I think I'm the first person on TCL that put his money where is mouth is and bought a BRZ. I've had it on order for months, and it came in today. I was the first in line at my dealership.
The car is awesome, it's a great driver. I can't wait to see what it will do after I get everything broken in. The car's suspension is very firm, and there is near zero body roll.
Yes, it's not as fast in a straight line, but it sure is faster than my 2 Miatas, my E30 325is, and my Golf TDI (which are my most recent vehicles).
The torque is very flat. I even passed a couple of people going uphill on the highway.
This is my first time seeing a Premium BRZ in real life (I have only seen Limiteds). The cloth interior is very nice, and the interior is better than the pictures suggest. The only thing that I'd like from the Limited is the silver trim around the HVAC controls.
I'm just getting used to the car. It'll be fun to see how it handles the back roads I usually drive the Miata on.
As far as price goes: I paid Invoice + $800. That's about $300 under MSRP.
Bring on the love; bring on the hate. I'll be out driving my new sports car.
