I totally agree! :happy0180:

Neither of us will go to the dealer, but some will.. for those I think I'd pick a Subaru dealer for this car :P

I've been lurking here since FT86 I came out, recently registered, and here goes my first post now that the Scion version is out.

If LED headlights and GT86 console (head unit, HVAC) aren't options, this car is a no-go for me. Lot's of people here making comments about how those things aren't important...just because you don't want them doesn't mean someone else doesn't. The similarities between this car and the BRZ are going to be obvious to most people. If BRZs start popping up with trick headlights and nicer interiors, it's going to look bad for Scion to the general consumer.

The BRZ and GT 86/86 have a bit of a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing going on: Bad boy fun toy to drive, but a somewhat understated look with a top notch interior. This, to me, broadens the appeal of the car as you might have 40 or 50 something guys getting into this car and feeling like they don't have to go without certain creature comforts.

If Scion sticks with the crappy interior they have now and don't offer options, I think it's going to severely limit the appeal of this car and I think Subaru will do better with the BRZ, even if it is more expensive.

I hope its an option at least. But It does look like they trolled the parts bin for a normal once (also good for keeping the price down)

Damnit people it is not hard to figure this out, FRS = low spec and BRZ = high spec. So if you want to spend a few grand more on options then just go buy the BRZ and stop bitching about the Scion.

Thanks for the answer on that question. Last year I was looking at the Mustang until I decided to drive my truck into the ground and pay down all my credit cards and loans instead. Dont owe a dime on anything now.. I'm keeping the truck and will put a hefty down payment I've saved, with no trade in for this one instead.. Wont be too bad, as the gas mileage has to be way better then the Mustang..

Sweet!

I can tell most of you know nothing about SCION....
CHEAP CHEAPER CHEAPEST:

NO FOGS - does not come with the car but you can get it and let them install it for you at the dealership

CHEAP HU - it might look cheap but that HU is perfect and it does have BT and it works good in my brother's tC
NAV system is available the same way with any other scion... IF you want to pay for it.

LED DRL: really??????????? you guys crying for that tacky ass ricey leds? keep them on AUDIs pls... or just wait for the ricey ebay anzo headlights

HVAC: why on earth you need a dual zone AC in that small car????
yes it did look better, but this one works just as good and it is cheaper.

Mufflers ............... *facepalm................. you can get a TRD exhaust right there when you buy the car..... along with cold air intake, springs, struts etc.....
it will be all available the same way how they had it with all the other scion cars.

Heated seat - really???????? just get a lexus and st*u

Some of you really pissing me off with this ignorance.
crying about the price then crying about the car because it looks cheaper.
Best post ever

Im sure its just a legal thing but why show pics of a very simple basic model then have "prototype model shown with optional equipment, production model may vary"

What is so f#$king optional on the car in the pics?
