SEE THE NEW UPDATED VIDEO PART 2:
Amazing Comments About Review:
"He has no camera presence, a foul mouth, doesn't appear to really excel
in automotive knowledge"
"Judging by way you present and deliver your arguments, the only cars youve
been in is the backseat of your friends as they drive you to and from the
7-11. In order to successfully give a review, you must have some sort of
platform to make the reader/viewer think you know what you are talking
"It is a torture to listen to him speaking, let alone review a car. "
"No it just sucks donkey **** even more after that. I want 6 mins of my
life back that I wasted staring at this crap."
"Nothing to see here, just some balding middle-class suburbanite with a
video camera, internet connection and the belief that people care about
what he has to say instead of leaving it to the professionals. I'm stunned
I sat through the whole thing to be honest."
"This guy talks about cars the same way that a man would explain to his
wife how he just gave her a VD. "um, well.... uh"

Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick
shift? Ending the debate!
For the true enthusiast, the clutch pedal and gear stick or shifter are a
JOY to use...NOT a burden. Traffic is the one exception but we are talking
about the car enthusiast. We drive fr PLEASURE, NOT to get to work or get
groceries. So traffic is not an issue when it's 7AM on a Saturday or Sunday
and you are headed to your favorite country road.
For the enthusiast, the clutch pedal is a PLUS not a minus. It is a
critical part of what makes driving a stick shift an art. Automatic is
email and manual is a hand written note. A dying art that is much more
involved and personal than email.
Making a perfect shift, makes me smile like NO paddle shift will EVER do!
Manual is a piano played with a live band, automatic is one man with a
Casio keyboard in his basement with automatic accompaniment generated by
the keyboard. The feeling of playing a complex piece correctly dwarfs any
reward of pressing ONE note and having the Casio keyboard play a bunch of
Is a paddle shift a manual transmission?
Being able to request gears manually does NOT make a transmission
automatic. Remember in the automatics from the 80s you had "2" "L" "R"? So
automatics have allowed you to "change gears" since the 80s. This is just
like modern paddle shifters do.
NOTE: A sequential gearbox is NOT the same as the classic automatic
gearbox, but the point is, you could ALWAYS select/request gears in
automatics. So the ability to SELECT gears does not make it manual. You
need the ability to physically disengage the clutch by moving the throw out
bearing and also to physically change the actual gears. This is all
mechanically done, not electronically. It requires focus, finesse,
strength, timing and skill and it's rewarding to do correctly.

The 450 HP Crawford Performance Turbo BRZ - /TUNED
We love the FRS and BRZ twins; they offer an approachable limit of
performance and phenomenal dynamics in an affordable package. And we
learned earlier this season that a bolt-on turbo kit will add to the FRS's performance
without taking away from it's character. But what happens when you double
the BRZ's horsepower and triple it's
torque? We find out.

I finally got my 2013 Scion FR-S!!! It's an amazing car, 6 speed manual
gearbox, Torsen LS rear differential, and the BeSpoke audio upgrade! The
car is perfect for me, seeing how it was the only one the dealership had,
in the exact color I wanted, with the exact transmission I wanted, with the
exact radio I wanted! Sounds like a sign to me lol. So we bought it and I
love it, er, I mean her! Still trying to give her a name... Hmm.....
Anyways, enjoy looking at her!

you purchase anything from them, they'll hook you up!
2013 Subaru BRZ vs Scion FR-S 0-60 MPH Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The almost identical 2013 Subaru BRZ and the 2013
Scion FR-S herald the return of the light and affordable rear-wheel drive
sports car. Jointly developed by Toyota and Subaru there's very little that
separates the two twins except for minor suspension differences. But since
both cars can be purchased as with either an automatic transmission or a
manual one we of course want to know which one is faster to 60 @1 mile above sea level...the
automatic Subaru BRZ or the 6-speed manual Scion FR-S? Check out this fun
TFLcar Mashup Review to find out.

differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it

exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have

today. No manuals at the moment but has next-gen brilliant pedal-shift
automatic box. Perfect rev matched downshifts, super quick upshifts.

2013 Subaru BRZ Test Drive & Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/subaru/brz/2013/ The 2013 Subaru BRZ, along with
its twin brother, have been named to Autobytel's Car of the Year List. The
BRZ is the first rear wheel drive sports car that Subaru has developed in
over 50 years. The BRZ is all about balance and handling. The Boxer engine
has a flat design and allows for the center of gravity to be lower in this
car. The 2013 Subaru BRZ is a real driver's car and with a base price of
$25,494 that is well within reach of most enthusiasts.
Take a car that has RWD, a manual transmission, and the engine up front;
add those things together and you have a recipe for an exciting sports car.
Toyota and Subaru have joined forces to produce such a vehicle. We have
already tested the Scion FR-S now let's take a look at what makes the 2013
Subaru BRZ such and amazing car. From afar the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ
look almost identical. But up close you will notice the front end differs a
bit between these 2 automobiles. The BRZ sports classic Subaru Blue Paint,
along with the diamond cut grille inserts in the bumper.
Under the hood the award winning FA20 engine is a horizontally opposed 2.0
liter flat-4 Boxer. This engine produces 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft. of
torque. You can pick between a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Fuel economy is excellent at 25 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway.
The 2013 Subaru BRZ differs most from the Scion FR-S when it comes to the
interior. The BRZ has a standard navigation screen and leather wrapped
steering wheel and shift knob. The BRZ has a cool push button start and
aviation style switches. The 2013 Subaru BRZ packs more standard features
and options than the Scion FR-S.
The Subaru BRZ is a pure driving car. It's a blast to take out on the road.
The 6-speed manual is near perfect with its show throws. The pedals are
perfectly placed for heel-tow downshifts. The brakes are responsive and the
steering is direct. This car is all about having fun.
