Why so expensive. I thought it started around 25k. Are they putting on a dealer markup?

"On one hand Its the engine I want = FRS but on the other hand if one is paying 28,300 shouldn't I just pay 31,500 for the additional accessories on the BRZ? "
KISS...Keep it simple, Sharkiemd...
I own the 6-speed MT FR-S and have decided in the last 2 months of wonership that the fewer gadgets on this car the better. The FR-S/BRZ twins were designed to be driven with no distractions - just sit down, stare straight ahead and go. I really like that my car has no steering wheel buttons, very simple HVAC controls, sticky cloth seats and easy to glance at gauges; keeping it simple.
Fog lights are not missed since you are only 15" above the pavement and the standard headlamps are very bright. Go for the Scion and remember the aftermarket for these cars is already bursting with goodies, so there will always be opportunities to add shiny bits later.
