This is random but the BRZ compared to a 2000 528i BMW, how big is the difference in performance.

 

How much HP can I get out of the BRZ with an automatic transmission?

 

What aftermarket parts should I get no matter what?

 

What better for this car Turbo or Super charger?

The BRZ will be a fair bit faster.

Probably 250-260bhp, though why you'd want to dirty one of the best affordable driver's cars in the world with a rubbish gearbox is beyond me.

That's largely up to you, there's a huge market for these cars but for me the first thing would be junking the god-awful OEM spoiler for a TRD/Evasive style ducktail.

Bolt on supercharger conversions are about £9k including fitting and will give up to 320hp. Turbo I think there are a few kits on the market but if you want more power you'd need to rebuild the engine for low compression with forged rods at least and the supercharger will have a better power band below that.



As an inside, please use the car talk thread for questions like this in future.

BRZ with an automatic is like non-alcoholic beer.

Looses all of it's superpowers.

Just my two cents.

Dual clutches.

Dual clutch gearboxes aren't automatics, they're robotised manuals ;)

This is the differentiator for me.

 

Automatics are like Apple products: more money for less input and less understanding.

Or you should study a bit more on the topic and come back with a post that doesn't make you seem so foolish. Instead, it's like a 12 year old that just got done playing a round of NFS: Underground. 

Firstly, how old are you? Should you even be considering these cars to begin with?

Secondly, why would you be looking at an automatic BRZ?

I'm 17, and I want a automatic BRZ cause I dislike stick shifts.

 

And what is so foolish? I owned a BMW which was a really fun car and I was curious what the performance difference would be. As too the question of max HP for a auto it seems that the most is 275, I wanted to know what aftermarket parts would be good for this car, and I was curious if any one liked the turbo or supercharger more on the BRZ.

Look very carefully...you may spot a pattern.

you 'dislike" manuals? You don't sound like you're ready for a performance car like this, if you're unable to operate a manual transmission you shouldn't be looking to have a sh*t-ton of horsepower, it's useless in an auto anyways

I'm pretty sure that's a quote from Bambi.
