sat in a BRZ today

not much to say that hasn't already been said. i like it better in person. the wheels look better. it's smaller than it looks in pictures. comfy seats, although the seat behind the driver is basically there for show.

i'm 5'8" and sit in a "proper" performance driving position, being able to rest my wrist on top of the steering wheel without pulling my back away from the seat back... my friend who is a couple inches taller was unable to sit behind me for more than about 2 minutes. we then switched and he couldn't get far enough back without breaking my legs.

it pretty much boils down to "i can't wait to drive and own one."

LOL on the leg breaking - thanks for the straightforward and clear description of the back seat leg room.

no problem. the car's effectively a 3 seater. seems like the passenger should be able to sit far enough forward that the person sitting behind them won't lose their legs due to blood circulation being cut off. i wouldn't recommend it for very long, but seems like it'll work for 30-45 minutes that way.

All of these sat in a BRZ, rode in a BRZ, touched a BRZ, saw a BRZ, licked a BRZ, smiled at a BRZ all need to be merged. Place is becoming a zoo.

At least nobody's taken the relationship "all the way" so far...

I concur. I'm always going through 'em hoping for something new, but sadly nada

There really have only been a couple of unpublished driving reviews here to date. Anyways, getting a spread of views is worthwhile to see if a consensus is emerging.
