      It looks like JDM pricing is out.

      http://www.tune86.com/ft-86-news/175...-price-details

      Subaru has released special BRZ websites in Japanese, showing off the car specifications a bit more. Package grades and pricing have also been released. BRZ S being the top luxurious model, type R - normal (or reduced), type RA - the low cost model with absolutely no extras, only manual transmission, for the tuners and racers.

      Pricing:

      BRZ Type S
      6MT manual: 2.793.000 JPY
      E-6AT automatic: 2.871.750 JPY

      BRZ Type R
      6MT manual: 2.478.000 JPY
      E-6AT automatic: 2.546.250 JPY

      BRZ Type RA only manual gearbox
      6MT: 2.058.000 JPY

      Torsen LSD is only equipped on type S, and type R as an option.
      Brakes are also better on type S - 16inch front ventilated and 15in rear ventilated. Weight starts at 1190kg for RA model and BRZ-S automatic being the heaviest at 1250kg.
      Racing stripes!

      that doesn't look too bad. I looked up what a WRX STI costs in Japan and compared with the US STI. It's 3685000 yen vs. $34,095USD. So, if you go by that conversion factor, the pricing is right in the ballpark of what they've been saying all along. Around $25K. If that's the case, and that's a big "IF", then they should be selling just fine.

      That is what I'm thinking. We'll see the pricing at the showroom and end of the MT review.

      You're absolutely right, but that was the closest comparison I could find. Also, that's why I put a big "IF".

      Bout 1K more than a base 2.0 GC manual (no lsd).

      I paid that much for a new Jetta in 02. I can live with that.

      Love seeing the car driven as fast as possible as opposed to sideways.

      So we have a first official 0-60 time and weight from the Geneva Auto Show.

      I've seen published numbers showing 7.6/8.2 for manual/auto. Motortrend predicts it will be 6.2~

      It's all over the map. A SI does around 6.5 as a fwd so I'd expect around that. Remember that 0-100 is 0-62ish and may or may not have had a 3rd shift.

      Weight looks promising. I expected 200lbs heavier.

      Now for price.

      I have a sneaking suspicion that this thing, with an optimistic, clutch-abusing Car & Driver reviewer at the helm, will post 0-60 times in the 5.9s range.

      15 years ago, the original 197HP Boxster which wieghed more and had a 5-speed transmission was going 0-60 in 6 seconds flat, with some magazines putting it at 6.2 seconds.

      This car is lighter, is better geared, and has newer tires. I am hoping for ~5.9s. But we'll see. I would not be surprised at anything in the 5.9s-6.5s range.
      I TCL.

      I'm not gonna lie it does seem a little high to me too. I bet if you go all Fast 'n' Furious on it the time will be more acceptable.

      pardon my Japanese, but a gutted interior with suspension changes, sticky tires (I presume) and other unknown parts equals 'mild mods'?

      My one complaint about this car is that they intentionally put **** tires on it as a design decision. A good 0-60 time requires a good launch, and I'm thinking that will be extremely difficult in this car.
