Awesome stuff as always from @MattMaran
Really too bad it still sounds like shite.... Like that blue though.

One reviewer who's bought one has had the dealer kill the sound augmentation and it actually sounds a lot better that way in-cabin.

interesting that he posted this last week, i.e. after driving the Z, and in praising it he compared it to his beloved Stang but never once mentioned the Z as another option.... Makes me wonder if in reality he's a bit cool on the Z, even if he gives it a fluff job in his upcoming review.

Looks like the battle of the twins is settled for all but extreme track junkies.... the BRZ just rides a lot better on real roads (plus it doesn't have that ridiculous doubled-up lip spoiler). Autoblog reviewer drove both back to back on the street:

BRZ also gets better tires than the 86. MPS4S vs whatever bullshit comes on the 86.

Thank you!

I actually drove the Z after my week with the BRZ, but as you can now see in my review, the pricing is my main sticking point with the Z.
