Upon further reading it looks like Subaru did design the chassis. That's my bad, I asked the coworker who owners it why they didn't make it awd and that's what he told me. Just figured he'd know since he did research before he bought it but I guess not rolleyes.gif

Either way, I think it wouldn't hit the same goals as it did with the current car if they decided to make an AWD version. Besides, this car is "based" on the original AE86 corolla and I think it hit a lot of the positive aspects of the original car. TBH, after a test-drive of the FR-S, I still felt my original AE86 Corolla felt much, much more exciting than this new car, but that is to be expected as safety wasn't really a priority back then. Still a great car and I will certainly buy one... Eventually

Any pics of the ae86? I almost picked one up a little while back as a project but decided to go a different direction.

No unfortunately. I only had the AE86 for a few months during highschool as a learners car. I REALLY don't understand why I didn't take any pics of it on another camera... I took pics of it on my Sony C902 camera, but someone stole that and now I have an iPhone. High school kids logic tongue.gif. Now I'm older and wiser! Now I'm driving a '00 Legacy GT that I just went snow hunting last week in around the famous Vancouver Ski Mountains. I can gladly provide some juicy pictures of that.

 

EDIT: oops, my plate numbers are showing... Meh, I'm not doing anything illegal

You should upgrade your headlights and fog lights to HID 6000k. They would look awesome on your car.

You can't see it properly through my iphone camera and angle, but I do have PIAA yellow fogs. I was thinking of getting HID for the low-beam, but never made the initiative... Maybe I should because it's close to winter now biggrin.gif

Nice pic's. Subaru's are solid and have that nice combination of fun and class. If I lived in the mountains I would definitely have one.

Thanks, they are fun little machines, especially in the snow and rain! Controllable Oversteer in slippery conditions, safe Understeer in dry. I live on a mountain and I the famous West Coast mountains so... Yea it's nice to have the extra grip

Don't even think about installing HIDs unless you get proyector headlights. Coming from an HID user (previous owner had them installed and i've been too lazy to go back to stock or upgrade the headlights).

What do you mean by proyector?

I think he means "projector" which is a type of headlight housing which uses a lens rather than a reflector to channel light. HIDs were never made to be used in reflector housings and blind oncoming traffic as a result. Projectors have the correct cutoff for HID lights and are therefore safer and not illegal unlike the alternative.

I don't know about the rules and laws in your area, but where I live HIDs are perfectly legal, projector or no projector. And it's stupid to get "projectors" for my car. Gotta keep it OEM/JDM, none of the aftermarket-philia crap. I was going to get Phillips HID kit, maybe 7000k? But with that said, I know that over a certain "k" is illegal.

I'm not sure if you are being serious (especially on that bolded part since putting in the HIDs would be "aftermarket-philia crap") but if you run 7000K HIDs with no projectors that's boarding on what I would consider rice-tastic. You are gonna be blinding anyone in front of you with a wall of purplish glare that is not focused in anyway. And in the US (west coast at least) running that system would not necessarily get you pulled over but if you do get pulled over for another violation they will tack on a Fix-It ticket as well (you can have HIDs but they MUST be adaptable/adjustable and have a projector.
