Smile My New Car

So as some may know my car was totaled about two weeks ago, and now I've just bought a brand 06 scion tC for 18,800 out the door (pretty good since I have an 8000 dollar check coming in for my last car and a settlement for my hand as well). It was so new the truck with the car pulled in straight from Japan a hour before I bought it, no one test drove it but me. Anyway, enough talk I know how you guys just love pics....

nice car and they are pretty quick but that thing needs a spoiler and to be lowered. There are so many options you can put on that car but it is nice.

Well I already have a few things in line to put on there. First ofcourse is a window tint duh with that I am going to smoke the tails and 3rd tail light. The pay check after that I might go with the borla exhaust and the lip spoiler. The next pay check after that 1.0-1.5" lower, I drive 100+ mi a day so I need it to be drivable. and so on and so on.

Nice choice of a car. Now I guess you gotta join up on Scionlife.com

How's your thumb doing? Is it healing up good?

I didn't know there was a scionlife I signed up for yousciontc.com which is ok nothing like this site though...I plan on staying here though because I know where my loyalties lie.

My thumb is alright it's going to be in a cast for the next 6 to 8 weeks bummer for my summer and one of my summer jobs (lifeguarding). I'm going to the doctor tuesday to get the stiches removed and another evaluation. but all is good.

I have just put some parts up for sell incase anyone is wondering...

That Scion is Hot.. I wanted one so bad and then looked at the EPA numbers.. Only 30 MPG for a car that does 0-60 in 8.5 seconds?? If Toyota could pump another 70 horses out of that engine I would have been more forgiving of the V6-like fuel numbers.

fixed your 0-60 time.

good choice on the car bigmurr, looks just like mine (same color too). i noticed you were thinking about the borla exhaust, might look at the tsudo catback too ($300 shipped, high quality), check it out on SL.
