1slowbrz's 2017 wrb performance package

Decided to document my project, and where better than here so here it goes!

I ordered (kinda) an incoming 2017 brz performance package from Heuberger in Colorado Springs the beginning of April.

The car arrived May 9th, and I picked it up May 17th after they installed the STI ground effects. The car also came equipped with the auto dimming mirror with homelink, cargo tray, rear bumper appliqué, and wheel locks.



The experience with Heuberger was awesome. I flew from Wisconsin to Denver, got picked up at the airport, rode about an hour to the dealer where my car was ready, I finished paperwork, went though the car, and got a gift bag full of Subaru merchandise which was cool.


I also couldn't leave the parking lot without installing my Raceseng slammer shift knob

Next my road trip began. My parents live in Rio Rancho New Mexico so that 330 mile trek was next.


Day one complete.

The next morning, May 18th I brought the car to the tint and trim factory in Albuquerque for a clear mask for the front end and window tint




Day 3, I finally got around to installing the Armrest from ft86speedfactory, and some engine bay dress up bolts my dad had laying around from his 350z





Now time to relax, prepare for the 1500 mile journey home in a few days, and start trying to decide on an exhaust and tires.


And for fun, here's my 2013 BRZ and my 2016 STI that I used to own

I wanted a small lightweight car that i was comfortable working on unlike my M3 and that could be competitive in autocross, as well as not being extremely expensive to maintain (also different from my M3)

And I don't fit in a Miata.

I am in the same boat. I love my M3 but have been think of selling a picking up a BRZ/86. I am just having a hard time letting the m3 go.
