    Nah. I decided I'll beat on the stock wheels for 2 years with the PSSes. I may change the wheels in the future to 18s if I feel the need to, but I don't want to change too much at one go.

    The PSSes (stock size on stock rims) went on this morning. The guy forgot to check the rear tyre pressure(?) and I didn't have time to do so, and I didn't really have a chance to drive it in anger. That aside, I immediately noticed sharper-feeling turn-in, much less chance of chirping the tyres, and generally better steering feedback (the trade-off being an extremely slightly harsher ride at low speeds). At the same time, for some reason it feels slightly vaguer around the centre, but only insofar as it is much more confident at more extreme angles. Greg, I see what you mean about improving steering feel. I think that if I did those mods, the car would get EVEN MORE H4RDC0R3!1111!!11!1!1!1!! Would camber bush on its own (without your specialist springs) be sufficient?

    Yeah, I can't really think of a good way to exciting pictures of my new tyres...

    2015s are coming out, and from what I'm reading on the forums, there are a few changes coming, at least for the JDM market:

    * Satin White Pearl replaced by Crystal White Pearl
    * Sterling Silver Metallic replaced by Ice Silver Metallic
    * Shark fin antenna standard
    * New design bolts for front and rear struts. Toyota offering to change the bolts on existing cars for 1000yen ($10).
    * New 10-spoke style of 17" standard rim alongside the ones we already have
    * Red or carbon-trimmed interior
    * Optional 18" BBS rims
    * Optional Sachs shock absorbers





    The shark fin, as is, wont be coming to the US, it's too small to fit the XM antenna. The Crystal White Pearl also sounds like is an extra cost option, while the current Satin White is at no extra price.

    No word on what is in store for the BRZ, other than the existence of a third model code for the BRZ Limited beyond the 6MT and 6AT versions.

    Those wheels are a hell of a lot better than the current ones!

    Actually I think the current ones look fine in person. Not that I'd turn down a free set of Prodrives or Wedsports, mind.

    Scion has let out a bit on the 2015 for the US:

    http://www.scion.com/cars/coming_soon/

    FR-S Release Series 1.0. Basically everything from the FR-S Monogram series (leather, HID headlights, push button start), plus a new yellow paint, TRD bodykit, lowered suspension, TRD steering wheel and shift knob, and quad exhaust.

    If I manage to sell both my mum's houses (good luck ... small town), I will be in a financial position to get a GT86.

    So very much want.
