As the stock ecu\'s will be so easily modified to allow for power-ups an aftermarket ecu won\'t be required for big powerups like turbo/superchargers

Pretty clever decision imo leaving it n/a, avoids any warranty issues for Toyota/Subaru up to these 3rd parties, I\'d say there will be so many b]power up[/b] options available shortly, the problem will just be choosing which one.

Seriously, is this what kids are calling it these days.

Too much Mario Kart.

Too much Old Man

Drove one Saturday. Was fun. Cute. Reminded me of an MX5 bred with an RX8; In need of a bit more urgency and left me wanting to style hair.

Was it really stock ?

Motor magazine recently tested one and it was 2sec a lap slower than a Golf GTI around Sydney Motorsport Park.

;D

Golf GTI is turbo though, yes? Aaand has about an extra 30kw on it? And it was only 2 sec faster?

Golf has only 8kW more plus 75Nm and carries an extra 120kg, so 2sec is pretty good.

I get the impression that a good car in your estimation would be the one that ran him over.
