    Does it need better brake cooling or just better brakes period?

    Why is the A pillar trim blacked out on that car but not in any of the other photos of your FR-S?

    Wow, fsunole, good eye!

    I recycled that photo from an old post and must've blacked it out as a styling exercise.

    Thanks, Mark. I actually like it better like that. With some dark tints the it looks very 370z esque (a quit photoshop I did: http://imm.io/1m8kJ)

    Quick*. You guys need an edit system :)

    I think we'd all be very sad to know just how many people ARE fooled by the faux carbon-fiber trim. I've seen enough Corollas with blue and white roundel badges around here to know some people are pretty confident of the things you can convince people of.

    One big thing I would not miss...a track-day toy the does not come with track-day-caliber power, brakes or tires.

    Engine sound - I've never liked the sound of an opposed engine, whether it's a Porsche, old Beetle, or Subaru.

    They sound good with an unequal length exhaust manifold.
