Wally Rohde: 2013 Subaru BRZ

In the winter of 2012, Wally Rohde was looking at a Nissan 370Z to buy. As Rohde sat in a 370Z during a test drive, he drove by a Subaru dealership and the BRZ caught his eye. Rohde didn't buy the 370Z that day because the color he wanted wasn't in stock, and it would take a couple days to find the color he wanted. While waiting, Rohde decided to test drive the BRZ. He fell in love with it the first moment he went off the lot. The Subaru dealership didn't have the color he wanted, but they were getting new cars in the next few days.

Rohde knew he wanted to build a show car before he even bought the 2013 Subaru BRZ Limited Edition. The first modification he installed was AirLift struts and a RideTech air pod. He couldn't buy his preferred wheels at the time because he had to see what the specs would be after the air was installed. At this time, there were only a couple of BRZs on air in the US. As a result, he knew he had the opportunity to build a car that would stand-out.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION
I really like my Noblesse body kit. You see a lot of BRZs/FR-Ss doing the Rocket Bunny kit. There are only a small handful of people with this kit world wide. It's very unique and changes the entire look of the car.
