the video reviews and editorials that keep rolling in. Once I drove it, I understood why Top Gear Mag picked it as overall winner for their recent speed week issue against 21 other much faster, more expensive cars. It's truly a fantastic driver's car in every way. Reminds me of my first 944S in the seating position, steering feel, shifter and interior layout, and power delivery. I love it! 105 miles on the odometer so far!

De-badged. 5 minute job with hair dryer, credit card, and some careful pulling straight away from paint and zero residue left behind. Just a quick spray with detailer and wiped with microfiber and done!

Wow! Looks great. I'm waiting for Troncalli to either be granted a supplemental allocation or maybe pre-order a '14.
