    OK, I wasn't on Price is Right, but it is a new car. My very fist brand new car. Only had 13 miles on it when I drove it off. I've already washed it, and put a couple of coats of wax on it. This is pre-wax.

    Very nice! Love the blue. I sat in the Toyota version but I'm too old to get in and out of that everyday.

    Can't see the pic but, based upon the comment above, I'm guessing brz? In any case, congrats on the brand new car! I've yet to get a brand new car but maybe one day enjoy your new ride!

    Right on :woot:

    Great cars. There is a BBC Top Gear test day where they put one around their airport track. Killer fully controlled drifts through the corners and good breaking. They said they designed the car to match the power to weight/ balance ratio to rear tire size width so it could kick the rear end out anytime you wanted to.


    Congratulations, what a smokin' first car ! I bet they are reilable as hell too, make a fun ass daily driver :headbang::headbang::headbang:


    Now go out and find a 3 Series Beemer to play with.:wink2:

    The Price Is Right is the first thought that automatically came to my mind when I saw your topic. ;) You knew that posters just may assume that your topic was going to be about The Price Is Right. Lol. :D I shudder to think of how many times "It's a brand new car!" has been said in the entire history of TPIR! :D :O Lord have mercy! It's got to be in the millions if not billions! :D :O

    Fun fun car! First time in a long time there we have a truly affordable sporty car along the lines of the early Zs and the first/second gen RX-7s. I tossed my nephew's FR-S around the hills of Portland right after he got it. Good stuff.

    Congrats man. I see a few modded ones around, and man they are nice. My first car I purchased new was the Honda S2000. This reminds me of it a little. I also modded that one like crazy. Those were the days...

    It's not my first car, but it is my very first brand new car. I'm really liking it so far. Still have a little bit of the break-in time, but once that's done, should be fun.

    I've had a RX7 and a RX8 before. The RX8 was the car I traded in for this one. And, the day that I picked up the BRZ I had to get my RX8 jumped because the battery was dead. I think that was a sign. :)

    Good for you... few things are better than the smell of a new vehicle. Plus I love the pride of taking care of a new car. Congratulations!!!

    Yeah, I've washed and waxed it a couple of times in just 3 months. I need to wash it again after all the rain we've had down here.
