Scion’s FR-S is red hot right now. And its Fuji Heavy Industries’ fraternal twin, the Subaru BRZ. Why? Rear wheel drive. It is the first reasonably-priced rear wheel drive proper sports car at a reasonable price in quite some time. Why rear wheel drive? Guys prefer oversteer to understeer. What does that mean? The car will drift! Get sideways! Wiggle around! Car surfing! It makes for a lot of fun on a back road.
What isn’t cool about the FR-S? The standard head unit. It looks so grafted on. Like Toyota found a bin of leftover radios at the plant before Tesla took it over. There is an upgraded Bespoke audio system that is a step in the right direction priced at $845. But if you want to go all out Scosche to the rescue with a mounting kit for aftermarket equipment. According to Scosche “For a seamless installation of an aftermarket head unit, the SCN4202B will accommodate an ISO Double-DIN or single DIN mount with included pocket. The kit is made with automotive grade, high strength, high temp ABS material. The kit comes with a pocket and mounting brackets making an aftermarket installation simple.”
Because the only thing the FR-S needs is a nice Alpine, Clarion, Blaupunkt, Pioneer, or Kenwood top-of-the-line head unit.
