No. What does that have to do with anything?

Guys I wasn't hating, just found it funny, switching to a RWD car thats pretty low to the ground specifically for winter is not the norm.

maybe that's his only other car? at least he has winters on (assuming based on steelies). im sure winter tires for frs/brz is much cheaper than winters for an R8

No you don't, but my point was if you are going to have a winter car separate from your summer car, I would pick LITERALLY any drive type over RWD.

True, and those winters will make a world of difference.

The guy obviously just wanted people to know how baller he is with his R8 and winter "beater" BRZ. Let's all just hold hands and be friends.

not disagreeing with the r8 being more than capable as a winter daily driver, but given a choice, i would rather be in the brz rather than getting the r8 totaled after getting hit by someone on bad summer tires in the snow

Nope. Stock car had the stock Tiburon GT bumpers. He painted and installed the bumpers by himself . Massive props tho, cause I can't even seem to color match my rock chips
