The FRS is just simple. It is the transgender of the car world. You don't know if you should hang out with the BRZ, the boxer club, Scion, Toyota. Its confusing as an enthusiast to see which group will let you hang out and who you should associate with.
But the car is a driver's car. Besides small cosmetic issues, backseats as useless as man nipples, power that doesn't do it justice, and the tire size/wheels it comes with, it is a responsive, reliable car adapting to the end-users liking.
It's just simply simple. Steering is tight, you don't have any play, the car handles great considering the tire profile and small anti-sway bars, and the horizontally oppose 4 is something you can appreciate in time. I've stuck coils and bigger profile wheels and it exceeds my expectations.
When I was in the market for a new car, the FRS/BRZ didn't cross my mind. The dealership had one and I just simply couldn't resist the 6-speed vehicle, and decided to take it for a test drive. The seats sucked me in, the engine with that restricted boxer sound, and the softness of the suspension set-up really got me curious about the car.
The FRS is generally a friendly car with a lot of aftermarket support for the enthusiast, and just a good looking car for daily driving. There are plenty more powerful car on the market for the same price, but handling wise, the FRS gets a top notch vote.
