Kits are manufactured on-demand. Workshop 12 manufactures some components in-house and also outsources printing of the driver-exposed plastics to Shapeways.
Shapeways typically have a 3-4 week turnaround time from when an order is placed until the plastics are ready to be returned to Workshop 12.

If you have a 2017+ model with a single top dash piece or updated 2018+ design instead of the earlier model 2-piece design, you will need to pick up an older model dash piece above the glove compartment (Part No: 66077CA030 or equivalent).
- The MK2 version of the Brainiac system for the FRS/BRZ/86 is currently available only for vehicles that come equipped with automatic dual-zone climate control modules.
We've been listening to lots of feedback since our MK1 version and have now produced a version at a lower cost with more features! MK2 provides additional design updates complete with a sturdy magnetic face plate that allows for easy access to the tablet installed in your dashboard.
Installing Brainiac Plastics
We've pulled together a video to show the step-by-step process of installing the MK2 Brainiac plastics into your FRS/BRZ/86 which is similar to performing an aftermarket stereo installation.
NOTE: The Samsung S3 tablet must be positioned upside-down in the cradle to allow for headphone and USB-C connections.
The Brainiac MK1 plastics for the FRS/BRZ/86 are designed to securely hold a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7" or the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 9.7" tablet in your dashboard creating a sleek factory integrated look. The starting point is to acquire one of these tablets if you do not already have one.
This tablet is not included in the kit.
(The Samsung S3 tablet is positioned upside-down in the cradle)
