Default New Purchase "Toyobaru" Inside

So, I go through cars like crazy. It's pretty sad, I've made tons of threads like these before.
*Disclaimer*
Saying Toyobaru is gay.
My car is stock.
I am not a photographer.
Game on.

I picked this up last Monday night. I really had no intentions on purchasing anything. I had just gotten done test driving a GTI. For weeks, I have been trying to hunt down a FR-S to drive just to see. After I drove it, I had to have it! This thing is loads of fun and probably one of the most responsive cars I have driven to date. It's comfortable, fun to toss around and I'm averaging about 29 mpg to and from work. You really can't beat it. At 2700 lbs 200hp doesn't feel too bad, but I'd still love some more power.

I'll probably make a build thread down the road, but the gameplan is as follows:
Forced Induction (Either the AVO turbo kit when it's released or TRD's Supercharger (just to maintain the warranty)
Wheels (Probably 18")
Wider Tires
BC/BR Coilovers
Tint

That's what's on my forefront currently. Feel free to make any suggestions.

On to the Eye Candy:



Because of the sun I had a hard time getting a decent shot from the rear of the car:

Love the color, the majority I see are red or black.

i personally don't care for the color, but these cars have good lines. and with the RIGHT wheels you could really make that color work. and forced induction sounds like what they should have had to begin with! nice purchase man.

edit, you missed covering your plates in two photos

That's because you JDM fruits thought you were going to get a Z06 / 911 competitor for $24,000.

So the hype of an affordable lightweight rear drive sports car was a let down for you once you found out they released a $24k rear drive 2700 lb sports car?

Just out of curiousity, what about them? I only ask because with the exception of the front fascia and hvac theyre nearly identical.

Don't be some kind of pompous ass about your Scion. $24k is a steep price tag for that car.

I didn't say anything about the drivetrain, weight, power, or price tag. I just don't like the way they look, period. They sit too high, the wheels look like cheap pep boys wheels, and the interior looks cheap.
