Subaru USA's New 2015 BRZ Series Blue with STI Parts has a Placebo Effect….



























Quote:
Straight off the bat, let us tell you that this new blue pill…err…we mean edition with STI parts offered by Subaru USA doesn't bring any horsepower changes to the lightly updated 2015 BRZ, only some cosmetic and aerodynamic improvements.

Keeping the same 200-horsepower 2.0-liter flat four as the regular models, the 2015 BRZ Series.Blue gets a functional aerodynamic kit from STI containing black front, side, and side-rear under spoilers, that are said to contribute to additional front downforce, while new underbody panels reduce the car's coefficient of drag (Cd) from 0.28 to 0.27.

A new set of black-painted STI 17-inch wheels behind which are new red-finish brake calipers round out the look – the larger stainless steel exhaust tips and a shark fin antenna are standard on all 2015 BRZs.

Inside, the Series.Blue gets a two-tone blue and black leather and Alcantara seats with blue stitching accents that also appear on the door panels, black leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as the shift lever boot and leather-wrapped parking brake lever. There's also a simulated carbon fiber center dash and a red-illuminated engine start / stop button with an STI logo.

The new BRZ Series.Blue will be offered in 500 units finished in WR Blue Pearl and 500 in Crystal White Pearl, with sales to start in July. Pricing for the special edition is set at $29,490 with a destination charge of $795, while the regular 2015MY begins at $25,695 (+$795).

Mine already looks like a close resemblance to this, so need to upgrade I guess. I was really hoping for a power increase for 2015, and I do love the Blue stitching. STi seats, fender vents and upgraded tails would have been a nice addition...

However, this is great for all the guys looking to buy a new BRZ

They should have at least throw in the Sti exhaust or springs. but the price is not bad for what you get. hate the interior though..too tacky for me.

I guess Subaru of America and Scion aren't going to push the envelope. But it's probably a good thing for them, as the aftermarket is blossoming with options. Options they don't have to warranty.

Love it! If I didn't already have an FR-S ordered through work, I'd seriously consider this one. Perfect off the showroom floor.

Kind of glad I waited since I had planned on getting the STI mods anyway. I'll be grabbing one. I prefer the blue stitching as well.

Glad to finally see the pictures of the interior. I'm on the fence with the seats though.. need to see the full seat.
