today i learned that backing up these cars is more expensive than hundreds of dollars in aftermarket wheels, tires, batteries, and specialty ramps.

The OP is willing to throw money at a problem that can be solved for free by backing into his driveway.

TIL that a Scion FRS will confuse a smog shop and make them say, "what the hell is this!?" after seeing Subaru, Toyota, and Scion throughout the car. LMAO

Funny at the moment, but made smogging my car take 40 minutes. Also partly because they were also looking up what my Scan Gauge 2 is and making sure it wasn't a tuning device. (-____-)

In fairness I have lived in a couple of places where there is no way I would want to back in every time.
In this case the proposed solutions will not resolve the issue though. Bigger tires and smaller battery just would have no real impact without going to extremes that open up new issues.

Probably didn't help that I put Scion FRS on the form when I was filling it out. In his research, he pulled up the BRZ. So I had to explain the whole thing to him. Haha
