    Hello! I am new to the Toyota forums, but definitely not new to forums ( I know how to use the search :) )

    I had owned a 2004 BMW M3 for about two years. I absolutely loved the car (still love the car), but here in Rhode Island, the winters are just too hard for a RWD sports car. So, the car went in, and I brought back this 2009 DCSB TRD Sport. So far I am really loving the truck. Mods are coming already :D

    First picture is when I brought home the BMW. Second is after all the mods. Third requires no explanation.

    Enjoy!

    Congrats on the new truck, I'm sure you'll love the versatility/capability of it. Does the truck feel like a semi after being accustomed to that m3?

    More than ever! Definitely doesn't pull as hard haha... Steering and suspension is soft... But the truck is definitely more practical...

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    Welcome to TW, I like both rides, sucks you had to got rid of one, but you'll love the Tacoma just the same.
