    OMG.. my friend, who owns the 2013 Scion FR-S..
    asked me that "What can you really do with the Tacoma?"
    "Does it look good as sports cars? No it doesn't"
    'Who drives a truck (Tacoma) to go to movies to show off? "

    Really hurt my feeling.

    "Does FR-S can load 1235 lb and pull(tow) over 6,400 lb?"
    "Does FR-S can go (off road) mud ride? or climb hills?"
    "Does FR-S can show off on the beach like Tacoma?"
    "Is FR-S v6?"

    my question is

    What is so great about FR-S??

    I Think Tacoma is LOT sexier than FR-S.
    BULLDOG LOOKING (2012+ Tacoma) IS SO ATTRACTIVE.
    (2005 -2011) halos are gorgeous!!

    Different strokes for different folks. The frs is a sweet looking car. But is too impractical.

    I find any car impractical. Because I can't pull a trailer or throw my dirt bike in the back. Or haul shit when I need to. Or traverse a trail or unimproved road when I need to.

    Your friend has a shitty argument though. Sounds like he is some superficial douche that needs to show off to make up for whatever insecurities he possesses.

    But whatever.

    I wouldn't compare the two, they're two different animals.

    But....

    If I were you I'd tell him: "yours can go fast, but mine can go anywhere"

    It's a handling car, like the RX-8 and MX-5 Miata. But yeah, I'd get a Genesis 2.0T coupe instead.

    I tried to plug that rant in on the Google translate page but it said it couldn't detect the language.
