    The world is flat: altoid's BRZ

    Finally.

    After a decade of threatening to do so, while buying two other cars and two motorcycles, I actually bought a BRZ.

    The important bits: 2018, World Rally Blue, manual, Limited, Performance Package, STI short shifter.

    The important future bits: SERBARU vanity plate on its way (hat tip to IceBone), wheels will become gold at some point soon (plastidip?), mods minimal for years to come, probably.

    Her name is Ekatarina, an old Serbian form of "Catherine" which means "pure", and she's a hell of a ride.

    And the only thing anyone really cares about: pictures!

    Sittin' pretty at the dealership:

    Nicely done, I'm very happy for you, that you chose this over a GTI.




    Wait, wait... two motorcycles??

      This color is so nice.
      Also, really nice name you gave her. .

                      Oh right. That was so long ago that I forgot Somehow I got an impression from your post that you still have an SV.

                              I concur, great color and choice of wheels.

                                You guys are congratulating me on the wheels like I had a choice. These are the Performance Package wheels, the only ones available, and I'm not too wild about them. They'll probably look better in gold, though.

                                  I am so glad for you. And so envious. Be safe and enjoy the hell out of it. Goals!

                                    I thought they were aftermarket. I don't like the normal wheels that come with the car here, and I had never the ones from the performance package.

                                    Looking at the Subaru Canada web site, it looks like here they come with the BRZ Sport-tech RS.

                                      Congrats on a sweet ride! Here's a little something so that you have a better idea of how it might look with golden wheels:
