Its FAR easier and simpler to use knobs for the fan speed and temp than it is with toggle switches.....heck even flush buttons are easier.
the toggle switches are actually kind of annoying to use in that manner.

In regards to the amenities and such I would be remiss to say this is a toy for me So I'm coming at it from that perspective. It's going to be a track/weekend drive/quick-run-to-the-store-just-for-funzies type of car for me.

I already have my utilitarian vehicles for commuting and necessities. As someone that commutes 80 miles a day I do understand that those creature comforts can mean quite a bit.

Unsure if this is the right place to ask this (I'm new to the forum, throw stones softly please) but I figure my target audience would most likely be in this thread.

I just came into a 2016 BRZ in WRB and I Prefer the look of the 2017 86 Kouki Front end. Is there anybody who is in the SE region who would consider a bumper trade?

Currently new from Toyota they run about 300+ with all the corresponding grilles, bezels and other tat(https://toyotaparts.bochtoyotasouth....mponents-front). Limiting cost to just paint would make this a much more justifiable swap.....

I set my hvac once and was done, then change it in the winter once and done, granted no one drives with me much in that car so dual zone is not adjusted. Could not be easier. People just need to complain, and it gives those who did not get it, a confirmation bias to feel better.

Alacantra heated seats and foglights were reason enough to go Limited. Didn’t like the spoiler. After 8 years I still don’t

The fog lights remain useless

But I do like the little niceties like touch entry and start, puddle lights and lighted visor mirrors. And the auto hvac

I’ll keep my Gen 1 BRZ until it becomes a maintenance issue or the kids and police take my keys.

In the 17+ with LED upgrades, I love the fog lights. There is a SIGNIFICANT improvement in vision on the road sides, which in my area is extremely helpful to watch for deer roaming around at night.
I also appreciate the spoiler on the 17+ much more than the prior, don't mind mine
