Awesome dude....can I ask what mods you done to her and how you managed to get a BRZ so soon? I thought they weren't releasing the BRZ's till towards the end of this year?

Litchfield's will be doing the mods and I am just waiting for them to bring stuff to the market.

Looking for 250 horses in the first instance, then FI once solutions are proven. Target performance is to match Exige S with focus on track day performance.

Won't be long now.

Still quite surprised I got a car before any Subaru or Toyota dealer; must be to do with being an existing customer ;)

Only a 100 or so BRZ this year I think.

Had my fun with the 35
.... but wanted to quit while I was ahead.

Have bought the BRZ as a track toy and it already does that job well.

Loved it although weather conditions ( very wet ) favoured the car.

Need to do a dry day......

I think Dan decide I while back to make it a brz forum too. Since they are both the same car we might as well share our experiences.

ICantAffordAnLFA was the first uk owner. Been following him on ft86 club

Icant afford



I saw your car the weekend before you got it. Dealer said it was in and
I could pop down and look before "customer" picked it up.

Lol, same sh*t buddy :)

UK brz owners likely to be thin on the ground so we may have to crash your forum

That said, the GT86 is probably more Subaru than you know.

Cool

Steve at Womoco is a really good guy and I popped down to see it too.

Hopefully only I got to take it enthusiastically round Waterworks roundabout on trade plates though.

Spot on

We may have trouble when next month's EVO mag comes out ; 6mt brz vs 6mt gt86


If it becomes an issue I'll just rebadge ;)

He only let me look around it as I'd not seen a BRZ in the flesh. He did mention that you'd taken it for a sneaky spin out.

You should have had a go

Great dealership btw and a great advert for genuine service from a smaller dealer.

Yes the guy was really nice and helpul. Unfortunately he couldn't get me what I'd of wanted until Jan '13 whereas my GT86 "should" be here in 3 weeks. I wouldn't of dreamt of driving the car, just not the done thing.

I do prefer the front bumper on the BRZ.
