      Does not look like MS paint. Must be dent there or something which a body shop drew on. There is another circle by the door handle.

      I heard one the other day, and they actually sound really good.

      Actually, I'm surprised i haven't been seeing more frs/brz carnage. I was expecting lots to be wrapped around trees or in peoples roofs and front porches.

      They can't go fast enough yet.

      FR-S/BRZ drives towards tree's due to driver failure. - - - Tree gets tired of waiting, and moves out of the way.

      That would be a nicer set of numbers if it were from the factory and not stretching the max potential.

      What effect does that have on the reliability/lifespan/warranty etc. I'd be happy if toyota/subaru released a kit that could achieve this performance and still maintain warranty.

      There doesn't appear to be any body damage, I think the wheel is like that because of the torque

      I am awaiting the BRZ crash thread with all the teeny boppers thinking they are Ken Block with their Subarus.

      You didn't hear about the version with rear steering? They copied Nissan's HICAS system.
