    So essentially sweet fuk all...



    Most guys on here would be changing the rims (there butt ugly), and maybe the seat and stereo anyway.....



    The standard GT86's interior seems nice enough, so I would take the "povo pack" if they all have the same drivetrain.

    It's not really 7k more anyway as the Subaru included on road costs which is probably around 4.5k of the difference. And mechanically it is a GTS so it has the bigger brakes + wheels, higher spec headlights & drls than the gt, stiffer springs as mentioned etc. effectively it is priced between the gt and GTS and delivers somewhere in between as far as equipment.

    In the end it's a moot point as they are sold out of this year's allocation
