Botched launch...again?

#21
I traded in my FBO/Tuned 2008 E90 M3 for this car. Most people I tell that to think I'm crazy, what I think was crazy was spending over $12K CAD on that car just on maintenance and repairs in a 12 month period. I have no complaints with the N! lol.

And no, I didn't trade it in with any of the mods I had on it, I stripped everything I could off of it haha.

Hello. I made the same change as you and lots of people said me I was insane too. I miss my ex ///M3 E90 but I love my new i30N Performance. The ///M3 E9X has a terrible fuel consumption and so much endemic problems (bad rod bearings, bad throttle actuators, oil comsumption,...) I enjoyed it for 15 months. It was a good car and a great experience.

I have an STX prepped BRZ, I am kind of worried that if I switch I'll miss how direct the steering is in the BRZ. I mean it's damn near impossible for the N to slower than my BRZ

The steering feel on the VN has got to be some of the best I’ve ever felt . I saw someone compare it to precision of a scalpel and I couldn’t put the feel in words any better myself. You will not miss the BRZ trust me !

Unsure of how the STX are set up but I've driven friends 86 / BRZ and was never jealous when I jumped back into my i30N. Those naturally aspirated go karts are fun in the corners for being light and nimble but the N is leaps and bounds ahead in fun as well as performance in a straight line and around the bends.

Take a chance and never look back!

Well you might look back occasionally.. to see how far the person behind you is when you pull busses on them in your N lol

STX is a class in American autocross , it stands for street touring extreme and is the second highest modification class is the street series. It's mostly dominated by brzs/86s now. I honestly am only considering trading the BRZ because I need to be able to fit a car seat in my daily now.

I am still waiting for this dealership to get one.

If someone is behind me in autocross or rally cross I've really messed up

I got an email today that my dealership should be getting a black one and a blue one in this month, but they also said they're automatics so grain of salt. Wouldn't answer my question on price, hopefully no ADM
