The full owners manual for the new Subaru BRZ hit the web today courtesy of self proclaimed “performance dealership”, Subaru of Keene in New Hampshire.

The latest development in the upcoming new Subaru release is that the BRZ will be coming to America in limited quantities. Using this as its angle Subaru of Keene posted the full owners manual for the car online, as well as adding in some large “order me now” buttons for potential buyers. The dealership also wants its customers to know that, “Just finding one of these cars (BRZ) could be a full-time job. Subaru of Keene is a performance dealer and will give priority to customers who pre-order.” The supposed limited quantity of BRZs is helping the company gain some momentum in sales by taking lots of pre-orders based on fear that the car won’t be easy to find once it arrives.

The owners manual itself is nothing out of the ordinary, filled with the customary instructions on how to start the car, use the infotainment system and complete other tasks in the car.

It does have one interesting section which informs drivers, “In the following conditions, the engine speed may become high while driving. This is due to automatic up-shifting control or down-shifting implementation to meet driving conditions. It does not indicate sudden acceleration.” Toyota may be a little bitter still about the unintended accleration lawsuits they have been going through, and want to make sure that there is no mistaking the cars performance oriented transmission for unintended acceleration.

The dealerships web page, which features the owners manual also carries a link to ft86club.com, where a full list of BRZ accessories is available with pricing. The options are what you would expect for this type of sports car, spoiler options, chrome fender and door trim, rear bumper applique and underskirt and infotainment options. For the full list with pricing, check out the gallery below.

The BRZ will be coming to a dealership near you soon, but according to Subaru of Keene, “If you wait for pricing, there is little chance of getting a BRZ in 2012.”
