but overall, \_(ツ)_/

Spoiler!
I think all of us first gen owner is waiting on whether this new headlight will fit the old bumper. Judging from the pictures it should. This new headlight on the first gen would look hot and sucks for all the aftermarket headlight maker if that's the case.

The new transmission change though is also interesting. Other than the gear ratio change there seems to be changes made for durability and better shifting. The transmission is probabaly he one thing that I really want improve yet isn't easily done aftermarket.

A main concern i would see is the price of them from dealerships, might still be better off financially wise to just get aftermarket ones, but i guess time will tell.

Im pretty interested in the transmission change as well. I wonder if they're keeping the 4.10 rear end and possibly raising the individual gear ratios themselves. Could potentially be a good swap for people adding forced induction to the stock motor.

Spoiler!


I have to say, I'm actually liking the 86 facelift more than the BRZ, feels a lot bolder and dynamic, especially with the the bottom portion of the 86 bumper sticking out so far like a lip.

EDIT: A lot more real-life pics of the 86, the facelift looks so aggressive from certain angles, do like
