If true, the variance in ride height is interesting. Also, I believe there is a different muffler or exhaust for N.America. The N. America versions will have 3 more HP.

I still can't seem to figure out which one I like more! Tho I think I'm leaning slightly more towards FR-S since it seems to fit me a little bit better, kinda aggressive but not over the top imo. Good to know a lot of the parts will be interchangeable tho

Other differences on the exterior would be the lack of a spoiler on the FRS while I haven't seen the BRZ captured without one yet. The actual fog lights in the bumpers do seem to be the same (physical size), however the ones in the BRZ are encased in plastic so who knows if they will actually fit into the FRS bumper (mounting points anyway). Mufflers seem to be somewhat different in those pictures with the FRS looking overall a tiny bit smaller (this may be due to camera angle/lighting).

I think the ride height difference is due to the inclusion of the antenna base in the BRZ measurement where as on the 86 they don't count it.

Regarding the rear spoiler I think it could be available on the 86 as well, I'm sure one of the motorshow or early press images showed it. (Can't stand it personally! Duckbill FTW)

I'm +1 for an 86 with BRZ headlights
Looks like this will be a popular swap/conversion

Like I said what, year and a half ago? Badge engineering, most be the same. I was wrong tho, I thought they would have different shaped lights at least, if only slightly

This is pretty close to badge engineering where they both sat down and did what they wanted to their cars within the confines of the given "body/chassis/Interior" so they can make it their own. There isn't anything wrong with that.

I don't see a point to different headlamp (sizes/shapes) for the 2 companies that would require work and supply issues I am sure they didn't want to deal with.

Thanks Moto-P for the side-by side visual comparison.

Let me see if I have this right:

Exterior Differences:
*Headlight guts [same exterior dims and mounting points
*front bumper cover [adds turn signals for FR-S, black plastic mustache on BRZ]
*front fender vent garnish
*emblems [front, rear, name badge, wheel caps]
*Trunk spoiler [optional anyway?]

Interior Differences:
*Dash trim [silver vs. faux CF]
*steering wheel badge
*gauge cluster bezel [all black BRZ, silver/white tach on FR-S]
*Upholstery [black cloth w/red shoulder patches FR-S, cloth/leather all black BRZ, both with red stitching]
*Auto HVAC, push-button start, optional heated seats, audio head-unit
