Its funny how the GC tied with the Miata. I guess they both had ups and downs that leveled out.

I trust R&T far more than any other automotive magazine. One of the reasons is the informative data panel from test drive articles. Here's the link to the one for this comparison.
http://www.roadandtrack.com/var/ezfl...d904352378.pdf

I'd add the link to the opening post. If you care about the BRZ, spend some time analyzing the stats in this PDF.

Also the BRZ looks better than the other two.

How in the heck did the BRZ lose in storage space to a freaking Miata, by no small margin either...

I know it is subjective but I don't know how they found the Miata to be the best looking. I've always thought the Miata has remained one of the most uninspired looking cars year after year.

Edit: Disregard all that, I'm a moron.

I'm an idiot.

I wish the BRZ had won transmission. After dealing with my Si's for 5 years I'm anxious to have one that is better. (granted a lot of the Si's transmission issues were related to a poor clutch master cylinder)
