I know there's already an 86 thread and they are very similar cars, wondering if anyone decided to go the BRZ route?

I initially really was set on the 86, but the delivery date was a bit far out... I also managed to get 1k under MSRP for my BRZ. I also think getting MSRP will be slightly tougher for the 86, and even though I initially liked the styling more, the BRZ has grown on me a ton.

Placed a pre-order almost 2 weeks ago, got the Limited Trim 6MT in World Rally Blue. Super excited for my first blue car and also first RWD :D Very excited to start sliding and to see the aftermarket options out there

Makes me think of a poor mans 911. Not an insult, just how the body is shaped.

Completely agree the front definitely gives me porsche/Nissan Z vibes. Plus they both also have boxer engines. Poor mans porsche it is!!!

I was interested in what kind of Toyota specific options might be available but they won't put up a build tool for it. Just the old one.

I built a BRZ though and like it. Most people are raving about how fun it is to drive which is nice to see.

Yeah partly the reason I went BRZ. I do like the GR86 front bumper more and the black side mirrors but I don't think they'll be available for some time.. also toyota dealers are much harder to bargain for MSRP so i expect a markup which I will not pay.

Planning on painting the lower black trim of the BRZ front bumper to color match my World Rally Blue which I think will make it look much better/more aggressive

Been binging all of it for a month now, pretty sure I've watched every video

funnily enough i was going to start shooting youtube vids for this with my gopro. I've shot a couple ones for a civic but never posted anything, mostly used it as a learning experience on how to shoot and edit but this time around I feel prepared for the brz :)

After doing much research, somebody found out that it looks like a major cargo ship carrying a whole range of BRZ's has just recently landed in Rhode Island. This vessel will be offloading them there and then will be heading to Boston Autoport to offload some more.

https://www.vesselfinder.com/vessels...MMSI-566971000

Super exciting news, I have a December ETA but I was the first order at my dealer, hoping that they get their allocation sooner.

I originally thought that these BRZ's were built to order, but it looks like they send over a bunch of cars in likely specs that people will buy (Like a 6MT WRB), which is a popular color/combo.

Hype!!

The reviewers say it drives great, so I am looking forward to an in-depth evaluation, relative to the Civic, of how much it squeaks and rattles, average mpg, and whether my short friends have any chance of fitting in the back seats :p
