Here you go:

About $70. Mine is the EM Plus which was $10 more for some extra features I never use.

And then I also bought the vertical mount which works great:

Looks like the turbo upgrade will be happening much sooner than expected. VF48 paid for, just need to go have a look at an STi intercooler and Y pipe then we're pretty much good to go. Sourcing an STi hood scoop is a bit more difficult but it can probably wait for now.

Awesome!

Do I recall correctly that you also have a GT86 as well?
I am considering a 86 or BRZ as a runabout for my wife and have been wondering how suitable the rear seats are for kids.
I am pretty sure they would not mind riding on the bonnet if it meant that mom drops them off in one.

Yep, I do and loving it!

Those rear seats are tiny though - you could fit one behind the passenger and maybe one in the middle but my driver's seats is all the way up against the rear seat so no space for anybody there. It's definitely not the most practical car but it's awesome fun.

When I test drove the BRZ, my 8 year old son had to sit with his legs folded at the back.


Like Sav mentioned, if the driver and front passenger are tall, no space behind.


But you say your wife will be driving.
Depending on how many kids, I would go for it.


On a side note, I read that the BRZ has 154 KW compared to the 86 having 147 KW (I think)

Yep, because of the De Graaff developed performance exhaust which also eliminates the 2nd cat. No problem though, had the same fitted on mine and it sounds awesome. :D
