    You already most likely have a really good idea of what to expect. I can tell you it doesn't disappoint. It was worth the wait.

    i've had the car for 4 months now for 3000 miles and it's been perfect .its black and a base model with the optional gr performance exaust . door edge guards , all weather mat package . the car wails like a banshee when you hammer it , a nice sound along with that exaust system .its fast ,nimble , responsive and beautiful and has a good 6 speed manual gear box . on good roads the ride is good but when the roads are sub normal it can be a little rough , but im not big on rough road comfort ride anyway . the seats are great , fit nice and are comfortable enough to take you a long distance .the sreering and handling are sublime and this car is so much fun ! the gas mileage is a lot better than what toyota advertises as the worst ive done is 24.9 and the best has been 30.4 fold down the rear seatback and you have lots of storage space . the rear seats are usless for human use unless you are an amputee or an infant . the radio is a disappointment as it is weak and that is about all i can complain about . i love this car !

    Great sports car for the $$ but needs improvement

    The GR86 is one of the most fun cars I have/had. The last sports cars RWD that I had was back in 07 when I scooped a 335I coupe (new) and shortly after in March of 08 a C6 Z06 (new). I think the GR86 has some designs flaws. The tachometer display is terrible on track mode, 1000 rpm to 4000 rpm is completely unreadable. There is almost no storage space at all. The 12v dc plug is completely hidden in the glove compartment and you have to pinch the cable if you plan to run the cable through the glove door. the design of the rear trunk door could have been so much better had they put a conventional hatch door instead of that tiny trunk door that you can barely fit anything over 15-18" in width. When you track the car(I do) your fingers are constantly hitting the phone call Botton because they place the button 1/2 inch from the steering. the TPMS wouldn't learn a second set of tires on the same frequency (315MHZ) therefore you have to go to have the TPMS re-learn every time you switch tires as the main TPMS module would quit reading the frequency. The stock tire section (215mm) is in my humble opinion inadequate for this chase . This car should be equipped from factory with at least 225mm or 235mm's section tires. The torque delivery has a dip in the midrange that is significant, you can see that on any dyno. A rear window wiper would have been nice. The brakes are adequate, nothing special, having switched pads from the track and back to street pads a few times you can tell that the oem pads feel is hard with small bite, consequently you have to push hard on the pedal. Power feels OK, not slow if you get the pedal to the metal but I do like that you can pull in traffic in 5th to 6th gear comfortably at 35mph and the engine pulls nicely. The gas tank is small, you will fill slightly over 12 gallons but compsumption is decent. I have been getting above 24mpg combined and sometimes 26-27 when I do light driving with a 50/50 city /rural road. The seats are exceptional, firm and gray specially with the Alcantara. I purchased my car with the premium package which I think is OK in some things but not so much in other areas like the stereo. The "premium" stereo is a little better than stock. I purchased my premium package mainly because of the looks of the 18" wheels, the Alcantara seats and the stereo which turned out to be not as good as advertised. You still get other smaller stuff like the rear taller spoiler which in my opinion looks great. As far is handling, this thing is extraordinary, you are seating low and the seats grabs you well. I have a set of lightweight wheels wrapped on sticky 255 tires and also I run race pads and race fluid and it out performs 95% of the cars at the track . You can literally toss the car left to right and it handles exceptionally. The weight and balance close to 50/50 and low center of gravity makes this car really good. You should look for a video from the chief engineer talking about why the GR86/BRZ did not get a turbo engine like on the WRX. Once you watch the video it will make a lot of sense to you. Basically they wanted to keep the low center of gravity and they wanted pure focus on handling, how so? well, by putting a turbo like the WRX they would have to raise the engine for ground clearance, then the hood would have to be raise, then the driver would have to seat higher to be able to see over the hood, then the roof would have to be higher so literally they made this car thinking of handling. if you ever see this car on a. cars and coffee you will see that the engine sits ridiculously low compared to the fenders. For the price range I think that this car beats anything out there. The closest thing is a Miata. Would I recommend it? I think so, if you want a fun car and you have a spare car to drive around too yes. This car is a bit tough to get in and out of it. I am average 5'10" and I have to squeeze my legs to get in but once you are ion you are OK. Apparently this car is going up in value, the reviews are great and the resale value is great also, dealers are having trouble keeping them on their lots. The competition is the GTI, the Civic SI, etc. The other cars offers more room. In summary, I couldn't give this car a 5 stars, there are some areas that could have been improved like the wider tires, the rear hatch, some interior design but for the price is a great sports car.

    Bought our 23 neptune blue gr86 without really even driving it. Love the handling and the actual feel of the road you get behind the wheel. Makes me smile every time I look at it or get in it!
