of all the cars to mod, why supercharge an xb?
oh wait, you race the rough shifting accord hybrid.
anyone who knows anything about hybrids wouldn't try anything against an accord hybrid anyway.

Holy smokes! He has 70,000 miles on a car that has been around about four months? Surely you mean 7000, not 70,000, and even then he must drive a lot!
I could see ordering the S/C for the xB and really wowing your friends with some drag racing. Of course, after that installation you will get about the same gas mileage as an early-90s Previa.
July xB sales, down 20% from last year's same-month sales. July was a down month industry-wide, and one month does not tell the story of any model on the market, but still Toyota can't be too happy.

i only looked at the rav4 sales and found they made a mistake. i hope it's a typo and not what the auditors used for their share holders. the work sheet showed sales down this july compared to last july, but it showed a +2.3%
#279 of 312 Aftermarket center console for 2008?
Sep 09, 2007 (8:43 am)
Does anyone know if there is a taller aftermarket center console available for the 2008 xb? I love this car but a taller center console-armrest would go a long way in making it more comfortable. I'm not too fond of the fold down armrest either.
#280 of 312 Cargo Floor in the xB

I would imagine this issue has been discussed before but I couldn't find it.
I have been a DJ for a long time. (I am approaching 60 ... grin.) I am downsizing my DJ setup and as a result, I can drive something smaller than a minivan. I have been considering an Element but, when I drove one, there were several things I didn't like about it.
My concern with the xB is the cargo floor. I am not sure it would stand up to the weight of my equipment.
I have also considered the Jeep Wrangler 4-door. Does anyone have any comments about the xB's cargo floor or about other options I should consider?
Thanks in advance.

I have a couple of speakers that are about 50 pounds each. My main case is about 40 pounds and then I carry a couple of boxes of cables and accessories that are about 30 pounds each.
