First Easy Mods to the BRZ!
While I'm saving for an Exhaust I
decided to do a few free/cheap mods! First was to customize the start-up
screen on the nav unit. I also replaced the interior lights and license
plate lights with super white LED bulbs. Thanks to Meng Motorsports for
supplying the LEDs, check out their website if you want to buy these bulbs
or other parts for your Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S. mengmotorsports.com

Backroads Drive in the BRZ at Dusk
Sorry for the wind noise! I'm using the Wifi Backpac on my GoPro and there
currently isn't a wind sock for it! I've come up with a solution to
eliminate the noise for the next GoPro video. Also, I realize this isn't
the most exciting video but I thought you'd still enjoy seeing it. "Like"

2013 Subaru BRZ vs Porsche 911 Carrera S Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Most people certainly won't cross shop a 2013
Subaru BRZ and the all new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Yet in many ways the two
cars are very similar. They both have a similar type of flat engine, they
both seat 2 comfortaby but you can get 4 people into the cars in a pinch,
and they are both are classic rear wheel drive sports cars. Of course the
Porsche cost 4X the money and has exactly 2X the horsepower of the BRZ and
yet it is currently and possibly the most desired car by twenty something
year olds. The Porsche is verging on super car status and yet it is
possibly the most desired car by forty something year olds. Check it out as
we mashup these two cars in this Mile High review to see what makes them so
similar to each other.

The Subaru BRZ Concept STI is the second FR car from Subaru - the first
being Subaru's first car ever, the Subaru 1500. BRZ stands for "Boxer,
Rear-wheel drive, Zenith," or "Boxer Renaissance Zenith." The Toyota 86 is
a sports car developed jointly by Japanese automobile manufacturers Toyota
and Subaru. It has 2+2 seats, a 2-door coupé body style and a
front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.
The model will be sold under three different brands: Toyota (Toyota 86 in
Japan and Australia and Toyota GT-86 in Europe), Subaru (Subaru BRZ) and
Scion (Scion FR-S).
"86" (pronounced "eight-six" or Hachi-Roku (ハチロク)) refers to the
Toyota Corolla Levin series AE86 and the Toyota Sprinter Trueno series
AE86, a particular series of cars sold between 1983 and 1987 (The Trueno
was a hatchback, and the Levin had a trunk ). As such, the Toyota 86 has
been named as the spiritual successor of the original AE86 during the press
release of the 86.
The signifigance of the reference to the series AE86 was that both the
Trueno and Levin of this series were the last with rear wheel drive; the
following Sprinter Trueno and Corolla Levin series AE92 were released with
front wheel drive thereafter.
The Toyota and Scion have little distinguishing elements - the latter has
cheaper pieces to reduce base price in the United States. The Subaru BRZ
differs mainly in its front end, where the grille has an hexagonal shape
versus an inverted trapezoid in the Toyota and Scion, along with the
placement of the BRZ as the most luxurious variant of the platform, with
more standard features and a higher suggested price than the
Toyota-marketed versions.
In Japan, it will be exclusive to Toyota Japan dealerships called Netz
Store locations, which uses the same sales approach used at North American
sales channel called Scion.
It was first presented as a concept car at the October 2009 Tokyo Motor
Show under the name Toyota FT-86, FT being shorthand for "Future Toyota".
Later, a high-performance version was launched at the January 2010 Tokyo
Auto Salon as the Toyota FT-86 G Sports. At the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, a
third concept car was shown, the Toyota FT-86 II. The BRZ and FR-S also had
their concept cars, the Subaru BRZ Concept STI and the Scion FR-S Concept.
The production version of the 86, BRZ and FR-S were unveiled at the 2011
Tokyo Motor Show.
Initially, the 86 and sister models will feature a Subaru-sourced naturally
aspirated 2.0 L flat-4 boxer gasoline engine (Toyota engine code 4U-GSE,
Subaru engine code FA20) that will deliver 200 PS (147 kW; 197 hp) that
includes a direct injection system from Toyota. The model will be offered
with two six-speed transmissions: a manual and an automatic with paddle
shifters. The weight of the 86 is 1,180 to 1,250 kilograms (2,600 to 2,760
lb) depending on specification and equipment. 
Satsuki Shimabukuro (島袋 さつき Shimabukuro Satsuki?, born 28 May
1988), better known by her stage name Meisa Kuroki (黒木 メイサ Kuroki
Meisa?), is a Japanese actress, model and singer born in Nago, Okinawa,
Japan. She is represented by the agency Sweet Power and is signed to Sony
Music Japan. She made her acting debut in 2004. She has modeled for the
popular Japanese fashion magazine JJ, among others, and is the current
Japanese representative for Epson and Giorgio Armani. She has appeared in
numerous television dramas, commercials, films, and stage productions.
In addition to her modeling work for the fashion magazines JJ and 25ans,
Kuroki has released two photobooks, one of her own, Love Meisa, and a joint
one, Missmatch, with her best friend and actress, Maki Horikita,
photographed by Kishin Shinoyama. In 2009 Kuroki was chosen as the Japanese
face of international fashion brand, Emporio Armani, and she also appeared
in numerous events for the brand worldwide. In 2010 Kuroki was chosen
as the international face of French cosmetic brand, L'Oréal.

