    I just detailed my 08 Pre-Runner this weekend and got some nice pics of it. This is my first vehicle that I have ever made modifications to so I am pretty proud of the truck and my work right now.

    Check out my photos... :D

    I was a detailer for about 3 years.. can't stand a nasty vehicle, when I had that job I would clean mine every 2 weeks or so - inside and out.

    Useless fact:
    Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.

    Pisses me off that Toyota discontinued Indigo Ink In my opinion, it was the best color there was. Oh well, looking forward to seeing the grey in person.

    You must really like chrome.

    I really like the chrome because it just "pops" on the indigo color.

    The XDi was pretty easy to install. Took me about an hour to an hour and a half, but only because I am not a gear head. If you are familiar with the inside of your engine I could see someone doing it in 20-30min.

    As far as preformance...The sound is amazing. It sounds like my truck is on a roid rage when I gas it up. Im still working on seeing how the gas millage might improve.

    I agree about the chrome, but black wouldn't go with that color so he has no choice.

    I will be interested to see how the mileage numbers come out. Keep us posted!
