Newbie here also! Took delivery of a new 10-Series today. I love this little car! Not quite the horsepower of my previous cars but I like it just the same. Online tonight to make a wheel/tire purchase. I have already gained a ton of valuable info on these cars from this forum. Hopefully I can contribute also!

I was kind of hoping for no more snow. Roads have been clear for awhile but more snow is on the way. If I can't make it there in the Frs, then I don't need to go there anyways lol. + the wife has a Forester haha

New '13 owner here. The car had 8 miles when I got it. 250 miles on it now and it started rattling. Been driving in the snow as it's my DD. Got it for 24k OTD with the '14 radio, paint protection, spoiler and whiteout

Come from a Subaru STI. Also have a Kawasaki ZX6R on the side.

I don't have an issue with the car's power as no car feels fast after owning motorcycles. I just love how the car feels.

CONGRATULATIONS and WELCOME, FRStock .....

So your machine is "rattling" .. ?? Maybe it's just cold ....

Lots of rattle fixes here on the ol forum.

NO MODS ..... now; keep true to your forum name .....

Thanks. My cars stay mostly stock.

I'm sure the rattling is because it sits outside while I'm at work, can't be anywhere close to the STI. That thing felt like it was made by Wal-Mart.

New member from Georgia.

10 years ago, I had 4agze AE86


I parted it out after an accident and bought a 350z



Blew 2 motors. VQ35DE wasnt so reliable for me

Then I got this MR-S as an impulse purchase.

Annnddd I learned a lesson of owning a midship. Its scary. Also, I had a punk kid who tried to steal my car while I was in class.



So I used insurance to fix it and traded for this bad boy



Good to be back to owning a hachiroku again!!!

Judging from the history above

Your car will not be looking new for long. LOL. Welcome to the forum and enjoy.

PS. Nice shot of the Olympic rings.

Hey everyone!

Been lurking for some time, you have a great forum here! I'm from Warsaw, Poland and currently I'm in the process of selling my Citroen C4 and getting WRB BRZ (hopefully)

This forum is a goldmine for a Toyobaru owner
Any other members from Poland around? ;p
