It's flawless, delivered 100% on everything we hoped for. Felicia just wanted a fun manual car. I offered her an E46 M3, Mustang GT etc, she said no way in hell. The 86 is fun and sporty but it's also quiet and comfortable as a daily driver.

It's also a perfectly balanced package on track. Everything is matched. It's not powerful, fast, grippy or hard braking. It's fast enough, grips well enough and brakes well enough (well, this part I want to improve a smidge with some ProjectMu HC+, the pads weren't the happiest with 2 days of non-stop action - being tagteamed by 2 people). If you added more power, you'd want more tire, if you added more tire, you'd want more suspension etc. And you'd just end up with another heavy fast car. This thing is just smiles - it won't make you poop yourself with crazy speed or pull your face off under braking or cornering, just make you smile with how well it listens to what you want to do.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still looking forward to unlimited power in the E30 but the BRZ made me remember how much fun a car like this can be. It's kinda like watching porn vs watching WB cartoons - the latter can be great too.

What's left to do on your E30? Plans/goals?

don't ask

So, with r-comps and pads the BRZ should be pretty good. Future track only car?
I bet the aftermarket support for it is going to be crazy.

I just did! C'mon fess up.

Never. Whenever she sees me with a suspension kit, BBK, turbo kit, bodykit for the BRZ on screen, she reminds me that the car stays bone stock. But dreaming is fun! There are already people making mid 400s on it. This guy says it's the best breathing head of any Subaru (same turbo kit makes 100hp more than STI):
