The only thing I could use is my phone so I'm not sure how great the quality will be, but I can try.

I prefer it to the speaker, because I think the speaker is a bit too loud.

The audio is pretty good and I think it sounds great. Big thanks! The noise that sounds like someone saying "brrrrrrrrrr" is totally gone.

Raw engine sounds similar to previous FA20 and the FA20 in WRX (a sound I like) but more audible than the WRX for sure. Nice purposeful 4 cyl sound

What did you do to your BRZ today?

In a word? Hell yes.

Havenít revved past 5500 rpm yet, but so far itís fantastic. I donít actually mind the engine speaker even. If I didnít KNOW, I wouldnít suspect a speaker adding to the engine noise, it feels very natural to me. Mechanical grip is significantly higher than the old car too.

Feels so good to have a sports car again. Driving is an event again now.

Picked her up a few days ago! Could not have been more excited. I miss a few things from the '16 but the '22 is such an improvement overall, that I almost don't miss my '16 at all.

Was hoping to give it a try. I honestly don't mind the speaker either, it's done quite well.

What specifically if I may ask? I am struggling to find anything that isnít either the same or better on the 2022 as on my 2013.
