      I am have been thinking about my next car. While I do like VW, I get the impression that they are the pits to work on yourself and diagnose. If this was disproved, I would consider a GTI or TDI as my next car.

      i kind of want to get into a car that i can have fun driving around. i can raise my Jetta but at the end of the day its still a 4 cylinder Jetta. but then i realize that i drive maybe 3000 miles a year so it makes no sense to spend money on a car.

      Because:

      -it isn't 300hp

      -the US version will be badged as a Scion, and we are all fearing the ****ty commercials already

      I think the Hyundai molester looks really cool IRL. Pictures definitely make it look worse.

      I haven't been this excited for a car in awhile. I really can't wait to see one.

      Building off your post...it seems like there are a bunch of broke kids in TCL who lust over $5000 Miatas and 4.0s because they can actually own them in the near term. That, and there are a ton of people who are in the ~$20K budget range when car shopping. In other words, the Rich-off thread in here is the exception rather than the rule. This car is going to be one of the more accessible, NEW, performance cars out there that seems to be designed for enthusiasts, BY enthusiasts...yet people still manage to complain.

      People have too many things to complain about.
      The entire TCL BRZ Torque thread belongs in the OT First World Problems thread.

      I haven't seen that specific thread, but I'm guessing it's similar to lots of others that caused me to stop going to TCL.

      If you bought into that troll thread, chances are good TCL wouldn't want your dumb, gullible ass there anyways. I know I wouldn't.

      I was posting on TCL for 9 years before you even joined this site. Let me know in 2018 if you're bored with it or not

      Note: I still haven't seen the thread in question. I'm just referring to the fact that after a while, it just seems to be the same ol' stuff over and over. At least to me.

      I love mine, way more than the other 4 VW's I've owned.

      Still want an S52 M coupe but the Toyabaru is making that desire fade. But my reminiscing of the 2.8L Z3 I had makes me torn.

      Can't wait to test drive a BRZ.

      I absolutely love my car. That is all.

      I still subscribe to PVW and will continue to do so. I love seeing people get creative with their cars.
