I didn't like the rear spoiler until I saw yours with the gurney flap on it. Where'd you get that? Hopefully not too expensive?

Rear Console Silencer: SU003-04321

Silencer?
What is it silencing? Drive line noise? Does it work? And lastly, how much was it?
Thanks

Yeah the gurney flap makes a big difference! I go to Japan for work often, so I bought it there. You can buy it from Japanparts.com for about 100 bucks. You could also try to make one from Home Depot stuff. It isn't anything special.

That's just the name that Toyobaru calls it. The stock one is also called a silencer. It's just a cosmetic mod, it's the same underneath as the stock piece.

That's what I was thinking. Reminds me of the garage door weather seal lip that people had for their WRXs. I'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult to make it from something like that for a lot cheaper.

I'm liking the attention you give to your interior. That gurney flap really looks great against SWP... subtly sporty but makes a huge difference! Can't wait to see after your wheels/springs are installed.

I believe "S" is the top trim in Japan.

BRZs in Japan has 3 trim levels. From more expensive to least:

S (comparable to Limited in the US)
R (comparable to Premium in the US)
RA (stripper model)

S differences from USDM Limited:
S adds leather trimmed door speakers and knee pads
S adds frameless mirror

Limited has Alcantara & seat heaters, S it's an option.
Limited has Rear Spoiler, S it's an option (with Floor Undercover).

USDM has LED Dayliner, JDM is option.

I'd like to eventually. Hoping I can find someone in Japan who would be interested in trading but no luck yet.
