Video: WRB BRZ Limited rolling in Metro Detroit

Hey guys! On my morning commute I spotted a WRB BRZ Limited with Manufacturer plates heading west on I-696. I acted quick and grabbed a video on my iPhone. It's not long, but the lighting is good and shows off the car nicely. Please ignore the audio, it's the ample wind noise and exhaust drone of my Exige. It was actually good to have the two cars next to each other for scale; the BRZ is definitely bigger, however it's still smaller than every other car on the road.

A few observations:
*The LED strips were the only lights on [DRL]
*The rear bumper cover does indeed flap in the wind at Interstate speeds, but it's just a tiny bit right where the reverse lights are. I only noticed this from the bright sun shimmering in the edges of the bumper cover.
*No idea how it sounds; I can't hear anything else in the world when I'm in the Exige. Sorry.
*The car looks good! The car has good presence without seeming ricer. The car has good proportion; it's nice and wide. The rear end is less fussy than when I saw it static at the dealership.

Cheers,
Ryan

Eyes on the road Mr. Haha, I kid. It might the just be the angle or depth perception, but that BRZ looks huge and way wider compared to that jeep (or is that a Suzuki Samurai?)

It's the angle. Remember I was in my Exige, not your Tacoma. Even Corolla's look huge when you're sitting below street level.
