The ugliest part about the BRZ is that damn Grand Am spoiler. I couldn't get rid of it fast enough.

Why look at photochop pix when I can just look at my car whenever I want to.

Would be nice to get this and apply it to my '13 BRZ.... sport mode still too much of a nanny.

The stability control system thresholds are raised to further improve handing. The results are dramatic enough for Subaru to change the name of “Sport” mode to “Track”.

Would you be able to maybe flash the 17 brz ecu map/ecu update like a dealership update?

new 86

I went to test the 370z and you guys are right, it is ancient. and your right again about how fun and nimble the twins are. I just got back from a week in the Virginia mountains. I spent 2 full days running the mountain switch backs and had so much fun. this car has lots of power especially when the turns are 25-40 mph. after a while I concluded a Porsche etc would be no better on the turns.
damn that car is fun!!.

Anyone have a clue about what a good deal on a 2017 BRZ Sport-tech is going to be right now - $1500 off MSRP possible?

I saw the 2017 and didn't like it. I was fortunate enough to find a brand new 16' though

I got invoice + 3% + $1959, then tax on top at one of the GTA dealers. PM me and I'll send you my sales person's contact...
