I think prius drivers are more jerks than any car on the road..They buy a car that cannot race but drive it around like a race car...
Truth. Prius drivers are the real menace.

So guys...forum war?lololol

But on a serious note I really dig the cars and certainly wouldn't mind rolling with them. There seems to be this random hate that popped up out of no where. Im going to try and catch a few on the roads here and chat with um and see whats up. Get some good words spread around haha.

I feel like the "hatred" that has popped up is a response to BRZ/FR-S owners knowing they own a car that every auto journalist has creamed their jeans over. You know what else gets really good reviews? Honda Accords. But you don't see a lot of Accord owners claiming they own a car that is inherently better than a C Class.

I feel that BRZ/FR-S owners disregard the fact that all the journalists say the BRZ/FR-S are great within their price range/market. No journalist says it's a better car than a 458 Italia. And that's the (perceived) issue. BRZ/FR-S owners think they own THE car. Period.

Obviously not everyone that drives a certain car is same. I maintain that I fall slightly short of douchey, even though I'm sure the dude in a Focus or some other commuter car thinks I am. I feel like BRZ/FR-S owners have just earned a stigma of being arrogant due to their "selective referencing" of journalist reviews to justify their confidence. As a Z owner I could harp all day on the advantages of my car and ignore the fact that at high RPM our engines sound like raccoons knife fighting each other, and say that my car is better than car X and car Y.

That's part of car culture, I guess. Enthusiasts develop emotional connections to their car. Hell, my last car was a 2003 Maxima, and I swore that thing could spank an M3 (not seriously). I like the BRZ/FR-S for what they are. But I personally couldn't pull the trigger on buying one. As a sports car it doesn't have enough grunt for me, and as a commuter car it's too impractical. MotorTrend just did a comparison between the FR-S and the GTI, on their YouTube channel, and the FR-S guy begrudging had to agree that the GTI is actually a better all around car.

I see a bunch of these, but not many kids owning them. Never have had anyone do a ricer flyby on me, in any car, surprisingly.





Yet.

+1 Even my Focus ST easily beats the Toyaburu twins around a track, the Z would demolish it. Unless maybe you are talking autocross, the twins have no chance.

They have an inferiority complex towards 370z drivers because of their lack of power?

The fr-s/br-z is like the new 240sx. They make everything for that car just like the 240sx. When I had my s-chassis cars I pretty much changed everything in them that could be modified. These cars are underpowered, have great handling and are fun to drive except that they need a lot of modification to make them go fast. If I wanted to modify everything about a car again I would have bought an fr-s/br-z. I got the z because modding gets old and I wanted something out of the box that required minimal mods to be just as fun.

There's people like that in every car type. Life is more enjoyable if you don't fret the actions of others.
