Yeah on Sunday drove next to a older fellow probably in his early 30's driving on highway 1 towards metro town..overall my impression from when I saw it driving was sits very low to the ground but is in dier need of new rims and maybe some coilovers to get rid of the gross wheel gap...

I haven't driving one yet since the one here in Langley is an auto and rather drive the standard one to see how it performs..

Tested it today at OpenRoad Scion, love the handling, though the inside could be a bit nicer, I guess that's the trade-off for a cheap but fun car. Very tempting, but the waitlist is for another 3-4 months.

I thought the FRS/BRZ only comes in manual. Does the auto shifter look like the Camrys or tC?

Five Axis/FIVE:AD teamed up with Capcom to create the 25th Anniversary Street Fighter Scion FR-S. Inspired by the Street Fighter character "Ryu", this FR-S is equipped with a FIVE:AD aero kit/spoiler, R5:F wheels and more.

Not sure if I like the two tone paint...

Took it for a spin around the neighbourhood with my father (just like that dad/son subaru commercial heheh).
it's a fun car he loves the styling of it.

With how well the car has been reviewed in stock form for being fun and playful, I wonder how things will change with a set of 'real' wheels and tires. Most reviews seem to note that power is adequate, but with 18's or even 19's and some suitable rubber to match, hopefully this doesn't make the car too sluggish

I think that is going to be a common mistake when people modify the FRS/BRZ. If consideration of wheel weight and tire diameter isn't taken into account, the balance could suffer. The car was a BLAST to drive on the crappy stock rubber. I also think one modification that will be very popular is a new flywheel. It felt way way way too heavy for the power of the car.
