I'll just say we're working on it. No insurance fraud

They do offer policies at the track. If I weren't such an idiot I would have bought one.

I think someone should develop a full chassis rigidity package for the CB. Chassis design has come a long way in 30 years. Just kind of a bummer it's sooooooooo heavy.

I punked out and got a Kia Optima. In retrospect, I probably should have got an ES350 or TLX. But life is nothing if it's not an adventure :) Gas seems to be creeping up and I've already done 2...

I guess it depends on your long term plans for the car. I hope to keep the Lexus for a very long time. Maybe never sell it if I really like it. Only gripe will be gas consumption. But I'd put about...

If the price is right I'd consider it, but honestly Yellows are worth the cost.

I've seen those on CBs. They are close to stock, they should absolutely fit.

Same reason they don't build the BRZ with Koni shocks or Brembo brakes in the base model....

COST :D

I imagine it's no different than the fluid they use in other Subarus so it may be a design issue.

They are loud cars in general. Probably the one deal breaker for me.

With bolt ons and a tune you should hit 190WHP... basically the exact power/weight of a tuned H22 Accord. Should be a mid 14 second car with Cayman grade handling.

This doesn't make sense... if you buy these, that's $120 more you will have to save to get the good stuff. Why not just wait?

A good point. Man it is crazy how standards change, but the BRZ is slow in the context of 7 second minivans and 5 second pickup trucks.

I still like the 1 series idea. E46s are a little too old... the N52 engine is pretty solid and has a lot of bolt on headroom. Also kind of important...

DOHC i-VTEC probably helps manage lag and spread boost around so I guess it's OK. And Honda is usually very good with stock suspension tuning. I don't doubt that it's a great package out of the box,...

Older ones are dirt cheap... I'm seeing '13s for $13K. A low mile S2K will cost a good bit more than that. Though to be fair the S2K is appreciating in value while the FRS etc. is depreciating.

You will probably get more from the H23/F22A6 hybrid intake, a ground cam, and full exhaust. Hell you can skip the cam and run all that on a stock PT6 ECU. I had that setup back in the day and it was...
