So I picked up my "GT86" in the beginning of October 2013. So far I am really impressed with her handling attributes. All broken in now pressing 1800 miles. I don't plan on getting to in depth with the car as it's going to be my daily. Just the basics (exhaust, intake, suspension..more then anything cosmetics.)

(Here's my continually revised rendition of the FR-S via Gran Turismo 5..a little lame but yeah lol)

Cool little cars, I see a few tootin around here, mostly stock. Tons of aftermarket support for them, probably the most I've ever seen for a car not even a year old yet.

Yeah the support for that car is crazy. I have to get one at some point; I can only imagine what it is like to have a supported car.

It is funny how 2700LBs is light and the FRS is considered small. But compared to everything else out there on the market now...

Yeah it's crazy with the market it has acquired in such a short time. . it'll be a new avenue for me since the Starion is my first car. I'm anxious to get into the new and improved 86, going through the reviews both video and from owners and it's been primarily positive. So yeah. . it's a little odd at first I didn't even like them much but that was the same thing that happened with the Mitsubishi. Now I'm in love with it. .

I sat in one when we bought my lady's CRV from a Subaru dealership. They are really neat cars. If it weren't for the weather up here I'd consider one.

Thank you sir. I am really surprised I even got approved, without a co-signer or help.. was completely on my own. I was just going out on a limb because the limited time rate my credit union had was so good I had to try for it. Good thing for prioritizing my credit.

Here's another photo from last night..bare with me I still need to learn how to shoot the lines of this car...it's a bit more "swoopy" then the Starion.

I'm pricing out a Borla exhaust (as it's the only sound I like with this 2.0 boxer) but jeez it's expensive. I'll have to add it in sections..

You know honesty the StarQuest isn't that bad at all.  It takes a different approach is all but as long as you have your pedal control down I find it rather fun as well. Yes its heavier and brakes wear quicker but still I like both of the cars characteristics. Each have their pros and cons you know

Yeah the more I look at it the more I like it.  Ahah.  I do have a spoiler though? Do you mean up front? If so that's in the future as well as some eibachs.
