Iím really looking forward to the STI goodies from Subaru, and the GR stuff from Toyota. I think there will be a little more ďfriendly rivalryĒ between the two cars this generation.

I noticed that with my FR-S, even though it has good visibility for such a small and flat car, the left side blind spot especially you have to be careful about. BSM would be very helpful.
