What I think bugs the piss out of me is the fact that everyone is seeming to rave about how the BRZ/FR-S is the Messiah of modern sports cars, when in all reality, it's just another entry-level sports car with a $3,000 higher price tag.

I like, don't like, know like, what you like, mean by boxy? Can you like, maybe like, explain further?
By shedding power seats in my car and getting a pair of Sparco Fighters, I could easily save some 140 lbs. Ditch the sunroof? Probably another 25 lbs. It all adds up... people don't realize. There's a reason the old CRX got awesome fuel efficiency.

I think he meant horizontal boxer motor.
