Eric 5pts I'll say it again.. If you think the BRZ somehow needs more power to be worth it you have NO CLUE WTF you're talking about period end of story. If you think the BRZ does need more power (probably due to ego reason) I suggest you actually read the reviews. There's a GOOD F'N reason for why the BRZ doesn't have a shit load of basically unusable for the street power. 200hp in a ~ 2800lb. car is just the right balance for the BRZ to be a blast as a daily driver. More power wouldn't do anything other than make the BRZ more front heavy screwing up its F/R weight distribution as well as boring because you wouldn't be able to open it up / exploit limits except for little short burst at a time unless you don't mind going to jail/ losing your license, etc. The same goes for the tires Subaru choose for the BRZ. The 215/45/17's allow the BRZ to easily break into a drift, oversteer, etc without having to exceed extremely high limits. Wider / sticker tires would make the BRZ produce quicker lap times sure but they would make the BRZ more fun / rewarding to drive. Most people don't seem to grasp these simple concepts apparently. Many ignorantly assume the car with the most HP, fastest, quickest, etc is somehow "superior" when in reality this couldn't be farther from the truth. Just take the Mazda MX-5 for example. The MX-5 is no where near the quickest car but it's still one of the best driver's cars ever. I'd rather drive an MX-5 over a 370Z, Mustang, Gen Coupe and ANY other car south of 50K for that matter. So your car is fast? And? What does it matter if it's shit to drive?
