Ultimately I need to sit in all three variants before I decide.

And my source for MSRPs was off by $200.

Ill make my decision at the auto show tomorrow or Wednesday regarding which car I go for. To put all the options the BRZ has into the FRS (HIDs, Nav, better seats), it would cost more then the MSRP difference.

The Subaru is also targeting a different (older) demographic, and according to some insurance brokers, the Subaru may actually cost less to insure.

Interior:





Scion had the FRS hooked up to a generator so you could play with all the accessories. Subaru did not do the same

That's about as complicated as I'd like my interior to get. Nicest car I've driven was an LS460 and while all the intricate touches, optional features and overall plush feel was really nice, I couldn't justify the price for myself if I had the money. Plus I dislike leather. Maybe in a couple of decades....

I'm liking the twins more and more with every picture/facet of info that's brought up.

Id prefer leather, but it depends on the type of seat. If theyre racing buckets, no leather. But for the CL, I love the leather.

Visited this Subaru dealer yesterday. They didn't have the BRZ. And they said they are only getting about 12 BRZs from May to November. That's it. They don't even take pre-orders. First come first serve.

The salesman was acting like they sell something like Lamborghini or something saying stuff about "we will never sell a BRZ without any mark up".

And he started bragging about their show car STi saying the car has about 650 hp. He said the car probably has 4 turbos in the back and one supercharger under the hood.

At that point, I was like okayyyyy im outta here. Never going back to that dealership ever again.

Dont go to Puente Hills, theyve been black-listed on the FRS/BRZ forum for markups. I believe Costa Mesa was on that list too. Unfortunately, those two dealers are getting the largest shipment.

I mean I don't really mind the pricing at all. It's totally fine with me. If anything, I will drive this everyday.

But dealing with these dumbass salesmen and "mark up" shit just steer me away from this car.

I'm sure the hype will eventually dry out by the end of next year.

Yea, for a daily I can see spending that kind of money. But for me, dropping that kind of coin on a car that might see 2k miles a year is tough to swallow.

These are great cars, no doubt, but acting like they are some sort of limited exclusive run is ridiculous. In a year from now they will be everywhere and the lots will be full of them, and they will be easily had.

In this case it's the early bird that's gonna get screwed.

^^eff that isht. I wouldn't go for that.

FWIW, I was looking around at used RX-8s and in my area they are in the teens. I can have RWD and fit my family in it for much cheaper than this markup.

the markups wont last forever. Once the splurging ceases, they will eventually have rows of them at the dealerships in any color, option, and transmission config you want.
