I do love actual go-karts too, rentals are a cheap way to scratch that need for motoring fun.

Hello! I’ve been interested in one of the twins since they debuted. I test drove an early model year FR-S some years ago, but wanted a nicer interior and more features and held off.

Well... I finally made the move on a 2020 BRZ with performance package yesterday and I have ZERO regrets so far. Say hello to our new addition!

Hello Everyone. I just picked up this 2013 BRZ with a Jackson Racing Supercharger kit and bad bottom end knock. I've been running HillClimbs, Time Trials, and stage rallies in a family owned(really my Father's) Subaru WRX for years. I decided it was time to build my own car and my first rule was it had to be RWD. Looking forward to learning here as I build the car over the next few months. Can't figure out how to post the images I have on Flickr so try the link?

Hi everyone! Just picked up a 2013 galaxy blue silica BRZ a few weeks ago. However, not new to Subaruís at all. Been working on Subaru for 10 years now and currently a heavy duty technician at a Subaru dealership. Iíve always loved how the BRZ/FRS looked. After driving so many at work, I fell in love with how they drive and handle. Decided to finally buy one. Waited for the price on them to drop and picked mine up with 51,000 miles! Iíll have to admit that it is extremely slow, but fun to drive. I also have a 2011 Lexus ISF if I ever want to go fast. Anyways, hereís my BRZ.

Hey guys! I'm Charles from Brockville, Ontario and recently purchased a brand new Subaru BRZ TS 2020 just a few days ago. This car will remain stock for a couple years not to void warranty and enjoy the "stock feel". So far I'm really enjoying the vehicle. It handles like a champ, is quite comfortable for road trips, and seems to be reliable. This is my very first Subaru and I'm glad to join the community. I'm quite mechanically inclined and do most of the maintenance myself. I've been lurking on this forum for quite a while and these cars seem quite easy to work on. The resources available online are great!

I have own several project cars including a 2004 Grand Prix GTP, a 1991 Chevrolet Camaro Z28, a 2010 Cobalt SS Turbo and a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT that I sold a few days ago. I have a 2020 Hyundai Veloster Turbo as a daily driver.

I am still a moderator for the Pontiac G8 Board.

Glad to meet you all!

Charles

I feel like I should say something here, I have been a member here for what seems like forever, but during the initial hype some stuff happened, and my dream didn't pan out But things change, and soon I hope to join the owners club finally. Have had a few Foresters in the mean time and am now a Subaru man, plus I like the BRZ front end better, so that worked out nicely. Anyway, g'day.

Hi everyone, new guy here. Just picked up a brand new 2020 BRZ Sport Tech RS in WR Blue yesterday afternoon.

I've always wanted one of these kind of cars. Drove one back when the FRS was brand new. I REALLY like what they've done over the years especially on the RS model.

Hi everybody I am a proud new owner of a 2020 brz. I was wondering how far back in years can I go for parts that would be compatible?
