Ill correct myself.

My FRS is still very much an FRS on the inside. turn key, no push button, no bells or whistles


I got the tS braces, suspension bits, flex strut bar, 4.3 diff, and wing with a 2018 bumper.

I wanted the tS but also didnt want the frou frou nor the added cost of tearing apart a 1 of 500 unit.

am satisifed but would rather have the newer chassis that was refined and has the added stuff such as the diff ( I was lucky to find it)

I wish there was a claus for accidents caused by distracted driving, those drivers would lose their license for a year

Meh, my opinions are free.


I love the new wing. So jelly.

Several times when traffic would creep forward I would see him slam on his brakes last minute... I'm glad I have a rear-view dashcam now, but I really dread the day I have to use the footage.
Oh, that wasn't the driver, that probably was the cars auto braking system.

Also...


Lol at how they portray this being used. Who says Germans don't have a healthy imagination...

very interesting.

Definitely interested in how it works out. I don't want the steering feel to change much, it's just those odd situations where it feels like the power steering is out of breath...
