You are in the Scion tC
What is this discussion about?
Scion tC, Convertible
Jul 03, 2006 (10:17 pm)
I'm including the Classic Silver or Silver Streak Mica or whatever Scion is calling the 2007 Scion tC Spec's variety of Silver on my short list. A car like the tC is just right for the silver color. It just fits the corners, angles and curves of the tC well.
I might entertain chrome wheels with the silver.
How are everyone's Bridgestone Potenza's holding up? Well? Are they only lasting you 20,000 miles? That's what research is saying so far. If that's the case I'll just go order a brand new tire and wheel set off the net for my tC Spec that will hold up beyond 20,000 miles. Is it rainy weather that wears them prematurely? Why are decent tires like Bridgestone Potenza's only lasting 20,000 miles? Or are they not decent tires at all. I think Yokohama makes a great tire as does Toyo. These Potenza's may not be very well made, huh?

tC again. Something about a flat $15,000 for a 2007 Scion tC Spec in either Classic Silver Metallic or Flint Mica and 5-speeds did it to me. Did I mention a flat fee of $15,000? I don't need any extra so that is what I'll pay.
Notice I typed that is what I'll pay, not that is what I would pay. Oh yeah, I've got it dug into my mind now that I want a tC.
Have y'all noticed that the Scion tC's value doesn't drop after you buy it, either? No kidding! I just did a Kelley Blue Book valuation on the 2005 Scion tC and it listed it's book price at $19,490! That must be a typo! Why would a year old Scion tC sell for more than my 2007 Scion tC Spec in 5-speeds and Flint Mica or Classic Silver Metallic?
I think Toyota is on to something big here.

light blue emoticons, actually. They sort of grow on you.
Why would a Scion tC gain value, though? Yikes.

As i know of the only tCs to gain value is the special edition ones.
u mean emotorcons? Heck i dont blame you time to ditch these emo cars for some newer ones perhaps animated...

Super White / Auto! My perfect combo, no options installed from the factory so now I get to add the exact ones that I want (They had another white one there but it was loaded with options - 21,3xx - and I didn't want everything that was on it.) I saw that one last w/end and was scouring the Mpls area Scion dealerships for another incoming white tC with no luck.... Well, I drive tru the same dealer that I saw the loaded white one at last week and they had just got a big batch of new Toyotas and Scions - including a white/auto tC! WOOHOO lucky me.
I am adding: fog lights, rear lip spoiler, iPod radio, door sill plates, blue LED interior lighting, wheel locks, bumper protecter thingy... can't wait!

cpngratulations! Post back here and let us know how you like it, OK? Have fun!

Nearly replaced the Bridgestones immediately on my tC based on all that I had read in/re their poor status. Decided to save the expense and get what I could out of them. Found the performance to be so-so but a little better than my very low expectations. A hole in the side wall at 23k miles (tread still looked deccent)provided the opportunity to switch to P Zero Nero's.
Here again, expectations governed by what I had read were not quite met. The P's are louder than I expected, wet roads are marginaly better as far as I can tell as of yet, no snow experience yet, but I can say there is a huge difference in handling (for the better) and at a much lower cost.
Hoping that the tread wear is satisfactory, time will tell. All things considered, the Zero's are the far better choice - better performance (how much is subjective) at a more reasonable cost.

thanks for that information. I'll keep it in mind if I go with a Scion tC and probably switch out from the stock tires ASAP.
#1713 of 2039 Question about tire wear
Jul 24, 2006 (2:32 pm)
Hello everyone and I was wondering if the new Spec Tc which has 16 inch steel wheels as opposed to the 17s on the regular Tc has the same tires? I was hoping that they would give better wear if they are a different brand or specification????
