      I signed up to the FT86 forums about a month ago Lima do you still want that sheet?

      Yeah 1500 predicted sold the first year which isn't many. The Aussie section of the forums has a least 20+ people with deposits taken.

      I think the Subaru will be a little upmarket with one higher spec model whereas the Toyota has two trim lines with a basic spec and then a higher line spec with HID's sat nav etc.

      Subaru will presumably have some STI dress up and Performance parts and Toyota has TRD performance parts as well. One of the big Jap wheel makers just released their wheels for this car.

      What I absolutely love about this car is how much it burns the chip war crowd It's like their brains can't handle the concept of a car that can't get 100hp extra from a dump pipe and a chip The subaru guys are particularly sore. This car challenges their whole reason for existing...

      When I was up at Eastern Creek at the Burrows Drive Day about three weeks ago,I went for a walk down near turn one.
      Subaru have a building there a lo and behold in the garage was a BRZ[Subaru's version of the FT86]
      Nice man let me have a look at it [unfortunately it was an auto]
      Looks pretty interesting up close,quite nice inside.
      Don't be fooled by the 4 seats though......VERY tight in the back-couldn't see humans fitting in there.
      Comes with a LSD but I think you can get a mechanical one as an option OS.
      Price-wise he said it had to be under the WRX at the very least,as that's their big performance model at $40k.
      Said they should be out around June.
      Worth a look if the price is right.
      Cheers

      My thinking is that my dear wife will never want to set foot in it, so I really only need three seats. One kid in the front with the seat pushed forward and one in the back behind him/her.

      If that doesn't work, I'll have to pass.

      Reminds me of one of the only times I have felt close to panicking from claustrophobia. Stuck in the rear of a 944. Really depends on how far that passenger seat goes forward.

      There is absolutely not a chance in hell you or your growing kids will fit in a back of that car.

      Dunno about that, I dragged my sufferin tribe about in the back of the 968 way after they fitted with any comfort. They are both boys though, by the time comfort was an issue they had started taking note of other things that offset the preposterous lack of room in the back.

      If it's anything like a 944/968 for room Matty, and short trips, I reckon you're good till at least middle school. It's not going to be the only car in the family is it?

      No, I think I'll keep the E91. Hasn't missed a beat.

      reminds me of a time on a roadtrip to Sydney in the MINI when Kev and Simon (2 of the MINI2 guys) were in the back seat and I dropped a fart that would have stripped paint, Dan and I jumped out and shut them in there. They almost literally turned green.

      Haha, sure is. 370Z I believe, but the equation's roughly of universal application isn't it?

      Buy this E30 325i Wagon which has just been imported from UK as a toy car. I've spoken to the owner and he said, it is immaculate.

      Only $16.500

      Why? They were a nice car in their time, but buying a 1988 car for regular family transport. I think not.

      They do look nice. But good friends don't let friends buy Land Rovers.

      Catch up Thursday night? Don't mind if it's late.
