Where is the OBD port?!?! WORST. DESIGN. EVER.

LOL.

I could not find it.

Every car I've ever owned has OBD on the left side, near the door.
I had to find it on the right side.

After plugging it while sitting in the drivers seat,
instead of kneeling outside the door,
I decided BEST. DESIGN. EVER.

I use VeePeak OBD for $11

Burning question, can you see your OBD port without removing your wheels?

Why would I not? What do you use? I use it for my one of my other cars

I usually set up a laptop with the software. But BRZ is so me I don't expect codes for many years.

Well my windows are tinted therefore I'm a ricer so I probably use a ricer computer to calculate everything.
