I thought I was taking a big risk having my 2014 FR-S be my only car in Ottawa. I still have it, and it's on its 7th winter right now.

With winter tires, I'd say it's roughly as good as any FWD...

I only "rotate" when I'm changing between winters and summers. The least worn go on the back, and the most worn go on the front.

Thanks, it sure has! I miss the loitering back when our cars were new.

I should pop by your shop, I saw that you moved to a new location!

I'm just glad the platform is still in production, and still has the RWD+manual formula, even if I don't buy another one myself.

I wonder what the real reason is? By 2014, early production issues were gone.

Surely the extra 5HP, non-defunct brand name, and (even-)higher cruise RPM aren't worth thousands of dollars...

Will be curious to see what my '14 fetches when I almost definitely put it on the market next spring.

FR-S Ultramarine, 108km, minor fender repair (repair looks 10/10). Otherwise in great shape.

Plugs from Toyota: $136
Local shop to do the work: $449

Getting this done in the winter on the same day we get high winds and 1.5ft of snow: priceless.

Prices in CAD, after tax.
