Don't do it..it would be an epic downgrade in my opinion. The Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ is an over-hyped, overpriced and slow econobox. While it may look like one, it is NOT a sports car one bit. Yes it will probably handle better than your EOS but your car has better materials, faster in a straight line and gets better fuel economy. I am not sure about the dealer in Whittier marking the car up but I wouldn't doubt it. They are probably marking it up around $8,000 (there was a thread here about a dealer in Florida with that much markup). Out the door you are looking at at $40,000 car..Can you afford that?? I would highly suggest looking into a V6 Mustang with the performance package. For less money you will get more "bang" for your buck. By the way, what do you do for a living anyway?
