First BRZ Owners, Revisited


We contacted Dennis Cwik and Elbert Perez – who took delivery of the first two BRZs in the country – to get a report on their first few months with their cars. (Read their first letters in Drive Performance Version 9.2.)


Cwik’s overall comment was, “My BRZ is still holding up strong, and as fun as ever :).”


Perez seconded that feeling: “I love my BRZ! It’s amazing how much support there is out there for the car.


“I have customized my BRZ to fit my style and needs. It’s truly an enthusiast car, and the community that surrounds the car is amazing.


“This photo shows how fun the BRZ is. Even the spectator was smiling as I crushed a cone in autocross.”




When asked what modifications he has made, Elbert Perez sent this list.
