    mpg

    Sorry for the delay in replying but thanks for all your replies. I've still not bought a car yet, was just about to but now I have a back ache, so the BRZ may not be the best choice. To sum up, from your posts, it looks like a general mpg of 37 and over 40 if you keep the revs down.

    Thanks for the updates Aussie.

    Your thoughts on the BRZ

    I thought that Subaru designed the car but Toyota did the engine management, am I wrong? Additionally, is it built completely by Subaru, and Toyota just alter the suspension on their GT86?

    Aussie Ed, where did you buy your BRZ and what do you think of the dealer?

    2016 Subaru BRZ

    Just a shame about the size of the boot door, for a sports car the boot, especially with the rear seats down, is quite large. I had hoped that it would be a hatchback, but I suppose that would diminish the rigidity of the chassis?

    mpg

    This figure is quoted in the pdf that I obtained from this link:- http://www.subaru.com/content/downloads/pdf/brochures/2015_Subaru_BRZ.pdf I can't remember how I found the link. However, the brochure that my Subaru garage sent me and the download link that Subaru sent me both state that the combined mpg is at least 36 and agrees with the Toyota figure.

    Subaru state that the combined mpg is 25, whereas Toyota state that their GT86 is 36!!! They are basically the same car but the Toyota figure does sound rather low, so I wonder if anyone has experience of driving a BRZ?

    Changing the clutch

    Jacking up the car is a bit tedious but not a problem, but the tricky bits are lowering the gearbox onto my chest, I once dropped it onto my face, and offering up the gearbox after replacing the clutch. The only time that the latter was easy was when I aligned the splines using an old input shaft, the other thing that I did on a Sierra clutch was to file a tiny chamfer on the back end of the clutch splines.

    Changing the clutch

    Just thinking about running costs and wondered if the gearbox can be removed from under the car and hence do it myself, or is it an engine-out job?
  10. I just wondered if anyone has had experience of Norwich Constitution Motors:- http://www.constitutionmotors-subaru.co.uk That is buying a new car and or service?

    Timing belt kit

    I don't know anything about the car but if you are going to do the job yourself, I would have thought that you should get the timing checked afterwards.

    I hope this is OK but I own a Corolla that I bought from new, but after 17 years, I am now thinking of replacing it with a new BRZ and looking for info and advice.
