I think hes getting some tire rub from that wheel and coilover setup. Sound only happens during a full lock drift.

The issue with running 19 wheels I guess, can't relate.

TBH, I think the front of the new BRZ would look better with some clues from the front of the new WRX.
The opposite about the rear though

Eh, I think the new WRX is a complete disaster. The new BRZ is almost timelessly good looking compared to it. Honestly think my 2011 just gained some value lol.

The rear bumper is pretty bad, like they had 2 different bumper designs and couldn't decide between them so they just melted them together.

I don't mind the rest of the rear though

I just can't with the WRX. I'm sure it will grow on me like every new year model, but I just find the heavy amounts of plastic trim distasteful.

Seems like can turn off the Active Sound Control?! I assume that's the speaker that goes Vrrooommm.

At the 6:30 Mark thereabouts he even says there is some de sync between sound and actual rpm. Off by 0.5s, which he realised only when editing the video.

According to the (dodgy) translation, can be turn off at the dealers, at least in JDM land I guess.

Wonder if we should create a thread on teardown....
More teardown stuff.

Removes the black bar between the taillights too. So many options are going to be out there for this!

From the photos I seen, top spec gr86 seem to have the big ducktail tacked on top of the stock duct tail. I wonder why they could just replace the darn thing.
