Ok, so some early driving and owning impressions.

Legacy cars:
Honda CRX SI (B16A)
Mazda RX7 Turbo (10th Anniversary)
Honda Prelude SI 4WS
Mazda RX7 Turbo
Mazda RX7 (3rd Gen)
Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V
Mazda RX-8
Honda Prelude
Porsche 911 (996 C4)
Acura Integra GS-R Turbo (Track Duty)
Acura TSX
BMW M3 (e46)

BRZ - If I could sum it up..."works with nature, not against it." The lightweight boxer layout just offers so many advantages to all aspects of performance. As my Porsche friends say; "There is no greater luxury than performance."

I'm extremely impressed with the car and how well engineered it is. In it's stock form the chassis is incredible. I prefer a little more lateral grip, so I'll be eventually throwing some wider wheels/tires on. The gearing is awesome, very well done. I love the throw of the shifter, you can really bang out shifts in this car. The car has great responsiveness and a nice little punch of low-end momentum for being a pretty weak 200hp. I was afraid it would feel very week down low but not the case. I'm still breaking it in (only had a few days), so I'm looking forward to being able to go over 4K RPMS with it.

The best car I could compare it to in it's stock form as far as handling characteristics is the Porsche Cayman S. I actually think if it had comparable tires, it would have a better handling feel. Coming out of a M3 with competition brakes, the braking isn't quite as forceful. My only knock is I want an armrest and I wish there were a storage unit or two in the cockpit. Otherwise, cheers, very happy with the purchase and love my BRZ!

Yeah, I think my only adjustments would be a lowering the road noise a little bit, I love my BRZ.
