4: Headlights are gorgeous, perform well

There’s no denying the wonderful performance of the BRZ’s headlights. The high-intensity discharge units light up the road and street signs at night in a way that no regular halogens could. They have a great cut-off, and the BRZ’s low riding height also mean you won’t be blinding any other drivers.

Look into the housing, and you’ll catch a gorgeous C-shaped pattern. It looks so great, and the LED day-time running lights add a touch of sophistication and elegance this budget boy-racer could use.

    Disagree on the trim.  The Premium makes more sense to me.  The leather interior is not that nice, the heated seats add weight, the spoiler doesn’t create any actual downforce.  The stock controls are simple and work nicely, and who needs dual climate control in a car in which you can reach both doors without stretching?   Plus, you can take the extra $2,000 the Limited trim costs and buy a good cold air intake (upping horsepower by 10+ and getting better engine sound) and a full set of wheels and snow tires for winter.
