That's correct, plunked down a deposit and waiting for May to get here. Fist color choice was Galaxy blue, but the guy that owns the dealership ordered one, so I went with Sterling silver for my first choice, Red for my second. Honestly, I don't care if it's turd brown I just can't wait to throw it around a track.
Wow, nice man. I dont know if I will be able to sleep tonite now, knowing someone is getting one already. I have seen some pics of them, supposedly in Cali already. Looks to be a pretty nice car. Im looking forward to test driving one just to say I did, lol.
the car does look sick. congrats on the buy. i know this is suppose to be the "new age" remake of the ae-86 which i understand on the rwd drive train but just wondering why they only put a na motor in and not a turbocharged version
It's engineered to be a handling car, not a horsepower monster. The engine is mounted so far back in the chassis that there's no room for a turbo mounted the usual Subaru way. Light and nimble is the thinking behind it. It's apples and oranges compared to a rex.
Cullen, if you drive through my parts and want to stop by. I'd be more than happy to take a look at and possibly drive your BRZ. . I'm just glad they made it a little more aggressive than some of the concept art. The GT-300 BRZ is just down right wicked looking and if I tracked my car aggressively then I'd be seriously thinking about trading my STI in on a BRZ. But, until they make a STI BRZ or until it picks up a tuner base. I'll just throughly enjoy my car...might make it a second car if I can't find anything else to take the daily driver role. LOL We'll, see how the tuner community reacts to the BRZ and Scion FR-S variant.

If it really arrives in May, I'll be taking it down to NJMP memorial weekend. NASA has weekends at Pocono and Beaverun too this summer, so I'll be "getting around" in it. I plan on being in on the ground floor of developing parts for it, not being one to leave well enough alone
Current MX5 is 2480# with 167hp. or 14.85# per HP (6spd model) which is more than the BRZ at 13.8# per hp (2760# 200hp). I think factoring in the better P-W ratio, the roof, storage capacity and that it's a Subaru, I had to choose a BRZ
