I still donít have the exact date and time. But good news is that FR-S is in Vancouver port and will release first of May. So I expect we will have this FR-S in our showroom around the 10th May for couple hour. We are not sure that will let pre-order customer to test drive it because this is the only one FR-S in B.C. But sure can take a ride with me! I will give you more update about the preview. *If you or have friend want to pre order the FR-S please hurry because the wait time is much longer now. Donít hesitate to email me if you have any concern. Thank you.
Do we know how many preorders they are at for that location?

So I got some new guys

While I was at the carshow I spend a lot of time with the Scion booth talking to all the reps as well as one of the fancy suit guys from Toyota who was impressed by how much I knew about the car that he asked for my contact info I gave it to him but didn't think nothing of it until today that is...

Just got a e-mail from them asking me to work 3 days for them answering questions about the FRS at a Toyota and Lexus event. I can't give out too much info due to disclosure issues but I'm hoping this means I get some seat time in the FRS.

I'll find you guys in when I know more or if I can. Pretty excited tho

I was about to say the same thing. Congrats man!

You don't need any help do you? I'm pretty sure I know 10x more then the average person so if you need another person to help you, let me know.

I'd be glad to help out if I can. I don't even really care if I get paid. Some free stuff / discount would be awesome.

Nice, Jay.

Always be sure to bring up how Toyota had to show Subaru how to make a car that handles... Heh...

lol my jay just asked me the same question on the other thread.

I will take a few days to think about it...I told myself i wouldn't pay more than 30k for the "sport-tech".....29,295...i like the price...and i'm #1 at richmond subaru, and they have a 6sp manual WRB sport tech coming in with my name on it.Richmond subaru is only initially getting 3 Btw, Another silver and white sport-tech that are Autos. they also only expect to get a 2nd shipment of maybe A car or two..and that's it for the 2013 model year.
....Aye..decisions decisions...

I dont' want to bail on you guys either though.

It's really up to you. If we can't get a good deal with the group buy, feel free to buy the BRZ. It's actually a pretty good deal with all the things it comes with, but I would rather save that 4k and get things I want installed. The proximity entry for convenience and the Dual zone climate control so the interior doesn't look like its from the last century lol.

Oops, thought there was a list here. Or I guess if there was it's gone now. Was just going to post to say to take my name off the list. Sorry... Quite happy with the BRZ Pricing. >_<

Lol the list made the first post really long and messy. Don't worry about not joining our group buy, you can still be part of our club if we ever make one xD

Cool
Have fun, just be careful accepting any invitations to go back to any hotel rooms to discuss the FRS further
