BRZ Premium @ Stohlman Subaru (Tysons Corner, VA)

Just heard from my salesguy...who called to say that an SoA rep just arrived with a Galaxy Blue BRZ Premium. No test drives...but at least you can sit in it, take pics...etc.

I just got home from work...but I'm tempted to head back out. He told me that it will be there for the rest of the week. We'll see...

Any clue if it's going to be an automatic or manual? Sure hope it's a manual.

Not sure on that...yet. I'm planning to swing by tomorrow during my lunch break and will report back.

Fingers crossed that it's a manual...

Nice. This thread is full of Mid-A GTI owners.

I may try and keep mine through the winter. It will be out of warranty next February...so I may sell it then and buy a beater to be my DD. Dunno yet.

I've enjoyed my 2010 GTI immensely...even more so than my 2006 MKV. Best blend of fun, daily livability and practicality that I've ever found. Never had any reliability issues either.

I'm going to head out to see the BRZ in about 2 hours...can't wait!

Yeah, i love my GTI but sadly got a DSG instead of a manual. Its basically the only reason i am considering letting go of the GTI.

Let us know if it's a manual or an automatic! I'll be more inclined to go today rather than later if it's a manual.

I know I'm in the wrong region, but I just wanted to say I had a '10 GTI too It indeed was a good mix of everything, though I have to be honest, I like my TDI more. All that aside, the BRZ should be the real deal, at the expense of being able to haul people and tons of stuff...which I'm totally OK with.

It looks like it's the one that was in Silver Spring last week.

Premium GBS Auto. Some pics I took of it:

Yep...must be the same car...and yes, it's an automatic. [sigh] They had it parked out front, under a tent. A salesguy unlocked it for me and I had it all to myself for about 15 minutes. The Galaxy Blue is simply stunning!

It's about the same footprint as the GTI...but about 8 inches lower. The seats are very nice/comfortable/supportive but the center stack in the Premium is all business...no worries. This car isn't about fancy buttons and knobs. I was concerned that I'd want an armrest, but the side bolster kept my arm much further forward and it naturally rested on the parking brake. No biggie there either.

The backseat is very tight...but this we know. I'm pretty sure that my 9 year old will be able to sit behind my 5'2" wife in the passenger seat...but my 6 year old may have her legs pinned by the seat. I couldn't accurately simulate how much room I'll need for my left leg being that it was a slushbox. I'll make it work. Overall...it has presence and a look of purpose. This thing is gonna be a blast!!

Just a heads up that Farrish in Fairfax has a Dark Gray Limited manual in for test drives. They sent out an email a few weeks ago that it'd be in and I just test drove and put my deposit in today.
