It’s been announced for a while now, but a shame they did away with so many STi goodies.

Yes but, this is the official SoA media release and the first time I've seen mention of the "matte bronze" coloured wheels. All the early photos showed either a 2018 tS with the big wing or a white BRZ with the aero package and 15 spoke gloss black rims.

Fantastic shots. I’m just floored that they basically made it look like a lightly modded Performance Pack trim (imo) rather than the “ricey” look on the original TS (which I personally prefer).

Doesn’t really seem worth the 33k asking price, especially since Toyota has officially announced the second gen but it still looks pretty nice.

check out the hakone edition 86 for $32k(like a base limited with even less stuff and cheaper radio) and this looks like a heck of a deal.

It would have been nice if they used the same interior from the hakone on this one. Tan, bronze and white is a winner!

I must say the BRZ is looking way better than the 86 IMHO

A local dealer has the Hakone edition, 6 speed manual. I almost laughed out loud at how bad the bumper looked in green (and I have a 2017+ 86 myself in white). The BRZ bumper is much cleaner.

Until they change the orange sidemarkers, I'll never buy one newer than 2013.

This is starting to get pedantic.

If there's nothing between the [IMG ] tabs, then he didn't paste the URL with the image it was supposed to display. Not your computer's fault
