Not hard to disagree with the review as its pretty much spot on.

Perfect balance here would be to save the money on the pointless TRD cosmetic crap upgrades and get a base model. You could spend less than half of that 6500 of TRD upgrades on things like intake, exhaust, and tune (or maybe even lighter wheels+tires and tune) to get a decent boost in performance.

Anyone that would pay 30k pounds for a GT86 is off their rocker!

I love it that they used the same word to describe the TRD package as I did...

pointless.

The 'not-so-secret-sauce' would be to install BRZ OEM rear springs in the GT86 and re-test. Or just throw a BRZ out there to see how the comparisons would change, if at all...

I like this guy's opinion of our car......

Really I don't care about all these our people saying this and that about the FR-S/BRZ i'm happy with my bang for the buck ride.

Just the fact that my $27k car is compared to a Porsche regularly makes me happy about my car purchase. It's not as fast, but for the money, you really can't beat the combination of a perfect daily with amazing performance.

Finally the comparison against the base Cayman, and not the Cayman "S".
