    I don't really care for the headlights. The face in general just feels a little bit off. But it's not bad.

    I like the mechanical changes that 359 details, though.
    Get that weak shit off my track

    I like it, and it seems like a hell of a bargain.

    I think it looks great, headlights and rear. Much better in video and, I'm sure, in-person. It stirs the same feelings in me that my current one does.

    I think it's only Pilot Sport 4, not Pilot Sport 4S, tyres? I agree with the former, not the latter.

    Designing and planning for a front number plate mount is absolutely fine with me, as front number plates are compulsory in Japan, and in every country where I'm likely to every own a car (probably most countries in the world I think, although somewhat oddly apparently this won't be sold in the UK - maybe only the Toyota version will be). It's a better approach than the Alfa 156, which had a beautiful front which was ruined by the front number plate.

    But will it come in green? Probably not but ya know I can dream.

    I like the looks of it. And I like that it has a bit more power and torque but will that be at the price of weight. We shall see.

    Huh?

    Available colour is not an issue. Respray if you must.

    "... at the price of weight"? It's 15lb heavier than the old one.

    Subaru even managed to keep the BRZ's curb weight from doing anything silly. The 2020 model was listed at 2,798 pounds with the manual transmission; that climbs to just 2,815 for 2022. This effectively means you're getting more horsepower and more torque without any appreciable weight penalty, and Subaru didn't even have to resort to a more complex turbocharged engine in order to do it.
    I saw an 80lb difference being thrown around somewhere, but even that's de minimis.

    It is an issue. Car manufacturers have basically abandoned the color green. And it it is my favorite color. I was just bringing up as a joke, for the most part.

    And it is good to hear the weight is pretty much the same. The videos posted yesterday and the Subaru site says nothing about the weight.
