Im surprised no ones mentioned the cruise control yet.

If that's an option (very unlikely) then i will opt out thanks, i dont need it.

Other then the already mentioned faults im very ok with it, i love the dark interior and in another post somewhere i mentioned i would prefer less red on the interior, US guys and gals must be happy if its around 23-24k>

I have to say I'm quite pleased if this car is going to come stripped out as the base. That only means it will be lighter and more affordable.
Besides, Scion will probably make all the features you guys are begging for available as options.

i love the fact you called it spartan. i was thinking the same thing on like page 3 and almost said "its great! THIS IS SPARTAAAAAN!!!!!" lmao

Screw you scion! You killed this car! The interior looks so freaking cheap and those headlights look worst than a base model 350z.

Why scion why?
No push button start?!?!?!? The climate controls look straight corolla ghetto!

Subaru you got my money...

I'm in the same boat. I wanted the Subaru, I've owned three after all! The only deciding factor between the two was cost. And seeing the pictures, I don't think there's a question that the Scion is going to the cheaper of the two.

Oh well, I'll be *quite* happy with the FR-S. It is after all more Subaru than Scion under the skin anyway.

Bottom line the FRS will sell, like it or not it will if not to us it will to the people starting out.

There's always a BRZ if you want more out of your interior... but it's gonna cost you.

If I had to complain about something it would be the red in seats and stitching. Not a fan personally. I wonder if you will be able to get it all in black.

its probably what greddy is doing for gushi's FR-S anyway.
WRX engine might bolt up, but I highly doubt it will fit. None of the IC pipes would work. Would be much easier to just add a FI kit to the motor. 12.5 to 1 compression is perfectly doable on a low boost turbo setup with DI. You could always just put a thicker headgasket in to lower compression if you have to or lower comp pistons and rods if you plan on going with more boost. I have installed plenty of FI kits on high compression Honda ITR motors before and they were fine with low boost. DI is just that much better with the ability to controll fuel to a finer point. I love boost like any other boost junky, but I love the high rpm NA motors to. I believe this car will see plenty of both types in the aftermarket once the car becomes available to the public and I cant wait.

If MSRP is $23k, and there is options, then I'm just gonna walk into that dealer with my Pedophile Octopus Dad and walk out with an FR-S for $26ish OTD with a Push Start and Dual CC. That's how it's going down, April 1st.

News April 2nd: Scion Salesman found brutally violated in back of Dealership. Only lead we have is ink everywhere and the smell of Hibachi in the air...
