More likely it's for the hi-beams.

Isn't the top left "row" above the auto lights, high beams?

My guess is the auto function, then the daytime running lights (LEDs), then just the normal headlamps turned on. You probably push the stalk forward to activate the hi-beams, hence the arrow by the symbol. I could be wrong though.

Ah yes I see now; your probably right. Auto then DTRL then manual headlamps.
Other side is just fogs off/on.

I wanted it to be black but I kind of wanted it to do it myself with alcantara like in my current car.
Wow. Not many cars that I've had, had a black headliner. I like it!

To be honest though, I don't think many people had crawled through the car before I got to it. When I arrived at the dealer, it still had all of its packaging material - white vinyl covering the hood/roof/trunk, plastic seat covers, etc. The odometer did say that it had 138 miles on it though. Everything else looked pretty good, but I didn't check for things like panel gaps in the exterior.
Yeah I was looking through your gallery and noticed the door handle. Hope that's just a preproduction issue.

But I'm glad to hear that everything else seems alright. Thank you for the pictures

Thanks, good to hear. Also, never noticed this before, but it looks like reverse will engage the same way as the WRXs (Lift the ring to engage).

I'm pretty sure the LED "rings" will be the daytime running lights. The functions from bottom to top I'm pretty sure are: off, auto headlights, parking lights, then regular headlights. That's what the setup is on my legacy (minus the auto part). My question still remains, where are the controls for the LED bar above the foglights?

there aren't any controls for them. Nor are there any for the surrounds in the headlight cluster. Just like an Audi, they are on whenever the car is on.

Thanks Grimlock for the insight and the photos!

Has anyone pointed out that the BRZ has a headlight leveling dial between the trunk release and the interior illumination dial? Also, 0W-20 oil recommended, that sort of thin oil is quickly becoming de facto.

Yeah, I was scratching my head about that as well, definitely a bit out of the ordinary, anybody know why they would go with this oil?

wow...a DGM already in circulation for showing at dealers here in the U.S.!! I wonder what model/color the BRZ will be we're going to see this Sat in Hermosa will be?? as much as I like WRB I'm hoping it will be a color we haven't seen nearly as much of.

as far as the interior trim quality: remember this is a preproduction prototype. more than likely this was part of the first batch of cars made before the official start of production. i've sat in a few prepo cars and there are always a lot of really odd things to behold: huge panel gaps, seat doesn't go as far back as it should, stuff missing, etc.

Hmm from checking around there an SWP Limited out In CO, a DMG in MD, Unknown color one In NY, WRB in Houston, There's a SWP at HQ in NJ, a WRB in California at least for this week. That's about all the info I have on BRZ and Dealer location. I would call your dealers to find out if they'll get a demo car in

The Dallas car had the same door handle issue.... Weird.

Lower viscosity oil takes less energy to pump and churn in an engine. Some people think it's bad for the engine or something, but I think it helps on cold starts since it gets flowing faster, at least based on what I've read about oil. Too thick is more of a problem than too thin, because if it's too thick it doesn't flow enough to provide proper lubrication. Something like that at least.
