I thought you already ordered a BRZ like me?
I have.

Its a long story but I put a deposit down on the GR86 in 2020, then one on the BRZ, thinking I would check them out and drive them back to back basically then get the one I wanted (I have test drive as a get out clause on both orders).

The GR86 delay meant I couldn't do that.

So instead I'm buying the BRZ, but I'm not dropping the GR86 pre-order (Its probably one of the first 5 in the country), then I will test drive it whenever we get them, and flip the BRZ (which will still be rare as hens teeth) if I really like the GR86 more.

Personally I really need to get in front of both cars. I much prefer the GR86 branding, its startup sequence and its car club. I'm even on looks. I much prefer the BRZs evolved chassis.

So we will see. One thing I know for sure is that I will own a BRZ!

I previously owned an 86 and my "86" number plates will still be going on the BRZ when it arrives.
I like both looks wise so not fussy there and in reality I would have gone with which ever one released first originally, but after the reviews I have seen, since I use it as a daily drive, the BRZ just seems to be the better choice so I am glad it will arrive first.
I do wonder just how many GR86 will arrive for Australia compared to the 500 BRZ. I expect the GR86 to be more "common" compared to the BRZ
This was my 86

In Australia the 86 outsold the BRZ 5-1, mostly from the initial few years where the 86 hit like 16k cars in its first 3 years.

It was a bit closer in the US.

Oh, and also - I like your 'accessories' =D

It means they aren’t sure. I’m expecting January for both though if the order books open.

Wow those bronze wheels! I would definitely option a set of those. Especially being 17in, they'll allow a little more daily driver compliance/comfort. Then have a separate set of track wheels/tires.

I wonder if the 17in bronze wheels would only come in the primacies..? Either way, would love them.

I'm thinking they'd look really good on a halo white or trueno blue GR86. Thoughts?

Side note, idk about that shift knob... the top being flat and recessed kind of puts me off. I'll have to see more pictures.
