    No Turbo = not worth the Price... spend 240k+ to go side ways, i'd use that money, make it into lose change and go for merry go round for couple of years non-stop...

    imagine buying that car.. on the highway see some cheapo cars... a fraction of its price.. u get smoked..

    haha... for UWM this car may be is not under their sale target mah... if told by Toyota-Japan to sale a xxx units a year, I think they will not consider to bring at all!! BTW this price also about the same in Siamland? also why a FD2R can do RM200k & most of us know/try/run with, it is a performance car, but the FT86/BRZ now is only "good" performance on Paper/TV Ad/Car review. Better wait & see.....

    but if from UMW view they r here to make $$ not Salvation Army leh.... to buy or not then that is up to we the end user, as some hardcore Toyota's Fans will sure consider this car. For me is PASS go home play GT5 FOC.

    Vic, you managed to drive it? EVO UK certainly gave it thumbs down. No power. Plain and simple.

    Tony, after the GTR 35, even if this car is 50% cheaper with 100% more power, it'd still can't excite you I imagine :)

    lets hope the government policies might change for the next car. I can't help but actually laugh at some of the replies by the keyboard warriors here.

    It's plain simple. If your main aim is to tailgate everyone on Federal Highway and win traffic-light drag races. This isn't your car. For the others that drive responsibly and love the occasional fun cornering feeling (actually its more like quite often as this car achieves that "fizzy" sensation even at low speeds) this is the car. The only other new car that comes close to this fun feeling is a BMW 1M which is double the price. You can compare this car to the Golf R, Scirocco, Megane RS 250, BMW 3 series, Mercedes C250, Proton Preve, but none actually comes close to this car once you've driven it. Only downside is the useless rear seats, but its actually pretty good for a young family with infant kids (seats fit the toddler chair nicely), otherwise ditch the girlfriend and be a forever alone virgin for a few more years, its worth it.

    P.S. those complaining of the lack of power and noise, you do know that this is a Toyota/Subaru, which has endless possibilities of tuning right?:driver:
