Scion FR-S with Exige

I have sold my 2010 hyundai Genesis Coupe for a 2013 Firestorm Scion FR-S.

The Scion is a wonderful car and I love it as much as my Exige except that it need an extra 50-100HP.


Here are some shots I took yesterday before winter.

The Black FR-S belong to my little brother.
We are doing a nice team now.

If I sell my Honda CBR600RR I could buy and install a turbo kit for the FR-S.

If I dont do that it will not be tolerate by my girfriend...

I will have to take a decision next summer about that....Not an easy choice...

The FR-S will also be stored for winter season.

I will drive my girlfriend's hyundai Elantra for 5 months.

Congrats, nice lineup. I bought a BRZ Limited as a companion to my Exige a couple months ago and I love it.

Don't store it for the winter - buy some winter tires in cheap rims and enjoy. That's my plan. Just picked up a second set of stock wheels on Friday.

Nice that means we both have the same cars combo.

I can tell you that you have some good taste my friend.

Post pictures of your babys together here !

We wanna see that.

I like the FR-S too much to drive it in winter into the salt and rocks.

It is against my nature.

There are at least two others here who also own the same combo, and a couple who are looking into buying an FR-S/BRZ. The cars seem to speak to the same people.

Will do. It should be a lot of fun. I'm loving it for general street use.

That red is the best! My cousin just got one and the handling around curves is flat as heck. Nice car but does need at least another 50-100+ horses. Cool that your brother and you can share a similar hobby. My bros and I do too!

I don't know how you winter people do it. I can't stand not driving my Exige at least three times a week. How can you guys not drive your car for 5 months...the agony of waiting.

If you are serious about this comment, then you should visit this link I am posting. These are some really great guys who are very local to me and have done alot of work for me. the claim to have some of the best boost options for the BRZ/FRS. Give them a call and ask for a guy named Hal, and if he is not avalible ask for Dustin and tell him I ask you to call. My name is Dewey. See what they can do for you. You can also look up some videos of their Z33 drag car on youtube when they were under the name of Injected Performance.
There is also a pretty cool picture of my Exige on their dyo a few months ago fo a baseline fun in their blog section about four pages back.
