my friend just purchased a blue BRZ. Very excited, especially since I convinced him too! His budget was around 25k and he wanted something fun. He was going to originally get something boring like a civic but I convinced him to try it out and he fell in love!
Hopefully once he learns stick I can go to a drag strip and race him. Of course, on a track he would kick my ass xD.
Curious to see how a manual BRZ will go against my auto 128i. I should be able to edge him out, although he can do a quick launch.
I started saving my pennies so next year I can buy either a 235i or a BRZ WRX STI
