mostly comes down to features.

gr86 vs. gr86premium, or brz premium vs. brz limited differences boil down to:
adaptive headlights
color-keyed rear spoiler
17" vs. 18" wheels
illuminated sun visor vanity mirrors
heated seats
utrasuede interior
6 speaker audio vs. 8 speaker audio
blind spot detection
primacy summer tires vs. pilot sport 4 summer tires

that's with the manual transmission. automatic transmission adds some other things like auto-high beam, Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control w/ Lane Centering, Pre-collision Braking, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and Lane Keep Assist.

lastly, the suspension is setup slightly different to comply with each corporates 'brand flavoring'. the 86 used to be setup more playful, while the brz used to be setup to be more consistent/restrained.

other than that, it's entirely aesthetic differences.

The Slambert is a 1 1/4 receiver. Most bike racks in 1 1/4 are going to be a bit flimsy since it is just supported in the center. A setup like @soundman98 has is going to be much sturdier. That being said my no name bike rack has been solid for 10 years and has been on numerous rigs from my car with really stiff coilovers to my lifted 4runner with 1-2 heavy downhill/all-mountain bikes on it.

Can confirm Slambert mount and hitch works well. Takes 5 minutes to install the mount and your hitch. Also, yes, the 1-1/4 receiver allows the hitch to bounce and rock, which can be unsettling. You can find a "silencer" plate that bolts around the receiver and hitch and that works okay to help some play, but it wants to loosen itself after a few uses.





Buy a safety strap that you wrap around the hitch and the bike to give you a bit more piece of mind.

My only complain is that for whatever reason the right bolt of the Slambert hitch backs out slowly and needs periodically re-tightened. I also would not attempt 2 bikes. My hitch is around 35 pounds, plus another 35 with the MTB. I could do another, but it would be sketchy.

I'm a fan of the 1up racks.

You can get a 6x6 ft yard waste tarp.
Fling that in then pull the perimeter rope. You've got a bagged bike.

I'm getting a BRZ specifically because it can fit a bike or bike travel case inside. All other sports cars I'd consider, except the M2, were ruled out by this requirement. If I can't put a bike in it or drive it to the airport when flying with a bike it won't get used for anything more than grocery runs. I prefer the both wheels off and drop the post method.

looks cheap but would probably work ok.


personally not a fan of racks that hang the bike off the top tube and much prefer a tray style one where the wheels are supported.


if you dont want to spend a lot of money on the rack (new ones are now really expensive) try looking for used options

I was going to say the same thing - that I always recommend going a little extra $$ for a tray-type rack. BUT, to keep in mind that for the Slambert you definitely want the lightest and closest rack you can find. Closest meaning a rack that doesn't hang off the back too far. (Mine does and it bounces like a freaking diving board with the Slambert. Bent the pins carrying a single 25lb bike.) For tray type rack that puts you into stupid $$ territory - 1UP etc. So if you're not using it a ton or transporting fancy carbon bikes, the hang type might be a good all around option on Slambert.
