      Niceee

      I would get the Subaru in blue and the Scion in white, though. That's just me.

      Good to see a few TCLers already bought/ordered one. (As I have predicted)

      Unlike other cars TCL wants, but never buys!

      So how big are these things inside? Do tall people fit okay? Beefy dudes? Tall beefy dudes?

      This isn't a Craigslist ad by the way.

      Can we have a few more "I'm [getting/ordered/just took delivery of] one of three cars that is nearly almost exactly the same" threads?

      I think we need a few more!

      I feel like the Pontiac GTO just came out again.
      how come a transvestite donkey witch is next to you and why is it wearing a dress?

      Say 'what' again. Say 'what' again, I dare you, I double dare you mother****er, say what one more goddamn time!

      By this logic we should all be driving diesels and revving to 4K RPM. Weeeeeeee! What fun!

      Nice! I saw a few of these at a local car show this weekend and they do look great in person. Interior was a lot nicer that I was expecting too.

      Was there any sort of "market value" dealer markup over the sticker price?

      It must be pretty neat to have enough money lying around where you can go out expecting to get groceries, but instead come home with a brand new sports car ordered!

      oh? well it is a big difference. Funny how when somebody has a different opinion than some people, they're automatically a retard and CLEARLY getting dumber...

      Digest it as you like, but power is the work performed. The fact that you have to wait for it isn't necessarily a problem; it's better than having it all at once when you're on a track since wheelspin isn't a desired by-product of low-end torque. Torque is simply the twisting the engine generated. More twist, more in-your-seat. Conclusively, based solely on this, the GTI is more fun to drive on public roads IF you drive it like a normal car and accelerate from red lights, on ramps, what have you, even corners as it handles very well for an FF. The BRZ on the other hand may not be as fun to drive if being driven normally. You would have to take advantage of its handling characteristics; something a little hard to do on the streets. Of course, it would destroy a GTI hands down on the track. I have no doubt about that.

      That's my opinion. Torque makes me smile. Horsepower gives me tickets. But what it really comes down to is this:

      What makes you smile about a car?

      ...and would you bloody stop calling people retards because their opinion differs?!?! You're f*cking ridiculous and not credible when you insult others. But it's ok though, I'm a p*ssy anyway for not wanting to downshift for torque... ()

      I've driven the GTI for six years. It gets boring after a while...the power delivery is too smooth for a car with sporting intentions. The power delivery of the BRZ makes me smile, however.

      Yup, and that's what drives me abso-freakin-loutely bonkers about the people on both extremes about this car. It's either all or nothing, and the threads are getting unbearable.

      Nope, I paid sticker. The salesman told me that marking it up would not be a policy that their dealership would support.

      Understandably. I agree 100%. To say the BRZ is bullsh!t is a really dumb statement (almost deserves insta-ban). It's not for everyone, and that's a fact. But it's a well engineered car and has a specific purpose. If you don't float that boat, that's fine, but these groundless comments and getting old and it's almost insulting to those who love the car.

      Bottom line; not everyone likes like same things you do. (I think I learned this while my age was expressed by a single digit...)

      Just for the record; I think the BRZ/FR-S is an amazing car. I actually signed up for one. However, that was before I test-drove a mk5 GTI and fell in love with Volks again. (and kind of remembered what I love in a car) Besides, the FR-S was more than what I was willing to pay for. I've never test driven one either.

      I wanted a black FR-S and to make it look just like the one that attended a C&C meet a few months ago.

      Galaxy Blue Silica for BRZ, Ultramarine for the FR-S...same color.

      As far as I know, the Lava and WR Blue are the exclusives for each.

      Cool. I'm gonna eventually go the BRZ route - I really like WRB, but I think it'll be too flashy for me as a daily driver. This other blue may be the ticket.

      I am about 210, wide shoulders, etc...I didn't get a ton of seat time, but the bolsters weren't too bad.

      I've driven the GTI for six years. It gets boring after a while...the power delivery is too smooth for a car with sporting intentions. The power delivery of the BRZ makes me smile, however.
      Can you elaborate?

      I'd get that deep blue if I were getting one.

      I like the quicker-revving nature of the brz. The power comes on earlier in the GTI, but it feels lazy in comparison. I know some people will be quick to disagree, but thats how it feels to me.
