Dont look at specs, go drive both. And tell us what you think

Here's a shot of my friend having a bit of fun earlier



I'm just now getting back from cruising around the city for about an hour. He let me take if for a nice cruise around to get a feel for it on the road. Again, VERY tossable, great oversteer control, ZERO understeer, and amazing steering response. I wasn't going fast enough to really test the brakes much but they felt quite decent at slower speeds.

I wasn't even considering a car like this in the back of my mind but I'm somewhat interested after today's adventures haha. No input for you on the Lexus though as I've never driven one. I wouldn't really want to either. Boat of a car in comparison. The nimbleness of the FRS is probably the best part.

First mod: TURBO!!!

I mean, only 150 torque kind of begs for it. It seems like there's definitely enough room to fit a few turbo mods. Anyone working on its CPU flash?

Edit: I had a GTI for a while and really like the mid-ranged power fun-to-drive cars. After school I'm looking for an affordable but enjoyable everyday driver. But, I'm craving RWD. GTI was fun but FWD
