Yeah got the FRS cause it was the best brand new car for the money, had it for about a year, and it was a great car good on gas, fun in the turns. Biggest issue was space its basically a 2 seater, there is no trunk. So if i had to go pick up parts or anything i had to drive home get my truck. With the S5 its got a huge trunk lol.

Plus its twice as quick and much more comfortable.

But glad to see i'm not the only one that made the switch

I miss it sometimes. I didn't worry about it as much as I do the Audi. I had a supercharger on it, coil overs and bags. It surprised people when they were expecting the typical slow 86.
But yeah, small and cramped. And nowhere near as nice as the Audi.
