    no fog light no buy! haha for reals though I love the look of fog lights and really wish they would have kept it for the tS which is why I went for the limited trim instead.

    it’s not supposed to be a fast car. It’s a driver’s car. The handling, the loud engine, and the response time. If you want a fast car go for the wrx.

    Bruh, there aren't many corners on the road that you can take at a good speed.. unless you live in the desert, canyons, rural areas, or if you track regularly, you aren't going to be cornering sht, and even then there are other cars with more power that can keep up with it in the corners as well. Name a few; 350z, 370z, Civic Type R, GTI, Golf R, Focus RS, Focus ST, Mazdaspeed 3, s2000 etc.. all these cars can easily keep up with the 86 in corners, maybe not take it as well, but they can keep up and they have more power.

    Really nice looking car. Just doesn't have the power I was looking for. I can respect someone that has one though, they are nice cars.

    I went and test drove a 2019 brz ts last friday the 19th and i'm so disappointing. I daily a 2006 wrx with full bolt on. A CAI with all cats removed with a spt exhaust and just an AP tune on 93 with some strut bars front and back. It wouldn't out perform it at all on a track. don't get me wrong The car is fuckin' sexy. But for the price i would rather go get a mustang gt or a 370z. Shit even another 05-06 sti. Shits nice. For a daily driver. Imagine getting walked by a toyota corolla lmao. nty

    Which is a better buy, the BRZ or GT86? Similar price.
    Is this getting a more powerful engine with next gen for 2021?

    • Scotty Lozano
      Scotty Lozano 7 months ago

      Depending on where you live, if you live in us we don't get the 86, but the BRZ and FRS, if you want a car that has comfy suspension and a nice interior the BRZ is the way to go. But if you want a funner car to drive its the FRS, i think the 86 is the same as FRS

    Saturn Sky wannabe. Slow, can't corner due to having Prius tires. I guess it's fun to drift, that's about it.

    • ybaha199
      ybaha199 4 months ago +1

      @PnTNecrosis Likewise. I respect your opinion of the Saturn fully. I just spent Saturday at Sebring so I guess I'm still a little excited :)

    • PnTNecrosis
      PnTNecrosis 4 months ago

      @ybaha199 In that case, you enjoy too. Can't hate on someone who actually drives. Only the (supposed) wannabes. Drive what makes you happy. I'll never think the BRZ has anything on the sky, but that's my opinion and limited experience with one driver. Cheers.

    • ybaha199
      ybaha199 4 months ago +1

      @PnTNecrosis My current track car is a '17 BRZ. Not actually a great drift car. Does corner extremely well on stock tires and is downright impressive on track tires. Plus it has a back seat (tools and helmets). And a roof. And actually looks good. Maybe the wannabe comment got my attention a little, but I am pretty sure no one thought about Saturn during the design or execution of the 86 twins. Enjoy your car.

    • PnTNecrosis
      PnTNecrosis 4 months ago

      @ybaha199 I have had an '08 Redline for ten years now and very frequently run mountain roads with a group of gearhead friends. One of which has your beloved BRZ. They look nice and sound nice with a catback exhaust, but still can't compare to the sky in looks, sound or most importantly, performance. I'm assuming you're the one who wants one but can't afford it so you think it's superior.

    • ybaha199
      ybaha199 4 months ago

      @PnTNecrosis ​ PnTNecrosis you really want me to go into how little sense the old Saturn comparison makes and what the actual driving dynamics of the BRZ are with the "Prius tires"? LOL Suggestive comments can carry as much meaning as if I wrote it all out for you word for word, if you are able to comprehend them. And you still have not disputed my guess that you have never driven one of these cars, and certainly not at speed. If you have, then I accept you are entitled to your opinion. If you have not, you are talking out of your posterior.

  • Mr. NPC
    Mr. NPC 7 months ago

    I have a 2019 86 as my first manual. Is it a good idea to rev all the way up to 7,000rpm? I usually stay around 3,000 - 4,000rpm cuz
    I don't wanna hurt my engine. What should I be aware of beforehand? Should I use a thicker oil or something?

    • ybaha199
      ybaha199 4 months ago

      Redline is 7,400. Shifting at 7k is safe for the motor (synchros don’t like it much though)

    • 匿名ユーザー
      匿名ユーザー 7 months ago

      Just make sure your temperature gauge is in the middle, and don't hold it at redline for a long time (like leaving it bouncing off the rev limiter for ages). Don't drive it hard when it's cold and you'll be fine.

    That price is way too high. Would rather buy an evo or 370z with 33k. If these engine at least were strong enough to hold big boost kits id be happy. But the price is wrong for our cars

    People who have a BRZ talk about not being able to use power due to speed limits... then go on to say this car is good for drifting and cornering hard at high RPM, hypocrites. And how many of you ACTUALLY take your car to a track? I am going to guess not many. And if you use your BRZ as just a track car, then you clearly have enough money to buy something better than a BRZ
