    Hey all, my name is Matt and I'm picking up my first Tacoma on Friday. I'm transitioning from a 2006 Honda S2000 - I love the car but am tired of not being able to use it for any practical purposes. My parents have a 2008 Highlander which I love driving, so that made me decide to test drive a Taco. Needless to say, I worked out a great deal on a trade in and am only paying $8900 difference between the S2000 and a brand new 2011 Tacoma TRD Sport Double Cab Long Bed (Super White). I'll post some pics as soon as I get it.

    I've done a lot of browsing on this forum and find it very informative thus far. I may have some questions in the near future about an audio system install, but otherwise I just thought I'd check in and say hello for now. :cool:

    Im getting there......
    hate to break it to you but those all should have come standard with the trd sport package.....so really if they "threw those in" for extra they just faked that for a buying incentive

    The mats and toyoguard are not listed under the Sport package, and the other ones I looked at @ other dealerships did not include them, for whatever that's worth. Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and 06tacotrd I'm glad someone else can relate. :)
