    Yea you’ll regret the driving experience and ability to actually accelerate you lose with this switch. If you want something actually fun get a mustang or German car.

          I've driven a few modern, regular cars over the last few days:
          >Audi A4
          >Kia Picanto
          >Toyota Aygo
          the steering is just dead, the brake pedal is soft, the clutch doesn't feel like it does anything, the gear shifting feels like stirring a spoon through porridge.

          You'll regret buying a proper car because you'll be disappointed if you ever have to go back to something boring.

          Also, horsepower alone can't make a car fun.

          I live in a place with loads of mountain passes around. It's good fun and no police around to spoil it.

          The suspension on the GR86 is tuned to be stiffer than the BRZ, so I'd go with that if you're looking to smile in every corner. It is comfortable enough for 1000mi road trips and offers decent (31) mpg if you're willing to stay around 70mph in the 6spd.
          The car also looks so much better in person than in the photos.

            BRZ is much cheaper and has the added bonus of aluminum front knuckles (not the tS though).
            If I've seen 100 GR86's since they went on sale, I've seen maybe 8 BRZ's in that same time frame

        They changed the name to MX5 becuase Miata sounded too gay.

        But back to the Cars. The BRZ has a lot of compelling features. It's RWD, manual and has large displacement 4 banger. These are all noble attributes. I'm certain the BRZ gets up a goes when you downshift it.

    If you want a single car that is fun and all-around liveable, get a Moostang Egobukkake. You can get a V8 too if you rly want, but coming from a Lexus CuckUV, the turbo 4 is plenty fast, 0-60 in 4.5 in the latest model. That's fricking quick for a 4cyl.

    If you a fancy nigguh get a BMW something or other. Will help with the ladies too if you haven't given up on that yet.

    Or you can do 2 vehicles: keep your Lexac**t and add a spurty weekend car of your choice. It can be as ridiculous and impractical as you want since you can keep cummuting and transportatin' in the LexXx

    Acquire one of the last 5k-10k Civic Si of any year you can get your hands on still and have fun playing the K20/K24 game until the stock of those runs dry too.

    Do it, and buy a cheap old beater pickup for when you have to haul something that won’t fit in the BRZ.
    Also as others have stated, look at Mustangs. Contrary to weeb belief, they can turn (with a few simple mods), have plenty of power, and have a tremendous aftermarket. Just adding some chassis bracing and IRS lockout to an S550 Mustang makes it a much better driving car for cheap.
    Also ignore gays trying to tell you BRZs are only for kids, that HP doesn’t matter, that you shouldn’t be having fun in your car etc. They’re just miserable and want to share

            yes, they're using the fa24 shortblock and fa20 heads. I'm actually not sure how they do it considering the bores are larger, they're being secretive about it.

            maybe it's the same kind of work done to use ej257 short blocks with ej20 heads in 02-05 wrxs (can't swap a full 2.5 into a 2.0 car easily without doing a frickton of wiring to get the sensors to work)