2013 Subaru BRZ top speed run
Follow me on Facebook and Instagram!
Facebook.com/JTPhotos / Instagram @speedracer38
At the end of May I got a call from the Subaru dealership telling me my
2013 BRZ Limited had arrived and was ready for me to take delivery. After
a grueling 1,000 mile break-in period I was looking forward to see what the
car was capable of. I shipped the car to the autobahn to do some high
speed runs in the car and attempt the top speed. The car is limited by its
aerodynamics unfortunately so I had to get a good stretch which favored the
car which allowed me to get up to 147 MPH. This isn't very high speed
compared to other exotic cars but for a 200HP Subaru I was very impressed
seeing what it's capable of on the top speed spectrum! For those of you
who don't know this is a rear wheel drive Subaru and the car is fantastic
to drive along with drifting ;)

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.

Scion FR-S Test Drive & Driving Impressions
Experience the new Scion FR-S from the driver's seat.
I took a test drive the other day and filmed my impressions so my
girlfriend could get a feel for the car. She just got her wisdom teeth
taken out and wasn't in any shape to go on a test drive so I came to her
rescue and made this video of the experience.
Shameless plug: If you're local, around SE Michigan, be sure to ask for
Jamar Daniels at Victory Toyota of Canton, MI for information &
availability on the Scion FR-S. Had a great experience with him, he was
very helpful and generous with his time.
1. It has four wheels, which seemed very round when I inspected them.
2. Doors with which to enter and leave the car (you don't have to enter
through the windows or the top or bottom of the vehicle)
3. While driving the car, there is a round knob (though not as round as the
wheels) that controls the wind inside the car. The wind can be a mild
breeze, or a vicious tsunami blowing from little holes in the front
console. It can be cool or warm, and you can direct the wind. It makes you
feel very powerful.
4. There is also another button that lets you listen to people talking and
singing in the car, I believe Jamar called this a radio. This device only
allows for listening, and is therefore a one-way conversation. I tried
talking back to the people in the "radio" and they either couldn't hear me
or didn't feel like responding. I imagine they have a lot of people trying
to talk to them through the "radio." If you don't have a lot of friends and
want someone who never stops talking, this radio device is probably a good
thing for you to order.
5. The cloth seats have a red stripe on them. I assume that this is
probably from the animal's skin that was used to make them. The red stripe
tells me that the animal was fierce and vicious, trying to warn its
predators of it's danger with a warning color, much like bees and the
yellow jackets they wear. However, it mustn't have been a match for the
Scion hunters, as I hear many FR-S's are filled with seats made from this
In short, the FR-S makes me feel like an ancient hunting warrior that can
control wind, talk to spirits, and chase down fast dangerous animals.
Enjoy the video, I hope you find it helpful in your quest of filling the
empty void in your heart with a lightweight rear wheel drive sports coupe.
Think Twice Before Passing The Police
This occurred on I-295 N in West Deptford/Westville area around mile post
24. The New Jersey State Trooper was going 60 mph. The posted speed limit
at the time was 50 mph due to it being a work zone even though the work was
finished the signs were still posted.

Subaru BRZ / Acceleration / Top Speed / Exhaust Sound
Subaru BRZ - onboard Autobahn Test - Exhaust Sound -
top speed 230 km/h
acceleration 0-100 in 7,6s
The Brz could have more power. A Subaru Brz turbo version with Supercharger would be amazing.
