Those appear to be the emblems from the JDM FT-86; that's where they're mounted on the Toyota version.

Its the boxer/86 emblem. My car has it too. The Scions have black paint on them while the JDM version has red. I plan on changing that.

unless the interior of the brz blows me away. I'll be getting the fr-s and just swapping radios for something with nav.

Anyone know if the headlights can be swapped from the brz to the fr-s yet?

I think the emblem with the boxer pistons and emblem looks really cool, actually.

Just not on the fender.

The jury is still out on that one. Some say the BRZ lights will fit the FR-S bumper, others say there is a very slight difference in the shape.

Im waiting for either Spyder Auto to release something (as long as its not rice) or for the EDM GT86 headlights to drop in price:

Driving the car in the crazy rain today because the CL doesnt want to cooperate

I think the CL is just jealous.





On the bright side, sideways action?
