Another miss opportunity or bad timing

I just bought a 21 Supra Premium.

In 2012 I wanted to buy a BRZ but I got orders to Alaska so I bought a WRX. A part of me always wanted to buy a BRZ. Fast forward many years, 2022 BRz is debut. I was all about it. I just so happened to see a Supra at my dealership. They gave me a price I couldnít refused. So again, another miss opportunity for a BRZ. I think the BRZ will always be in the back of my mind.

I just want to say thank you guys for the good read on the forums. Iíll creep back in here once the BRZ comes out.

Don't forget to get your $9 amazon.com stick on anti wind buffeting bits.

That’s interesting perspective that your bad timing and missed opportunities led to that. From mine seems like you came out ahead.

No regrets but somewhere inside of my me, I know the new twins with their manual transmission will be a fun car to drive. Another missed opportunity to enjoy a drivers car.
