#2030 of 2039 Cars are addicting!!!!!

LMAO!!!! I just met some a Scion owner who stripped out her heavily customized tC. Just so she can get new EVO. I bought her carbon fiber gauge pod & side wind spilters for $450.00. Now I have to buy gauges, C.F. hood, C.F. front wind spilter, and possibly new Toyota ground effects side skirts. That's about 1,800s. LOL

These are the wind spiltters: They aren't heavy but they are least 6'3 feet long. I kept accidently hitting them around the house. LOL
The gauge pod:
I even waxed everything before repacking them into the boxes...
#2032 of 2039 2010 tC with traction/electronic stability control?
Jul 27, 2009 (5:50 pm)
There's been NO activity in this post room at all for quite a while. What's up with that?
My question concerns the 2010 model tC:
According to the September '09 issue of Motor Trend magazine the new model year tC will now feature stability/electronic stability control. This is great, speaking for myself. I always wondered why Toyota never gave this model stability/esc in the first place. Anyway, I seek confirmation of this from anyone in the know: Is what MT states about these additions for the '10 tC true, or just another mis-step by MT?
According to Scion reps such an addition to the tC isn't in the cards, but then again I may have connected with a rep who knows less about such things than some of you out there. Know what I mean?
Please inform. I'd really appreciate it. I'd like to purchase a tC...it seems to be a simple, yet value packed machine...stability and esc would make it all the more attractive for yours truly!
#2033 of 2039 Fair price for 2008 TC?
Aug 03, 2009 (6:22 pm)
This will be my first time to sell a used car, so hopefully I can get some good advice. My wife has a white, 2008 Scion Tc with 3,500 city miles. Like new condition. We bought it in April of last year. My work is going to send us abroad for the next five years, so I need to look into selling it. I've looked at the KBB and Edmunds values and they tell me between $14,000-$16,500 are ballpark figures.
Since I will be selling my car on my own (and first time doing this) I'm hoping that someone can:
A. Help me out with what they feel would be a reasonable price for the vehicle
B. Give me any advice or tips they feel would be important for a first-time seller.
Any insight is most appreciated! Thanks a lot in advance.
#2034 of 2039 rocks and rim check
Apr 27, 2010 (6:31 am)
Yeah I know how you feel, a rock just hit my window the other day while I was driving, and I curb checked the rims on my new scion... it sucks. If anyone has any rims they are selling let me know at Cyber Scion

Hey I saw your post and I figured I could help you out,
I am the Scion Manager at Eastern Shore Toyota and with that mileage, that sounds about right...I'm not sure if you will get the maximum KBB value though (As I am sure you already know...), I'm not saying you won't for sure, it's just not always that easy in a short time (Even though 14 for an 08 tC with only 3500 miles on it would be a steal for someone). I wanted to give you a site that you could find more info and post your car for free, maybe it will help you sell it, we have had success with it in the past. Cyber Scion
#2036 of 2039 Luggage Cover
Jun 28, 2010 (1:49 pm)
I just took delivery of my 2010 tC. Love it, except for the luggage cover, which looks flimsy, is awkward to open and "flops" between the anchors on the passenger side, leaving an unsightly gap. I had a 2006 Tiburon, whose cover raised and lowered with the hatch door. When I needed to carry something bulky, it was easy to remove and later to reinstall. Does anyone know of an after-market accessory that can hide the clutter?
#2037 of 2039 Scion TC Lease Question
Jul 26, 2010 (7:12 pm)
Can anyone tell me if there is room to negotiate on the nationally advertised lease. Right now it says $906 down, $265/mth, 36 mths, 15K per year. I know there is ALWAYS room to negotiate on cars, but this is my first dealings with a Scion and I am doing the research for my niece. Can I expect to go into dealership and negotiate a better deal? Any help would be appreciated. P.S. I am on Long Island, NY. Thanks

was your Hyundai Tiburon a manual transmission? Or an automatic? Hyundai is having a terrible time with the clutches prematurely burning out in their 2003+ Tibby's. I do like the Tiburon's bodystyle, yes, but I like the Scion tC's just as much.
